Nissan Has Recalled the 2002 Sentra SER

(SafetyAlerts) -  Nissan Has Recalled the 2002 Sentra SER because a small amount of mat movement could cause the mat to interfere with the accelerator pedal.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 9640

Manufactured: 09/2001 - 02/2002

Defect Summary:
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.

Consequence Summary:
IF THIS OCCURS UNEXPECTEDLY, IT COULD LEAD TO A CRASH.

Corrective Summary:
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.

If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
