TOKYO Feb 23 Nissan Motor Co
said on Wednesday it would recall about 250,000 Juke, Infiniti
M, March and other models globally to fix a mechanical glitch in
the fuel rail of direct injection engines that could lead to a
fuel leak in extreme cases.
No accident or injury has been reported due to the fault, a
Nissan spokesman said.
Subject to the recalls are some Juke crossovers produced in
Britain, Tiida subcompact cars made in China, March/Micra
hatchbacks made in India, as well as Serena minivans and the
Infiniti M and QX models produced in Japan between August 2009
and January 2012. About 93,000 of the recalls are in Japan.
Nissan said the fuel rail pressure sensor on certain
vehicles could be tightened insufficiently to the fuel rail of
the engines and could gradually loosen. The company did not
disclose an estimate of the cost of the recalls.
