Nissan issues recall on 470K vehicles for fuel leak

DETROIT (WTVM) - Nissan is recalling nearly 470,000 cars and SUV's to fix a problem that can potentially cause fuel leaks.

The recall covers about 134,000 vehicles in the U.S. with direct fuel injection engines.

Models affected are: 2012-20114 Nissan Juke, the 2012-2013 Infiniti M56 and QX56, and the 2014-2015 Infiniti QX70 and QX80 SUV.

According to documents posted by the U.S. safety regulators, a fuel pressure sensor may not have been properly tightened in production. This can cause a gas leak and a fire. Nissan say that no fires or injuries have been reported to the company.

Owners in the U.S. will be notified by mail in January, and dealers will tighten those loose sensors to fix the problem.
