Nissan is recalling nearly 240,000 vehicles worldwide due to an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) fluid leak that could lead to a fire.

According to Nissan, the leak could possibly create an electrical short and “in rare instances, may lead to a fire.”

The recall applies to the following vehicles:

  • 2015 to 2017 Nissan Murano
  • 2016 and 2017 Nissan Maxima
  • 2017 to 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2017 Infiniti QX60 vehicles

Nissan is also advising drivers to park their vehicles outdoors and away from other structures until it has been inspected and repaired by a Nissan dealership.

Drivers are instructed to immediately stop driving their vehicles if the ABS lamp warning illuminates continually for more than 10 seconds after the engine starts.

Nissan owners can check if their vehicle is affected on the company’s website or contact Nissan Consumer Affairs at 1-800-NISSAN1 (1-800-647-7261).

Dealerships are now offering repairs for the affected parts.
