  • Recall affects 2011 Rogue SUVs built between August 17 and October 30, 2010
  • An incorrectly installed circuit board could cause the power steering to malfunction
  • Nissan will contact owners of affected vehicles soon and replace the electronic power steering assist control unit if necessary.


Nissan is recalling 7,365 units of its compact Nissan Rogue SUV due to a potential power steering malfunction. According to the automaker, an incorrectly installed circuit board is to blame for the problem, which only affects 2011 Rogue models made from August 17, 2010 to October 30, 2010.

Nissan and the government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced the recall in a recent statement, blaming the problem on a circuit board in the Rogue's electronic power steering assist control unit. According to the NHTSA, the circuit board's solder may bear additional stress due to incorrect installation, which could lead to a failure. If the circuit board fails, the Rogue's power steering may also malfunction. The NHTSA says that could increase the amount of effort required to steer, potentially leading to a crash.

According to the NHTSA, Nissan will begin contacting the owners of Rogue SUVs affected by the recall sometime this month. Dealerships will inspect affected vehicles and, if necessary, replace the SUV's electronic power steering control unit free of charge. Nissan says concerned Rogue owners can contact the manufacturer at 1-800-647-7261, or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.

Thanks in part to a series of recent revisions, the Rogue has posted impressive sales figures so far in 2011. Through the end of November, Nissan sold more than 100,000 Rogues this year - an increase of more than 25 percent compared to the same period in 2010. A new SV trim level and updated styling highlight revisions to the 2011 Rogue, which features a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a standard continuously-variable automatic transmission. Designed to conserve fuel, the CVT earns the Rogue EPA ratings of 22 miles per gallon in city driving and up to 28 mpg on the highway.

What it means to you:

The NHTSA continues to serve as a useful watchdog for safety-related automotive complaints.
