Nissan Recalls 768,000 Crossovers and SUVs for Separate Problems

Nissan Motor Co is recalling about 768,000 vehicles, including the Rogue crossover and Pathfinder SUV, for separate problems.

Some 552,135 Rogues from model years 2008 and 2013 will be recalled because moisture could seep out through the driver side floor and cause an electrical short to wiring that could lead to a fire, according to Nissan and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 468,815 of these vehicles are registered in the Unites States.

No crashes or injuries have been reported due to the wiring issues.

Also, 215,789 Pathfinder SUVs form 2013 and 2014 and 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles will be recalled for problems related to a secondary hood latch. 170,665 of the vehicles are registered in the U.S.

The problem was noticed to be primarily in rental vehicles, according to a Nissan spokesman. The drivers unintentionally dislodged the secondary hood latch, which is designed to catch the hood from flying up if the primary hood latch is disengaged. The damage was done to the vehicles when the hood flew open, in most occasions. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries.
