Nissan is recalling over 51,000 of its Q. hatchbacks in the United States and Canada because of possible problems with fuel spillage during rear end collisions. The recall covers model year 2009 and 2010 Cubes made between January 30, 2009 and July 30, 2010. Dealers were notified in late July 2000 and are to contact owners on August 30, 2010, and will attach a special protector to prevent leaks.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing of the vehicle down more fuel spillage with a rear end collision occurred then is allowed by the federal standards. The spillage occurred during rear end crash tests at 50 miles an hour were the vehicle also spun onto its side. Nissan has stated that earlier tests did not show any fuel leakage, but agreed to the voluntary recall.

Owners should look for the recall by mail and can contact Nissan with any more questions at 800-647-7261, or can contact the NHTSA Hotline at 888-327-4236.

Toyota reported a similar problem in June 2000 and from NHTSA's testing of a Lexus hybrid. Toyota also issued a recall.
