Nissan Recalls Nearly Half a Million Vehicles That Might Explode

Nissan is recalling over 450,000 vehicles worldwide because a brake fluid leak could cause them to catch fire.


Oopsy doopsy

The recall, detailed in documents posted Friday by the U.S. government, covers the Nissan Murano SUV from 2015 through 2018, and Maxima sedans from 2016 through 2018. Also included are Infiniti QX60 and Nissan Pathfinder SUVs from 2017 through 2019. Most are in the U.S. and Canada.


Oh, only those ones then. That’s good.

It’s Nissan’s third recall for the same problem, and the company keeps expanding the number of affected models. About 120,000 U.S. vehicles were recalled in 2016, and Nissan issued a recall for 215,000 in 2018


Okay, well I’m sure they got all of the flammable cars this time. All good now!

Dealers now will replace the pumps on all of the vehicles. Notices telling owners of the safety risk will be sent Dec. 2. Parts are available for vehicles with illuminated antilock brake lights.

Owners will get a second notice next summer when additional parts are available.


“Hey, this pump might break and start a fire. We’ll fix it for you –– but only if your pump is already broken. Otherwise we’ll take care of it next year”

“But I’m already nearly 2 years into my lease!”

“And your car hasn’t caught on fire yet? Wow, that might be a new record! Hey Ken, get over here you gotta see this!”

“Nissan Group is committed to the safety, security and satisfaction of our customers and their passengers,” the statement said.


Well, that’s a good thing they’re committed to safety. Half a million cars are at risk of spontaneously bursting into flame. Imagine how bad things would be if Nissan didn’t care about keeping their customers safe!
