Brake issue causes Nissan recall

Nissan, Japan’s third-biggest car maker, will recall about 540,000 vehicles worldwide due to potential defects in brake pedal pins and fuel-gauge components, mostly in the US. Nissan said five different 2008-2010 models, including the Titan truck and Armada SUV, would be recalled due to the risk of the brake pedal pins partially disengaging, causing a loss of normal braking ability. More vehicles were also recalled for a separate problem with the fuel gauge, which can at higher mileage levels fail to accurately indicate how much fuel is left in the tank. Nissan said no accidents or injuries have been reported.
