Nissan is recalling more than 9,000 2015 Murano crossovers to fix a braking problem. The company says the anti-lock braking system (ABS) could fail and increase the risk of a crash.
According to NHTSA documents, the issue stems from the ABS actuators that may have contaminated solenoid valves. It could potentially cause the hydraulic brake pressure to either build up or drop too low, which could destabilize the system and increase the risk of a brake malfunction.
“Under some driving conditions, when the ABS is activated, the malfunctioning ABS actuator could cause a loss of vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash,” Nissan notes in its recall documents.
The recall impacts an estimated 9,614 Murano SUVs in the United States built between December 4, 2014, and March 17, 2015. Owners can take their vehicles to dealers who will inspect the ABS actuators and replace them if needed.
Nissan will notify owners in early August when the recall gets underway. Owners may also contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261. Meanwhile, dealers have been ordered to stop selling any affected vehicles until the problem is addressed.
