Nissan is recalling as many as 9,645 of its 2024 Sentra compact cars, over how an unexpected loss of power can increase the risk of crashes of the affected vehicles.

The automobile manufacturer Monday, May 6 this year said a transmission fluid leak and loss of drive power could occur if “the front left-side driveshaft isn’t fully seated in the continuously variable transmission assembly, or if there is a loose or missing retaining chip,” Nissan said Monday.

ConsumerConnect learnt the latest recall is Nissan’s second recall for its 2024 Sentras. In February, Nissan had recalled 43 of its 2023-2024 Nissan Sentra cars, citing a moisture issue that can cause airbags to deploy improperly.

The 2024 Nissan Sentra, however, has not received a rating yet from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

There are currently no complaints and investigations regarding the vehicle, according to the NHTSA, agency report said.

Nissan recalls are down recently after it recalled millions of cars in 2016 over airbag concerns

In connection with what to do in addressing the defect, the company said Nissan Sentra owners could go to dealerships to inspect the front-left driveshaft. If necessary, dealers will replace the driveshaft and CVT assembly free of charge.

Affected vehicle owners can call the automobile manufacturer on 1-800-867-7669, and Nissan’s number for this recall is PMA37.
