Road salt used for winter road maintenance can cause corrosion in the strut housing of older model Nissan Pathfinders and Infiniti QX4 SUVs currently sold or registered in Canada and cold weather states in the U.S.

The Problem: Road salt and melted snow can build in the strut housing causing it to corrode and possibly crack. This can result in grinding noises, increased steering effort, and even the loss of steering.
