Nissan, Honda recall more than 150,000 vehicles


Nissan and Honda have issued recalls for more than 150,000 vehicles.

Honda is recalling nearly 46,000 Fit Sport cars in the U.S. and Canada to address an issue with the electronic stability control system.

The recall affects cars made in 2012 and 2013.

Honda says the stability control system can let the car tilt too far before it applies the brakes to prevent a crash.

There are no reported crashes or injuries related to the issue at this time.

Nissan is also recalling about 123,000 Altima sedans because of an issue with the spare tire.

The Altimas affected are in the 2013 model year and manufactured between March 21 and March 26.

The spare tire can be significantly over- or underinflated, which can increase the risk of a crash.  

Nissan says it has no reports of accidents or injuries related to the defect, which was discovered by a dealer.
