BEIJING (Reuters) - Japanese automaker Nissan Motor <7201.T> said on Sunday its sales in China rose 5.1% in September from a year earlier, to 141,595 vehicles.

China's auto market, the world's biggest, is a key focus for the embattled carmaker as it struggles to fix problems stemming from ousted leader Carlos Ghosn's aggressive expansion drive.
