Vehicles Affected: Approximately 120,000 model-year 2016-17 Nissan Maxima sedans manufactured between Feb. 10, 2015, and Aug. 19, 2016, and equipped with adaptive cruise control; model-year 2015-17 Murano SUVs manufactured between Aug. 22, 2014, and Aug. 19, 2016, also equipped with adaptive cruise control; and model-year 2015-16 Murano Hybrid SUVs manufactured between Aug. 22, 2014, and July 19, 2016

The Problem: The antilock braking system’s actuator pumps may allow brake fluid to leak onto an internal electrical circuit board, resulting in an electrical short and increasing the risk of a fire. When brake fluid has leaked onto the circuit board, the ABS warning lamp may remain illuminated for more than 10 seconds after engine startup. If this occurs, owners are advised to park the vehicle outdoors, away from other vehicles or structures, and to not drive the vehicle.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the ABS actuator, replacing it as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Nissan did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
