Nissan is recalling 79,275 vehicles for a problem with their fuel pressure sensors. These sensors may not have been tightened properly. “As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration causing fuel to leak,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.
If you own one of the affected vehicles, Nissan and Infiniti dealers will contact you in mid-March to bring your vehicle into the dealership. The fuel pressure sensors will be replaced free of charge, if necessary. If you have any questions, you can call Nissan at 1-615-725-1000 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236. You can also visit NHTSA’s website at Safercar.gov for more information.
