RepairPal Expert Overview
The fuel gauge may indicate more fuel than is actually in the fuel tank. As a result, the vehicle may run out of fuel unexpectedly.
Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning September 4, 2012. There are no symptoms related to this recall. If you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Due to an assembly issue, the fuel transfer tube may be misrouted inside the fuel tank. As a result, the fuel level float may be prevented from dropping as the fuel is consumed and the fuel guage may read a fuel level higher than actually exists. If the fuel gauge does not accurately show when the tank is becoming empty, the vehicle may run out of gas unexpectedly, stalling, and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and re-route the fuel transfer tube and install a new O-ring to correct this concern.
