Nissan North America is recalling 468,815 model year 2008-2013 Nissan Rogue vehicles manufactured March 7, 2007, to November 26, 2013, and 2014 Nissan Rogue Select vehicles manufactured September 23, 2013, to July 2, 2014.
The recalled vehicles may experience an electrical short in the harness connector due to a mixture of snow/water and salt seeping through the carpet on the driver side floor near the harness connector. An electrical short can cause a vehicle fire.
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the kick panel wiring harness connector and will -- if necessary -- install a new harness connector and waterproof seal free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
