Nissan issues US Pathfinder recall over brake light default

Nissan has issued a US recall of its Pathfinder mid-sized SUV. On May 31, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration made the announcement.

The recall is due to a defect in the brake lamp. According to the NHTSA, there is a problem with the Pathfinder’s brake light switch. In some cases, even when the driver releases the brake pedal, the light stays on.

The recall applies to 79,853 2013-2014 Pathfinders that were built from the end of June 2012 to the middle of June 2013.

Nissan North America is contacting the owners of the affected vehicles. Brake lights are being checked and replaced at dealerships.
