Quite often these days, more and more prestigious car manufacturers have to deal with painful recalls and other necessary adjustments to their already sold cars.
Today we are going to talk about a new investigation launched by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about certain models of Infinity QX4 made between 1997 and 2003 and Nissan Pathfinder produced between 1996 and 2004. It seems that these two models share the same platform and accordingly, the same bugs.
It seems that NHTSA has received more than 30 reports of corrosion instances on the driver's side front strut tower. Even if this doesn't sound like much, if you think that on the McPherson steering/suspension system, all the base components of the drive train are fixed exactly on that strut tower you can understand how serious the problem is. Moreover, in five of the NHTSA reports it is stated that the steering column broke loose resulting in a complete loss of steering.
While the NHTSA investigation was opened only a few days ago, we're expecting a massive recall of the two models from the Japanese car makers as both Nissan and Infiniti are well known for their interest in driving safety issues.
