Nissan's luxury arm, Infiniti, is recalling 7,842 model-year 2013 versions of the JX crossover due to problems with the fuel tank, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were built from Feb. 15 to June 22 (you can check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and have a fuel transfer tube that was misrouted in the fuel storage tank during assembly. This could lead to an inaccurate fuel level displayed on the fuel gauge, and the vehicle could stall or run out of gas unexpectedly.
Nissan will notify owners starting Sept. 4, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
