NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Nissan North America is recalling 102,095 2006-'10 Infiniti M cars in the U.S. and Canada because a defect in an accelerator sensor could cause the engine to stall, the company told Edmunds on Thursday.

"On some vehicles, an accelerator pedal sensor may cause the vehicle to go into a fail-safe or limp home mode when the pedal is pushed to the right while being depressed," Nissan North America said in a statement. "In rare instances, this may cause the engine to stop running while idling or coming to a stop. In these instances, the vehicle can restart." The cars were manufactured between August 2004 and January 2010.

No information about the Infiniti M recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S.

The action is part of a Nissan global recall of approximately 908,900 vehicles.

"No other North American market Nissans or Infiniti models (are) involved," wrote Steve Yaeger, a Nissan spokesman, in response to an e-mailed message. "No accidents or injuries have been reported (related to the recall)."

In Japan, the recall affects several models, including the Nissan X-Trail.

Infiniti dealers will replace the accelerator pedal assembly and reprogram the engine control module or ECM. The recall is expected to begin in early November. Owners can contact Nissan at (800) 647-7261.

Edmunds says: Infiniti dealers are waiting for parts, which is why there is a delay in the start of this recall.
