Recall Alert: Infiniti M45/Nissan Sentra

Nissan and Infiniti Announce Potential Safety Hazards

Dec 19, 2011

If you own an Infiniti M45 or a Nissan Sentra, you may want to check if your car has been affected by a new safety investigation or a recall.

Nissan is recalling some 2010 and 2011 Sentra sedans for a faulty electrical system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a battery cable could corrode, causing the vehicle to stall out while in motion and prevent the engine from restarting.

As Autoblog explains, “Certain Sentras with MR20 engines had too much zinc applied to the stud bolt, which can cause a drop in voltage severe enough to cut power to the engine when trying to start the car and when running.”

To find out whether your Sentra is one of the roughly 33,800 that are affected by the recall, you can call NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or visit the agency’s website at Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Nissan dealers will replace the positive battery terminal cable end with a new one for free.

Infiniti is investigating M45 sedans from model years 2003 and 2004 for the possibility of broken fuel gauges. The automaker says that it has received 43 complaints of inaccurate fuel readings, resulting in 26 people running out of fuel. Neither the automaker nor NHTSA has announced a recall yet, since they’re still checking out the problem, but if you own an Infiniti M45 from those model years, you should keep a close eye on your odometer and the amount of gas you put in your tank, in case your car is affected by these fuel gauge problems.
