Nissan agrees to settle faulty brakes lawsuit; past and current owners can get up to $800

Nissan has agreed to pay some customers up to $800 each to settle claims that certain vehicles had faulty brakes.

A judge still has to approve the proposed settlement.

The claims come from a lawsuit filed in 2011 that said the brakes on the 2004 to 2008 versions of the Nissan Titan, Nissan Armada and Infiniti QX56 failed suddenly.

Nissan says the settlement will cover about 350,000 vehicles. Both current and previous owners will be able to receive a refund.

Nissan says it will pay between $20 and $800 to reimburse owners who replaced or repaired the brakes. The amount depends on how much mileage was on the vehicle.

A Nissan spokesman declined to comment.
