Nearly 800K Nissan SUV’s Recalled
Nissan has announced a recall of nearly 800,000 SUVs in the U.S. and Canada due to a defect with the dash side harnesses.
The recall affects nearly 793,000 Nissan Rogue units from 2014, 2015 and 2016 model years.
“In affected vehicles, if water and salt collect in the driver’s side foot well and side sill, it may wick up the dash side harness tape and enter the connector, which may cause corrosion. Corrosion at the connector may cause issues such as driver’s power window or power seat inoperative, AWD warning light on, battery discharge, and or thermal damage to the connector. In rare cases, a fire could potentially occur, increasing the risk of injury.”reads a description of the defect, per Nissan
Nissan plans to send out invitation to repair letters to the owners who were impacted by the defect. The letter instructs owners to bring their SUV to an authorized Nissan dealer to have the repairs completed free of charge.
Elon Musk Offered Teen $5K to Shut Down Twitter Account Tracking His Private Flights
Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently offered $5,000 to a 19-year-old in order to shut down a Twitter account that tracks his private flights.
Jack Sweeney runs 15 flight-tracking accounts using a bot he created that automatically posts when a celebrity’s flight leaves or lands at an airport.
“I don’t love the idea of being shot by a nutcase,” Musk said in the message.
“Any chance to up that to $50k? It would be great support in college and would possibly allow me to get a car, maybe even a Model 3,” Sweeney responded back.
The last interaction between the two occurred a week ago. The teenager said he would delete the account for no money if Musk gave him an internship. Musk has not yet responded.
