Nissan Recalls 320000 Vehicles

Nissan has been forced to issue a recall of 320,000 cars in its home market of Japan, following eight reports of cars that have set on fire.

The problem has been traced to a defective coating on the cars’ electronic control units that could cause a short circuit within the complex electronic systems, and even fire in the worst-case scenario.

Nissan has said that the issue only affects cars sold in Japan.

Six models in particular are affected by the recall, including the Serena MPV as well as other people carriers and vans manufactured for Suzuki Motor Corp and Mitsubishi Motors Corp between February 2010 and September 2014.
