DETROIT - Nissan is recalling more than 793,000 small SUVs in the U.S. and Canada because water can get into wiring, which in rare cases could start a fire.

The recall covers Nissan Rogue SUVs from the 2014 through 2016 model years. The Rogue is Nissan's top-selling vehicle in the U.S.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in documents that water and salt can enter a wiring connector in the driver's foot well, causing corrosion.

The corrosion can disable the driver's power window or power seat, cause the all-wheel-drive warning light to come on, or drain the battery. Government documents posted Wednesday say Nissan has seven reports of fires or "thermal incidents."
