(Nissan recall's impact on the company's stock Wednesday included in this update.)
is recalling about 540,000 vehicles sold mainly in the U.S. to fix possible problems with brake pedals and fuel gauges.
Nissan said a brake-pin recall affects certain Nissan Titan pickups, Infiniti QX56, Nissan Armada Sports Utility Vehicles and Nissan Quest minivans from 2008 to 2010.
Nissan said the brake pins can partially come loose and cause a loss of "normal braking ability."
Nissan also said it would fix faulty fuel gauges in Titans, Armadas and QX56s from 2005-2008, as well as certain Frontier pickups and Pathfinder and Xterra SUVs.Nissan shares were shedding 14 cents or 0.9%, to $15.86 in recent trading.
Nissan's recall follows the much grander recall of 8 million vehicles by Japan's No. 1 automaker
for sticking gas pedals and other problems.
Nissan said no injuries or accidents were reported related to the recalls.
