Nissan Motor Co. is recalling more than 900,000 vehicles due to a problem with defective accelerator sensors used in a wide range of models that could cause their engines to stall unexpectedly.

The vast majority of the vehicles covered by the recall were produced for the Japanese export market, though some were shipped to other regions of the world. That includes the United States, were  nearly 100,000 of the products are being targeted for repair, most of them sold through the Infiniti brand.

A News Source Worth Sharing!

According to Nissan, the sensor used to detect the way the throttle pedal is being depressed can become unstable. That can lead the vehicle to accelerate less aggressively than a motorist might intend – and, in some circumstances, it can cause the vehicle to stop or even stall out entirely.


Nissan Recalls Infiniti, Nissan Trucks for Bad Welds

Lower control link on front wheels can unexpectedly fail.

The tubing in question came from South Korea.

Nissan is recalling more than 41,000 model year 2010 Titan, Armada, QX56, Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder vehicles manufactured from November 19, 2009 through March 3, 2010 for a problem with the front wheels, which could send the trucks out of control.

The lower control link assembly has two made cylindrical collars forming the inboard attachment points to the chassis. Because of improper welding, some collars may contain welds that do not meet specifications. The tubing in question came from South Korea.

Nissan told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that if the collar weld separates, the vehicle handling will deteriorate because the wheel’s camber would radically change, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.

Nissan will notify owners and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during June 2010. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to NHTSA Campaign ID number: 10V208000.
