Nissan is recalling 51,100 of its Cube hatchbacks in the United States and Canada because of possible problems with fuel spilling during rear-end collisions. In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan Motor Co., said Monday tests conducted by NHTSA safety regulators found more fueled spilled than federal standards allow.
Nissan said it will issue a voluntary recall. It notified dealers last week and will contact owners on August 20. Dealers will attach a special projector to prevent leaks. There have been no injuries or incidents reported by drivers, according to Nissan. The recall covers model year 2009 and 2010 Cubes made in 2009.
