2013 Infiniti JX35Nissan will be recalling over 151,000 vehicles due to issues with the anti-lock braking systems. On rough roads, light braking in the Nissan Pathfinder, Infiniti JX35 and QX60 could trigger a problem in the brake pressure output software that might lead to longer stopping distances than expected relative to the brake inputs. Needless to say, unpredictable stopping distances on rough roads is not a desirable trait in a three-row, family friendly CUV.

The recall covers all 2013 and 2014 Nissan Pathfinders built between April 18, 2012 and September 20, 2013, some 100,682 vehicles. Another 52,629 2013 to 2014 Infiniti JX35/QX60s built between September 15, 2011 and September 20, 2013 are also part of the notice.

Nissan will request that owners of affected vehicles report to dealers for a free software update to address the problem. Scroll down for the official notification from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The increased stopping distance may increase the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the ABS, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

      Does the Autoblog long term Pathfinder fall under this recall, if it does have you been experiencing any of the symptoms? Is it your responsibility to take the vehicle to the dealer or the fleet vendor? Just curious because on the recent podcast it was mentioned AB still has the long term Pathfinder.
