Nissan has announced a recall for the 2011 and 2012 Infiniti G37 coupe and the 2011 Nissan 370Z. The problem? Faulty power windows.
According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the power window switch controllers on some G37s and 370Zs may not meet the proper standards. The vehicles' power windows will operate, but the auto-reverse feature might not be as quick as it should be. Translation: if a finger or other body part becomes trapped in a window on one of the recalled cars, someone could get a nasty pinch before the window reverses.
The problem affects vehicles manufactured between July 2, 2011 and August 29, 2011. Some 1,788 cars are subject to recall.
If you believe you own one of the recalled vehicles, you should receive a notice from Nissan on or shortly after November 28. At that time, you'll be able to take your vehicle to a dealership and have the vehicle's power window switches replaced free of charge.
If you have questions in the meantime, please contact your local Nissan or Infiniti dealer, or ring their corporate offices at 800-647-7261 (Nissan) or 800-662-6200 (Infiniti). You can also contact the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and reference recall #11V538000.
