Thousands of Nissan SUVs recalled because of brake problems

Published On: Apr 19 2013 05:14:22 PM CDT

More than 19,000 SUVs are being recalled by Nissan to correct a brake problem.  The recall affects 2013 models of the Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX SUVs.

The company says a brake part was not made properly and can crack and hit the vehicle's wheels.  That problem can reduce braking power and increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan says it will begin notifying owners next month and the parts will be replaced by dealers for free.
