Nissan Expands Recall of 2014 Nissan Rogue for Possible Fuel-Pump Failure

WASHINGTON Nissan North America is expanding a recall of 2014 Nissan Rogue SUVs for possible fuel-pump failure, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Nissan is adding another 46,671 vehicles to the recall. The automaker recalled 76,242 Rogues in April 2015.

"Improper nickel plating of components within the fuel pump may result in the fuel pump failing," NHTSA said in its recall summary. "If the fuel pump fails, the vehicle may stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash."

A Nissan spokesman did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any injuries, crashes or fatalities linked to the expanded recall.

"With this action, Nissan will remedy the entire population of 2014 Rogue vehicles manufactured from start of production to June 7, 2014," Nissan said in a document filed with federal safety regulators.

Rogues built after June 7, 2014 are equipped with fuel pumps that contain an improved anodized aluminum coating.

Nissan dealers will replace the fuel pump. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment. Those with an immediate concern should contact their dealer for the most up-to-date information.
