WASHINGTON — Nissan North America is recalling 76,242 2014 Nissan Rogue SUVs because improper nickel plating of components within the fuel pump may result in fuel-pump failure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"If the fuel pump fails, the vehicle may stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash," NHTSA said in its recall summary.
The affected vehicles were built from June 11, 2013 to June 7, 2014.
Nissan told federal safety regulators it is not aware of any crashes linked to the recall.
The company said no other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles are affected.
"Even if the engine stops running, the 12V power remains on, the airbag system remains fully functional and the vehicle can be brought to a controlled stop," Nissan said in a document filed with NHTSA. "However, the engine stop may increase the risk of a crash."
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should schedule a service appointment with their dealer once they receive their official recall notice.
