Nissan recalls Rogue, Pathfinder, and Infiniti QX60 for loose lug nuts

Nissan issued a brief recall regarding 334 vehicles built within the last several months over loose lug nuts that can obviously pose as a safety threat.

Only 334 examples total were recalled, consisting of 2014 Nissan Rogue Pathfinder, and 2014 Infiniti QX60 crossovers built between March 7 and March 10 of this year.

As usual, owners of affected vehicles will be notified and are recommended to report to the dealer for a retorquing of the lug nuts. But in this rare case, owners are more than capable of fixing the issue on their own.
