Regulators open probe of Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX4 SUVs
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it has opened an investigation into steering problems in about 400,000 1996-2004 Nissan Pathfinders and 1997-2003 Infiniti QX4 SUVs. Both brands are owned by Nissan.
Safety regulators said they have 35 reports of undue corrosion on the driver's side front strut tower that can cause a loss of steering control.
