Nissan Recalling 747000 Cars in the U.S.

submitted on October 28, 2010 by siggy38 in "Products / Gadgets"
Nissan North America announced a recall on Thursday of 747,000 trucks and SUVs in the U.S. because of the risk of failure to the electrical systems.

The company said that it needs to replace the electrical relays in the engine control modules -- the computers that control engine performance and other essential components of motor vehicles.

The Japanese automaker said the problem may cause the engine to stall. In extreme cases, a stalled engine cannot be restarted.

Nissan said the recall extends to Nissan Armadas and Titans from 2004 to 2006, Infiniti QX56s from 2005 and 2006, as well as Nissan Frontiers, Pathfinders and Xterras from August 2003 and June 2006.

    Wow, that's surprising to hear that about Nissan. I thought they were one of the few auto makers that were immune to such terrible recalls.
