DETROIT — Nissan Motor Corp. will ask owners to return more than 180,000 vehicles for addition of a device that is designed to prevent unintended acceleration, a company officer said Monday.
The voluntary recall involves 1979-87 280ZX and 300ZX cars with automatic transmissions, said Richard T. Hartzell, vice president for service at Nissan's U.S. marketing arm in Carson, Calif.
The company will install an interlock free at Nissan dealerships so the car cannot be put into gear without depressing the brake, Hartzell said.
The recall involves 180,531 vehicles, he said.
Nissan has received reports of 180 incidents of unintended acceleration in the vehicles, company spokesman Bill Pauli said.
