“Porsche are recalling 2,910 Cayennes to replace loose headlights, while 8,730 owners of Nissan Infiniti models QX56 and M and Nissan Patrol and Juke vehicles are being asked to return their cars because of a fault in the fuel rail.
The Cayenne problem relates to a twist lock mechanism that fixes the headlights in place. If the twist lock is not secure, a head light could fall out. This is a particular risk when the driver is rapidly accelerating or braking heavily while taking a corner. A statement on the Porsche Middle East website said: “The headlight locking system on current 2011 and 2012 Cayenne models is being reworked.
For Nissan, they stated that the fuel rail pressure sensor could be tightened insufficiently to the fuel rail on certain vehicles engines and could gradually loosen, potentially causing a leak in extreme cases.” Source
So, I guess the same car models that were sent from the same factories to Kuwait were a special “flawless” edition, different from the cars made for the rest of the world. Or else why wouldn’t there be any cars recalled here?
On a side note, It’s the first time for me to see the Nissan Juke and what an ugly car it is! I’ve always felt that the headlights of a car give it personality. So when somebody decides to stick two sets of headlights on one car, all we get is a car with split-personality disorder.
