Nissan Motor Co. recalled 908,900 vehicles around the world Thursday for defective accelerator sensors that could cause the engine to stall.

The recall affects the Serena minivan, Infiniti M luxury model, X-trail sport utility vehicle and other models, the automaker said. No accidents have been reported related to the problem.

Most of the vehicles being recalled are in Japan. Others are in North America, Europe and Oceania, Yokohama-based Nissan said.

Sensors, manufactured in Japan, can malfunction, causing the vehicle to slow down and at times stop, it said.

The automaker has had several large recalls in the U.S. this year. Nissan joined other Japanese companies by recalling 480,000 vehicles for airbag issues in April. Nissan then recalled 841,000 cars in May due to steering issues and 13,000 Versa Notes were recalled just a month after it's launch due to problems with hardware in the body assembly.

        Uh-huh. And timing belts are a lot quieter then timing chains. Of course I've seen American cars with timing betls as well. And foreign including Asian cars with timing chains. If you're going to bash and troll, at least get your facts straight?

      Nissan has always had this problem. I would never buy a Nissan again. They also have very squeaky breaks, too.

        1) Gee...I have an Infiniti. Made by Nissan. Never had an issue like this, and my car is a 2009. 2) My BRAKES aren't squeaky. 3) I have a friend that bought a Nissan in 2010. They don't have issues like what you described. Maybe in YOUR experience you had a Nissan with issues like that, but that doesn't mean every Nissan on the planet has had said issues. :P

        I do keep buy it, but I don't have to buy it as often as American cars because Japanese cars have much longer lives. I I had my first Nissan for 11 years and traded it in, still in running condition with 277 K miles, for a new Nissan that I hope will last just as long. My husband had a wonderful 1992 Honda that our son is still driving. These cars have also had very maintenance issues over the years that we've had them.

        So-as an example-my 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T that was assembled in Canada with a motor that was made in Mexico is how I should stick with American....right? But I should get rid of my wife's Jap-Crap 2006 Toyota Tundra 'cause it's made it Texas...

        Ayep. Well, I've had American cars that ran well. And I've had American cars I couldn't wait to sell or trade in due to all of the flaws. Same with Japanese makes. Other family members can say the same thing about German makes. I know one guy with a Hyundai he loves, no major issues at all. And another with one only two years older that has been a terrible car almost from day one. Of course, can we really take an obvious troll seriously, I mean the guy uses what many Japanese take to be a racial slur, "Jap". :P

        Yeah, you were lucky enough to get three cars that didn't have recalls. I own an Infinti that has no recalls. Japanese make. EVERY brand has models that have had recalls.

      Well guess what guys there is no Automobile that is 100% American Made,----- 100% of the onboard computers are Made in Japan &China as well as all the other Electric & Electronics . even the Head lights & tail lights . Buick & Caddys are now made in China . I Own a Jap 2009 Honda CRV but its made OHIO USA so its a Half Breed lol What is even worse American Icon the Jeep is no longer 100% American Made. Mexico is Making the 4. 6 & 8 cylinder Engines and also the Automatic Transmissions. Jeep Junk Made in Mexico land of Taco;s Baskets.

        Obvious troll is obvious and named jguss69. Gee, four posts just to comment on Japanese and in one case Korean cars? You must be desperate for attention. Of course you even throw in some knee jerk political bashing in one of your four inane posts as well. Oh well, I guess for some people like..oh you a mind is just a terrible thing, period.

        And yet I own an Infiniti, which is made by Nissan that IMO has been one of the best cars I've ever owned.

      Yes all auto companys have recalls I work at a few dealers as many cars they make these days. I bet if you wrote your vin number down and what into the service center ask if there is a recall on any bucket any body riding you well see. I like both american and japan cars.
