Nissan Rogue recalled for possible power steering failure

Nissan Motor Co. has announced a recall of more than 7,000 of its 2011 Rogue crossover vehicles in the United States for possible problems with the power steering, which may cause it to fail.

According to the manufacturer, the circuit boards controlling the power steering may not have been installed correctly, so the solder between the terminal and the circuit boards could crack. This could cause the circuit board to fail, and the power assist feature to stop functioning. If this occurs, drivers would need to use additional force to steer the vehicle, which could result in a loss of control and crash.

Nissan says there have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to the defect. Vehicle owners should return them to the dealership for inspection and repair.
