Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti has announced a recall for some of its models, because of a problem with the accelerator sensor, which could cause the engine to stall.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that owners of the Infiniti M models, produced between 2006 and 2010, will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with an accelerator sensor. According to the agency, the accelerator sensor in the affected vehicles can cause the cars to go into the fail-safe mode once the pedal is pushed to the right while depressed and this can lead to stalling the engine in some cases, when coming to a stop or idling.
Owners of the 2006 – 2010 Infiniti M35 and M45 will be notified by the Japanese based automaker starting in November and the company’s dealers will reprogram the engine control module and replace the accelerator pedal free of charge. A total of 98,300 units of the Infiniti M models will be affected by this recall. The action is part of a larger recall, which affects 908,900 Nissan vehicles globally, including the X-Trail, the Serena or the Fuga.
