    2011-2012 Nissan Juke Recalled

    Nissan Motor Co. is recalling 79,275 2011-'12 Nissan Juke, Infiniti M and Infiniti QX models. As stated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the reason for that is the improperly installed fuel pressure sensor, what may result in a fuel tank leakage. The faulty Nissan Jukes were manufactured from March 8, 2011 to Dec. 27, 2011. As for Infiniti M sedans, these vehicles were built from Oct. 5, 2009 to Dec. 16, 2011 and the QXs were built from Oct. 27, 2009 to Dec. 24, 2011.

    The first customer complaint was filed in November 3, 2011. The complaint was about fuel odor coming from the cabin of the car. Since Nissan service technicians detected the reason for that (a fuel leak from the high-pressure fuel sensor onto the fuel rail while the engine starts up), an internal investigation was carried out. According to Nissan, vehicle owners will be notified of the recall around March 19 and will be able to take their vehicles to the dealer to get the fuel pressure sensors replaced for free. The last Nissan's recall is actually the third one for the past two weeks. The previous recalls were regarding side curtain airbag problems (Altima and Versa sedans) and CVT transmission faults (Versa sedans).

    As for the 2012 Juke, in spite of the recall, the vehicle has earned solid safety scores and the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. On the other hand, the crossover features a disappointing 23rd in the U.S. News “Best Affordable Small Car” group.

    IIHS Rates Nissan Juke “Top Safety Pick”

    Nissan seems to be on the top these days, at least from the safety point of view. Nissan Juke can boast with the Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS. The IIHS is an independent, nonprofit, scientific organization dedicated to reducing the losses – deaths, injuries, and property damage from crashes on the nation's highways.

    Despite its compact size, Juke was able to demonstrate consistently high performance in each test series. As usual, the rating is given to those vehicles that gain agency’s highest mark in all kinds of impact protection. The first test – front impact with a still obstacle with partial overlap, the second – side impact, the third – an imitation of rear-end collision, and the fourth, recently introduced – the test of roof strength in the simulated rollover.

    Juke's safety systems include: “two-stage” Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS), system LATCH - child safety belts, tire pressure control system, vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and a Traction Control (TCS). “IIHS once again confirmed Nissan's commitment to innovative safety systems”, says IIHS representative. “Nissan Juke combines unexpected design inspired by the motor sport and advanced safety systems.” In the US Nissan Juke comes with the price tag of around 19,000 dollars.
