Nissan Motor Co. is recalling over 92,000 vehicles for faulty clutch and seat covering problems, the company and the Transport Ministry said Thursday.
Nissan will recall 76,929 cars of Note, Tiida, Cube, Tiida Latio, March and Wingroad models produced between May 2005 and March 2006 and sold in Japan, the transport ministry said in a statement.
A crack may occur in some of the clutches because they are not strong enough and the car may stop in worst cases, it said, adding that there have been 66 cases of reported troubles but no accidents.
Nissan also plans to recall about 420 Tiida vehicles sold in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Mauritius for the same problem, according to company spokeswoman Haruko Wada.
Meanwhile, Nissan will also recall 14,716 March subcompacts produced in September and December 2006 and sold in Japan because some of the covering for front seats are not sturdy enough, the ministry said.
About 520 March subcompacts sold in other countries including Singapore, Mauritius and New Zealand are also subject to recall for the same reason, Wada said.
