Nissan is recalling some 466,000 of its X-Trail worldwide due to a potentially defective fuel inlet pipe. We're not sure how we missed this one (but it could have something to do with the fact that the automaker has kept the compact SUV next door in Canada), but it bears noting for our international readers, as well as for those keeping score in the home version of The Recall Game.

According to Nissan's recall, an 'inappropriate' pipe coating could result in a rusty refueling pipe (primarily in 2000-2004 models), causing a gas leak. Thus far, the automaker has received word of 49 defective pipes, but no injuries have resulted.

Globally, the recall affects about 177,000 European and 142,000 Japanese X-Trails, with the rest being sold elsewhere.
