On December 9, Nissan announced that it would recall approximately 470,000 SUVs and cars worldwide, as these vehicles may experience oil spills.
According to the documents submitted by Nissan to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this recall involves vehicles from 2012 to 2015. All of the above vehicles adopt the direct injection technology of in-cylinder fuel. The hydraulic pressure sensor is insufficiently tightened during the production process, which may cause oil leakage under high temperature and vibration conditions, increasing the risk of fire.
Of the recalled vehicles, 233,000 are in Japan, 143,000 are in North America, 22,500 are in Europe, and 71,500 are in the Middle East, China, Latin America, Africa and other markets.
A Nissan spokesperson said that no reports of accidents leading to car accidents or casualties have been received.
Models recalled in the US market include the 2012 to 2014 Nissan Juke mini SUV, the 2012 to 2013 Infiniti M56, the Infiniti QX56, and the 2014 to 2015 Infiniti Q70 and QX80. Nissan Serena, Qijun, Tida, Pulsar and Patrol are also recalled in other markets.
Nissan will inform the owner from the end of November this year that the dealer will replace the fuel sensor if necessary.
