Japan-based auto giant Nissan Auto said that it will recall around 841,000 vehicles across the globe due to a steering glitch. The company will recall the Micra compact car, also known as March in some countries, among other models.
Nissan will be recalling certain models of the Micro compact car that were produced in Britain between the year 2002 and 2006. The company is also recalling the Cube that was produced in Japan around the same time. Nissan is pulling back the vehicles from the countries like Japan, Asia, Europe, Oceania, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. The vehicles have been recalled as the bolt used in the steering wheel of the cars might not have been fixed properly.
The worst outcome of this issue is that the steering wheel might not function properly. The information about the recall was given by the company in a statement that was filed to the Japanese transport ministry. Noriko Yoneyama, spokesperson for Nissan said that so far, no injuries, deaths or accidents have been reported and that the company will fix the problem as soon as possible.
Nissan will be fixing the glitch by either tightening the bolt or replacing the steering wheel with a new one. The repair work is expected to take about 40 minutes and the company refused to comment on how much it will cost them.
