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

"Nissan has newly found several non-conformities that may have caused inaccurate pass/fail judgments", Nissan said in a press statement.

Several employees admitted to carrying out "improper" tests on brake and other systems before shipment, reported AFP.

Nissan plans to notify authorities of the recall on Thursday, it added.

'We will work hard to regain the trust of the parties concerned, ' Honda told a news conference.

Nissan admitted in July this year to fabrication of data involving auto exhaust emissions tests at five of its domestic plants, affecting 1,171 vehicles. Ghosn and his close aide Greg Kelly, who was arrested along with the former chairman last month, are also expected to be indicted.

The manufacturer was forced to recall more than one million vehicles previous year after admitting staff without proper authorisation had conducted final inspections on some units intended for the domestic market before they were shipped to dealers.

Japanese prosecutors plan to indict Nissan Motor Co. on Monday following the arrest of its former Chairman Carlos Ghosn who allegedly understated his compensation in the automaker's financial reports, investigative sources said Friday.

Sources say Ghosn has denied allegations against him, saying he sees no illegality involved.

Nikkei reported that both Ghosn and Kelly would be charged for allegedly underreporting salaries in five annual reports up to the fiscal year ending in March 2015, as well as facing rearrests over suspected misstatements in financial reports over the next three years.

Ghosn's November 19 arrest in Tokyo shook the business world, where he has always been a highly regarded top executive.
