WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 133,592 2012-'14 Nissan Juke, 2012-'13 Infiniti M56, QX56 and 2014-'15 Infiniti Q70 vehicles because a fuel leak could lead to a fire risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A stop-sale order has been issued to Nissan and Infiniti dealers.
"The fuel pressure sensors may not have been sufficiently tightened during production," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen with vehicle usage and cause a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could cause a vehicle fire."
The automaker told NHTSA that there are no injuries or fatalities linked to the recall.
Nissan and Infiniti dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensors. The recall is expected to begin on or before January 26.
Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or Infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.
Edmunds says: This recall will not begin for several weeks. If you have any concerns in the meantime, contact your dealer.
