Nissan is recalling almost 768,000 SUVs worldwide to fix faulty hood latches and electrical shorts that could cause fires. The first recall covers more than 552,000 Nissan Rogue vehicles, model year 2008-2013 and manufactured between March 7, 2007, and November 26, 2013, and 2014 Nissan Rogue Select vehicles manufactured from September 23, 2013, to July 2, 2014. The affected vehicles may experience an electrical short in the harness connector due to a mixture of snow/water and salt seeping through the carpet on the driver side floor near the harness connector. An electrical short can cause a vehicle fire. Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the kick panel wiring harness connector and will, if necessary, install a new harness connector and waterproof seal, free of charge.
A second recall is also issued for nearly 216,000 Nissan Pathfinders from 2013 and 2014, and Infiniti JX35s from 2013 and QX60s from 2014. In these vehicles, the secondary hood latch could stay open when the hood is closed. Nissan says this problem has caused some hoods to be damaged but no crashes or injuries were reported.
