Nissan is recalling nearly 300,000 of its Versa and Versa Note vehicles to adjust a console panel that could catch the driver's shoe and slow braking speed.

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. (Tweet This)
