2011 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.

2011 Nissan Sentra Reviews

Had to get my new 2011 nissan sentra towed to the dealership because it would not start. They called me the next day and said the ECU was bad. How does the ECU go bad in a car that is only a ear old? That doesn't make any sense. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, or if anyone can tell me exactly how an ECU can go bad in such a new car. Thanks.
