Nissan North American is recalling about 8,120 Infiniti M45 luxury sedans, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The safety agency says the 2003-2004 model years of the Infiniti M cars have a flaw that causes the gas gauge to display a higher fuel level than the amount of gas actually in the vehicle's fuel tank.
NHTSA first investigated the problem with the Infiniti M45's fuel gauge last December. And according to the latest report from NHTSA, they traced the issue to a faulty circuit board used in Infinti M45 sedans made from March 2002 through June 2004.
Nissan is expected to begin notifying customers affected by this recall in mid-April. Owners will be instructed to bring their recalled Infiniti M45 cars to local dealerships where mechanics will modify the fuel system's circuit board for free.
