Nissan is recalling 23,903 of its 2019 Altima sedans to fix an improperly installed hose that could lead to a fuel leak, raising the risk of a fire or an engine stall, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Affected vehicles were manufactured from May 25, 2018 through October 30, 2018.
If the hose partly disconnects, the resulting fuel leak could start a fire. If the hose disconnects entirely, it could cut off the fuel supply to the engine and cause a sudden stall, which may lead to a crash.
Nissan says that no crashes or injuries have been reported related to the fuel leak. The automaker also says it became aware of the problem after a customer complained about the smell of fuel.
