Nissan just issued a recall last week because of faulty ABS units:

Nissan North America, inc. announced this week that they will be recalling certain models of the 2008 Nissan Xterras due to brake effectiveness. On Certain Sport Utility Vehicles, the antilock brake system/vehicle dynamic control (ABS/VDC) actuator is designed with one ball in the valve section. Some ABS/VDC actuators were manufactured with more than one ball in the valve.

What can happen in ABS/VDC actuators with more than one ball, it is possible that fluid flow could be blocked and cause a reduction in brake force in one or both front wheels or Affect operation of the ABS AND/OR VDC. This could result in a reduction in brake effectiveness without warning increasing the risk of a crash.

This recall covers Xterras with the manufacturer dates of 10-19-07 thru 10-29-07. Dealers will replace the ABS/VDC actuator with a new one. the recall is expected to begin on or about Novembver 17, 2007. Owners may contact NISSAN at 1-800-647-7261.
It's been posted already as noted above.

That's OK, it was hidden away in another post, where a few people may have read it. At least here, it has an appropriate title and announcement.

Thank you for the heads up!

I tried the toll free number and, of course, it was a long wait and ended when I was told by a machine to call back later.

Suggestion: The dealer can use your VIN to look for any recalls on their computer. This may be faster than holding for 'the next available operator' at Nissan or for a notice that may or may not arrive from Nissan.

Our dealer's svc. mgr. says he looks up any new unit's VIN that comes in, just in case. If there is a recall or something to be done on it, he has it performed before it is put on the lot. If it is in for service, he also checks.
