Nissan is recalling thousands of SUVs and cars nationwide.

The automaker said they're issuing the recall because of an ignition key defect. Nissan also said the lock device of the ignition key is not appropriately attached and doesn't lock when the engine is turned off.

In North America, the recall affects 70,000 Murano SUVs and 10,000 Maxima Sedans.

No injuries have been reported
