WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Nissan is recalling nearly 363,000 MY 2003-2007 Murano vehicles because of an engine issue.
The intake air ducts, which are connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This separation occurs because of the premature aging of the material used in the intake air ducts, which causes excessive shrinking, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website reported. As a consequence, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect and replace or repair the appropriate components free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin on or before July 6.
Vehicle owners can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261.
