Nissan has confirmed that 7,000 Qashqai vehicles in the UK are being recalled due to a steering wheel fault.
Sky News has confirmed that the vehicles were produced between February 27 and May 16, this year.
Dealers across the UK are contacting owners of the cars in the question.
Nissan UK also confirm that there will be no cost to the drivers for any remedial work.
The vehicles, made in Sunderland, are also exported across the world.
Some 51,000 export vehicles are in the recall, with models affected including the Qashqai, Qashqai+2 and Nissan NV200.
The move comes after a steering wheel of a Qashqai+2 "detached" at slow speed in Finland.
Nissan has ordered the voluntary recall in Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Australasia to address a manufacturing issue.
