Nissan has joined the growing list of automakers issuing vehicle recalls this year.
The Japanese car company is recalling just over 165,000 vehicles across a range of makes and models. Owners in both the U.S. and Canada are affected.
The issue concerns key-ignition switches that could wear out over time, and which in extreme cases could cause the engine to shut off while the vehicle is in motion, Nissan confirmed to Consumer Reports. It added that if that happens, the resulting disorientation experienced by the driver could lead to an accident. Even more worrying, the problem could potentially deactivate the car’s air bags, leaving the vehicle’s occupants with little protection in the event of a crash.
