A voluntary recall of both Nissan and Infiniti vehicles will soon take place for the same issue. The fuel pressure sensor mounted to the tanks of certain Infiniti M and QX models as well as Nissan Jukes may not have been installed properly. Nissan North America is under the assumption that the sensors were not torqued to specification and thus, could cause a fuel leak. Over time, the heat and vibration of daily driving may loosen the unit which would allow fuel to spill, perhaps even leading to a vehicle fire.
So far, approximately 79,275 vehicles are being recalled. The Jukes in question are both 2011 and 2012 model years while the Infiniti QX and M models affected are 2011 and 2012s as well. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Nissan North America is expected to begin notifying owners on March 19 of this year. To remedy the issue, certified dealers will inspect the fuel pressure sensor’s torque specs and if necessary, replace the entire unit at no extra cost to drivers.
