Nissan, one of the world’s largest automakers, is recalling more than 700,000 SUVs due to a defect that can cause the engine to shut off while driving.
The recall affects the 2014-2015 Nissan Rogue models and includes 807,000 vehicles in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. According to a statement from Nissan, the issue is caused by a faulty ignition switch, which can cause the engine to cut off without warning.
Nissan has said that the defect has not caused any accidents or injuries, but the company is urging affected drivers to take their vehicles to a dealer for repairs.
The recall comes after a series of reports from owners who said their vehicles suddenly shut off while driving. In response, Nissan launched an investigation and identified the problem.
In addition to the Rogue, Nissan is also recalling more than 200,000 other vehicles, including the Altima, Maxima, and Pathfinder. The company is urging all owners of these vehicles to take them to a dealer for inspection and repair.
Nissan is offering free repairs for all affected vehicles, and the company is also providing loaner vehicles to customers who need them.
