Nissan has issued a recall of more than 800,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada after engine issues were reported.
The impacted models include Nissan Rogues made in 2014 through 2020 and Rogue Sports made between 2017 and 2022.
The issue lies in the jackknife folding key. The automaker said that when it is partially opened and inserted into the ignition, a driver can inadvertently hit the key fob and shut the engine off. A loss of power, non-functioning breaks, and airbags not deploying then would be possible, according to Nissan.
"Over time the internal pivot of the jackknife key may weaken and the key could unlock and rotate downwards," the company said in its voluntary recall notice.
Nissan does not yet have a fix for the problem. This month, the automaker will send out letters to customers informing them that no other object should be attached to the key fob. They will receive a second notice to receive repairs once a remedy for the problem has been found.
So far, no incidents as a result of the key problem have not been reported.
