I have some choice words for Nissan’s anti-lock brake actuator pump.
And yes, I realize that is an odd thing to say, but hear me out. The pump leaks brake fluid onto internal circuit boards which starts fires. And it’s been a problem more than once.
Nissan is even worried enough to ask owners of the 2015-2017 Murano, 2016-2017 Maxima, 2017-2018 Pathfinder and the 2017 Infiniti QX60 vehicles to park their cars outside and away from things you wouldn’t like to see turned to ash.
Maybe I should direct my choice words at Nissan instead.keep reading
Have you ignored a dashboard warning light? I wouldn't blame you.
I was once charged $100 to turn off a light because my stupid gas cap was loose. But Nissan is pleading – if you see a warning light in certain vehicles you need to park your car and walk away because of fire risks.
"Nissan is recalling more than 120,000 cars and SUVs to repair brake fluid leaks that may cause circuit boards to catch on fire. Worldwide, the automaker says about 134,000 are recalled, including almost 11,000 in Canada."
The recalled vehicles include:
- 2016-2017 Maxima (w/ intelligent cruise control)
- 2015-2017 Murano (w/ intelligent cruise control)
- 2015-2016 Nissan Murano Hybrids
Anyone else getting the feeling there's a major issue with Nissan's Occupant Classification System (OCS)?
For roughly the 103rd time – ok, 4th – Nissan is recalling their defective OCS. And this one is a doozy at 3.8 million vehicles.
"Nissan says the occupant classification systems in the front passenger seats can turn off because the systems classify an adult as a child or classify a seat as empty even if an adult is in the seat."
That will disable the airbags for someone who really needs it.
"Nissan says in the case of a child classification, the system is designed to illuminate the airbag light indicating the airbag is turned off. However, if the initial classification is “empty seat,” the light will not illuminate and there is no indication that the airbag is suppressed."
Does any part of this thing work?
Nissan has been accused of covering up the OCS issue and issuing repairs that didn't work in a lawsuit.keep reading
