Nissan says it might have to replace as many as 211 recently-manufactured Leaf battery cars because of missing welds. The recall is because a key front structural component might not have been completely welded into place on cars made between Feb. 28 and March 12. Nissan told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that would weaken the front and make it less able to protect the car’s occupants in a crash. Nissan and NHTSA say the missing welds not only cause the cars to violate federal occupant protection standards, they also mean the cars break the rules about preventing battery fluid spillage and electrical shock.
