Nissan recalling nearly 152,000 SUVs to fix brakes

DETROIT — Nissan Motor Co. is recalling nearly 152,000 Nissan and Infiniti SUVs to fix faulty brake control software that could increase the risk of a crash.

The recall covers some Nissan Pathfinders from the 2013 and 2014 model years, as well as the 2013 Infiniti JX35 and its successor model, the 2014 QX60.

Nissan says that during light braking on rough roads, the antilock brake software could cause longer-than-expected stopping distances.

Nissan will notify owners within 60 days, and dealers will reprogram the antilock brakes free of charge.

Owners can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261.
