Nissan recalls 908,900 vehicles for sensor problem

TOKYO — Nissan Motor Co. recalled 908,900 vehicles around the world Thursday for defective accelerator sensors that could cause the engine to stall.

The recall affects the Serena minivan, Infiniti M luxury model, X-trail sport utility vehicle and other models, the automaker said. No accidents have been reported related to the problem.

Most of the vehicles being recalled are in Japan. Others are in North America, Europe and Oceania, Yokohama-based Nissan said.

Sensors, manufactured in Japan, can malfunction, causing the vehicle to slow down and at times stop, it said.
