2007 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 105,000 miles


While going on up and down steep hills in a city all of a sudden the engine stalls and the breaks stop working. This happened to me several times and to my luck as there was no traffic I got escaped without any accidents. Both the times I stopped the vehicle by shifting it to the parking mode. Some times the steering also automatically shifts to manual mode and the steering becomes tight. So the issues are with both the brakes and steering and this could be a computer/communication glitch which is not communicating with the brakes properly. When I stop the vehicle and restarts after sometime again brakes works normally and everything works fine. But after some days this issue repeats. Right now I am taking the vehicle to the nearby dealer to get more information on the vehicle condition. Once I get a clear explanation of the vehicle condition I will add more information to this complaint. Right now the mileage on the vehicle is 105000. I think there are some recalls on this vehicle and I am not sure if they have recall on this particular case.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Sentra. While driving at high speeds, the air bag warning light illuminated on the instrument panel without warning. In addition, the brake light flickered on and off and when the brakes were applied and the vehicle responded slower than usual. The contact experienced the same failures explained in NHTSA campaign number: 08V311000 (service brakes), but the VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 80,000.
