According to a recent news by Consumer News, about 33,800 Nissan Sentras are part of a recall issued due to issues with the engine reportedly stalling while the vehicle in is motion, potentially increasing the risks of collision.
The vehicle models included in the recall are the 2010 and 2011 year models of the Nissan Sentra with the MR20 equipped engine, The recalled vehicles were manufactured in May 2010 and from July 2010 through October 2010. The problem arises from an extra coating of applied zinc that may be too thick, causing the vehicles to stall in motion and potentially failing to restart.
Consumers should expect to be notified by the company to bring in their vehicles to their local dealers for an inspection and free replacement. For additional information, consumers should contact the company at 800-647-7261.
