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.
