2011-2012 Nissan Juke, Infiniti M, QX Recalled For Potential Fuel Leak

February 27, 2012

Nissan North America has issued a recall for the Nissan Juke, Infiniti M, and Infiniti QX from model years 2011 and 2012. The problem? A flaw in the fuel system, which could cause a fire.

According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the fuel pressure sensors in the three recalled vehicles may not have been tightened to the proper specifications. Over time, the sensors may loosen, and as a result, they may cause a fuel leak. And any time there's a fuel leak, there's a risk of fire.

According to the NHTSA, 79,275 are included in the recall.

Nissan says that it will begin notifying owners of the recall around March 19. At that time, owners will be able to take their vehicles to a Nissan or Infiniti dealer, who will inspect and replace the fuel pressure sensors as necessary (free of charge, naturally).

If you have questions in the meantime, we encourage you to call Nissan Customer Service at 615-725-1000, or ring the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and ask about recall campaign 12V069000.
