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

  • 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.

The tire sensor light would come on and I would have to put air in the tires every other day. With only 40,000 miles and they are rated for 80,000, I had them checked by a tire store. They found a bubble on the inside & outside wall. They also found what appeared to be slash marks on the inside of the tire. Would not let me drive away without signing a release stating that I was aware of the condition. Nissan dealer is no help, they just direct me to Bridgestone. Tires were rotated on schedule by the dealer.

Took 2007 Nissan model S in for alignment. The front tires were in realigned into specifications set by manufacturer. I was informed by the service department at Nissan burdick syracuse NY that there the rear wheels were out of spec and could not be brought back into specification. Informed by technician that this is a known issue. I was forced to purchase new tires after only 26K miles on the car. Specifications for alignment: 2008 Nissan Sentra specs front caster L 5.7, 4.2 R 4.2, 5.7 camber L 0.9, -0.9 R -0.9, 0.9 toe L -0.04, 0.04 R 0.04, -0.04 rear camber L -1, -2 R -1, -2 toe L -0.12, 0.2 R.2, -0.12 total toe -0.24, 0.39 service department where discovered: Drivers village ed cisneros 315-233-5315 315-233-5377 (fax) Nissan forum where problem common problem discovered and discussed:

Was washing my car and notice that all 4 tires have cracks all the way around the tire. I have a 2007 Nissan Sentra with only 12,000 miles, I bought the car new in Dec. 2006. I went to Nissan dealer, they said it is just dry rot, but it nothing they can do eventually I'll need new tires. Went to Firestone/Bridgestone and they seem unconcern, just that it is the environment in which we live with the cold then heat which dry the tires out. My concern is I only had these tires just a little over 2 years and not 4 or 5 the life time of these tires, they should no be cracking like this. Please look into this matter, I feel that have been sold a car with bad tires.

We are experiencing severe rear tire wear. Dealership refused to acknowledge problem until the third visit when we went with handful of testimonials( printed from car review sites on internet) from other people experiencing this same problem with their Nissan 2007-2008 Sentra's. on our third visit dealership manager said he would call Nissan Corp. And personally speak to regional manager on our behalf. We also called Nissan Corp. And filed a complaint on 06/17/08. Rm called us on 6/18/08 and left message sidestepping rear end issue by stating to us that tires are not under warranty by Nissan. ??. we returned call to regional manager telling her that tires at this time are not the issue, it is a defective rear end, suspension or engineering. We just want the problem corrected.

Tires are incompatible with winter weather driving. Car slides and drifts making it unable to safely handle, and dangerous as vehicles constantly attempt to pass.this is unacceptable for a six month old car.
