More than 47,000 Nissan “Leaf” electric cars are being tagged with a possible brake malfunction in the U.S. and Canada.
U.S. safety regulators say the problem is centered on a relay inside the cars’ electronic brake booster.
The recall states very cold temperatures can cause the relay to fail, requiring a driver to put more effort into operating the brakes.
No accidents or injuries have been reported.
According to the automaker, purchasers are being notified and Dealers will reprogram software that controls the recalled cars’ brake control, free of charge.
The recall encompasses 46,859 Leafs in the U.S. and another 679 in Canada from the 2013 through 2015 model years.
