A small number of Infiniti cars sold in Australia are required back at dealerships to have a possible cooling system fault attended to.
The ACCC recall notice advises that if the electric water pump in the cooling system for the hybrid drive system fails, the warning lamp will be turned on and the water temperature may rise.
If the vehicle continues to be driven in this condition, in an extreme case, the overheat protection control may operate and the engine and traction motor will stop.
What are the hazards?
The loss of motive power due to powertrain shut down may pose an accident hazard.
The ACCC saying that owners of affected vehicles will soon be contacted by their Infiniti Retail Centre and the vehicles will need to have their hybrid powertrain control module reprogrammed.
The work will be completed at no cost to owners.
