Nissan is recalling 372 250 SUVs

Nissan recalled 372,250 of Nissan Pathfinder and the Infiniti QX4 SUVs. This recall covers autos made from 1997-2001 and is due to a damaged fuel filler assembly tube that could unleash a fire. Cars in portions of the country using road salt during the winter are inclined to have this problem.

`This could result in an opening in the coating which can allow water to enter and make contact with the bare metal of the tube` said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. `If a mixture of snow/water and salt makes contact with the bare metal, corrosion may occur to a degree which results in perforation of the tube. In this case, fuel leakage may occur when filling the tank. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire`.
