Nissan North America is recalling 5,904 model year 2017-2019 Rogue Hybrids.
The hydraulic brake booster assembly may overheat internally, resulting in a loss of power brake assist.
A loss of power brake assist can extend the distance required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
In a campaign bulletin, the automaker notes that frequent braking in a short period of time, combined with high engine room temperatures the hydraulic brake booster motor can fail.
As a result, the brake warning light (with buzzer) will illuminate and the brake pedal will be hard to depress.
What to do
A remedy is under development, with owner notification letters scheduled to be sent in September 2022.
Owners may contact Nissan's customer service at (800) 867-7669. Nissan's number for this recall is R22A6.
