Nissan Motor Company is to recall 150,000 vehicles in addition to the more than one million recalled since October in Japan.

The recall of the vehicles is due to improper final inspections before they were shipped from two Japanese manufacturing plants.

“Nissan has newly found several non-conformity that may have caused inaccurate pass and fail judgments,” the carmaker said in a press statement on Friday.

The latest “non-conformity” involved inspections of brakes steer wheels, speed measurements and vehicle stability, the company said.

Nissan has already revealed several other cases of improper inspections over the past year.

The automaker had said in July that sample testing for emissions and fuel economy in final inspections at most of its factories in Japan did not meet domestic standards.

Since October last year, Nissan has recalled more than 1 million vehicles in Japan because of improper inspections.
