The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall which will affect the 2011 – 2012 Nissan Juke, Infiniti M and QX models because of a possible fuel leak.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, owners of the 2011 – 2012 Nissan Juke and Infiniti M and QX vehicles will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a possible fuel leak which might increase the risk of a fire. The NHTSA is saying that the fuel-pressure sensors might not have been tightened and if ignored, this problem may lead to a fire or a crash.
“The fuel-pressure sensors may not have been tightened to the correct specification. The fuel-pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration causing fuel to leak. Fuel may leak from the pressure sensor, increasing the risk of a fire”, as the NHTSA is saying in its recalls summary of the problem.
The NHTSA didn’t receive any report of a crash or injury as a result of this issue and no other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles are affected by the problem except for the ones mentioned above. Nissan says that 79,275 units of the Juke, Infiniti M and QX model will have to be taken back to the dealers. The recall will begin on March the 19th. Owners can contact Nissan at (615) 725-1000.
