Specifically, the vehicle’s engine control module can substantially cut the engine’s power after detecting hard acceleration. This power reduction is accomplished by cutting fuel, and it’s possible that the computer could cut the fuel enough to stall the car.
This recall affects 12,943 vehicles, and the fix involves reprogramming the vehicle’s engine management system. This work, like all recalls, will be performed free of charge. Infiniti expects to start the recall repair work on May 25.
