Nissan Recalls Certain 1995 and 1996 Sentras
Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1995 and 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.
If a broken spring comes out of the lower seat, it
could contact and puncture the tire. Dealers will replace the front coil spring.
About 14,800 vehicles, manufactured between May,
1995 through November, 1995, are affected by this recall. Owners of affected
vehicles that are registered in states that use significant amounts of de-icing salts will
be notified this month to schedule repair work.
Owners who do not have there vehicles registered
in an affected state will be sent a letter advising them of the problem in case the car
may have been driven in the northern states.
Consumers with questions concerning the recall
should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
