Nissan North America is recalling 218,019 Nissan Versa cars in the 2007-2012 model years because road salt-related corrosion may cause the front coil springs to fracture, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

This condition could lead to tire puncturing, NHTSA said, which increases the risk of a crash.

The recall affects cars manufactured from May 8, 2006, to Nov. 12, 2012, that were sold or ever registered in the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Nissan dealers will replace both front coil springs, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by mid-November. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
