    Nissan in huge car recall

    BBC News, Thursday, 30 October, 2003

    Japanese car manufacturer Nissan is recalling more than 2.5 million cars worldwide, because of an engine defect.

    The safety recall affects the Primera, X-Trail, Almera and Almera Tino models, built since 1998.

    It follows reports of engines stalling and then failing to re-start. The fault has been traced to defective sensors in the engine management system, which will be replaced free of charge.

    The recall - the largest in Nissan's 70-year history - includes 100,000 cars sold in the UK.

    No accidents

    Nissan said the recall would cost it 15bn-16bn yen ($139m-148m; £81m-87m).

    It said there had been no reports of any accidents or injuries as a result of the fault.

    A Nissan spokesman said the company would contact owners of Primera, X-Trail, Almera and Almera Tino cars by the end of November.

    He said the fault was relatively minor and could be rectified in less than an hour.

    "To issue a recall is never good news but it is important, now we have identified the problem, to get the cars in," the spokesman said.

    Nissan is Japan's third biggest car maker and is 44%-owned by France's Renault.

    Earlier this year it reported operating profits of 737bn yen for the past financial year.

    Nissans are unbreakable.

    Just like Macs are unhackable.

    Just G20... unless that Primera model doesn't have the SR (since it includes Almera Tino, I assume NOT)

    Nissan always takes care of their problems, that's why Nissan > *

    just a side note. .
    beats my domestically built Rodeo (GM product) that was recalled for faulty seat belts.
    I got into a rollover before I could take it in, but it held. :big grin:

    Yeah, Nissan doesn't make many mistakes, but when they make a minor error, they take care of it. .
    :cool: which is why it'd be hard for me to switch from Nissan. Not many other companies out there I trust as much.
