Nissan recalls 1.01 million vehicles

TOKYO

"Nissan Motor Co. said Friday it was recalling more than 1 million vehicles because of problems with the gas tanks.

The recall affects 1,015,306 units of the company's March and Cube subcompacts that were manufactured between 1991 and 2000, spokeswoman Pauline Kee said.

The vehicles can have small cracks in the gas tanks that leak fuel fumes. Nissan will repair the problem free of charge.

"It creates an uncomfortable smell," Kee said. "It's not a safety problem."

Nissan expects the recall to cost 3 billion yen ($25.6 million).

About 4,000 of the vehicles were sold overseas, mostly in Southeast Asia. About 600,000 of the affected vehicles are expected to still be on the road."

I like Nissan and all, but ouch...and isn't this just about all the Nissans out on the road in the world today? :P

That's a huge number. Doesn't seem like a big deal though, all subcompacts in Asia.

  • I enjoy the smell of gasoline once in a while.
  • How could it not be a safety problem?
