TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Nissan Motor Co. said Thursday it will recall 18,010 NV350 Caravan wagons and 440 Como vans supplied to and sold by Isuzu Motors Ltd.
In a report filed with Japan's transport ministry, the automaker said compressed air induction pipes in the vehicles may detach due to vibration from diesel turbo engines, potentially making it impossible for the vehicles to accelerate or causing engines to stall.
Subject to the recall are NV350 Caravan wagons produced between June 2012 and October 2013, and Isuzu Como vans built between August 2012 and October 2013.
Nissan will replace connector parts in the vehicles with improved ones.
A total of 67 cases related to the problem have been reported, though none involved in an accident, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
