Nissan’s recall to impact over 9,600 made-in-India Micra cars

Japanese carmaker Nissan on Monday said the Indian market would not be impacted by the global recall of nearly 250,000 units, although over 9,600 Micra cars produced at its Chennai plant for Europe will be covered.

"Nissan has identified that fuel rail pressure sensor used in direct injection type engines of some of its models may have a problem. Therefore, Nissan has taken a proactive step to recall and replace the sensors on priority," a Nissan Motor India Private Ltd (NMIPL) spokesperson said.

As part of this exercise, the company has decided to recall over 9,600 units of its small car Micra, which were produced in India in 2011 and sold in Europe, the official added.
