Nissan recalls 539,864 vehicles due to brake pedal pin issue

Nissan announced today that it will recall a total of 539,864 vehicles to repair brake pedal pins and fuel-gauge components on certain trucks and minivans. It said that no accidents or injuries have been reported with the two issues.

“At Nissan, we”re committed to the safety and satisfaction of our customers. We regret any inconveniences that our customers may experience as we take these precautions,” said Kevin Martin, vice president of Total Customer Satisfaction for NNA.

Nissan said that it has received three reported instances of brake pedal pins partially disengaging, causing a loss of normal braking ability, and that it has determined that a manufacturing error on the part of the supplier is at the root of this issue. The company assured that all vehicles currently on sale are free of this problem.

The Japanese automaker said that it has started notifying owners of the potentially affected vehicles. Customers with questions are encouraged to contact Consumer Affairs at 1-800-NISSAN1 (1-800-647-7261) for Nissan vehicles, or 1-800-662-6200 for Infiniti vehicles.
