130,000 Nissans with "intelligent keys" recalled
Approximately 70,000 Muranos built between summer 2004 and July 2006, along with 300 in Taiwan and 800 in Singapore will be recalled. Also included in the recall are 10,000 Maxima sedans sold in North America and 51,000 X-Trail and Murano SUVs in Japan. Those vehicles were produced between August 2004 and July 2006.
The recall only covers vehicles with "intelligent keys." Nissan's announcement explained that the lock device of the ignition key does not lock properly in some vehicles, preventing drivers from shutting off the engine.
There have been no reports of injuries. This is one of several large recalls that have been announced in the past couple of months by the major Asian and US manufacturers. Just in the past month we've reported on recalls from Ford, Toyota, Honda, Mazda and Chrysler that have effected more than 760,000 vehicles.
