Approximately 139,000 Nissan Sentra sedans are being recalled due to a bent tie rod in the steering linkage. The left or right tie rod may be bent and eventually break, causing a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Nissan will begin notifying owners on Aug 5. Owners can call the automaker at 800-867-7669 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the bent tie rods, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
