Nissan is in the process of recalling several models of cars and SUVs because of a defect, which allows brake fluid to leak and increase the risk of starting a fire, that has affected over 120,000 vehicles.
Some Murano SUVs from years 2015 to 2017, Maxima cars from years 2016 and 2017, and some Murano hybrids from years 2015 and 2016 are included in the recall.
Nissan has revealed that the defect begins with ineffective antilock brake pump seals, which can leak fluid directly onto a circuit board, causing electrical shorts that lead to a fire. If this happens, the antilock brake warning light has the chance to stay on for 10 seconds after the car starts.
It is advised that owners should park their cars outside and contact their local dealer. A number of vehicles have been reported to start fires.
If you have been the victim of a manufacturing defect, you may be entitled to pursue a product liability claim. Contact the lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., today at (248) 948-9696 to discuss your case with a qualified legal professional.

Ten automaker giants are now facing class action lawsuits over millions of cars equipped with keyless ignition systems that may fail to shut off the car’s engines, even after the drivers leave the car with the electronic key fobs. This poses the risk of injuries and death due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
According to the lawsuit, which was filed by 28 plaintiffs in a federal court in Los Angeles, the companies failed to install an auto-off feature that would shut the engine off if left running for a long period of time. The lawsuit also stated that many drivers misunderstood the role of electronic key fobs, believing that the car will stop as soon as the key fobs were no longer inside the car.
So far, 13 deaths and several injuries have been associated with the issue. Among the car makers involved are Toyota, Fiat, Chrysler, General Motors, Honda, and others.
