Nissan Recalls More Than 793,000 Rogue SUVs in North America

Nissan’s recall for the popular compact Rogue SUV for potential fire risks involving faulty wiring.

Vehicles affected?

This recall applies to over 793,000 Nissan Rogue from the 2014, 2015, and 2016 model years. Of the total amount, 104,464 units were sold in Canada. 

What’s the problem?

The 2014-2016 Nissan Rogue may experience corrosion from salt and water setting into an electrical connector under the dashboard. Should the corrosion form, some of the first symptoms that will be noticed by the occupants is a faulty or inoperative driver’s side power window or power seat. It may be accompanied by an all-wheel-drive (AWD) warning light notification, eventual battery discharge problems, and potential thermal damage to the connector.

The thermal damage could lead to a fire and possible injury. So far, Nissan is aware of only three unconfirmed incidents in the US. 

What’s the fix?

At the moment, Nissan is studying the issue and working on developing a fix. According to the Japanese automaker, a fix is expected this coming spring. 

What do you do?

For now, there’s nothing to be done other than be mindful of symptoms. Nissan dealers have already been notified of the recall. Owners will have to wait until March 2nd for the notification and instructions on what actions need to be taken.
