DETROIT >> Nissan says it is recalling more than 79,000 vehicles in the U.S. to fix possible gasoline leaks.
The automaker is recalling certain Nissan Juke small crossover SUVs, Infiniti QX large SUVs and Infiniti M sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that fuel pressure sensors on the vehicles may not be tight enough and gasoline could leak and cause a fire. Nissan says no fires have been reported.
Dealers will tighten the sensors or replace gaskets free of charge to take care of the problem.
The vehicles were made between Oct. 5, 2009 and Dec. 27, 2011.
The recall is scheduled to start on March 19. Owners with questions may call Nissan at 615-725-1000.
