Nissan recalls 768k vehicles over hood latch, moisture issues

The hood latch issue is also potentially dangerous, but affects less vehicles than the moisture problem.

And yet the car maker and the space agency have struck up a deal that will see the two working together on autonomous drive vehicles, the current holy grail in automotive technology. The exchange of technologies and ideas is aimed to help both organizations, but Nissan will be the first to show the fruits of that partnership before the year ends.

Nissan recalls 470k vehicles over potential fuel issue

Nissan has announced plans to recall approximately 470,000 vehicles across the globe due to fuel pressure sensors that mightn't have been tightened adequately.

Nissan put a car in a massive Zorb and pushed it down a hill

Nissan put a car in a massive Zorb and pushed it down a hill

Normally, the Nissan Note is a small, reliable city car, and not prone to rolling down hills. Nissan clearly decided that simply wasn't good enough, and so constructed a vast inflatable Zorb ball so as to capture a Note and then send it tumbling. Worry not, though: it's all in the name of demonstrating the car's safety features, which Nissan has dubbed "Safety Shield."
