Nissan Recalls 2 Million Cars Worldwide Over Ignition Issues

October continues to be a bad month for the auto industry. Following recalls from Toyota and Honda over braking issues, and BMW because of fuel pump failures, Nissan has announced a massive recall of 2.14 million vehicles for problems with the ignition.

From the AP:

A problem was found in an ignition-system part called the relay for vehicles produced from August 2003 through July 2006, including small cars like the March, Cube and Note, and about a dozen other models, such as the Tiida sedan, Titan pickup and Infiniti QX56 luxury model.

In extreme cases, the engine will stall and won’t be able to start, said Nissan spokesman Mitsuru Yonekawa.

Nissan says the fix for the problem should only require 30 minutes to fix.
