Nissan is recalling nearly 540,000 vehicles because of brake pin and/or fuel gauge problems, the Japanese automaker announced Wednesday.

The recall affects six Nissan models (Titan, Armada, Frontier, Pathfinder, Quest, and Xterra) and one Infiniti model (the QX56). (Click on the chart for specific model years.) The lion's share of the vehicles were sold in the United States.

The brake problem involves a pin in the pedal that can become dislodged, causing a loss of braking. Nissan knows of three instances where it happened (two in the Middle East, one in the US), according to company spokesman Fred Standish.

After getting the first report of the problem in December, Nissan inspected more than 6,000 vehicles and found no defect, Mr. Standish says.
