Nissan Recalls 34,000 Vehicles in the US for Leaking Fuel

Nissan has recalled around 470,000 vehicles worldwide for a possible fuel pressure sensor issue that can lead to leaking fuel and an increased risk of fire.

The automaker is not aware of any injuries or fires in connection with the recall.

Affecting mostly vehicles built between November 2011 and November 2014, the recall affects Nissan and Infiniti models in Japan, North America, Europe, the Middle East, China, Latin America, Africa and other markets, according to the Associated Press.

The campaign in the United States calls for repairs on around 34,000 vehicles equipped with direct fuel injection engines. Affected models include Nissan's Juke sport utility vehicle from 2012-'14; the Infiniti M56 and QX56 from 2012 and 2013; and the Infiniti QX70 and QX80 SUVs from 2014 and 2015.

The questionable fuel pressure sensor may not have been tightened enough during manufacturing and can lead to gas leaks, increasing the risk of fire.  

American owners will receive notifications by mail in January informing them of the recall, which will involve a fix where dealers tighten the affected fuel sensors. A 2012 recall in the U.S. for the same issue affected some of the same vehicles; those that have previously been repaired are not included in the latest campaign, according to Nissan.
