The Japanese automaker is forced to recall 2020 and 2021 cars in the US due to problems with the steering wheel.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the United States has a message about the recall of the Nissan Sentra. The cause is a violation of the assembly process, during which the lateral rods could bend. The recall covers 138,736 copies of the Sentra sedan, collected from November 25, 2019 to March 24, 2021. The company said it was unaware of any accidents or injuries caused by this malfunction.
Nissan says the malfunction is caused by a manufacturing problem at its Aguascalientes plant. The specified malfunction may affect the driver’s ability to drive, as well as cause vibration while driving or lead to partial loss of control, which will increase the risk of an accident.
On June 18, 2021, Nissan notified dealerships about the problem, while the owners of these vehicles will be notified of the need to visit the service center only on August 5. Your Nissan dealer will check and replace the left and right track rods free of charge.
