First, there was Toyota (accelerator pedal, etc.) and then Honda (Fit power windows). Now, Nissan has issued a recall list for approximately 540,000 of its vehicles for a brake pin or fuel gauge-related problems. The six vehicles include the Titan, Frontier, Pathfinder, Quest, Xterra, and Infiniti QX56.
The brake problem involves a pin in the pedal that can become dislodged, causing a loss of braking. Nissan knows of three instances where it happened (two in the Middle East, one in the US), according to company spokesman Fred Standish.
