Japanese carmaker Nissan voluntarily recalled two models of its luxury sedan Infiniti for faulty accelerator sensor that that could cause troubles in gaining speed, Seoul's transportation authorities said Monday.
Voluntary recall would be made on 2,030 units of the Infiniti M35 model and 171 units of the Infiniti M45 that were manufactured between Nov. 8, 2004 and April 19, 2010, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
