Nissan and Infiniti have issued a recall for several of their models because of a possible fuel leak.
A new recall is affecting several models produced by Nissan and Infiniti. According to the Japanese based automaker Nissan, and to its luxury brand Infiniti, the affected models are the Juke, the QX56, XC80, Q70 and M56 as owners of these vehicles will have to take a trip back to the dealerships because of a possible fuel leak, which can cause a fire.
“The fuel pressure sensors may not have been sufficiently tightened during production. As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen with vehicle usage and cause a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could cause a vehicle fire”, says the NHTSA in its official press release.
The affected Nissan Juke is from the 2012-2014 model year and the recall also affects the 2014-2015 Infiniti Q70 and QX80 and the 2012-2013 Infiniti M56 and QX56. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by the company soon and the dealers will be replacing the fuel pressure sensors free of charge. The recall will begin on the 26th of January.
