79,000 M, QX, And Juke Models Recalled

If you happen to be one of the 79,275 people that just bought a new Infiniti M sedan, QX sport-ute, or spunky little Nissan Juke, you may just want to turn those cars right back around and head for the dealership you just came from. 

It seems that the fuel pressure sensor on nearly 80,000 cars may not have been tightened enough. Due to heat and vibration the sensor may, and will likely endure, there is a pretty decent chance it may come loose, causing a fuel leak. Needless to say, no one really wants fuel leaking into their brand new car's engine compartment. Nissan has said they will replace the sensors for free, and will begin contacting owners March 19th, but owners can (and really should) contact Nissan as soon as possible at 615-725-1000 to schedule an appointment to make their M, QX, or Juke a little more fireproof.

Summary:

Nissan is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Juke, Infiniti QX and Infiniti M vehicles. The fuel pressure sensors may not have been tightened to the correct specification. As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration causing fuel to leak.

Consequence:

Fuel may leak from the pressure sensor, increasing the risk of a fire.

Remedy:

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensors, as necessary, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on March 19, 2012. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 615-725-1000.

Notes:

Customers may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
