Nissan is recalling 79,275 model-year 2011 and 2012 versions of the Juke small crossover, Infiniti M sedan and Infiniti QX56 SUV due to a problem with the fuel pressure sensor, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, the sensor may not have been tightened correctly; it could come loose and cause a fuel leak. This may lead to a possible fire and an increased risk of injury.
Nissan will notify owners starting March 19, and dealers will replace the affected fuel pressure sensors free of charge. Owners can call Nissan at 615-725-1000 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
