2002 Nissan Sentra. While driving on the highway the car shut off, took the car to a mechanic. Went on the Nissan website and found two recalls, they were engine control module case holder and head lamp adjuster. Then, took car into dealership, they ran VIN # and they found three recalls, one was on the foam on the engine control module and the other two were unknown. One of the recalls would cause the vehicle to shut down or cut off. Took the car into the dealership on Friday August 19, 2005. They did not repair due to warranty issues. Spoke to Consumer Affairs office of Nissan and they said this car would not be fixed by Nissan without cost. The car has not been repaired and it is still at the dealership.
