Nissan North America said Thursday that it would recall about 750,000 vehicles in America and more than 2 million globally to fix a problem that could cause engine stalling in some Nissan and Infiniti truck and SUV models.
The Japanese automaker plans to replace an electrical relay for the engine control module in the vehicles. No accidents or injuries have been reported resulting from the problem, according to Nissan.
"At Nissan, we're committed to the safety and satisfaction of our customers. We regret any inconveniences that our customers may experience as we address this issue," said Kevin Martin, a Nissan vice president.
The affected vehicles include model year 2004 to 2006 Nissan Armadas, Nissan Titans and Infiniti QX56s and model year 2005 to 2006 Nissan Frontiers, Pathfinders and Xterras manufactured between August 2003 and June 2006.
Nissan said it recently discovered that on some of the vehicles silicon vapor can form inside the electrical relay that supplies voltage to the engine control module. The vapor can oxidize and cause stalling.
Nissan will begin to ask owners in December to bring their vehicles to dealers to have the electrical relay replaced. Customers with questions can call (800) 647-7261 for Nissan vehicles or (800) 662-6200 for Infiniti vehicles.
