Nissan is issuing a recall for nearly 200,000 sport-utility vehicles sold in the U.S. under both its Nissan and Infiniti brands.

The vehicles affected include 195,991 copies of the 1996-2004 Nissan Pathfinder and the 1997-2003 Infiniti QX4. Only vehicles sold or currently registered in northern-tier states are included in the recall. Those states include: Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin--as well as the District of Columbia.

In both, the vehicles could be exposed to heavy road salt, which could in turn find its way into the struts. The intrusion can lead to rusting inside the strut tower housing--which may cause cracking and failure, and a loss of steering control.

Nissan will repair the affected vehicles free of charge. Owners will be notified by mail beginning in mid-May, but they can also contact the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 or at its website.

  1. Japanese trucks with a severe rust problem? Wow, that sounds familiar.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Our 2000 QX has body rust, under carriage rust and we live on the Southern California coast. I do not agree with just the Northern US that uses road salt.
