Japanese car maker Nissan says it will recall more than two million vehicles around the world due to a faulty ignition system.
The company says there is a flaw in the ignition relay that may cause the engine to stall while running and make it unable to restart.
The recall involves about 835,000 vehicles sold in Japan, 762,000 in North America, and 354,000 in Europe. The vehicles were built between 2003 and 2006.
Nissan says no accidents have been reported in connection with the problem.
The car maker’s domestic rival, Toyota, has been plagued by a global recall of more than 10 million vehicles over the past year due to a variety of problems, including leakage of brake fluid and unintended acceleration.
