Nissan Recalls 793,000 Units of the Rogue in North America

Nissan recalls close to 800,000 units of the Rogue in North America for a risk of fire

  • Corrosion in an electrical connector could cause a fire

  • The affected model is the 2014-2016 Rogue

  • A solution to the problem is currently being developed

Nissan is launching a large recall campaign that applies to 793,000 units of the Rogue from the 2014, 2015 and 2016 model years in the United States and in Canada.

The affected vehicles, of which about 104 000 are north of the border, could catch fire due to corrosion in an electrical connector.

If water and salt pool in the drivers footwell, a common occurrence in winter, the insulation tape for the dash side harness may act as a wick and bring the highly corrosive mixture inside a connector.

Symptoms of a rusted connector include malfunctioning power windows or power seats, the illumination of the AWD warning light, a discharge of the battery or heat damage to the connector in question.

This last symptom created 7 reports of fire or “thermal incidents”, according to the government.

This recall was prompted by the Canadian safety regulators, who opened an investigation into this problem bask in July of 2020.

Nissan said it is currently working on a solution, which should be available in the spring. In the mean time, the automaker recommends owners of the Rogue who notice any of the aforementioned symptoms, a burning smell or smoke to park their vehicle outdoors and call the roadside assistance to have it towed to their dealership.

Owners of the affected vehicles will begin to be notified by mail in March and a subsequent communication from Nissan will be issued once the solution has been found. Owners will then be able to have their vehicle repaired free of charge by one of the brand’s dealerships.
