Nissan Motor Co said it was recalling 7,842 2013 Infiniti JX35 crossover vehicles to check for defective fuel gauges.

The Japanese automaker said a faulty gauge in the new luxury crossover could indicate a higher fuel level than actually exists.

In its official recall notice, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a filing late on Tuesday that the faulty gauge could cause the JX35 to run out of fuel unexpectedly, increasing the risk of crash.
