Nissan is recalling 334 2014 model-year Nissan Pathfinder and Rogue SUVs, as well as 2014-MY Infiniti QX60 SUVs, because they are at risk of having a wheel separation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

The right-side wheels of these vehicles may have a lug nut that was improperly tightened. If that lug nut falls off as a result, the other lug nuts may also become loose and pose a wheel-separation risk, NHTSA said.

To fix the problem, Nissan dealers will inspect and tighten any loose lug nuts to the correct specification. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin by the end of this month. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
