Recall Central: Fueling Issues Surround Nissan Cube, Jaguar XF, XK Recalls

Automobile Staff

Fuel system problems are at fault for this week's newest recalls that include Nissan's Cube and Jaguar XFs and XKs powered by JLR's 5.0-liter V-8 engine.

2009-2010 Nissan Cube

The Problem: After the Cube completed a rear-moving barrier crash test, the compact wagon was found to have a problem with "fuel system integrity." Following the test, the Cube rotated (as required) and the amount of fuel leakage was above the allowed limits. Excessive fuel leakage could lead to a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will attach a special protector to the gas recirculation tube at the filler neck connector. The service will begin around the end of August.

Number of Vehicles Affected: 46,000

2010-2011 Jaguar XFs and XKs

The Problem: 2010 XFs and 2010-2011 XKs with the 5.0-liter V-8 engine may have issues with the in-tank electric fuel pump failing to reenergize once the vehicle is restarted. The result could be fuel starvation and stalling. The Fix: Revised software installed by the dealer is the fix for the recall, which will begin around the end of August.

Number of Vehicles Affected: 5048
