According to Consumer Reports, nearly 400,000 vehicles from the popular Japanese car manufacturers Nissan and their luxury subdivision Infiniti are being recalled over serious brake defaults. Inadequate braking systems within the cars have higher chances of excreting brake fluids that may seep into internal vehicle parts and become more likely to ignite a flame.
This is the second recall of many of these Nissan vehicles as a similar issue with the braking systems occurred in September 2018. Owners of the vehicles are being advised to take their cars to dealers for inspection and repair despite whether or not they have already done so with the first recall in 2018.
As of present day, Nissan has yet to confirm or acknowledge any actual fires or incidents arising from this issue.
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.
