2010 Nissan Sentra Recalls

The Engine May Stall and Not Restart

Certain engines were assembled with a zinc coating applied to a terminal stud bolt that is thicker than specification. This can result in a poor electrical connection that may cause stalling, difficulty starting, and damage to the engine control module. If the engine were to stall while driving, the likelihood of a crash would increase. Dealers will replace the positive battery terminal and cover to correct this concern.

Nissan Recalls 2010–2011 Sentras Due to Gap in Contact Area of Battery Terminal

Nissan is recalling 2010–2011 Sentra models due a machining irregularity on the bolt/washer surface of the positive battery terminal cable end that causes a gap to occur in the contact area of the terminal. This may cause the engine to stop running while the vehicle is in motion at low speed with a hard or no start, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the positive battery terminal cable end with a new one, free of charge.

2010 Nissan Sentra Reviews

I have a 2010 Nissan Sentra SR and I really like the vehicle. The car is a winner as a gas miser in my opinion with 25 mpg city/ 34 mpg highway. I average about 30 miles per gallon. I really like the fact that the car comes with most features standard. The voice controlled bluetooth phone link is one of the prized options that helps to keep me safe when receiving or making ...
This car has refused to start three times. Have had a clutch sensor replaced twice and just yesterday, it wouldn't start. Had to pop the clutch to get it to run so I could get home. Has anyone else had this trouble?
Great car so far, only 12600 miles. Love the heated seats.
