Nissan is the latest carmaker to issue a recall numbering in the millions as it found a problem with some of its vehicles’ ignition relay system.

While no accident stemming from the vehicle issue has been reported, said Nissan decided to announce the recall of about 2.14 million vehicles as the faulty equipment may cause the engine to stall. Affected vehicles are those manufactured between August 2003 and July 2006, from small cars like the March, Cube and Note to bigger ones like the Tiida sedan, Titan pickup and the Infiniti QX56 SUV.

Of the 2.14 million vehicles affected by the recall, more than 1.5 million were produced in Japan and North America. Europe accounted for 354,000 of the vehicles with the remainder being made either in China or Taiwan.
