Nissan has announced a recall on Quest minivans manufactured from July 29, 2010 through February 21, 2012.

Due to a flaw in its software programming, an insufficient supply of fuel to the engine may occur when the Quest is driven slowly along a descent or idling on a decline with a 1/4 tank of fuel or less. In some cases, the engine may stall.

To address this problem, Nissan will notify affected Quest owners to bring their car to a local Nissan dealer for a reprogramming of its engine control module, free of charge.

Nissan will begin the recall process during mid March 2012. A total of 23,531 units are potentially affected. Concerned Nissan owners may also contact customer service at 1-800-647-7261.
