Nissan recalling 120K vehicles that may catch on fire

Japanese automaker Nissan issued a recall to over 120,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to a problem that could result in the vehicles catching fire, a September 9 article of the Los Angeles Times reported.

Documents submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed that brake fluid may seep from the antilock brake pumps to the circuit board, causing the vehicles to catch fire. The recall affects various recent and older models of SUV and sedan vehicles. The automaker and the NHTSA have received complaints of vehicles catching fire. Nissan advised owners to refrain from using their vehicles while waiting for the appropriate repairs. Vehicles that are not yet repaired should be parked in an area away from other structures that could be damaged by fire. Nissan said they will replace faulty seals on the affected vehicles at no cost.
