Nissan Motor (NSANY) will recall 2.14 million vehicles because of a flawed ignition relay that could create problems with the engine.

About 835,000 units are being recalled in Japan. Another 762,000 units are being recalled in the United States and Canada, combined, Reuters reported. About a dozen different models are affected, including the March/ Micra and the Cube.

The ignition problem could cause engines to stall or fail to restart. No accident has been reported from the defect.

The fix involves replacing the ignition relay and will take less than 25 minutes a vehicle.

The recalled vehicles were made in Japan, the United States, Britain Spain, Taiwan and China between August 2003 and July 2006.

It doesn't matter what you buy anymore, even the so called domestic companies are using their profits to provide jobs in other countries. I buy what I like and screw anyone who doesn't like it.

Buy American ONLY. Even if the car companies are now building their cars in the U.S., we should all buy American cars from American auto makers like Ford, Chevy, Dodge, not Toyota, VW, or Nissan.

Buy american junk, example GM built cars and trucks from 2000 - 05 that after a period of time the instrument gauges and speedometers would be eratic are not work at all. There has been NO RECALL by GM, I've been a diehard Chevy man all of my Life I'm 62 years old and I have bought my last GM product quality has went to Hell and Back.

I am wondering, too, where the defective part was made!!! I do know too many defective or contaminated items have come from China!

A lot of parts are out sourced to China, by US auto makers cheap parts equals poor quality. GM alloy wheels China,Ford Korean Tires. Why shoud we buy American when the auto makers don't, they put profit above quality.

But Nissans are made by non-union workers. How could a thing like this happen.
