Nissan recalls 470K vehicles for fuel leak problem

Posted: Updated:
 Nissan is recalling about 470,000 cars and SUVs worldwide to fix a problem that can cause fuel leaks.

In the U.S., the recall covers about 134,000 vehicles with direct fuel injection engines. That includes Nissan's Juke SUV from the 2012 through 2014 model years, and the Infiniti M56 and QX56 from 2012 and 2013. Also affected are Infiniti QX70 and QX80 SUVs from 2014 and 2015.

Documents posted by U.S. safety regulators say a fuel pressure sensor may not have been tightened properly in production. That can cause a gas leak and fire, but Nissan says no fires or injuries have been reported to the company.

In the U.S., owners will be notified by mail in January, and dealers will tighten the sensors to fix the problem.

Some of the same vehicles were recalled in the U.S. in 2012 for the same problem. Nissan says if they were repaired, they are not covered by the latest recall.
