Nissan is recalling more than 300,000 Pathfinder SUVs in the U.S. because defective hoods can cause them to flip open and obstruct drivers.

The recall could affect about 322,671 Pathfinder models from 2013 to 2016, according to documents U.S. safety agencies released Tuesday.

According to a safety recall report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, built up dust and dirt contamination could prompt the hoods to unexpectedly spring open.

"If this condition occurs, the hood may open without warning and obstruct the driver’s forward view, increasing the risk of crash,’ the report said.
