Nissan says the 2005-2008 Infiniti FX35 and FX45, 2003-2004 Infiniti I30 and I35, 2006-2010 Infiniti M35 and M45 and 2007-2011 Nissan Versa vehicles are recalled if originally sold or ever registered in zone A.

If your steering feels loose, just wait until you come to a stop and the steering column separates entirely. According to Nissan, a manufacturing problem with the outer tube in the steering column is responsible for a recall of 17,000 vehicles.
