Nissan Recalls 28,000 Jukes!

All it takes is one bad weld. Yup, thanks to a defective weld on the Juke's boost sensor bracket, the bracket may detach itself from its perch, and as you could imagine -- cause quite a bit of destruction, especially if the car is in motion. Besides coming separated from the engine, Nissan has also said the defect could cause the engine could stall with no warning whatsoever, again causing some serious issues. The defect has affected 28,294 Juke models built between April 9th and May 12th 2011 according to Nissan. Owners will be notified beginning January 9, 2012 and the fix will be done free of charge.

Read on for the full report from Safercar.gov ...
