Nissan recalls 300,000 Versa, Versa Note vehicles to adjust possible braking impediment

Nissan is recalling nearly 300,000 of its Versa and Versa Note vehicles to adjust a console panel that could catch the driver's shoe and slow braking efforts.

The carmaker said it received a report of an accident involving injury, but no deaths have been tied to the issue.

It said in a report filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that in rare cases, the right edge of a driver's shoe might catch on the centre console's lower trim panel.

Nissan North America Inc. said owners of vehicles affected by this recall have already been notified, and those who have not had the issue addressed will get a recall letter. Dealers will trim the console panel so that its leading edge is farther from the driver's foot. The fix will be done free of charge.

The recall involves four-door Versa sedans from the model years 2012 to 2015 that were made between June 9, 2011, and March 11, 2015, and 2014 and 2015 Versa Note hatchbacks made between April 23, 2013 and March 11, 2015.
