Risk of Brake Fluid Leak Prompts Nissan Sentra Recall

November 04, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Nissan North America is recalling more than 10,500 MY 2009 Sentra passenger vehicles equipped with Bosch master cylinders because of the risk of brake fluid leaking from the master cylinders. 

If the amount of brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir decreases to below the minimum level, the brake system warning indicator will illuminate as designed and the brakes will not function properly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported. If the driver continuously ignores the warning lamp, one of the brake circuits on the vehicle may fail, increasing stopping distances and raising the risk of a crash. 

Dealers will inspect and replace the master cylinder brake booster assembly free of charge. 

The recall begins this month. Nissan can be reached at (800) 647-7261.
