Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. announced it will be recalling approximately 47,000 2014 Rogue vehicles manufactured between July 25th 2013 and June 7th, 2014 due to an issue in the vehicles’ fuel pump. According to Nissan, the fuel pump defect can prevent the vehicles from starting and possibly cause the vehicles’ engines to fail while the cars are in motion, leading to collisions. The recalled vehicles have a nickel plating that may create loose particles over time, causing the pumps to malfunction. Nissan is in the process of notifying affected vehicle owners and has stated that it will replace the pumps for free.
This recall comes on the heels of a massive recall of the company’s nearly 47,000 electric Leaf vehicles sold in the U.S. and Canada due to an issue with the vehicles’ brakes. According to reports, the brakes have a risk of malfunction when exposed to extreme cold, requiring drivers to exert more pressure to operate them. Nissan plans to reprogram the electronic brake booster in the affected vehicles to fix the issue.
