Nissan Micra is one of least entertained small cars in the hatchback segment and Nissan would have never expected this. To make the project more profitable the company started exporting Micra to other markets but lately the same has attracted attention for the wrong reason.
The Japanese major has recalled 249,522 cars globally including 7 models of which 9,600 units are of India made Micras. The company has recalled diesel engine models only as the fault lies in the fuel rail of these direct injection units and the faulty sensor. The problem, which could rise in extreme cases, is of fuel leakage through the rail which the company is addressing to via the recall.

One of the Nissan Motors spokesperson said,
“This global recall includes about 9,600 units of India-built Micras that were sold in Europe. There are no issues in other units. The recall programme won’t have any impact on Micras sold in India as the specifications are totally different for export markets.”
In the year 2010, Nissan recalled Micra for the first time for a minor technical issue related to noise arising at the time of starting the engine in extreme cold weather. This is the second time Micra has been recalled but this is to keep in mind that it is for the betterment of the brand. As of last month, the company has exported 136,000 units of Micra to international markets like Africa, Europe, and West Asia.
