2010-'11 Nissan Sentra Recalled Because of Engine Problem

Just the Facts:
Nissan is recalling 13,737 2010-'11 Sentra cars because the engine may stop running while the vehicle is in motion.
NHTSA said the Sentras were built from May 22 through July 8, 2010.
The recall is expected to begin on November 29.

WASHINGTON — Nissan is recalling 13,737 2010-'11 Sentra sedans because the engine may stop running while the vehicle is in motion, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

NHTSA said the Sentras were built from May 22 through July 8, 2010. They have a "machining irregularity," it said.

"The bolt/washer surface on the positive battery terminal cable end may allow for a gap to occur in the contact area of the terminal," said NHTSA in its recalls summary of the problem. "This can result in a voltage drop that may cause difficulty starting the vehicle and could cause damage to the engine control module. This issue can cause the engine to stop running while the vehicle is in motion at low speed with a difficult or no start, increasing the risk of a crash."

Nissan dealers will replace the positive battery terminal cable end with a new one. The recall is expected to begin on November 29. Nissan owners can contact the automaker at (800) 647-7261.
