Nissan Motors would be recalling 250,000 cars globally including two models of Infiniti, manufactured between 2009 and 2012, it has been reported.
The recall would be across the spectrum including some Juke crossovers produced in Britain, Tilda made in China and Micra hatchbacks made in India, according to a Reuters report.
The global recall is because of a faulty fuel rail pressure sensor used in the direct injection type engine of these models which may result in decrease in the axial tension over time.
Though it can lead to fuel leakage between the fuel rail pressure sensor and the fuel rail, no accidents have been reported so far, Reuters reported the company spokesperson as saying.
Meanwhile, Infiniti models not equipped with direct injection type engines were not affected since such sensor is not employed in the engines used in these models.
Nissan cars affected in the Recall:
SERENA produced in Japan and fitted with MR20DD engine.
JUKE produced in Japan and UK and fitted with MR16DDT engine.
PATROL produced in Japan and fitted with VK56VD engine.
MICRA produced in India and fitted with HR12DR engine.
TIIDA produced in China and fitted with MR16DDT engine.
Infiniti QX56 produced in Japan and fitted with VK56VD engine.
Infiniti M56 produced in Japan and fitted with VK56VD engine.
A major part of the recall would be in Japan. The company is planning to recall nearly 92,679 cars in its home country itself.
The company did not reveal the cost involved in the massive recall.
