Nissan will recall 540,000 vehicles ... =1,1675493

Late today, Nissan Motor (NSANY), Japan's third-biggest car maker, said it will recall about 540,000 vehicles worldwide due to potential defects in brake pedal pins and fuel-gauge components, mostly in the United States.

Nissan said five models from 2008 to 2010, including the Titan truck and Armada SUV, would be recalled due to the risk of the brake pedal pins partially disengaging, causing a loss of normal braking ability.

This recall will involve 179,000 cars in the U.S. and 25,800 in other regions, a Nissan statement said. There have been three reported cases of this braking problem.

Nissan also announced plans to recall 419,000 cars in the U.S. and 53,000 in other regions for a separate problem with the fuel gauge, which at higher mileage levels can fail to accurately indicate how much fuel is left in the tank.

The gauge problem involve six models from the 2005 to 2008 model years, including the Titan, Armada and the Infiniti QX56.

General Motors announced a recall of 1.3 million vehicles due to failing power-steering motors allegedly responsible for 14 crashes.

The recall, which involves the 2005-10 Chevrolet Cobalt; 2007-10 Pontiac G5; 2005-06 Pontiac Pursuit sold in Canada, and the 2005-06 Pontiac G4 sold in Mexico.

GM said it has received 1,100 complaints of loss of power steering, including 14 complaints of crashes and one injury.

Toyota has recalled more than 8.5 million vehicles because of acceleration problems.

I have had a problem with fule gauage thing and I had paid almost $1800.00 to have it fixed. I better be getting some money back...

there were a total of 3, brake issues. 2 in US, one in middle east. None lost brakes, pedal just goes a little cock-eyed.


As for the fuel level sender, i have no idea how anyone paid $1800.00, I hope you do get your $ back, but whoever did it is gonna have a hard time explaining unless the $160 part too 12 hours of labor at $100/hr...

Funny that 3 brake pins warrants a recall, but all the IPDM's so far don't....but don't worry guys....
