Murano Hybrid Fire Risk

Nissan is recalling 120,000 vehicles, including the Murano Hybrid, because brake fluid can leak onto circuit boards, short them out, and start a fire. I know what you’re thinking — wait, there’s a Murano Hybrid?

The vehicles have anti-lock brake actuator pumps that can leak brake fluid onto internal circuit boards, causing electrical shorts in the systems. The problem is caused by anti-lock brake actuators that were manufactured out of specification.

Nissan says if you notice the ABS warning light on for more than 10 seconds when you first start the vehicle, don’t drive. Walk away. Walk far away.
