WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 893 2014-'15 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX60 SUVs because loose bolts could affect brake performance or steering control, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The 2014-'15 Nissan Rogue SUV is also included in the recall.
"During the assembly process, the front wheel hub assembly fasteners may not have been properly torqued," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "The under-torqued fasteners may result in a brake caliper separating from the wheel assembly, causing a reduction in braking performance or reduced steering control.
"These conditions increase the risk of a crash."
There are no injuries, crashes or fatalities linked to the recall, said Nissan spokesman Steve Yaeger in response to a query from Edmunds.
The affected Pathfinder and QX60 vehicles were built from August 14, 2014 to November 5, 2014. The affected Rogue vehicles were built from August 12, 2014 to November 15, 2014.
Nissan and Infiniti dealers will inspect the vehicles and tighten any loose bolts to the proper specification. The recall is expected to begin on February 25. Owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261 or Infiniti customer service at 1-800-662-6200.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice before scheduling a service appointment. But if you have a concern in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer.
