The issue involves the vehicles’ direct injection engine. According to Nissan, a pressure sensor in the engine system may be loose and could lead to a fuel leak into the engine under certain conditions. A spokesperson for the carmaker states no accidents, injuries, or fatalities have resulted in the issue.
The Nissan and Infiniti recalls involve a total of 250,000 vehicles sold worldwide with models years ranging from 2009 through 2012. Most of these vehicles are sold outside the U.S.: besides the Infiniti M, QX, and the Juke, Nissan is also recalling its Nissan Serena minivan; Nissan Patrol SUV; Nissan Tiida sedan; and the Nissan March and Micra compacts.
Nissan has not specified at the time of this post how many U.S. vehicles are affected by the issue. Around 93,000 of the above vehicles are either manufactured and/or sold in Japan alone.
