If you are a Nissan Sentra and Altima owner of models built in 2002, and 2005-2006, you should see your dealer right away because Nissan Motor Co. will ask owners of the said car models dealers for repair of its faulty crankshaft sensors. A total of 686,500 cars will be recalled in the U.S., Canada and Mexico respectively.
AHN reports that according to Nissan, the crankshaft position sensor is prone to overheating, which can interrupt sensor signals and stop the engine without warning while the car is driven at low speed. But company spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan said on Monday there were no incident of crashes or injuries resulting from the flaw.
