Nissan Australia has issued a recall of 11 examples of the Nissan R52 Pathfinder Hybrid, listed as Model Year 2019 (MY19), due to a potential fire hazard.

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the oil feed line for the Pathfinder's transmission may have been installed in reverse orientation.

Nissan says over time, stress may cause the oil feed line to crack and split, potentially spilling oil onto the car's exhaust or other hot surfaces, increasing the possibility of a fire.

Affected vehicles were sold between 30 April 2019 and 18 June 2019. Nissan Australia is contacting owners to organise inspection and repair of the defect.

A spokesperson for Nissan Australia has told CarAdvice there are no known instances caused by the oil feed line, and the recall is purely precautionary.
