Nissan Motor Company announced a voluntary safety recall of 604,500 units of three vehicle models sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico due to glitches in their power steering systems and batteries.
Eligible for the free repair service are 303,000 units of the Frontier pickup truck, 283,000 units of the Xterra sport-utility vehicle and 18,500 units of the Sentra compact, it said on Thursday.
All of the vehicles were built outside Japan, in countries including the United States and Brazil. None of the vehicles were sold in Japan.
Problems have been found in parts of the Frontier and Xterra that coordinate the handling of the steering wheel with the movements of the wheels on the ground, whereas Sentra cars could be fitted with faulty batteries, according to Nissan.
