Nissan has recalled 8,120 of its 2003 and 2004 M45 sedans because the fuel gauge can read full even if the car is running on fumes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall covers cars built from March 7, 2002, through June 3, 2004. You can find the date on the driver door jamb plaque. NHTSA says a bad circuit board could cause the gas gauge reading to be wrong and let the driver unexpectedly run out of fuel, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA has 43 complaints of wrong readings, including 26 in which the car ran out of gas and stalled even though the gauge registered “full.” Nissan will notify owners this month and dealers will fix the circuit board.
