Nissan Recalls More Than 600,000 Vehicles


Japanese automaker Nissan (NSANY) is recalling more than 600,000 vehicles to fix potential problems on the lower steering column joint and shaft, and the positive battery cable terminal.

The company said that corrosion on the lower column joint on certain Frontier and Xterra vehicles can lead to cracking of the steering shaft. Some Sentras may also have an issue with the connector on the positive battery cable terminal that could cause stalling at low speeds.

No accidents or injuries have been reported for either problem.

Nissan will replace the steering column joint and shaft on about 303,000 Frontiers and 283,000 Xterras in North America and Latin America. The cars were made in Tennessee and Brazil between July 2001 and June 2008.

The positive battery cable terminal will be replaced on about 18,500 Sentras in North American, Latin American and African countries.
