Nissan Decides to Recall All New Vehicles it Sold in Japan Over Last Three Years
Nissan Motor Co Ltd is planning to recall all its 1.2 million fresh passenger cars it sold mainly in Japan over the last three years, after they discovered that the final car inspections and tests were not undertaken by authorized and legal technicians, the company declared on October 2, 2017. The recall happens to be the second most prominent misconduct event that involved a Japanese car manufacturer, after the established Mitsubishi Motors Corp confessed in April 2016, that it had forged the fuel economy for some of its local or domestic market car models.
Nissan is the second biggest car manufacturing company in Japan. The automobile manufacturer stated that it has decided to recall around 1.21 million of its passenger vehicles that are produced and manufactured for the national market from October 2014 to September 2017, including some of the most prevalent car sellers, the Note compact hatchback and the Serena minivan. The leading Japanese car manufacturer mentioned that all its recalled vehicles shall undergo a rigorous reinspection for concluding checks on severe issues that include steering acceleration, braking, and radius abilities, at cost of around 25 billion yen (US$ 222 million).
The CEO of Nissan, Hiroto Saikawa stated at a media conference that, “we should take the legal registration procedures and framework seriously, regardless of how short-staffed we might be occupied we may be with our work. We seriously apologize and feel sorry for the inconvenience our customers have faced.” Saikawa also added that their firm was inspecting why and how the investigation occurred, which is a process that normally takes around one month.
