Nissan is recalling 2011-12 Infiniti M sedans
built between October 5, 2009 and December 16, 2011, as well as 2011-12 Infiniti QX crossovers built between October 27, 2009 and December 24, 2011. At issue is a fuel pressure sensor that may not have been tightened to the correct specification during the assembly process.
Approximately 2,432 Infiniti M models and 23,261 Infiniti QX
models are affected by this recall, which also extends to an estimated 53,582 Nissan Juke
models assembled between March 8, 2010 and December 27, 2011.
On some of the vehicles built during the referenced time periods, the fuel pressure sensor may not have been torqued to the proper value. As a result, this sensor may loosen over time from heat and vibration. Should this occur, the resulting fuel leak raises the danger of a fire risk.Nissan
will contact owners regarding the recall, which is expected to begin on or about March 19, 2012. Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensors on an as-needed basis at no charge to owners, and consumers with questions or concerns can reach Nissan’s customer service hotline at (615) 725-1000.
Alternatively, those with questions or concerns on this recall can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236.
