All the cars sold in Japan by Nissan in the last 3 years will be recalled by the carmaker. If you want to know what has been the issue for this car recall, then you need to know that technically there are no issues, but the final vehicle inspections were not performed by authorized technicians. The final number of the cars being recalled is under 1.2 million. Nissan produced around 560,000 vehicles in Japan last year to North America, Europe and other markets. Spokesman Nick Maxfield said there was no difference in quality between cars made in Japan for the domestic market and those made for export. The recall is the second major misconduct incident involving a Japanese automakerin as many years, after Mitsubishi admitted in April 2016 it had falsified the fuel economy for some of its domestic market models.
