And so it goes—Nissan is staging a major product recall. Due to an ignition problem, the manufacturer will recall 2.1 million cars worldwide, which will be “the third largest recall ever,” according to BBC News.
It’s The Ignition
The ignition problem could cause the engine to stall, but hasn’t yet been reported as the cause of any accidents or mishaps. The majority of the recall will take place in Japan and North America, and comes hot on the heels of Nissan’s 78,000-car recall earlier this year due to another engine problem.
The Recall Includes Multiple Models
Models that may be affected include:
- Infiniti QX56
Other models as well may present the same problem, so Nissan owners are encouraged to take their cars in for screening.
Fresh Out Of Anger
Between Toyota and BMW (not to mention Fisher Price), we can’t summon too much emotion about the newest recall. Yes, it’s annoying. Yes, it’s inconvenient. Yes, you must take your car to get checked out—because a little effort is nothing compared to your safety.
