According to the recent reports from the Consumer Reports website, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration along the Nissan automaker is issuing a recall for all 2010 and 2011 Sentras.
The announcement states that over 33,800 units of the mentioned Sentra models have to be taken back to the dealerships due to an issue with their battery terminals. The company reveals that the engine may stall unexpectedly leading the vehicle to crash. The problem happened because during the manufacturing process, the battery terminals were covered with a zinc coating that was thicker than necessary.
Because of the faulty battery terminals, the engine can also present problems when the driver tries to restart the car. The national agency assured the media that the issue affects only the vehicles manufactured during May, July, August, September and October of 2010 and are equipped with the MR20 engines.
As a Seattle car accident lawyer I want to remind all owners of the recalled Nissan Sentras that it is against the law to sell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product. If you own a Sentra that has been recalled, you can take it into your local dealer where they will perform a thorough inspection for free.
Whenever you are injured in an accident that was caused by a third party and that left you harmed in any way, contact a personal injury attorney to assist you.

The Consumer Reports agency states that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall for an approximate number of 7,300 vehicles of the 2011 Nissan Rogue model. According to the news, the recall is related to an incorrect installation of electric parts. The alleged incorrect installation, according to the national agency may cause a serious failure of the electric power steering systems in the Nissan Rogue vehicles.
According to the NHTSA, the affected cars were put together between August 2010 and October 2011. The issue was described to be provoked because the circuit board from the electric power steering known as EPS was poorly settled, leading most connections to fail. Eventually, the vehicle loses its power steering assistance due to these problems. According to the agency, this issue possibly leads to serious collisions.
Nissan has announced that all registered owners will be notified of the recall right away.
As a Renton car accident attorney I urge Nissan Rogue owners in Washington to take their cars to dealerships in a timely manner so the faulty EPS control unit will be entirely replaced for free. Personal injury lawyers know of the dangers related to faulty vehicles. Don’t live with this serious accident threat to you, other drivers and pedestrians, respond quickly.
