2007-2008 Nissan Sentra vehicles recalled due to potential brake fluid leak
Brake fluid leak may cause brake circuits to operate wrongly
On July 2, 2008, Nissan North America, Inc. announced it was recalling about 169,202 2007 Nissan Sentra vehicles and 2008 Nissan Sentra vehicles because an irregularity in the Robert Bosch Master Cylinder may cause a gap in the groove contact area of the seal, which could result in brake fluid slowly leaking into the brake booster assembly.
This would cause the brake warning to illuminate and, if ignored, a brake circuit may not operate properly, increasing the risk of a catastrophic injury from a car accident.
Nissan dealers will inspect the Master Cylinder/Brake Booster Assembly and will replace it if a brake fluid leak is detected. Nissan owners may contact the company at 1-800-647-7261. For more information, customers may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration?s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or visit safercar.gov.
