Nissan Recalls 215,000 Cars for ABS Component Leaks and Fires

  Nissan Recalls 215,000 Cars for ABS Component Leaks and Fires Nissan is recalling the sedans and crossovers for the second time since an initial recall since 2016, to fix an anti-lock-braking system part that can catch fire under the hood. This is the second time Nissan has tried to repair vehicles with faulty ABS actuators—the component that pulses the brake lines to prevent wheel lockup during heavy braking—since an initial recall in August 2016. That recall affected only the 2015–2017 Murano and 2016–2017 Maxima.

An Australian couple's baby gender reveal burnout went awry when the car used for the burnout began spewing fire. Also, the proud parents will have a baby girl.

Gender reveal burnouts have become commonplace with car-loving parents who seek to use their existing hobby to announce additions to their families. Some tire manufacturers produce compounds designed to emit colored smoke when used for drifting or burnouts, and this Australian couple bought a pink pair to portend the birth of a baby girl. However, partway through the burnout, onlookers shrieked and pointed toward the car which a few seconds into the burnout began to emit fire from beneath its rear axle.

A South Australian couple’s gender reveal party took a dangerous turn after they ditched the traditional cake or confetti in favour of a car burnout that produced pink smoke. An Aussie couple’s plan to reveal their baby ’s gender with a burnout has ended in disaster after the car went up in flames.

The video cuts to an extinguished fire and absence of smoke, though a large burned patch is visible beneath the presumably immobilized car.


We speculate the fire's culprit to be a failed differential, probably caused by the tremendous stresses of performing a burnout. Not only did the rear axle have to transmit enough torque to keep the tires spinning for a long period of time, but it also did it with the brakes applied to keep the car stationary. All this stress was likely more than the factory differential could take, so it probably spit its guts and fluids on the ground. This could also explain the rapid spread of the fire, as the gear oil found even more heat once it reached the tires, as well as the oxygen with which to combust.

The price of this misadventure? Colored tire manufacturer Highway Max lists Australian dollar prices at $260 for a pink set. Used differential and rear axle prices are all over the map, but not cheap, eaning this escapade likely comes at a cost anywhere between $400 and $1,000 AUD—so about $300 to $735 USD—for the baby's gender reveal.

While we'll never knock a good burnout, this isn't one of them, and that money could have bought one heck of a cake—or a lot of diapers.
