Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. reportedly is recalling 475,000 Japan-built Primera cars and X-Trail small SUVs due to a defective fuel-filler tube. The tube may rust at the mounting bracket, which could lead to a pinhole-sized opening that would allow fuel to leak when an owner refuels the vehicle. No accidents related to the defect have been reported. The vehicles involved were sold in Europe, Canada and Japan.
