Nissan to recall 2.1 million cars

Car maker Nissan is recalling more than two million cars due to a possible engine fault, the third largest recall ever.

Nissan has confirmed that although most models are being recalled in the US and japan - here nearly 84,000 of the K12 Nissan micra are affected.

All of the micras involved were made in Nissan's Sunderland factory between January 2004 and March 2006.

No accidents have been reported but anyone who believes they own one of the affected cars should take it to their dealer.

Dr Matthias Holweg from Judge Business School told the BBC the recall will prove expensive for Nissan.
