Nissan Recalls 134K Maxima, Murano Models Over Fire Risk
Nissan is calling back about 134,000 vehicles over a fire risk and is instructing some owners to keep their vehicles parked until they can be fixed.
The issue stems from Nissan’s Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) system, which features an anti-lock brake actuator pump that may end up leaking brake fluid onto an internal circuit board, possibly leading to a fire. Only versions of the 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima, 2015-2017 Murano and 2015-2016 Murano Hybrid fitted with ICC are affected by this recall.
Nissan says no injuries or fatalities have been reported as a result of this problem, though there have been some reports of “thermal damage.”
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has instructed owners to park their vehicles and not drive them if the ABS light stays illuminated for more than 10 seconds after the engine has been started. Nissan dealers will replace the ABS actuators free of charge on the affected vehicles.
