394,025 Nissan cars were voluntarily recalled by the Japanese motor company due to braking system defects across the United States.
According to Reuters, a major worry among Nissan manufacturers and consumers alike stemming from the faulty brake systems is the possibility of brake fluid leaks causing vehicle fires; although, the actual reality of fire incidents has been reported as “rare” by Nissan.
If the brake fluids were to seep into vehicle circuit boards, a warning alert would be sent to driver notifying them of the possible fire hazard. Nissan automakers revealed that ignoring this critical warning could expedite the situation by causing an electrical short in the actuator circuit.
Fortunately, a solution to this hazard is being worked upon and car owners will be notified soon. Once the notice is made available, car owners should bring their vehicles to Nissan dealers or INFINTI retailers to have repairs done.
Drivers have enough to worry about while traversing the roadways on a daily basis. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, there is a reasonable expectation that the car is going to perform in a matter that would not put the operator’s life in jeopardy. Unfortunately there are hundreds of vehicle recalls each year due to manufacturer defects, from the tires to the ignition switches, that can cause catastrophic injuries and in some cases death.
