Nissan North America is recalling 56,766 Murano SUVs in the 2013 and 2014 model years because of a potential fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
In these vehicles, the power steering hose clamp may not adequately secure the hose. As a result, the hose might detach and leak power steering fluid. This condition poses a fire risk.
“If the power steering fluid leaks onto a heat source such as a hot engine or exhaust components, there could be an increased risk of a fire,” NHTSA warned on its website.
Nissan dealers will install a power-steering high-pressure hose kit to address the problem. There will be no charge for this service. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
