Steering Concerns Drove Nissan Sentra to a Recall

Nissan Sentra recently seems to have hit a rough patch. Drivers have been reporting steering issues in these models, and it has caused a buzz in the auto industry. Such allegations can cause serious legal consequences for Nissan. Now, the company is under pressure to handle owners and has decided to issue a recall.

Issues and Allegations 

The Nisan Sentra sedans from 2020-2022 are reported to have faulty manufacturing. The cars are made with defective parts that could cause major steering problems for drivers. The main culprit is the tie rods present in these cars. Without these rods, your car’s steering wouldn’t properly connect to the tires. They’re essentially the backbone of the whole steering setup. When the vehicle is driven roughly or hits a roadside curb, the tie rod experiences serious impact and can bend easily. If the rod suffers damage or fails, it can increase the chances of a severe car accident. This issue poses significant safety questions regarding the Nissan Sentra.

The Recall: Major Details

Nissan has reportedly received 91 complaints of faulty and broken tie rods in Sentra vehicles manufactured and sold from 2020 to 2022. Also, the records present in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration depict five car crashes due to this default. Although no reports of injuries have been received yet, this problem seems to have escalated and is causing a stir within the auto industry.

With compromised vehicle control, the lives of drivers and passengers are at a huge risk. It’s important to note that these vehicle models have already undergone a recall in 2021. However, the Nissan Motor Company failed to address the issues promptly. Consequently, the need for yet another recall has arisen at this juncture. Owners must stay alert for updates regarding this case because any changes can unfold something new for the selected vehicle models.

Affected Models 

The total number of Sentras to be recalled is over 236,000. Affected models include:

  • 2020 Nissan Sentra
  • 2021 Nissan Sentra
  • 2022 Nissan Sentra

Potential Outcomes

Reportedly, owners will need to make two visits to Nissan dealerships for tie rod issues. Initially, dealers will examine and change any damaged tie rods. Another visit will be required once updated parts become available, aiming to replace both the left and right tie rods. Nissan projects the complete solution to be rolled out by winter. All affected owners are advised to keep in touch with the manufacturer. Any updates can have a significant impact on the Nissan Motor Company and consumer safety protocols.


Ensuring manufacturer accountability is of utmost importance as it directly impacts the safety of drivers and the general public who share the roads. As the proceedings unfold, a potential decline in Nissan’s sales is anticipated. When fighting against such automotive giants, always have legal experts at your back.
