Nissan announced the recall of vehicles with the potential for leaking brake fluid to increase the risk of fire. Owners were "advised to park their vehicle outdoors away from other vehicles or structures and not to drive the vehicle."
Most of the cars which have been recalled are located in the U.S. and Canada and the recalled vehicles number to 134,000. As per National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) documents, the recall includes models of Nissan Maxima, Murano, and the Murano hybrid.
The reason for the recall is that the ABS actuator pumps might allow brake fluid to leak onto a circuit board and might cause an electrical short which increases the potential risk of fire. There were no injuries connected to the defect reported; however, there have been reports of incidents causing "thermal damage" to vehicles.
The NHTSA has warned owners to park their vehicles far away and wait for a tow truck when the ABS warning light will stay on for more than 10 seconds after the engine is switched on. Nissan will inspect the cars and if required, will repair the ABS actuator free of cost.
