The Japanese based automaker Nissan has recently announced a recall which will affect its 2010 – 2011 Sentra models because of a problem with the battery system.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 33.803 units of the Nissan Sentra will be affected by the recall and the models made between May 11 and May 22, 2010 or between July 8 and October 25, 2010, will have to be taken back to the dealerships to deal with the problem. The NHTSA says that all affected units are powered by the MR20 engines and because of the problem with the battery system the vehicles may experience a drop in voltage from the battery and it would make the cars difficult to start.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also says that the voltage drop might happen while the vehicles are in motion, which would cause them to stall in traffic and increase the risk of an accident. Nissan didn’t say anything yet about receiving any reports of crashes of injuries because of this problem. Owners of the above mentioned model can contact the carmaker at 800-647-7261 or the NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and reference recall #11V579000. Nissan will notify owners of the 2010 – 2012 Nissan Sentra before January 23, 2012.
