Massive Recall for South Dakota, Iowa & Minnesota Nissan Drivers
If you're looking for a car with reliable steering to get you where you need to be, the Nissan Sentra might not be the best vehicle at the moment.
Nissan is recalling over 200,000 Sentra sedans after reports of "a tie rod in the car’s suspension that could bend or break, causing the driver to lose steering control." Multiple news outlets are reporting this massive recall including CBS News.
The article from CBS News is reporting that 236,000 newer models of Nissan Sentra compact cars are being recalled. A notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains all the details about the recall:
The recall covers certain Sentra compact cars from the 2020 through 2022 model years. The vehicles' front suspension tie rods can bend and break, which could cause drivers to lose control of the steering wheel and crash.
The model that is affected is the 2020-2021 Sentra (B18). Nissan also released a statement:
Owners that notice their steering wheel is off center or produces a vibration should immediately contact a dealer for an inspection and replacement of any potentially bent or broken tie rods. Dealers will replace both the left and right tie rods free of charge for parts and labor when a new design is available.
This is not the first time the Sentra model has been recalled. Many Nissan Sentras were recalled in 2021 for this same issue. Nissan will be mailing letters by October 5th notifying Nissan owners about this recent recall. They will also send owners a second once the parts are available.
