03.03.10 | FL News Team

Another vehicle recall has been announced. This time around it's the Japanese automaker Nissan. The company says it's recalling 540-thousand vehicles worldwide over faulty fuel gauges and problems with loose brake pedal pins. The fuel gauge issue can make a driver incorrectly believe there is fuel left in a vehicle that is in fact empty. The models targeted under the gas gauge recall are the 2005-2008 Nissan Titan, Armada and Infiniti QX56. Nissan Pathfinders, Frontiers and Xterras made either between January and March of 2006 or between October 2007 and January of '08 are also included. As for the brake pin problem. Nissan says the pins may become partially disengaged which, in turn, can interfere with normal braking functions. This part of the recall affects model years 2008 through 2010 Titan pickups, Quest minivans and Armada and Infiniti QX56 SUVs. Nissan says it will begin notifying consumers this month about a free fix for both problems.
