Nissan Motor Co. is recalling 169,202 of its 2007 and 2008 model year Sentra vehicles because of a problem with the brakes, according to this news report. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation found that the brake master cylinder on these automobiles might leak fluid causing one of the brake circuits to fail leading to brake failure and an accident.
Consumers who own a recalled Nissan Sentra should be getting these recall notices in the mail. Nissan officials say that consumers should also pay attention to their brake warning light. If the light illuminates, they should take their car to a dealer immediately. Failure to do so, may result in one of the brake circuits not operating increasing the risk of a crash.
Nissan dealers have already started inspecting the vehicles. Nissan will replace the master cylinder free of charge. Anyone who needs more information is asked to contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
California Lemon Law provides for a refund of the money you paid for the vehicle or a replacement car if the manufacturer or dealer cannot repair your automobile after a reasonable number of attempts.
