Nissan said Thursday it is recalling 2.14 million vehicles in the US, Japan, Europe and Asia, including the popular March and Mycra subcompacts, for an ignition problem that may stall the engine.

No accidents have been reported that are suspected of being related to the defect, according to Yokohama-based Nissan Motor Co.

A problem was found in an ignition-system part called the relay for vehicles produced from 2003 through 2006, including small cars like the March, Cube and Note, and about a dozen other models, such as the Tiida sedan, Titan pickup and Infiniti QX56 luxury model.

In extreme cases, the engine will stall and won't be able to start, said Nissan spokesman Mitsuru Yonekawa.

Of the recalled vehicles, nearly 835,000 were produced in Japan, 762,000 in North America, and 354,000 in Europe. Nissan, which is allied with Renault SA of France, did not disclose a cost for the recall.
