Front suspension problem: Nissan to recall 218,019 Versa vehicles in US

Nissan Motor Co Ltd would recall 218,019 Versa vehicles in the United States to fix a front suspension problem.

The company has notified the U.S. vehicle safety regulator National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that road salt may corrode the front coil springs, possibly leading to fractures.

Coil spring fractures may puncture the tire and increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan North America is expected to begin the recall of the affected cars, for model years 2007-2012, by mid-November, NHTSA said.

In May, NHTSA had launched a preliminary evaluation of about 130,000 Nissan Versa cars after receiving complaints about fractures in the front suspension coil spring.
