Nissan had recently recalled 134,000 Nissan’s due to a faulty seal in the brake system which could cause an electrical fire. The cars involved are, 2015 to 2017 Murano SUV’s and 2016-2017 Maxima’s with intelligent cruise control. Additionally, 2015 and 2016 Murano hybrids were recalled as well. According to Patch, “A bad seal in the brake line could cause fluid to leak onto a circuit board, sparking an electrical fire. If there is a leak, the cars anti-lock brake warning light will stay illuminated for more than 10 seconds after the car is started.” Nissan suggests owners who get an indication should park the car immediately away from any flammable structure and call Nissan Road Side assistance.
