Nissan Recalls 639,000 Pathfinders, Rogues and Infiniti QX60 Vehicles
Nissan Pathfinder, Rogue and Infiniti vehicles recalled for second time in two weeks.

— Nissan is recalling over 639,000 vehicles, some the same models that were recalled less than two weeks ago.

Nissan Rogue / Nissan Rogue Select

The largest recall involves almost 469,000 Rogues to fix problems that could cause a fire. The affected vehicles are the 2008-2013 Nissan Rogue and the 2014 Nissan Rogue Select.

Nissan says water can seep through the driver-side floor carpet and enter a harness connector. That can cause an electrical short which can cause wires to melt and catch fire.

Nissan says the recalled 2008-2013 Nissan Rogues were manufactured March 7, 2007, to November 26, 2013, and the 2014 Nissan Rogue Selects were built September 23, 2013, to July 2, 2014.

Nissan doesn't know when the Rogue recall will begin. The automaker said its dealers will replace the harness connector if it's damaged and then add a waterproof seal to protect the connector from water damage.

Nissan Pathfinder / Infiniti JX35 / Infiniti QX60

Nissan says over 170,660 vehicles are called back to fix problems with the hood release cable assembly.

Nissan says the recalled vehicles include the 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinder and Pathfinder hybrid, 2013 Infiniti JX35, 2014 Infiniti QX60 and the QX60 hybrid.

Nissan says a manufacturing error caused the hood release cable to be installed incorrectly and can prevent the latch from working. It can be terribly difficult to see the road if the hood flies open while you're cruising down the highway.

Nissan dealers will change the angle of the hood release mechanism to make the latch release cable longer. The automaker hasn't said when the recall will begin.

With questions about any of these recalls, contact Nissan at 800-647-7261.

Earlier this month, Nissan recalled the Pathfinder, Rogue and Infiniti QX60 because of problems with the brakes and steering. Days before that recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation into possible airbag problems in the Nissan Rogue.
