NEW DELHI: Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor India has recalled 22,188 of its Micra hatchback and Sunny sedan produced at its Chennai plant to replace the master brake cylinder.

Nissan India would carry out the replacement of the faulty component free of charge and has informed its dealers on the same. "Nissan plans to begin notifying individual customers in May. Nissan dealers will replace the master brake cylinder at no cost to the customer. Nissan is committed to a high level of customer safety, service and satisfaction and is working with its dealers to promptly address this issue," the company said in a statement.

Nissan India also said that no accidents, injuries or deaths have been reported so far and the company is undertaking the voluntary exercise to maintain high level of customer safety and service. The company has recalled a total of 67,089 Micra and Sunny vehicles covering its market in Africa, Asia and Europe that were also impacted by the same faulty brake cylinder.

The Japanese carmaker has also globally recalled nearly 2.5 lakh units, but said that recall is not part of the India exercise and pertains to the fuel rail pressure sensor used in direct injection type engines of some of its models. Though this global recall includes 9,600 units of its small car Micra, being manufactured at its Oragadam plant near Chennai in Tamil Nadu and was sold in Europe.

Nissan, which plans to roll out its low-cost brand Datsun in India next year, had earlier announced a bigger recall affecting 841,000 cars worldwide due to a glitch with the steering wheels. The models: March(K12) and Cube(Z11) produced in Japan and Micra(K12) vehicles produced in UK had been sold in Japan, Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, Latin America and Middle East and would have to undergo a tightening of the steering wheel fixing bolt to the correct torque. The company said that repair would take about 40 minutes.

The company said. "This will not effect India and the vehicles are not manufactured in India."

I think so far only Japanese manufacturers have shown the courage to recall their cars from the customers. Unlike Toyota/Honda/Nissan....I dont think this is a common news in India

@amg

Exactly my concern , both are hand in glove and sure would be partners in crime.

@sstar

Its only now these people have started selling cars in huge numbers in india, recalls happen when you actually sell something, earlier they hardly sold anything , whereas now they have a reputation on stake.

Not agreed to an extent....because Japanese have always been favourite in Indian market and I dont remember any Japanese who has not done well in last 1 decade or so (against their targets).

But you are right...their reputation is on stake because of heated competition in market these days and on top of it...market is going through slump.

So no Renault developed this problem up until now, Renault were clueless about the problem , only when Nissan recalled they woke up to a recall.

Any Renault owners on the board who could verify these claims, i smell a cover up.

I dont buy this ,Now they say its a preemptive move to save skin.
