More than 20,000 Nissan Sentras in Canada are being recalled for the same issue they faced in 2021.
The issue centres around front steering tie-rods can warp and break, leading to loss of steering control for certain 2020-2022 models.
Nissan said that if the tie-rod ends bend, they can be damaged and deform. If this happens, the tire rods may break, impacting the steering and increasing the risk of a collision.
The same problem forced recalls in 2021 — those vehicles repaired then will have to be repaired again.
Owners are being urged to contact their dealer if they notice their steering wheel isn’t centred or if they feel a vibration. Technicians will inspect and replace any broken or deformed parts and tire rod ends, both left and right, will be replaced when a new part is available at no cost to vehicle owners.
Letters informing owners about the issue will be sent out starting Oct. 5. A second letter will be sent when new parts are available.
The issue also affects 236,000 Sentras in the U.S.
