Recall 14V683000

Potential Fuel Leak

Recall Details

The fuel pressure sensor may not have been sufficiently tightened during vehicle production. As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen over time resulting in a fuel leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Nissan / Infiniti dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor as necessary to correct this concern.

Our Quick Take

A fuel leak may develop at the fuel pressure sensor.

What Should You Do?

Nissan will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning January 26, 2015. If you don't receive notification in a timely manner and believe you should have, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call.
