More than 150,000 Nissan vehicles are being recalled due to problems involving the brake system.

The automaker says that during light breaking on rough roads, the antilock brake software may not stop right away. This wider stopping distance may increase the risk of a crash.

The recall involves certain model year 2013-2014 Pathfinder vehicles manufactured April 18, 2012 through Sept. 20, 2013; model year 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles manufactured Sept. 5, 2011 through Jan. 16, 2013; and model year 2014 Infiniti QX60 vehicles manufactured Jan. 17, 2013 through Sept. 20, 2013.

Nissan said it will notify owners of the issue, though it didn't provide a notification schedule. Dealers will reprogram the antilock brakes for free.

For more information, owners can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov.
