The affected vehicles have a center console trim panel that may catch the driver's shoe and delay the transition from the accelerator pedal to the brake pedal.
CONSEQUENCE:A delay in the application of the brake pedal would lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will modify the console trim panel, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by mid-October 2015. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
