Nissan and BMW are recalling more than 94,000 vehicles because the fuel pumps can fail and cause stalling.
The recalls cover 76,000 Nissan Rogues from the 2014 model year and another 18,000 BMW 2, 3 and 4 series models from 2014 and some 4 series cars from 2015.
Both automakers say in documents that improper nickel plating inside the pump can cause them to fail. That can cause engines to stall and increase the risk of a crash. Both companies used pumps made Robert Bosch. Nissan will notify owners in May; BMW will start in late April. Neither reported any crashes or injuries.
Also, a La. woman’s injury from an exploding air bag has led to Nissan adding 45,000 cars to a previous recall. The added recall covers Sentra compact cars from the 2004-06 model years in high-humidity states mainly along the Gulf Coast.

Volkswagen is recalling nearly 21,000 minivans a second time to fix faulty ignition switches that can cause the vans to stall.
The recall covers about 18,500 Routan minivans from the 2009 model year and another 2,200 from 2010. All were made for VW by Fiat Chrysler.
The switches can slip out of the run position, shutting off the engines, knocking out power steering and brakes and disabling air bags. The same vans were recalled last year but safety regulators determined the fix wasn’t adequate.
Dealers will replace the whole ignition switch.
Last month, Chrysler recalled about 703,000 minivans from 2008 to 2010 for the same problem.
