Nissan is recalling almost 170,000 Sentra sedans to fix a brake cylinder that could leak fluid, reports the AP and MSNBC.com.
The recall includes 2007 and 2008 model-year Sentras. Nissan said that an irregularity in some of the cylinders could lead to a gap that could allow fluid to leak into the brake booster assembly.
The leak could cause the brake-warning light to turn on. Nissan said if the warning lamp is ignored, one of the brake circuits may not operate and could increase the risk of a crash.
Nissan spokesman Colin Price said there have been no crashes or injuries related to the issue.
Nissan plans to notify owners beginning Wednesday and will repair the issue free of charge. Contact your Nissan dealer to schedule an appointment to fix the problem.
