Nissan is recalling about 1,800 2011 370Z vehicles and 2011-12 Infiniti G37 coupes because a faulty power window could cause a pinch injury before the window automatically reverses, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
On the affected vehicles, the power window switch controller is out of specification due to a programming error. In the case of an obstruction, like a finger or body part, the auto reverse — also called pinch protection — will still function, but there’s a chance of a pinch injury before the window reverses.
The affected vehicles were built between July 2 and Aug. 29. Dealers will replace the power window switches for free. The recall is expected to start around Nov. 28. For more info, Nissan owners can call 800-647-7261, and Infiniti owners can call 800-662-6200. Either can call NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
