Nissan recalls 46,000 Cubes

WASHINGTON – Nissan is recalling 46,000 of its Cube model over possible problems with fuel spilling during rear-end collisions.

In documents filed with the federal government, Nissan says tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found more fuel spilled than federal standards allow.

Nissan said its own earlier tests did not show any fuel leakage, but it will issue a voluntary recall. It notified dealers last week and will contact owners on Aug. 30. The recall covers some model year 2009 and 2010 Cubes.

Dealers will attach a special protector to prevent future leaks.
