Nissan is recalling 540,000 vehicles worldwide to fix faulty brake pedal pins and inaccurate fuel gauges. The Japanese automaker’s North American division said no accidents or injuries have been reported, but the company is initiating the recalls based on three reports of brake pedal pins partially disengaging, hindering braking ability. A separate, unrelated fuel-gauge issue can lead to inaccurate fuel readings in certain trucks and minivans. The gauge may show gas left when the tank is actually empty.
The brake pedal pin recall affects 2008, 2009 and 2010 Nissan Titan, Armada, Quest and Infiniti QX56 models – about 179,000 of which are in the United States. Owners of these vehicles should bring their vehicles to a Nissan or Infiniti dealership for a visual inspection, the company said. Repairs will be made as necessary. The fuel gauge recall affects 419,000 U.S. vehicles, including 2005 through 2008 Nissan Titan, Armada and Infiniti QX56 models, as well as Nissan Frontiers, Pathfinders and Xterras produced between January and March 2006 and between October 2007 and January 2008.
