While Nissan tries their hardest to make all of their cars without any kinks sometimes there are malfunctions. To make sure Nissans are performing at top performance, Nissan is recalling over 800,000 vehicles worldwide. The Micra compact car, produced in Europe and Japan until 2006 and the Nissan Cube will be recalled. The recall is due to a steering wheel glitch. This is a global recall, with vehicles in Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East all affected.
The steering wheels have bolts that may not have been properly tightened and may inhibit steering wheel function. In a worst-case scenario, drivers could lose steering control. Steering wheels can either be repaired at a dealership or replaced. The repair takes around 40 minutes, according to Nissan spokeswoman Noriko Yoneyama.
The Micra is a subcompact hatchback car sold worldwide, while the Cube was also a small subcompact car sold globally. Neither was ever sold in the United States. “There is a very, very small risk that there are any 2002-2006 Micra models that require attention, but safety is our upmost priority which is why we are recalling all vehicles potentially affected,” a UK spokesman for Nissan said
