Recall Alert: Nissan 2016 Titan Diesel XD

RECALL Subject : Fuel Tank Breather Tube Incorrectly Attached

Report Receipt Date: NOV 22, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V847000
Component(s): FUEL SYSTEM, DIESEL
Potential Number of Units Affected: 12,112

Manufacturer: Nissan North America, Inc.



SUMMARY:
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2016 Titan Diesel XD vehicles manufactured August 7, 2015, to September 1, 2016. The affected vehicles may not have had the temporary fuel tank breather tube cap removed during the vehicle's assembly and the fuel tank breather tube may not have been connected to the bed rail. As a result, the fuel tank may not have the proper ventilation, possibly causing the fuel gauge and the distance to empty meter to both display inaccurately.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the fuel gauge reads incorrectly, the vehicle can run out of fuel without the driver being aware, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fuel tank breather tube, replacing the fuel tank, fuel sending unit, and/or fuel tank breather tube, as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
