133,592 Nissan Juke, Infiniti M56, QX56, Q70, QX80 Models Recalled For Potential Fire Hazard

December 9, 2014

Nissan has expanded a 2012 recall of the Nissan Juke, Infiniti M, and Infiniti Q to include more than 130,000 late-model versions of those vehicles. According to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (PDF), the recall is meant to fix a flaw in the vehicles' fuel system that could lead to a fire.

The problem with these Nissan and Infiniti cars and SUVs stems from an issue with the fuel pressure sensor, which may not have been properly tightened during the manufacturing process. That can cause the sensor to loosen over time, leading to a fuel leak -- and any time there's a fuel leak, there's an increased risk of fire.

The recall includes the following makes and models:

  • 2012-2014 Nissan Juke
  • 2012-2013 Infiniti M56
  • 2012-2013 Infiniti QX56
  • 2014-2015 Infiniti Q70
  • 2014-2015 Infiniti QX80 

All told, 133,592 U.S. vehicles are affected.

Nissan says that it will begin notifying owners of the recall no later than January 26, 2015. At that time, owners will be able to take their vehicles to a Nissan or Infiniti dealer, who will replace the fuel pressure sensor free of charge.
