Nissan is recalling about 134,000 late-model cars, mainly in the United States and Canada, because a fluid leak in the braking system could lead to a fire, the company and U.S. regulators said on Friday.

No one has been injured due to the potential defect but several incidents were reported to Nissan of “thermal damage” to vehicles that could include some fires, a Nissan spokesman said. 

 Models involved are certain 2016-2017 Maxima sedans, 2015-2017 Murano SUVs, and 2015-2016 Murano Hybrid SUVs.

Drivers are advised that if they notice the anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light on the dashboard illuminated, they should stop driving the car immediately, park it outside, and call Nissan and a tow truck will be summoned to bring the vehicle to a dealership for inspection, a Nissan spokesman said.
