Nissan is recalling approximately 1.4 million vehicles globally due to issues related to acceleration.

Owners have reported instances of sudden throttle increase after disengaging cruise control or motor shutdown while driving. The affected models include Note, Kicks, Leaf, and Serena. The recall covers vehicles in the United States, Europe, and Japan. In Japan alone, nearly 700,000 units are affected, accounting for half of the global total. The problems in Japan involve defective engine hose covers, faulty vehicle control programs causing acceleration after cruise control is stopped, wiring issues, and a problem with the right headlight.

The recall campaign has not been officially launched yet, but customers can check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) recall website or contact Nissan directly for further information and to schedule repairs. No accidents resulting from these issues have been reported so far.
