DETROIT (AP) — Nissan is recalling more than 19,000 Nissan and Infiniti SUVs because a brake part can fail and make it harder for the driver to stop the car.
The recall affects Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX SUVs from the 2013 model year.
The automaker says an iron brake caliper part wasn’t made properly and can crack or fail. If that happens, the brake calipers can move and hit the wheel. That can reduce braking power and increase the risk of a crash. Nissan said Friday it has no reports of crashes or injuries.
The SUVs were made from Dec. 3, 2012, through Jan. 29, 2013.
Nissan will notify owners starting in May. Dealers will inspect the SUVs and replace the parts free of charge if needed.
