Nissan also had some issues

Nissan said its recall was prompted by an inadequate amount of coating on a bracket beside the fuel filler tube assembly. In states that use road salt during the winter, a mixture of snow, water and salt could cause corrosion on the bare metal part of the tube and allow fuel to leak.
