2010 Nissan Sentra Recalls

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 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.

Nissan is recalling 2008–2010 models equipped with Garmin Nuvi 750 navigation systems because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Nissan will notify owners and Garmin technicians will replace the unit's battery and insert a spacer to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

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 ...

Great car so far, only 12600 miles. Love the heated seats.
