The carmaker says it received a report of an accident involving injury, but no deaths have been tied to the issue.

It says in rare cases, the right edge of a driver's shoe might catch on the center console's lower trim panel.

Nissan North America Inc. says it will notify owners and dealers and modify the console trim panel for free.

The company expects to start the recall by mid-October.

It involves Versa sedans made between June 9, 2011, and March 11, 2015, and Versa Note vehicles made between April 23, 2013 and March 11, 2015.
