A Nissan Motor GB spokesman said: “Over time, the nut that holds on the steering wheel can become loose.

“Drivers could start notice some wobbling of the wheel and if this is ignored there is the possibility that it could come completely off.”

He went on “There have been a few incidents of steering wheels becoming loose, but there have been no accidents.”
