It's too early to tell yet if the recall affects any Australian-sold cars, but some models mentioned in the recall lineup are sold in Australia. Nissan says cars that could have potential ignition problems include the Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Tiida and the Nissan Micra, as well as other various four-wheel drives and small trucks sold in the US and Japan, such as the Nissan Titan and Infiniti QX56.
Nissan says the cars related to the recall were built in several countries, such as Britain, China, Japan, Taiwan and the United States of America, all of which were built between August 2003 and July 2006.
Nissan hasn't announced official procedure details of the recall but says it should take around 25 minutes to fix. We'll keep you updated as to whether the recall reaches Australia.
