Nissan is recalling over 120,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. because brake fluid could leak and cause fires.

FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:

Nissan's recall covers certain 2015 to 2017 Murano SUVs and 2016 to 2017 Maxima Sedans that are equipped with intelligent cruise control as well as 2015 and 2016 Murano hybrids.

Nissan says that seals on antilock brake pumps can leak fluid onto a circuit board that can cause an electrical short, which could lead to a fire. If fluid leaks the antilock brake warning light could stay on for 10 seconds after startup. Owners who see that should park outside.

Nissan says several vehicles have caught fire. Dealers will replace defective pumps for free.
