Nissan Quest Minivan Recalled to Fix Fuel Pump Software


Nissan Quest minivans are being recalled to repair potentially faulty software that could shut off the fuel pump at low speeds or at idle on an incline. As a result, minivans may stall without warning at a quarter of a tank of gas or less, leading to the vehicle shutting off and an increased chance of an accident.

The recall affects 23,531 model year 2011 and 2012 Nissan Quest minivans manufactured between July 29, 2010 and Feb. 21, 2011. As outlined in the recall, Nissan will inform owners of the software issue in March 2012. Dealerships will then reprogram the fuel pump software module free of charge.

Concerned owners looking for further information can contact Nissan’s customer service hotline directly at (800) 647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at (888) 327-4236 with campaign number 12V076000.
