TOKYO -- Nissan, the Japanese automaker under scrutiny after its former chairman Carlos Ghosn was arrested on suspicion of financial misconduct, is recalling 150,000 vehicles spanning 11 models in Japan for dubious inspections for brakes and steering.

Nissan Motor Co. Corporate Vice-President Seiji Honda told reporters Friday that a recall will be issued next week, and measures will be taken to prevent a recurrence.
