Nissan Recalls More Than a Half-Million Vehicles

. By
New York, NYNissan revealed late yesterday that it is recalling more than a half-million vehicles to remedy problems with steering problems and battery cables. In rare cases, a failure could be devastating.

According to CNN, about 303,000 Frontier and 283,000 Xterra SUVS will be in need of a replacement for the lower steering column joint and shaft. Nissan says that the lower steering column joint can be susceptible to corrosion that can limit the movement of the joint over time.

If not rectified, the defect could lead to the cracking of the steering shaft.

The SUVs affected were manufactured in 2002 through 2004.

Additionally, some 18,500 Sentra sedans manufactured in Mexico are being recalled for a battery cable defect that could lead to starting problems—or worse—the potential for stalling at low speeds.

The Sentras involved were manufactured between May 15th and July 8th in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

Most of the recalled vehicles were sold in the US—about 515,000. The remainder were sold in Canada, together with several Latin American and African countries.

Nissan said it still is in the throes of securing replacement parts for the vehicles. Once that is done, the company will be alerting owners as to the recall status of their vehicles, and a repair schedule, in early December.
