Nissan Recalls 768,000 Crossovers and SUVs for Separate Problems

Nissan Motor Co is recalling about 768,000 vehicles, including the Rogue crossover and Pathfinder SUV, for separate problems.

Some 552,135 Rogues from model years 2008 and 2013 will be recalled because moisture could seep out through the driver side floor and cause an electrical short to wiring that could lead to a fire, according to Nissan and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 468,815 of these vehicles are registered in the Unites States.

No crashes or injuries have been reported due to the wiring issues.

Also, 215,789 Pathfinder SUVs form 2013 and 2014 and 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles will be recalled for problems related to a secondary hood latch. 170,665 of the vehicles are registered in the U.S.

The problem was noticed to be primarily in rental vehicles, according to a Nissan spokesman. The drivers unintentionally dislodged the secondary hood latch, which is designed to catch the hood from flying up if the primary hood latch is disengaged. The damage was done to the vehicles when the hood flew open, in most occasions. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
