Shrink wrap

Shrink wrap

Nissan recalls over 360,000 first-gen Murano SUVs in the USA due to shrinking intake ducts.

Nissan has issued a recall for close to 363,000 Murano SUVs in America, fearing an engine stall risk due to reduced airflow.

The problem? Plastic. Apparently, the poly used to make the engine's air intake ducts is warping with age, and could lead to separation of the part, blocking the airflow and stalling the engine.

This follows other smaller recalls for seat belt and fuel tank issues.

It effects models built prior to 2007 - no word yet on a local recall.
