Nissan has issued a recall of 2.14 million vehicles due to possible engine failure caused by a faulty ignition-system part (“the relay”) in Nissan cars and trucks manufactured between 2003 and 2006. This Nissan recall includes over 700,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. The recall cuts across Nissan’s line of car and trucks, including the Micra, Cube and Note, Tiida sedan, Titan pickup, the Infiniti QX56, and a bunch of other Nissans that I have never heard of before.
This is big news because it impacts so many vehicles, hopefully generating a lot of new readers to this blog (hi, how are you? stay a while and visit our website). But, practically, this is going to be a quick fix. Nissan will be able to fix this problem in less than 30 minutes per vehicle and will use the visit to push a few other services. “Hey, did you know you really need to get your oil changed which we can do for almost less than double the Jiffy Lube around the corner?”
That said, this Nissan recall is reported to be the third largest recall in automotive history.
