The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Nissan issued a recall of nearly a quarter of a million vehicles this week due to steering wheel problems.
About 236,000 Nissan Sentra vehicles between 2020 and 2022 have a weak steering wheel tie rod, which may bend or break, causing the vehicle to lose steering and crash, The report states.
Any Sentra driver who feels their steering is unstable or off-center is advised to contact their local dealer immediately. The automaker said the tie rods will be replaced so that booster parts can be installed in the future.
Nissan issued a recall back in 2021 for the same version of a smaller range of Sentras. Vehicles that have been repaired in the previous recall do not need new parts. This recall affected less than 140,000 vehicles.
Nissan said the company will contact all drivers by Oct. 5 and send another letter when a final part becomes available.
