Nissan and Infiniti Lemon Law Alert! Nissan Issues a Recall for Cars with Defective Brake Software

Nissan issues yet another recall in the past month.  This time the Japanese multinational auto maker issues a recall for defects with the software of the braking systems with the Nissan Pathfinder, Infiniti JX35 and Infiniti QX60.  The recall was issued to address a defect with the antilock braking system software that can result in an accident.

Specifically, the recall affects the model years 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinder, 2013 Infiniti JX35 and the 2014 Infiniti QX60.  The problem lies with the pressure output software of the antilock brake system (ABS).  Apparently, the software is flawed requiring an increase in stopping distance, which can result in taking longer to stop the car and thereby increase the risk of a collision.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that approximately 190,000 Nissan and Infiniti cars are subject to the recall.  The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder and 2013 Infiniti JX are also being investigated tor potential defects with the transmission systems.
