Nissan Calls Back All Of Its 2024 Sentra Models Due To Potential Propulsion Loss

The compact four-door 2024 Nissan Sentra is undergoing a recall due to an absent fastener that could lead to an unexpected reduction in engine thrust while the vehicle is in motion, announced by the NHTSA on Monday.

The concern involves the left-side front driveshaft on the sedan powered by the front wheels. The shaft might not have a secure attachment to the housing of the continuously variable automatic gearbox. This fault could result in the spilling of the gearbox fluid, inducing a decline in pressure that may cause the automobile to stumble or pause abruptly. A warning light or another alert may be visible on the dash display.

In some instances, the driveshaft might totally detach from the CVT, potentially causing the vehicle to cease advancing altogether. Nonetheless, the driveshaft remains partially affixed to the gearbox.

The flaw is exclusively associated with the updated 2024 Nissan Sentra, assembled at the company’s Aguascalientes facility in Mexico. The factory went through recent modernizing, which appears to have impacted the production of the shaft and CVT. The CVT has been re-engineered for more refined gear transitions and improved fuel efficiency for the 2024 iteration.

The EPA’s fuel consumption forecast is a 34-mpg combined rate, an improvement from the 33 mpg combined of the preceding year’s version. This is commendable in a category of entry-level vehicles that prioritize fuel frugality, including hybrid variants that reach over 52 mpg such as those from Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra, in addition to the upcoming Honda Civic.

Nissan has determined that approximately 9,645 Sentras might be impacted by the issue, and has identified 58 occurrences where the left-side shaft was not correctly affixed to the gearbox, in addition to nine warranty claims.

There was a previous recall incident concerning the 2024 Sentra, occurring in February as part of a minor recall involving 351 Nissan vehicles for an issue linked to the airbag.

Notices will be dispatched by postal mail beginning June 20 to alert owners about the defect that necessitates a trip to the dealership for service. Nissan projects that the inspection will require 30 minutes, and should the driveshaft installation be incorrect, rectifications could consume up to seven hours. The repair will be conducted at no charge to the car owners, excluding their time.
