According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) San Antonio auto accident victims need to be aware that the 2009 model year Nissan Sentra automobile may have a defective master cylinder. This defect may result in the vehicle having a much longer stopping distance than originally designed. Unsuspecting owners may apply their brakes in a fashion that would be considered reasonable or normal under the circumstances, only to find that the vehicle is not stopping.
Therefore, if you are struck by a 2009 Nissan Sentra it is possible that the automobile manufacturer is liable because of its defective product. Also, if the owner of the Sentra had the vehicle recently serviced it may be possible to hold the dealer responsible for not replacing the defective part. If you own a Nissan Sentra and have been injured in a vehicle crash that may have been caused by brake failure, you may have the right to seek compensation against the manufacturer.
