Nissan is recalling more than a half a million cars because of problems with the steering columns and battery cables.
The company says 303,000 model year Frontier and 283,000 Xterra SUVs because the lower steering column join can develop corrosion that limits movement. If it’s not repaired it can lead to cracking of the steering shaft.
18,500 Sentra sedans are being recalled because of battery cable problems. The automaker says drivers may have difficulty starting the vehicle or possible stalling at low speeds.
The SUV's involved were made during the 2002 through 2004 model year. The Nissan Sentras involved were made between May 15, 2010 to July 8, 2010 in Aguascalientes, Mexico.
Nissan will begin notifying owners in early December once replacement parts are available. If you have questions you can call Nissan Consumer Affairs at 1-800-NISSAN1 (1-800-647-7261). You can also contact their Nissan dealer.
