Nissan recalls cars after steering wheel comes loose


Nissan has recalled 51,000 cars after a steering wheel came loose in a driver’s hands while the vehicle was on the road.

The recall affects Nissan’s Qashqai, Qashqai+2 and Nissan NV200 models.

The incident happened in the Finnish capital, Helsinki.

Finnish vehicle safety inspector Tuomas Peltokangas said: “It is important that Nissan investigates what happened to discover if it is an isolated incident or a wider problem and then up-date us with the results. If it affects many cars they all must be inspected.”

Nissan said they have discovered a potential defect resulting from an “altered manufacturing process” at a unnamed supplier.

The recall covers Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Australasia.
