On January 27, 2015, Nissan recalled 768,000 SUVs in one of the company’s largest recalls ever.
This major recall covered two separate problems, both of which can lead to serious injury, or even death, if not fixed.
What are the Problems Associated with the Nissan Recalls?
The company recalled 552,135 Nissan Rogues, manufactured from model years 2008 through 2014, due to the risk of sudden fire.
According to the NHTSA, the wiring harness connector on recalled Nissan Rogues is prone to shorting out when exposed to water, snow or salt seeping through the carpet above.
Unfortunately, the wiring harness connector just happens to be located directly beneath the driver’s side footboard–where exposure to moisture from wet or snow-covered shoes is virtually unavoidable.
These electrical shorts have led to fires.
