Nissan is recalling about 470,000 vehicles worldwide, including 133,000 in the United States, because of possible fuel leaks, the automaker said in a reportposted Tuesday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
The action covers the following models: 2012-14 Nissan Juke crossovers; 2012-13 Infiniti M56 sedans; 2014-15 Infiniti Q70 sedans; 2012-13 Infiniti QX56sport utility vehicles; and 2014-15 Infiniti QX80 S.U.V.s. About 105,000 of the vehicles being recalled in the United States are Juke crossovers.
Nissan said a fuel pressure sensor was not properly installed and could allow “a small amount of fuel” to leak. There were no reports of fires, Steve Yaeger, a spokesman for Nissan, said in an email.
In 2012, Nissan recalled about 79,000 vehicles in the United States, including about 53,600 Jukes from the 2011-12 model years, for the same problem.
The automaker informed the safety agency of the recall on Nov. 26, but it took until Tuesday for the agency to post the report.
