Problem Description:
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinder vehicles manufactured June 20, 2012, to November 18, 2013, 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid vehicles manufactured July 18, 2013, to November 18, 2013, 2013 Infiniti JX35 vehicles manufactured November 29, 2011, to June 14, 2013, and 2014 QX60 vehicles manufactured May 16, 2013, to November 18, 2013, and 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid vehicles manufactured July 18, 2013, to November 18, 2013. In the affected vehicles the hood release cable assembly may have been installed incorrectly preventing the latching claw from fully engaging. The secondary latch may remain in the open position when the hood is closed.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will modify the angle of the hood release mechanism to provide additional length to the release cable, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

I just picked up my new 2015 QX60 today. Got it home and opened the hood to check out the engine compartment and fluids. I went to close the hood and it will not fully latch. The secondary latch does engage, but the main latch does not and the hood will not fully close.

I only see the aforementioned latch recall affecting 2014 and earlier QX60's. Do you think my issue may be related to the latch recall issue.

If anyone has any ideas to help me get the hood to fully latch so I can take it in for service, would be greatly appreciated.
