Nissan North America is recalling 236,238 model year 2020-2022 Sentras.

The automobile manufacturer said the left and/or right tie rod may bend and break, causing a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.

In regard to what to do in addressing the defect, Nissan urged the affected  vehicle owners to contact their dealer for transport assistance, if they’re experiencing an off-center steering wheel or vibration.

However, as an interim repair, the company said dealers would inspect and replace any bent or broken tie rods free of charge, agency report said.

Once newly designed parts are available, dealers will replace both left and right tie rods free of charge.

Interim letters are expected to be mailed October 5, 2023, while a second letter will be mailed once the final remedy is available.

Vehicle owners may contact Nissan’s Customer Service on (800) 867-7669.

Nissan’s number for this recall which replaces and expands an earlier recall, is R23B

ConsumerConnect also gathered that vehicles previously repaired under the earlier would need to have the new remedy completed.
