Nissan Announces Worldwide Recall

Nissan has announced a worldwide recall of over two million vehicles for an ignition problem that can stall the engine. The recall affects vehicles in the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and Asia. Most of the recalled vehicles are in the US, Canada, and Japan. The Yokohama-based company has said there have been no accidents reported that are related to the recall.

The problem is with the relay in the ignition system and affects vehicles made between 2003 and 2006, including the Cube, March, Micra, and Note, as well as other models like the Tiida, Titan, and Infiniti QX56. Altogether, there are over a dozen models affected by the faulty ignition. The vehicles were built in the US, Britain, Japan, Spain, China, and Taiwan.

The automaker states that vehicle owners may take their defective vehicle to a dealership where the fix may take less than half an hour.

One of the main reasons so many millions of vehicles have been recalled over the last year is that the large automakers are using common components across several models in an effort to cut costs in design and production. As a result, you don't just see a few thousand vehicles in the same model recalled, you see dozens of models. Companies wind up losing not only money, but the even more valuable consumer brand loyalty.
