Infiniti M45 Recall
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Mar 15, 2012 in Defective Products
Nissan is recalling over 8,000 of its 2003 and 2004 Infiniti M45 sedans due to an issue with the fuel gauge. The fuel gauge can say full, even if the car is running on fumes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says the issue stems from a bad circuit board that causes the gas gauge to read wrong and let the driver unexpectedly run out of gas, causing the driver to be at risk of a car crash. The NHTSA has received 43 complaints of wrong fuel gauge readings, including 26 where the car ran out of gas even though the gauge says full.
According to USA Today, Infiniti owners affected by the recall will be notified next month. Owners will be able to have the faulty circuit board fixed at the dealership.
