Nissan Cube

Nissan is recalling 51,100 of its Cube hatchbacks in the United States and Canada because of possible problems with fuel spilling during rear-end collisions.

In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nissan Motor Co. said Monday tests conducted by NHTSA safety regulators found more fuel spilled than federal standards allow.

The spillage occurred during rear end crash tests at 50 miles per hour where the vehicle also spun onto its side.

It notified dealers last week and will contact owners on Aug. 30. Dealers will attach a special protector to prevent leaks.

There have been no injuries or incidents reported by drivers, according to Nissan.

The recall covers model year 2009 and 2010 Cubes made between Jan. 30, 2009 and July 30. It includes 45,700 in the United States and 5,400 in Canada. Cubes sold in Europe and Japan are not included because they use different parts.


About 324,000 bamboo torches, made in China and distributed by Atico International USA Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., because the fuel canister that holds the torch's wick has a sharp edge inside its opening. This poses a laceration hazard when consumers try to remove the wick. They were sold at CVS, Rite Aid, Dollar Tree and Deal$ stores from February 2008 through March 2010.
