Nissan Motor Co. said Wednesday it will recall about 540,000 vehicles worldwide, mostly in the United States, due to problems with brake pedal pins and faulty fuel gauges.

No accidents related to the problems have been reported so far, the company said.

For brake pedals, Nissan said the pins can partially disengage and disrupt normal brake functions, a manufacturing error it attributed to the supplier.

The recall affects 2008 through 2010 model year Nissan Titan pickup trucks, Armada and Infiniti QX56 sport utility vehicles and Quest minivans.

The Japanese carmaker also said faulty gas gauges can display an incorrect amount of fuel left in the tank when it is in fact empty.

The models subject to the gas gauge recall are 2005 through 2008 model year Nissan Titan, Armada and Infiniti QX56 as well as Nissan Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra produced between January and March 2006 and between October 2007 and January 2008.

Besides the United States, the recall also affect Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, Ukraine, Russia and Taiwan, Nissan said.

Nissan added all vehicles currently on sale do not have the two problems.
