Nissan has indentified problems with brake pedal pins which come loose and faulty fuel gauges on Titan, Armada, Quest and Infiniti QX56 vehicles built between 2008 and 2010 and as a result is recalling nearly 540,000 pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and minivans, most of which are in the US.
Nissan said there had been three instances of brake pedal pins partially disengaging but “no accidents or injuries have been reported”.
Japan’s third largest carmaker is notifying owners of potentially affected vehicles and asking them to bring their vehicles into dealers to be checked.
It is also encouraging customers whose vehicle might have the fuel gauge problem to keep their tank at least half full.
Nissan blamed the supplier of the brake pedal pins for the “manufacturing error” and said that all vehicles currently on sale are free of the problem.
