Nissan recalls 7,400 vehicles in Canada Add to ...

Nissan says it is recalling 7,400 vehicles in Canada to fix possible gasoline leaks.

The automaker is recalling certain Nissan Juke small crossover, Infiniti QX large SUVs and Infiniti M sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years.

It is recalling about 79,000 vehicles in the U.S. and another 7,400 in Canada to inspect, retighten and, if applicable, replace the fuel rail pressure sensor gasket.

Nissan and Infiniti will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles in March.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that fuel pressure sensors on the vehicles may not be tight enough and gasoline could leak and cause a fire. Nissan says no fires have been reported.

Dealers will tighten the sensors or replace gaskets free of charge to take care of the problem.

The vehicles were made between Oct. 5, 2009 and Dec. 27, 2011.

The recall is scheduled to start on March 19. Owners with questions may call Nissan at 615-725-1000.
