According to the articles released early today, Nissan is recalling the 2011 model of the Juke sport utility vehicles due to a faulty turbocharger sensor. The company released an announcement stating that 28,000 units of the vehicle must be recalled after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration noticed the bracket could fall into the engine’s air inlet tube leading the car to stall unexpectedly. According to the agency, this issue may increase the risk of an accident.
The affected vehicles are equipped with a turbocharger engine and were manufactured between April 2010 and May 2011. Nissan revealed that owners would be contacted so they can bring their recalled vehicles to authorized dealerships for an inspection. If necessary, the air inlet tube will be replaced at the spot.
The notification will be sent to Juke owners at the beginning of January 2012, according to the official reports.
