Nissan To Recall Serena Minivan, 2 Other Models

Nissan said it will recall a combined 92,679 units of the three models for a sensor that had been insufficiently tightened and could cause a fuel leakage.

TOKYO, Feb. 23 (Kyodo) — Nissan Motor Co. said Thursday it will recall some of the Serena minivan and Juke sport utility vehicles as well as the Landy minivan it has supplied to Suzuki Motor Corp. for sale with the Suzuki badge to fix their fuel pressure sensors.

In a report filed with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Nissan said it will recall a combined 92,679 units of the three models manufactured between September 2010 and December 2011.

The sensor has been insufficiently tightened to the fuel supply rail of the engine and could loosen as a result of engine vibration in some cases, possibly causing a fuel leakage, the ministry said.

Nissan has received reports on six cases of malfunctions stemming from the problem, it added.
