Nissan issues two recalls for 640,000 US vehicles.

The New York (NY) Times (1/29, Jensen, Subscription Publication, 9.97M) reports that Nissan has issued two recalls for almost 640,000 vehicles in the US. The Times says that the first recall is for 469,000 2008-2013 Rogues because “a mixture of snow and water and salt” could “seep into the carpet,” which could then “reach an electrical connection, causing a short and potentially ‘a thermal incident.’” The Times reports that the automaker also recalled 171,000 SUVs, including the 2013-14 Nissan Pathfinder, 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid, 2013 Infiniti JX35, and 2014 Infiniti QX60 and QX60 Hybrid because “a cable for a secondary hood latch is too short and could prevent it from latching,” potentially allowing the hood to open while the SUV is being driven.
        Bloomberg News (1/29, 2.94M) reports that the worldwide figures for the two recalls reached 768,000, as 552,135 Rogues were recalled around the world along with 215,789 SUVs.

        Reuters (1/29) and the AP (1/28) also report.
