Nissan to recall 800,000+ cars

Due to a faulty steering wheel in Nissan's Micra models manufactured between 2002-2006, the manufacturer has announced a recall of more than 800,000 cars.

Nissan urged that there was not a sudden a danger to the affected vehicles, but that one of the bolts in the wheel had not been screwed on properly.

At this time, the fault has caused no reported incidences however Nissan have commented that drivers would feel the steering wheel become looser over time.

A Nissan Motor GB spokesman commented: "Over time, the nut that holds on the steering wheel can become loose. Drivers could start notice some wobbling of the wheel and if this is ignored there is the possibility that it could come completely off."

This comes at a bad time for Nissan who earlier in the year had to recall 500,000 vehicles due to an airbag fault.
