Nissan Recalls Murano for Stability Risk

Nissan North America is recalling 9,614 2015 model-year Nissan Murano SUVs because they may be at risk for a loss of vehicle stability, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

The recalled vehicles are equipped with anti-lock braking system (ABS) actuators that may have contamination in the solenoid valves. This condition may affect the valves’ ability to completely close and allow a buildup of hydraulic brake pressure. Or the valves’ ability to fully open may be affected, permitting the hydraulic brake pressure to completely drop, NHTSA said.

Under some driving conditions, when the ABS is activated, the malfunctioning ABS actuator could cause a loss of vehicle stability, NHTSA said. This increases the risk of a crash.

The SUVs at issue were manufactured from Dec. 4, 2014, to March 17 of this year.

Nissan dealers will inspect and replace the ABS actuator, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by early August. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
