According to Automotive News, Nissan is recalling certain Micra cars built in the United Kingdom and Japan, as well as locally-produced Cube mini MPVs, both assembled from 2002 through 2006.

While no accidents, injuries or deaths have been reported, Nissan fears that the bolt used in the steering wheels of these cars may not have been properly tightened, which could result in a sudden loss of steering. The vehicles will be fixed by either tightening the bolts or replacing the steering wheel with a new one.

The concerned vehicles have been sold in Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Local market Micras and Cubes will be part of the recall as well.
