Recall Alert: 143,223 Nissan and Infiniti Vehicles

Murano Nissan has issued a recall for 143,223 vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The vehicles include the 2009 Nissan Cube and Murano, the 2008 Nissan Rogue, the 2008-2010 Infiniti M35, and 2008-2010 Infiniti M45.

The recall is focused on certain vehicles from the 2008-2010 model years originally sold or currently registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington D.C., West Virginia and Wisconsin.

These vehicles have a nut securing the sensor-transmitter of the tire pressure monitoring system that may corrode and possibly crack when exposed to road salt. The nut may fall out of the sensor-transmitter, which will cause the monitoring light to illuminate.

If the driver ignores the light and continues to drive the car in this condition, the tire could lose air pressure, resulting in a flat that could potentially cause an accident.

Nissan dealers will replace the TPMS nut with a “new, more robust nut” free of charge. Owners may contact Nissan at 800-647-7261, Infiniti at 800-662-6200 or the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.

How many Japanese manufacturer related recalls does this make lately? Say what you want about Chrysler,when was the last time they had a recall?
(This sounds like 1982/83 when Chrysler had the lowest NHTSA recalls of any of the big 3 car makers).

This has to be what is going on whith my rogue. My tires keep loosing air, they changed one of these transmitters on my rogue about 1 month ago and it seemed fine for awhile but then all of a sudden the light is back on and the air is out of all my tires. I am tired of this vehicle, I am ready to go back to Toyota
