Nissan to recall 841,000 vehicles
Tokyo, May 23, 2013
Nissan Motor Company will recall about 841,000 vehicles worldwide including the Micra compact car, also known as the March, as a result of a steering wheel glitch, Japan's No.2 automaker said on Thursday.
Nissan is recalling certain models of the Micra compact car produced in Britain and Japan between 2002 and 2006, as well as the Cube, produced in Japan around the same period.
It is pulling back vehicles in Japan, Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.
The bolt used in the steering wheel of these cars may not have been properly tightened and at worst the steering wheel may not function, Nissan said in a statement filed to the Japanese transport ministry.
No accidents, injuries or deaths have been reported, Nissan spokeswoman Noriko Yoneyama said. Nissan will fix the glitch by either tightening the bolts or replacing the steering wheel with a new one.
The repair will take about 40 minutes, Yoneyama said. She declined to say how much the recall will cost Nissan. - Reuters
