2001 Nissan Sentra Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001 Nissan Sentra automobiles  manufactured between July 2000 and April 2001.

One or more of the three bolts used to attach each front suspension lower control arm to the body on the left and right sides may not have been properly manufactured.  The bolts could fracture, increasing the risk of a crash.

80,000 vehicles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace the lower control arm attachment bolts. Owner notification is expected to begin by the end of June 2001.

Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
