Franklin, TN – August 28, 2022 – Subaru (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is issuing a recall for 5,904 SUVs because their brake boosters may not work properly, increasing the risk of an accident.
The recall includes the following vehicles:
- 2017 Rogue Hybrid
- 2018 Rogue Hybrid
- 2019 Rogue Hybrid
The hydraulic brake booster serves to boost the brakes’ stopping power, helping the vehicle to stop faster in an emergency situation. This is done through the force of a vacuum pump, which sucks all the air out of the brake booster to make it more efficient.
In the affected vehicles, the effectiveness of the motor used by the brake booster may be reduced due to friction from using the brakes repeatedly or high temperatures generated by the engine. This situation can cause the “loss of power brake assist.”
The component involved in this recall is the hydraulic brake booster assembly with part number 47210 4BC8A.
The worn out booster would require more effort from the driver to press the brake pedal. This could lead to the vehicle needing a longer distance to slow down or stop, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
Drivers will notice the red brake system warning indicator lighting up on the dashboard, accompanied by a buzzing sound.
Other Nissan Rogue recalls
There was a Nissan Rogue hybrid recall in November 2021 due to a problem with the engine harness which could cause the vehicles to lose power and stall unexpectedly.
The remedy is currently under development. Affected owners will receive letters with more information on or around September 22, 2022.
All repairs will be free of charge and Nissan will reimburse the owners who already paid to have their vehicles repaired due to this issue.
