Nissan Recalls Nearly 540,000 Vehicles Worldwide


nissanNissan Motor said this morning that it will recall nearly 540,000 vehicles worldwide, most of them in the United States, due to brake pedal defects and faulty fuel gauges. Nissan said in a statement it plans “to inspect and, if necessary, repair brake pedal pins and fuel-gauge components on certain trucks and minivans.””No accidents or injuries have been reported with these issues,” it said.

The recalls also affect Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, Ukraine, Russia and Taiwan, the statement said.

The models with faulty brake pedal pins are the Titan pickup trucks, the Armada and Infiniti QX56 SUVs and Quest minivans built between 2008 and 2010, the company said, adding that it would pull 178,916 units from the US.

The company said there were three reported cases of brake pedal pins loosening and causing problems with braking.

“Nissan has determined that a manufacturing error on the part of the supplier is at the root of this issue,” it said.
