Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2007 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 50,000 miles


I have a 2007 Sentra 2.0S, with brand new Goodyear assurance tripletred tires, that I bought new from Nissan in brooklyn park, mn. Its cold and icy here in the winters! I started noticing a lot of swaying and loudness in the rear on bumpy roads and ice/snow. After roughly 5000 miles of driving on new tires all around, my rear tires decreased significantly to 6/32S, brand new is 11/32S, and when I spoke to the dealership about this issue, they had no comment. When I spoke to discount tires about the 80K warranty on the Goodyear tires, they said they would replace them but were very confused about how they got bald so quick at only 5K miles. I cannot drive this in the winter but its suppose to save me gas, but it doesn't. my little Acura has better gas mileage. Obviously when I took it into the dealership, they had no clue what the issue was and even when I said, "I have read a lot on rear tire alignment issues with my Nissan and I want answers from you", they still look at me like they have no idea what I am talking about. Until I showed them what I printed off the internet, they told me they are not aware of the situations around the globe and if I wanted to fix my Sentra it's not covered under warranty.

My 2007 Nissan Sentra was pulling hard to the left with brand new tires just installed the day before, so I brought the car to the dealership after two alignments had been performed with no change in the handling or pulling of the car. It was divulged after a day of diagnostics that the car had a bent rear axle replaced in April of 2009. From the factory it was conveyed that my particular model had the wrong axle installed on it and many other vehicles from my model year were affected. The car left the shop and was no longer pulling. Gradually my alignment began to worsen and since the incident I had it redone 4 times since April. The final time I told the dealership to keep the car because something must be wrong and they did two days worth of test to rule out tire wear and other problems. It was determined that the new rear axle was bent at a 20 degree angle causing the pull. There was no damage to my low profile tires or rims nor a collision that would cause the damage as the dealer was able to testify too yet the axle still bent. It was not covered this time and the pull was dangerous still to the left. This must be a defect with this model year.

A manufacturing defect of the rear cross member does not allow adjustment for toe alignment which resulted in excessive tire wear creating an incalculable risk of failure.

Sentra 4-cyl

  • miles
Rear tires are wornout @ 11,000 miles. Nissan replaced 2 rear axles and rear suspension assembly and 2 rear tires. They changed the alignment specs and said it was fine. Consumer Affairs didn't answer calls for 2 months. Inspector checked the rear tires that had just been rotated from the front and said they didn't show signs out being out of alignment. They wouldn't contact their factory in tn / safety engineer who had requested the original rear tires be shipped to them. A similar vehicle was checked by the dealership and it too had alignment specs that were out and similar to our vehicle. We have 24000 miles and ready for a second set of tires. Still out of alignment, has always been out of alignment, technicians state it'll never be in alignment because there's an engineering problem.

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,700 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Sentra. On October 6, 2007, the vehicle was taken to the dealer for its 7,500 mile maintenance service. The tires were rotated and balanced at that time. While driving between 65-70 mph, the steering wheel began to vibrate and shake. He called the dealer and they stated that he could take the vehicle to a dealer that was located closer to him. At that time, he and the dealer believed the tires just needed to be aligned. When he took the vehicle to another dealer, they found that the rear suspension needed to be replaced in addition to the two tires that were just rotated from the rear to the front. The vehicle is currently still with the dealer. The current and failure mileages were 7,700.
