Nissan Recall 2010: 540K Vehicles Recalled Over Brake Pedal Problems

Despite no reported accidents or injuries, here's everything you need to know about the big Nissan recall announced today.

540,000 cars have been recalled by Nissan Motor over faulty brake pedal issues that may also affect the fuel gauge.

As the AFP reports this morning, the recall covers "the Titan, Armada and Infiniti QX56 built from 2005 to 2008, and the Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra produced between January and March 2006 and between October 2007 and January 2008." The brake pedals could have faulty components that can cause the pedals to wobble, AFP reported.

The WSJ notes that the move comes on the heels of Nissan recalling more than 70,00 vehicles in Japan over engine electric cables. The vast majority of vehicles, some 418,865, are U.S. models.

Here's more from the AFP: "Vehicles at higher mileage levels may have fuel gauges which incorrectly indicate the amount of fuel in the tank. This may result in the vehicle running out of fuel while the gauge reads greater than empty."

Nissan said the problem were caused by its suppliers.
