Due to insufficient coating on the fuel filler tube, Nissan is recalling 372,250 Pathfinders and Infiniti QX4's. The model years in question are 1997-2001, and it's mainly for vehicles in the Northeast where there are large amounts of road salt in the winter.

According to the NHTSA, if an opening develops at the lower mounting bracket of the metal fuel filler tube, the salt and water can corrode the it. If that gets so bad that holes develop in the tube, gas will leak from the vehicle and become a fire hazard.

The recall begins on November 26 and applies to vehicles sold or registered in these states: Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Nissan dealers will replace the assembly. Owners can call Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
