Nissan has announced a global recall of around 470,000 vehicles to check for possible fuel leaks.

According to Reuters, vehicles made for 2012 to 2015 model years may have fuel pressure sensors not properly tightened during production which can result in a fuel leak.

In the US, vehicles affected by the recall are 2014-2015 Infiniti Q70 and QX80; 2012-2013 Infiniti M56 and QX56; and 2012-2014 Nissan Juke.

Models affected in other markets include the Nissan Pulsar, Tiida, Patrol, X-Trail and Serena.

Of the affected vehicles, around 22,500 are in Europe, 143,000 in North America, 233,000 in Japan, and 71,500 in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, China and other markets.

Dealers will replace the fuel sensors in affected vehicles free of cost.
