1995-1996 Nissan Sentra Automobiles Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain 1995-1996
Nissan Sentra automobiles because the front coil springs may not have sufficient corrosion
resistance in areas of the country where significant amounts of de-icing salts are applied
to roads in the winter.
According to NHTSA, if a broken
spring comes out of the lower seat, it could contact and puncture the tire.
14,800 of these vehicles, manufactured between
May, 1995 through November, 1995 are affected by this recall.
Dealers will replace the front coil spring. The
manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during April 2000.
Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
