Nissan Has Recalled the 2003 Infinity G35
- Nissan Has Recalled the 2003 Infinity G35 because the fuel pump hose
may not have been properly attached.
Number of Units Affected: 18300
Manufactured: 01/2002 - 07/2002
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE FUEL HOSE CONNECTION FOR THE OUTLET OF
THE FUEL PUMP WHICH IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK MAY NOT HAVE BEEN
PROPERLY ATTACHED WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS ASSEMBLED AND COULD COME LOOSE WHILE
DRIVING OR WHEN STARTING THE ENGINE.
IF THE CONNECTION COMES LOOSE WHILE DRIVING, THE ENGINE WILL STOP RUNNING
DUE TO LACK OF FUEL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH. ALSO, IF THE CONNECTION
COMES LOOSE WHILE DRIVING OR ATTEMPTING TO START OR RESTART THE ENGINE, SOME
FUEL WILL DISCHARGE FROM THE FUEL PUMP. IF THIS SHOULD OCCUR IN THE PRESENCE
OF AN EXTERNAL IGNITION SOURCE, A FIRE COULD RESULT.
DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND, IF NECESSARY, PROPERLY ATTACH THE FUEL HOSE TO THE
FUEL PUMP. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN OCTOBER 7, 2002. OWNERS
WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE
DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD
CONTACT INFINITI AT 1-800-662-6200.
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02V245000.
Regarding Auto Recalls

auto recalls before

If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
