The recall was issued due to a potential fault with the fuel sensor fitted to some Micra, Patrol, Tiida, and Juke models. Some Infinti QX56 and M56 models are also affected.
In a worst case scenario the sensor could leak, spilling fuel and causing a fire hazard. Nissan says no incidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the problem, and it is issuing the recall as a precautionary measure.
Although the Micra, Patrol and Tiida are sold in Australia, Nissan Australia told CarAdvice none of the vehicles sold here are affected.
Nissan's sports luxury brand, Infiniti, will be introduced in Australia later this year. The new FX30 and M sedan will be launched as part of the initial introduction during the third quarter of 2012.
