Nissan Recalls Vehicles for Potential Fuel Leak

2012 Infiniti M

Nissan is recalling 79,275 vehicles for a problem with their fuel pressure sensors. These sensors may not have been tightened properly. “As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration causing fuel to leak,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

If fuel leaks, it increases the chance of a fire. Affected vehicles include the 2011 and 2012 Nissan Juke crossover, Infiniti M luxury large sedan and Infiniti QX luxury large SUV.

If you own one of the affected vehicles, Nissan and Infiniti dealers will contact you in mid-March to bring your vehicle into the dealership. The fuel pressure sensors will be replaced free of charge, if necessary. If you have any questions, you can call Nissan at 1-615-725-1000 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236. You can also visit NHTSA’s website at Safercar.gov for more information.
