Nissan to recall more than 500,000 vehicles

Now it's Nissan's turn.

The Japanese automaker said today in Tokyo that it would recall 539,864 trucks, SUVs and minivans in the U.S., Asia and Europe to fix problems with brakes and fuel gauges. Nissan also makes the pricier Infiniti brand. Most of the recalled vehicles are in the United States.

Nissan said there have been no injuries associated with the problems. Fuel gauges in higher-mileage vehicles may show the incorrect amount of fuel remaining and a pin in the brake assembly may partially disengage.

The vehicles being recalled for the brake assembly are:

  • Infiniti QX56 SUV.

  • Titan pickup truck.

  • Armada SUV.

  • Quest minivan.

    The vehicles being recalled for faulty fuel gauges are:

  • Frontier pickup truck.

  • Pathfinder and Xterra SUV.

    Nissan recalled more than 76,000 vehicles in Japan last week for electrical problems.

    I feel like they're recalling vehicles in solidarity with Toyota. :)

    How interesting to note that our bunch of idiots in the Senate have chosen to castigate Toyota, but at the same time ignore the recall of General Motors this past few days. Could it be that most of the committee doing the investigation??? have in the past or are now getting contributions from GM. Also, now that we (the government) own GM perhaps it is not expedient to go after them. This is even more evidence that we have a bunch of self serving meatheads in Congress At the present time approval of congress sits at 14%. By the end of this quarter it will in all probability be under 12%. In all fairness the Congressional committee should have hearings on the GM and Nissan recalls. But, chances are it will never happen as long as the Dems are in thier pocket.
