VOLUNTARY RECALL CAMPAIGN SCHEDULED BY NISSAN
CARSON CITY, Calif., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan Motor Corporation U.S.A., distributor of Nissan cars and trucks, announced today a voluntary recall campaign on approximately 4,900 1993 Quest minivans. Nissan reported that the vehicles are being recalled to replace the fuel filler hose which may have been cut at the assembly plant. This cut could result in fuel leakage which would likely be discovered during filling, or when the fuel tank is full or near full. Nissan is aware of no injuries, accidents, customer complaints or cases of fuel leakage or vehicle fires related to this condition. This potential concern was discovered during quality inspections at the assembly plant in Avon Lake, Ohio. Owners of affected vehicles were officially notified of the safety recall in letters mailed Dec. 11. Nissan is offering to arrange for their vehicles to be picked up at the owner's home or place of employment, repaired at the dealership, and delivered back to the owner -- in many cases on the same day. In addition, Nissan dealers will return every affected vehicle with the fuel tank full. To further reduce customer inconvenience, free loaner cars will be provided to any customers desiring one while their vehicle is undergoing service for this recall. If owners prefer, they may bring their vehicle to a Nissan dealership themselves for performance of the recall. -0- 12/18/92 /CONTACT: Lynn Folse, 310-719-3165, or Tony Wells, 310-767-6404, both of Nissan Motor Corp U.S.A.
