Nissan North America is recalling 12,112 Titan XD diesel pickup trucks in the 2016 model year because the fuel gauge in these vehicles might malfunction, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The trucks at issue were manufactured from Aug. 7, 2015, to Sept. 1, 2016. They may not have had the temporary fuel tank breather tube cap removed during vehicle assembly, and the fuel tank breather tube may not have been connected to the bed rail. As a result, the fuel tank may not have adequate ventilation, possibly causing the fuel gauge and the distance-to-empty meter to both display inaccurately, NHTSA said.

If the fuel gauge reads incorrectly, the vehicle can run out of fuel without the driver being aware, increasing the risk of a crash,” the federal safety agency warned on its website.

Nissan dealers will inspect the fuel tank breather tube, and then replace the fuel tank, fuel-sending unit, and/or fuel tank breather tube as needed. There will be no charge for this service.
