Nissan Announces Sentra Recall
4 March 1998Voluntary 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. SOURCE Nissan Motor Corporation U.S.A.
