Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) and Nissan Motor Co. Ltd (OTC: NSANY) are both recalling vehicles with potential fire hazards.

The Nissan recall is bigger, involving more than 450,000 vehicles worldwide, including some model years of Murano, Infinity and Pathfinder SUVs and Maxima sedans. Most affected vehicles are in North America, the company said.

Nissan said the fire risk stems from a brake fluid leak.
