Some 153,000 vehicles from the 2013 and ’14 model years are affected by this action. A problem can occur during light braking on rough or otherwise uneven roads. Instead of helping eradicate speed the anti-lock system can actually result in longer-than-expected stopping distances, something that could result in a crash.
Nissan conducted tests this summer to find out what was going on and found out that the effect of the issue was minimal and that the vehicles in question still met safety standards. Still, a running change was made on the assembly line back in September, so earlier this month the company decided to conduct a recall.
For owners there’s good news on two fronts. First, the problem is minor and second all it takes to correct the issue is a software update. Nissan will begin notifying customers over the next two months about this call-back.
