Infiniti Announces Recall of 1997 and 1998 Q45 and I30 Sedans
    GARDENA, Calif., July 6 -- Today Infiniti announced a
voluntary safety recall on approximately 2,295 1997 and 1998 model year
Infiniti Q45 vehicles manufactured from April to July 1997 and approximately
14,440 1997 and 1998 model year Infiniti I30 vehicles manufactured from March
to July 1997.
    Q45 and I30 vehicles manufactured during those periods may contain a
damaged diode in the alternator.  This could eventually result in an
electrical short in the diode which could cause a fire in the alternator that
could spread to the engine compartment.  No injuries or fatalities have
occurred due to this malfunction.
    To repair this condition at no cost to the customer, Infiniti will replace
the alternator in the affected vehicles.  Infiniti will begin contacting the
owners of those vehicles today to request that they schedule appointments with
Infiniti retailers to replace the alternators.  A free service loan car may be
arranged if the consumer requires alternate transportation.
    Infiniti is committed to a high level of customer service and is working
with its dealers to address this condition for Q45 and I30 customers.
