Nissan Motor Co. is recalling 188,302 mid-sized sports utility vehicles around the world to fix a software issue in the antilock braking system that may result to an increase in stopping distance, according to the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall covers: 100,682 units of the 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinders and 52,629 units of the 2013 Infiniti JX35 and 2014 QX60 models sold in the US, Puerto Rico and Guam.

The recall also covers Nissan and Infiniti SUVs sold in Canada, China, Korea, Mexico, Russia and Taiwan. According to Nissan, the ABS is operating as designed, but when it is activated on urban terrain, the "brake pressure output software setting" may lead to stopping distances that are slightly longer than customer's expectation for the provided pedal force.

NHTSA said the change in stopping distance may result to an increased risk of a crash. No accidents or injuries have been reported. Nissan will notify owners of affected SUVs within 60 days to make adjustments to the antilock braking system pressure at no cost.
