Japan automaker giant Nissan has issued a worldwide safety recall of around 768,000 of its newer units due to a defective hood latch and a possible short circuiting problem that may cause fire, according to a report by TechTimes on Thursday, January 29.
552,135 Rogue SUVs are being recalled by Nissan worldwide due to the possibility that a mixture of saltwater and snow carried into the car from the driver’s shoes may permeate the carpet and cause a shortage in an electrical system. 468,815 of the affected units are in the USA. No fires have been currently reported to Nissan in relation to this issue.
Meanwhile 215,789 2013-2014 Pathfinder, 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid, 2013 Infiniti JX35, and 2014 Infiniti QX60 and the QX60 Hybrid are being recalled worldwide due to a hood latch assembly that may fail to lock, causing the hood to open if the driver mistakenly releases the primary hood handle while the car is moving. 170,665 of the affected vehicles are registered in the U.S.
