The AP (7/27, Manning) reports that Nissan has informed NHTSA that it is recalling over 51,000 Cube models in North America “because of possible problems with fuel spilling during rear end collisions,” noting that “tests conducted by NHTSA safety regulators found more fuel spilled than federal standards allow. The spillage occurred during rear end crash tests at 50 miles per hour where the vehicle also spun onto its side.”
The spillage of fuel can lead to fires, which can be deadly. If you own a Cube, I encourage you to immediately contact Nissan and stop driving the vehicle. Your life is too precious.
