Nissan calls back more than 56,000 cars due to power steering hoses

Washington: Nissan summon back more than 56,000 cars due to power steering hoses that may leak fluid and potentially lead to fires.

Nissan North America says the recall affects the 2013-2014 Murano vehicles. It says the problem stems from the power steering hose clamp, which may not adequately secure the hose.

That could allow the hose to detach and leak power steering fluid. That could lead to a fire if it leaks onto a hot engine or exhaust pipes, the company said.

Nissan says dealers will install a new power steering high pressure hose kit, free of charge. Car owners can contact Nissan customer service or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline.
