Nissan is recalling around 7,000 Qashqais in the UK after it discovered a fault that could result in drivers losing control of the steering. Steering wheels will need to be replaced after a incident of one coming away from its mounting in an incident in Finland.
Nissan is advising owners of all Qashqai and Qashqai+2 models made between February 27 and May 16 to contact their dealer for a free replacement.
The Qashqai is manufactured at Nissan’s Sunderland plant, and it's the best-selling car made in the UK.
Around 48,000 cars are to be recalled worldwide, including the UK-built Qashqai and the NV200 van, built in Spain.
