Over 300,000 Nissan SUVs have been recalled due to a faulty hood that could allow it to burst open while the driver is driving, obscuring their view.
According to NBC News, the recall affects 322,671 Pathfinder SUVs in the U.S. with model years between 2013 and 2016.
There are additional 37,700 affected automobiles in Canada, although none of them were sold in Japan, according to Reuters.
According to NBC News, the problem with the defective hoods is caused by dust accumulation and filth contamination, which could cause the hoods to open suddenly.
This could impede the drivers' view of the affected vehicles, increasing the likelihood of a collision.
Only 1% of the recalled Pathfinder SUVs, according to Nissan, have defects. According to Nissan, solutions to the hood issue are now being developed.
