Nissan is recalling about 768,000 vehicles in two separate recalls after learning about a short circuit that might cause fire and a hood that could suddenly open while the vehicle is moving, TechTimes reported on Thursday, January 29.
The car company is recalling 552,135 Rogue SUVs, approximately 468,815 of which are registered in the U.S., after learning that saltwater on the shoes of the driver may seep through the carpet on the driver side floor, causing a short circuit which could possibly lead to a fire. The other recall involves 215,789 vehicles due to a defective cable assembly that prevents the hood from latching in the closed position. Affected vehicles are 2013 to 2014 Pathfinder, 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid, 2013 Infiniti JX35, and 2014 Infiniti QX60 and the QX60 Hybrid.

A blown tire might have been the cause of a single rollover car crash that happened in Kalamazoo County at around 12:45 p.m. Saturday, August 30.
According to Sgt. Jeff Mack from the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety, a driver and a passenger sustained minor injuries after the four-door Mazda 3 they were occupying overturned as a result of an accident occurring near South Westnedge Ave. near West Crosston Parkway. The driver suspects he blew a tire, which led the car to go off the road, hit a tree, and flip.
The driver was rushed to Bronson Methodist Hospital for treatment.
