Recall Alert: 2009-2010 Nissan Cube

Nissan is recalling 46,000 Cube compact cars from the 2009 and 2010 model years because of excessive fuel leakage after a rear crash test, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Any fuel escaping from a vehicle can lead to a fire. The company is recalling Cubes built from Jan. 30, 2009, to July 30, 2010. Dealers will attach a special protector to the gasoline recirculation tube, which will prevent leakage.

The recall will begin on or before Aug. 30. Owners will be contacted via mail. For more information, owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.

This is reminiscent of the Ford Pinto defect that led to one of the first and largest vehicle recalls in US history.

Driving in your car with your kids can prove to be an experience that could leave you and your cars interior very much exhausted. In fact, children can be quite clumsy that anything they hold could be found on the floor or out of their hands in just the blink of an eye.

But i don't think is there any problem in this recalling, rather than i think after this recalling the Cube will be come up with more error free. Isn't it guys?

Established in 2001 as the first overseas base for Nissan Techno which plays a major role in the Nissan Group R & D organization. But because of excessive fuel leakage after a rear crash test, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Any fuel escaping from a vehicle can lead to a fire. So need to prefer this model. We have to say good bye to this boxed car. LOL...
