Nissan has announced two global recalls involving 604,500 vehicles. One recall is due to a faulty steering shaft and the other involves a battery defect.

Nissan’s first recall covers 303,000 Frontier pickup trucks and 283,000 Xterra SUVs from the 2001-2010 model years. The recall is due to a steering column flaw that can lead to the cracking of the steering shaft, increasing the likelihood of a crash.

Additionally, Nissan is recalling 18,500 Sentra models for a battery flaw. A defected positive cable terminal can make it difficult to start the car or lead to low-speed stalling.

No accidents or injuries have been linked to either recall. Nissans says about 85 percent of the recalled vehicles were sold in the United States.

Nissan was recently forced to recall more than 2 million vehicles for a faulty ignition relay.
