Summary:
      Nissan of North America, Inc "Nissan" is recalling certain 2009 Murano vehicles. The valves within the ABS Hydraulic Control Units "HCU" may react with brake fluids containing specific corrosion preventative additives. This reaction may cause the valves to not close properly.
Consequence:
      If the valves do not properly close, additional brake pedal travel may be required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Nissan has notified owners, and dealers will flush the brake system with DOT 4 fluid. The HCU will then be tested to detect a possible stuck valve condition. If necessary, the HCU will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began February 7, 2019. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.
