Nissan North America has issued a recall of more than 196,000 sport utility vehicles in the United States.
According to officials with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the recall extends to Nissan Pathfinder SUVs from model years 1997 to 2003, and Infiniti QX4 SUVs sold from 1996 to 2004. The agency said the recall was issued over concerns that corrosion problems could damage steering and suspension systems.
“In areas of the country in which heavy concentrations of road salt are used, a mixture of snow/water and salt … may result in corrosion of the strut tower housing in some subject vehicles,” the NHTSA website says. “This may lead to grinding noises, increased steering effort, and possibly the steering column to break, resulting in the loss of steering control, which could result in a crash.”
