Nissan has ordered a recall of certain 2011 Rogue SUV models in the US in order to fix a potential flaw, where the electric boards for the vehicle’s power steering assist control unit might not be properly installed.

The official NHTSA notice says that the flaw could cause additional stress on the solder of the terminal to the circuit board and may lead to the solder becoming cracked. This in turn would lead from it becoming completely broke off from the board in some cases.

If this happens, you’d have a loss of power steering, which as you’ll already know increases the force needed to turn the wheel significantly. Loss of power steering also carries a high risk for accidents with it.

The safety recall starts this month and will be conducted free of charge. To find out if your Rogue is affected, contact Nissan at 1 (800) 647-7261 or contact NHTSA at 1 (888) 327-4236 for more information.
