Nissan and Infiniti have announced a recall for their mechanically similar coupes over a power window glitch that could result in bruised or pinched limbs.

A programming error in the power window switch controller could affect the functioning of the auto-reverse feature, which in turn might result in what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration terms a "pinch injury" to a hand or finger: if a body part gets wedged into a closing window, the switch controller might not roll the window back down with sufficient haste to prevent a minor injury.

The recall affects certain model year 2011 and 2012 Nissan 370Z models and Infiniti G37 Coupes built from July 2, 2011 through August 28, 2011. In total, 1,788 vehicles will be impacted by the recall.

Nissan will start notifying owners of the problem starting on November 28, and dealerships will replace the faulty switches with new ones free of charge.
