Nissan Recalling Nearly 200,000 Vehicles

DETROIT (WWJ) -Nissan is recalling nearly 200,000 Pathfinder and Infiniti QX4 sport utility vehicles sold in the U.S. because of a problem that could cause the steering column to break and the driver to lose control.

 The recall comes just months after Japan’s No. 2 automaker launched two other major recalls, including one that involved more than 2 million vehicles.

In the latest recall, Nissan says certain model year 1996-2004 Pathfinders and 1997-2003 Infiniti QX4s potentially have the steering problem, which can result from snow and salt entering a hole in the car’s strut housing and causing water to collect inside. Over time, the strut housing may corrode, possibly causing the steering column to break.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it’s received 35 problem reports.
