Recall roundup: Nissan Dualis (Qashqai) image

The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall for the Dualis models (Qashqai) in Australia because of a problem with the steering.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), a total of almost 3,000 units of the Nissan Dualis, or Nissan Qashqai as it is being known on other markets, will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem fixed with the loss of steering. The ACCC says that a fault with the steering wheel boss could potentially result in a loss of steering in the crossovers.

The affected Nissan Dualis have been produced between the 27th of February 2012 and the 16th of March 2012. Nissan says that the steering wheel boss, which is connecting to the steering column, may separate from it because of not having the appropriate strength. No incidents have been reported to Nissan Australia of crashes or injuries of the Dualis models because of this problem but owners of the vehicle mentioned above should be aware that a recall has been issued for them and they should contact their local Nissan dealership in Australia right away.
