Nissan Fuel Leak Recall – Is Your Nissan on the List?
Nissan Fuel Leak Recall Alert
Nissan Motor Company is issuing a global recall of 470,000 SUV’s and cars for possible fuel leaks. 134,000 of the vehicles being recalled are in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicles are being recalled due to fuel pressure sensors that may have not been fully tightened. This could loosen during vehicle usage, and result in a fuel leak which increases the chance of fire. According to Nissan no fires or injuries have been reported.
The specific models that are being recalled are:
- Nissan Juke SUV’s 2012-2014
- Infiniti M56 and QX56 SUV’s 2012-2013
- Infiniti Q70 Sedans and QX80 SUV’s 2014-2015
To fix the recall, certified Nissan dealerships will tighten the fuel pressure sensor on affected vehicles free of charge. In the United States, owners can expect to be notified by mail in January to bring in their cars. This recall is an expansion of the recall (12V-069) in 2012 for the same problem. If your vehicle was recalled in 2012, then your vehicle already had the repairs needed.
