Nissan Announces Sentra Recall

4 March 1998

Voluntary Recall Campaign Announced By Nissan

              1996-1997 Sentra Stop Lamp Voluntary Safety Recall

    CARSON, Calif., March 4 -- Nissan Motor Corporation U.S.A.,
distributor of Nissan vehicles, announced today a voluntary recall campaign
affecting approximately 60,000 Sentra models manufactured during the 1996 and
1997 model years.
    On some Sentra models manufactured during this period, the rear stop lamps
fail to conform with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108 -- Lamps,
Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.  The affected stop lamps may not
be bright enough when the brakes are applied according to the aforementioned
Federal Standards.
    To correct this condition, new light bulbs for the stop lamps (which are
brighter than the original light bulbs) will be provided, along with a
customer letter, to those customers whose vehicles are affected.  They may
then install the light bulbs themselves or they may have an authorized Nissan
dealer install them at no charge.
