Nissan Recalling Pathfinder, Infiniti JX

April 24, 2013

Nissan North America is recalling 19,258 2013 model-year Pathfinder and Infiniti JX vehicles because of a potential braking problem, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The vehicles in the recall were manufactured from Dec. 3, 2012, through Jan. 29, 2013. The front brake torque member was improperly cast, resulting in structural weakness. This can lead to premature failure and cracking, NHTSA said.If the brake torque member fails, the brake caliper may move and contact the inside of the road wheel, resulting in reduced braking.

Nissan dealers will inspect the manufacturing date of the torque members and replace them, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early May.

Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
