Improper tests force Nissan to recall 150,000 vehicles


TOKYO, Japan – Citing improper tests carried out on a number of its new units, the Japanese carmaker Nissan has decided to recall thousands of its vehicles. 

In a statement on Friday, the carmaker announced that it was issuing a recall of almost 150,000 vehicles due to concerns that improper tests were carried out on the new units. 

Earlier this year, it was revealed that several vehicles of the carmaker went through improper inspections, following which Nissan recalled several vehicles.

Nissan said on Friday that it had discovered similar cases of improper tests carried out on its cars across a range of 42 models. 

The Japanese car giant said in its statement that it regrets any inconvenience or concern that the recall has caused to its valued customers and other stakeholders in Japan.

Nissan said, “Strict adherence to compliance is a top priority for Nissan’s management, and if issues are discovered, appropriate measures will be taken. Nissan is committed to promoting and enforcing compliance and awareness thereof in all operational areas.”

It added, “Through steadfast implementation of these initiatives, Nissan will work diligently to regain the trust of its valued customers and stakeholders in Japan.”

According to the carmaker, the latest recall is being carried out over concerns about their brakes and steering – with cars from 11 different models being impacted, including the Note and Left electric vehicles.

The revelation about improper tests that was made earlier this year triggered a series of recalls by the company, which recalled over 165,000 vehicles in the month of September.

The recalls announced during the month even affected some vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.

At the time, the carmaker said that it had issued the recall over concerns that key-ignition switches could wear out over time.

It said that in some cases, this could cause the engine to shut off while the vehicle was moving.

Following Friday’s recall, the total number of Nissan vehicles recalled this year over testing concerns reach over 1 million.
