Nissan Recalls Almost 910,000 Vehicles Globally on Accelerator Sensor Issue image

Nissan will make a global recall of almost 910,000 vehicles due to a problem with an accelerator sensor.

Nissan said that it will recall 908,900 vehicles globally due to an issue with an accelerator sensor which might cause the engine to stall. From the total number of vehicles to be recalled, 764,800 will be in Japan. Nissan spokesman Chris Keeffe said that no injuries or accidents have been reported due to this problem so far.

The recalled vehicles have been manufactured in Japan between 2004 and 2013 and include the Fuga, Lafesta, X-Trail and Serena models. The 98,300 vehicles recalled in the US include several Infiniti M models. The automaker is also recalling vehicles in Oceania and Europe.

According to the company the accelerator pedal sensor might become unstable and result in unintended acceleration and maybe a stalled engine. The vehicles will have the accelerator pedals replaced and the engine control programming will be fixed, a procedure which will take around 90 minutes.

On another matter, several days ago, Nissan and Apple signed an agreement for iTunes Radio for vehicles. This new agreement between Nissan and Apple will make the Japanese automaker the “exclusive automotive launch partner” for iTunes Radio, a title which he will keep for the entire year.
