The Japanese based automaker Nissan had to recall its 2011 Juke models because of a problem with the turbocharger boost sensor bracket.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 28.294 units of the Nissan Juke will be affected by the recall. The NHTSA also says that the recall has been announced because of the turbocharger boost sensor bracket which may separate from the air inlet tube due to a defective weld. The recalled models of the Nissan Juke have been manufactured between April 9, 2012 and May 12, 2011.
“The turbocharger boost sensor bracket may separate from the air inlet tube due to a defective weld. If the bracket comes off, the vehicle could stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash”, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in its recalls summary of the problem.
Owners of the 28.294 Nissan Juke crossovers will have to make a trip back to the dealerships to have this issue fixed free of charge and the recall is expected to begin early next year, on January 9, 2012. Nissan also said that other models aren’t affected by this problem because they don’t use this air inlet tube. Owners of the above mentioned model can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
