Nissan recalls new Infiniti G35 And Other Recalls List
DETROIT, Sept 24 Reuters reported that Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. on Tuesday said it will recall its new Infiniti G35 sedan, which just recently went on sale, after a handful of incidents in which the fuel line disconnected, which a federal safety agency said posed the danger of a fire or crash.
Nissan said it will recall 20,300 sedans, including 18,000 sold in the United States and 2,300 sold in Canada.
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said that if the fuel line disconnected, the engine could stop, due to lack of fuel, and a crash or fire could result.
However, Nissan spokesman Eric Booth said the automaker knew of no instances of any accidents, injuries or fires resulting from the fuel line becoming disconnected.
Nissan will mail notices to owners in early October to take their vehicle to a Infiniti dealership, where the fuel line will be checked and tightened if loose, Booth said.
Nissan has developed a strong reputation for vehicle quality over the past few years, but the Japanese automaker slipped in a key U.S. quality study released earlier this year.
Also on Tuesday, German automaker Volkswagen AG recalled 332,950 cars in order to properly mark child seat anchors and amend the owners manual because they failed to comply with federal safety requirements, the NHTSA said. The affected vehicles include the 2000 model year Cabrio, Golf, Jetta and New Beetle, NHTSA said.
