Nissan Has Recalled the 2002 Sentra SER
Nissan Has Recalled the 2002 Sentra SER because a small
amount of mat movement could cause the mat to interfere with the accelerator
Potential Number of Units Affected: 9640
Manufactured: 09/2001 - 02/2002
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A NISSAN-APPROVED
ACCESSORY FLOOR MAT WHICH WAS INSTALLED EITHER AT THE ASSEMBLY PLANT OR BY
THE DEALER. DUE TO THE LENGTH OF THE DRIVER SIDE FLOOR MAT, A SMALL AMOUNT
OF MAT MOVEMENT COULD CAUSE THE MAT TO INTERFERE WITH THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL
AND NOT ALLOW THE PEDAL TO RELEASE AFTER IT IS DEPRESSED.
IF THIS OCCURS UNEXPECTEDLY, IT COULD LEAD TO A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE DRIVER SIDE FLOOR MAT AND IF IT IS A NISSAN FLOOR
MAT SUBJECT TO THIS RECALL, THE DEALER WILL REPLACE BOTH THE DRIVER AND
PASSENGER SIDE FLOOR MATS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING
MARCH 2002. 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.
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02V056000.
