On August 22, Nissan issued a recall notice for 236,238 Nissan Sentra models from 2020 to 2022 due to a steering system weakness. In particular, this part can be damaged in the event of a collision due to the weak steering rotor structure, the worst case being when the car hits a pothole.
Nissan became aware of the problem in January 2023 when a user requested a vehicle warranty because the steering system was incorrectly aligned. The Nissan dealer then discovered that the steering rotor was broken, causing the problem.
To find out what the Japanese brand is all about, a deeper analysis of this device is needed. However, at this point Nissan did not see any deviation from the basic equipment structure.
Yet in the first quarter, 4 other car owners were claiming warranties for the same reason, forcing the company to manually test more carefully. Then, the Japanese brand repeated the mistake by crashing the car into a huge pothole. In the worst case, the vehicle may lose control immediately afterwards.
According to the Japanese brand’s explanation, although there are no mistakes in the design of the steering rotor on paper, when operating under normal conditions, they are not durable enough to withstand external influences.
The Japanese brand will inspect all 240,000 recalled vehicles and prioritize replacement of rotors that show signs of wear or damage. “Normal” vehicles will be replaced with the following defective equipment. This entire process is handled by the company and does not incur additional cost to the user.
