Nissan has issued a recall for around 12,000 units of its cars in India, including the mid-size sedan Sunny and Micra hatchback, to rectify faulty engine switches and airbags.The recall will cover Nissan models manufactured between June 2013 and March 2015. 

The recall is part of its worldwide campaign and the Japanese carmaker has announced a recall of 270,000 cars globally.

“Nissan is conducting a voluntary recall campaign for about 2,70,000 vehicles on the certain models, including 12,000 vehicles in India,” according to a company spokesperson. Authorized Nissan retailers will rectify the defective engine switch at no extra cost, the spokesperson said.

Some dealers we spoke to said that corrective measures would be taken to fix airbags on some models. The Nissan spokesperson, however, did not mention what the signs of malfunction were. “Nissan is committed to a high level of customer safety, service, and satisfaction and is working with its dealers to promptly address this issue,” the company spokesperson further added.
