There are concerns an issue with the fuel tanks fitted to the current series Nissan Pathfinder may have a fault that could lead to a fuel leak.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is now overseeing a recall of some R52 Nissan Pathfinder SUVs sold in Australia.
All of the affected vehicles carry a VIN within this range – 5N1AR2M**FC724615 to 5N1AR2M**FC724817 (not all VINs in this range are affected).
The ACCC recall notice advising that the fuel tank wall thickness may be below the design specification.
In rare instances during a crash, this condition could lead to fuel leakage.
Once parts availability is confirmed, owners of affected Nissan Pathfinder vehicles will be advised to contact their Nissan Dealer to arrange for the fuel tank and fuel gauge packing to be replaced.
The rectification will be at no cost to owners.
The model has also been affected by issues relating to the CVT.
