What are the defects?

Vehicles have been manufactured with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) actuator with an oil seal that may leak brake fluid internally.

What are the hazards?

If this occurs, an ABS warning lamp will illuminate to warn the driver. If the vehicle continues to be operated in this condition, the brake fluid leak may create an electrical short in the actuator circuit, which could lead to a fire.

What should consumers do?

Replacement parts will not be available until Mid-2020. Once replacement parts become available, affected consumers will be contacted by Nissan Australia to arrange the replacement of the ABS actuator at no cost to consumers (parts and labour).

Until the recall is commenced, consumers of affected vehicles are advised that if they see the ABS warning light continuously illuminated (10 seconds or longer), they should park their vehicle outside and contact Nissan Roadside Assistance for assistance.

Responsible regulator

Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development is the responsible regulator for this recall.


What an absolute joke. Over 6 months from now to get replacement parts. The original recall dated 25.10.2018 claimed that parts would not be available before January, 2019.

Absolutely disgraceful.
