Nissan recall involves the 2017 Nissan Murano

Nissan and its luxury brand, Infiniti, are recalling 215,124 vehicles to potentially replace a brake component that could cause a fire if brake fluid leaks onto a circuit board.

This recall involves the 2015 to 2017 Nissan Murano SUV, 2016 to 2017 Nissan Maxima sedan, 2017 to 2018 Nissan Pathfinder SUV, and 2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV.

Nissan says the antilock brake actuator pump, which regulates the fluid pressure during braking, could leak fluid through what should be a tight seal.

When a leak occurs, Nissan says, the ABS warning lamp will illuminate on the dashboard for more than 10 seconds after the engine has been started. If this happens, the automaker advises that the owner park the vehicle outside and contact Nissan Roadside Assistance (800-647-7261, press option 1) to have the vehicle towed to a Nissan service department.

Owners will be notified in October to take their vehicle to a dealership, where the component will be replaced, if necessary, free of charge.
