Now it's Nissan's Turn to Recall Millions of Vehicles

The Japanese manufacturers are having a rough year. First Toyota. Now Nissan.

Nissan has announced its third largest recall in its history, over ignition defects involving 2,140,000 vehicles. The defect can lead to engine stalling and involves a variety of Nissan models, from its small minicar up to its big Infiniti QX56 SUV luxury model.

Turns out the defect can stall out the vehicle and you may not be able to restart it.

The recalled Nissan vehicles were built in Japan, the US, Canada, Spain and Great Britain, indicating a design issue may be at the root of the problem.

Recalled vehicles were built from August 2003 to July 2006 and involves, in the US, model years 2004 and 2005 and 2006 Nisan Armada vehicles, Titan trucks, and the Infiniti QX56 Suv. also recalled are 2005 and 2006 Nissan Frontier vehicles, Pathfinder vehicles, and the Xterra model vehicles.

Although the fix can be quick, this Nissan recall follows a flurry of safety and emissions related actions by toyota and BMW and Honda too.

If you've got a recalled Nissan, get it to your dealer right away for repair. You don't want to be heading down the highway and have it stall out on you.
