Nissan Recalls 80,000 Muranos, Maximas
Nissan has recalled 70,000 Murano SUVs and 10,000 Maxima sedans built between 2004 and 2006 due to a defective ignition key. Only models with — don’t laugh — Nissan’s “intelligent” keys are affected. These vehicles sometimes won’t start properly, or will start just by moving the steering wheel before the ignition is turned on. That probably surprised a Murano owner or two on their way to work. No injuries have been reported and there’s no word on how Nissan will fix the problem. Owners should check with their local dealer to schedule service.
