The contact owns a 2001 Nissan Sentra. The contact stated the check engine warning light would sporadically illuminate on the dashboard. In addition, the vehicle would intermittently stall without warning. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where she was advised that the catalytic converter was defective and would need to be replaced. The contact believed NHTSA campaign id number: 03V455000 (engine and engine cooling) was associated with the failure but the dealer advised her VIN was not included with the recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer would not provide any assistance. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 191,565.

On December 28, 2003, my 2001 Nissan Sentra caught on fire while driving through reno Nevada. Another car brought to our attention that our car was on fire. When my daughter pulled over and opened the hood, she noticed a small fire in the rear of the engine. She managed to put the fire out with water. Upon inspection at the Nissan dealership in Nevada, they noted some object was caught between the catalytic converter and the car frame. The fire melted one cv boot.
