RECALL: Infiniti SUVs to fix gas gauges


DETROIT (WKOW) -- Nissan is recalling about 7,800 Infiniti SUVs because the fuel gauges can show gas in the tank when there isn't any.

The recall involves the JX35 from the 2013 model year. The SUVs were built this year between February 15 and June 22.

Safety officials say a tube inside the gas tank could be in the wrong place. That could prevent a float from dropping as fuel is used, causing an inaccurate reading on the dashboard fuel gauge.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the SUVs could run out of gas unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan says owners will be notified by mail, and repairs are expected to start September 4. The automaker will fix the problem for free.
