Nissan Recalling 2011 Rogue Crossovers to Fix Power Steering Assist

By Jacob Brown | December 05, 2011
Nissan is recalling 2011 Nissan Rogue models to fix potentially defective circuit boards in the electric power steering system that, if broken, could make the vehicle harder to control. The recall affects 7365 Nissan Rogues manufactured between Aug. 17, 2010 and Oct. 30, 2010. It was determined that the circuit board in the power assist unit may have been installed incorrectly, leading to additional stress on it. This could lead to the board cracking, potentially deactivating the Rogue’s power steering, making it harder to steer. Nissan will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles this month. Nissan dealerships will replace any circuitry or the electric power assist system, if deemed necessary, free of charge. If you have any concerns, you can contact Nissan at 800) 647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at (888) 327-4236 with reference to campaign number 11V565000.
