Infiniti QX56 News
According to Motoring.com.au, Infiniti will slowly be killing off its naturally aspirated V8 powerplants. The report comes after the Australian site spoke with Johan de Nysschen, Infiniti's global president, who stated that eight-cylinder engines are not in the product plans for any new vehicles currently on the drawing board.
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.
Yes, we obsessively cover the auto industry, but that doesn't mean we don't enjoy other modes of transportation. We may even get downright giddy when two different worlds collide, like for example, when a boat is powered by a large automobile engine.

The line at the door for the recall party is getting longer.

The issue lies with a faulty ignition relay that could cause the engine to stall or fail to restart. The fix is reported to take less than 25 minutes, and involves swapping out the faulty ignition relay for a new one.
