2016-2018 Infiniti Q50, 2017 Infiniti Q60 recalled over stalling concerns
Nissan is recalling some 14,192 Infiniti Q50 and Q60 vehicles from the 2016, 2017, and 2018 model years. Documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicate that, due to a software glitch, those vehicles may be at risk of stalling.
The software in question is found on the cars’ fuel pump control module. Due to some miscalculations involving fuel pressure, NHTSA says that the software “may allow the fuel level in the main tank to be too low to supply fuel

The recall affects the 2016-2018 Infiniti Q50 and the 2017 Infiniti Q60. Nissan will mail recall notices to owners of those vehicles around August 21. After receiving those notices, owners will be able to take their vehicles to Infiniti dealerships for service. Dealers will reprogram the software on the fuel pump control module at no charge…
