Nissan Recalls 908,900 Vehicles for Faulty Accelerator Sensor

By | September 26, 2013
Nissan has announced a recall that will affect over 908,900 vehicles globally, and around 98,300 vehicles in the United States. The recall was issued due to an issue with the accelerator sensor that may cause the engine to stall. All affected vehicles were produced from Japanese assembly plants between 2004 and 2013, where the recall affects the largest number of vehicles at 764,800. Of those, the specific models include the Serena, X-Trail, Lafesta, and Fuga for Japan and other outside markets. Here in the United States, only select Infiniti M models are affected by this recall. Nissan is also recalling vehicles from Europe and Oceana. The reason for the recall is due to the accelerator sensor that could become unstable, causing slower acceleration and even a stalled engine. No accidents or injuries have been reported to Nissan in relation to this recall as of yet. All accelerator pedals in the affected vehicles will be replaced, and the engine control programming will be fixed as well. The process is expected to take no more than 90 minutes.
