Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

WASHINGTON — 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 that tests con­ducted by fed­eral safety reg­u­la­tors found more fuel spilled than fed­eral stan­dards al­low.

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