Nissan Motor Co. is recalling around 908,900 vehicles globally, including 98,300 models in the United States, due to a flaw in an accelerator sensor that could cause the engine to stall, the carmaker said.
No accidents or injuries have been reported to Nissan, spokesman Chris Keeffe said.
The affected vehicles were produced in Japan between 2004 and 2010. In Japan, the recall affects 764,800 vehicles and covers certain Serena, X-Trail, Lafesta and Fuga model vehicles.
In the United States, the recall includes certain Infiniti M models. The company is also recalling some vehicles in other regions including Europe and Oceania, Keeffe said.
The accelerator pedal’s sensor could become unstable, potentially resulting in less-than-intended acceleration and in the worst case, a stalled engine, the company said.
The accelerator pedals will be replaced and engine control programming fixed to address the problem, which will take about 90 minutes, Keeffe said.
