Nissan announced yesterday that they will be recalling 470 cars and SUVs, including 133,000 in the United States, to fix a problem that can cause fuel leaks in the vehicles. Primarily associated with direct fuel injection engines, the recall impacts the following models:
- 2012-2014 Nissan Juke SUV
- 2012-2013 Infiniti M56
- 2012-2013 Infiniti QX56
- 2014-2015 Infiniti QX70
- 2014-2015 Infiniti QX80
According to reports from U.S. safety regulators, these vehicles are being recalled because a fuel pressure sensor may not have been tightened properly in production. This, of course, was the course of a similar Nissan recall back in 2012 in which 53,600 Jukes were recalled. Isn’t it strage that a company could make the same mistake over and over?
Anyway, Nissan has said that there have been no reported injuries or fires associated with the recall. Also, for any one that needs their vehicle repaired, Nissan says, “Owners of all potentially affected vehicles will be notified. The dealer will retighten to the proper torque specification.”
