Another recall issued for Nissan Pathfinder

Nissan and its Infiniti luxury division are voluntarily recalling nearly 152,000 crossovers to fix an issue with the anti-lock braking system.

The recall affects the 2013 and '14 Nissan Pathfinder, the '13 Infiniti JX35, and the '14 Infiniti QX60. The vehicles' ABS software system has a glitch that could cause “increased stopping distances” during light braking on rough or uneven roads, Nissan said in a statement.

In September, NHTSA opened a preliminary investigation into reports of transmission failure on the Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX, and two earlier recalls in 2013 addressed problems with the vehicles' air-bag sensors and with a mechanical component of the braking system.

“Nissan is committed to a high level of customer safety, service and satisfaction and (is) working with dealers to provide an outstanding ownership experience to Pathfinder owners,” Nissan said.
