Nissan is on the brink of a recall in the neighbourhood of 841,000 units of its Micra and Cube models, after a possible issue involving steering wheel bolts in the vehicles first made news last week. The recall spans the 2002 to 2006 model years, and so far has affected cars on 4 continents, as well as Oceania and the Middle East.

Allegedly, the problem may be due to improper tightening of a steering wheel bolt in the models, which at it’s worst could lead to a total loss of steering. The Micra models affected were built in the UK and Japan, and the Cubes just in Japan. Repairs are expected to be minor- the bolt will either be tightened, or if necessary, a new steering wheel will be installed.

 

Nissan has not announced the start date of the recall, but owners of these models are expected to receive a more official announcement from the automaker as soon as this information is available. According to Reuters, there are currently no reports of injuries or accidents as a result of these recent problems.
