Nissan North America is recalling 2011 and 2012 Nissan Juke, Infiniti M and Infiniti QX models over a fuel pressure sensor issue. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it's possible that the sensors weren't tightened properly, which could lead to the sensor coming loose over time and an increased risk of a fire due to leaking fuel.

The recall begins on March 19. Nissan will notify owners, who can take their vehicles to the dealer to be repaired free of charge. A bulletin from NHTSA that has more information is after the jump.

      ironically, the recall might be for a gas leak issue, but all three are considered their most ugliest vehicles...

      If I owned a Joke, and discovered a fuel leak, I would immediately drop a lighted match in the leak area. Result, one less visual nightmare blighting the roads.

      The Juke is horrible looking. Actually I think all Nissans are fat, disgusting pigs. I'd still drive the hell out of a GT-R though, ugly or not. As for the article, way to go Nissan. You have to recall a car that came out, what, a year and a half ago? Nice.

      The Juke makes the Pontiac Aztek look like a masterpiece of automotive styling.
