Recall Alert: 2011 Nissan Rogue

Nissan is recalling 7,365 Rogue compact crossovers from the 2011 model year because the power-steering assist feature may stop functioning, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, the circuit board may not have been installed in the correct position on the electric power-steering assist control unit. This could put stress on the solder of the terminal to the circuit board and cause the solder to crack and separate from the circuit board. If the circuit board fails, the power-steering assist feature will stop working, increasing the force needed to steer the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.

The vehicles in the recall were built between Aug. 17, 2010, and Oct. 30, 2010. You can see when your car was built by checking a label affixed to the driver-side doorjamb.

The recall is expected to begin this month. Dealers will replace the EPS control unit if necessary at no charge. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
