Nissan has issued a recall of over 28,000 Juke SUV models sold in the US, between April 2010 to May 2011, because of a weak weld holding a turbocharger boost sensor bracket that may break.
Owners affected by the 2011 Nissan recall will be called and asked to bring the vehicles into dealers to have the problem fixed.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Agency (NHTSA) is reporting that if the weld were to break, and the bracket could fall into an air inlet tube causing the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of an accident.
The recall affects 2011 Nissan Juke SUVs with turbocharger-equipped engines.
Nissan confirmed that it is aware of incidents where cars are stalling in foreign countries, according to documents filed with the NHTSA. The automaker also noted that the Juke is the only vehicle that uses the air inlet tube.
The Nissan recall is expected to begin on January 9.
The automaker will send a notification letter to owners with instructions on how to get their vehicles serviced to fix the problem. If you have misplaced a notification letter or want to verify that your SUV isn’t involved, you can fill out an online form and submit an inquiry to Nissan Consumer Affairs.
