The automaker is recalling its popular March and Mycra subcompacts for an ignition problem that may stall the engine. A spokesman says in extreme cases, the engine will stall and won't be able to start.
A problem was found in an ignition-system part called the relay. It's in vehicles produced from August 2003 through July 2006. The part is in small cars like the March, Cube and Note, and about a dozen other models, such as the Titan pickup and Infiniti QX56 luxury model.
Of the recalled vehicles, nearly 835,000 were produced in Japan, 762,000 in North America, and 354,000 in Europe.
