Nissan Motor Corp has announced they are voluntarily recalling over a three-quarters of a million vehicles worldwide for steering wheel issues. The No. 2 Japanese automaker will recall 841,000 vehicles worldwide, include the Micra compact car and the Cube.
As investigations into how Toyota handled faulty steering relay rods in the company's pickup trucks and SUVs continue, critics suggest that it's quickly becoming clear that the company has mishandled repair and recall efforts. According to a USA Today article, Toyota had repaired vehicles with the defect for over 11 years in the U.S. before deciding to initiate a recall in Japan, and a recall for the 977,000 affected American vehicles didn't occur until one year later.
