Nissan Recalls 2013 Pathfinder & Infiniti JX SUVs

nissanNissan is recalling more than 19,258 model-year 2013 Pathfinder and Infiniti JX SUVs due to a problem that could result in reduced braking, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vehicles were manufactured between Dec. 3, 2012, and Jan. 29, 2013. In these impacted cars the front brake torque member was improperly cast, resulting in structural weakness; this can lead to premature failure and cracking. If the part fails, the brake caliper could move and contact the inside of the road wheel, resulting in reduced braking and increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan will begin notifying owners in early May, and dealers will replace the parts for free. The investigation was prompted by a field report in March of a braking failure, the Detroit News reported.

Owners can contact Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA at 888-327-4236.

    We are thinking of purchasing a Nissan Pathfinder. I did noticed the recall. Would we be better off waiting until the 2014 comes out. Do you have any suggestions or comments about this vehicle.
    We will be trading in a 2010 Toyota Camry.

      Diane, I loved the Pathfinder, if you read my review of the 2013, you’ll see I loved it BUT had a problem with the transmission. I expect a report back from Nissan this week on what happened. I don’t think it is a widespread problem, but want to know for sure.

      I plan to do another update on the Pathfinder review page when I get the data.

      Thanks for listening to the show.
