Nissan recalls over 20,000 X-Trail SUVs in Canada

By ,

Nissan Canada is recalling 22,245 X-Trail SUVs from the 2005-2006 model years due to a newly discovered rust issue.

On certain vehicles, the fuel filler pipe could corrode and become perforated, allowing fuel to spill onto the ground while refuelling the X-Trail or shortly thereafter. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.

Nissan dealers will therefore replace the fuel filler pipe.
