Nissan said today that it may halt production of its vehicles in Tennessee and Mexico because of a parts shortage from Hitachi Ltd.

The company has not yet decided to stop production as of now, Toshiyuki Shiga, Nissan’s chief operating officer told Automotive News. If production does come to a halt, it could mean a loss of 15,000 vehicles. Production in Japan will stop on July 14 to July 16 because of the parts delay.

The part in question is an engine control unit that wasn’t delivered on time. The supplier said that integrated circuits needed were not available at the time.

"We’re working around the clock to try and minimize any inconvenience to our customers," Shiga said at the launch of the fourth-generation March compact car.

"For now, we’re still gauging when and whether we would need to halt production in the United States."

If Nissan do decide to stop production, the first models affected might be the Altima and the Sentra .

Looks can indeed be deceiving and if you watch this new Nissan Canada commercial for the Sentra SE-R , you would think that the cars that were used during filming were actual Nissan vehicles.

Ok, that last statement isn’t entirely true and only somebody with a warped sense of dimensions would think that the car used in the ad is a real Sentra SE-R. Memo to you buddy: those are 1/10th scale RC models of the Sentra SE-R.

The more you watch the ad though, the more those cars begin to look like the real thing. Then again, Nissan isn’t exactly a neophyte when it comes to making commercials using RC vehicles so we shouldn’t at all be surprised that they dusted off an old marketing trick to promote their new Sentra SE-R.

If it works, it works. We shouldn’t be blaming Nissan for not coming out with something new to attract our attention. Rather, we should be blaming ourselves for continuing to enjoy something these guys have already done before. And to be honest, we can’t get enough of the commercial.

Top Speed is proud to have been handed the keys to our favorite econobox, the Nissan Sentra, especially when it is the top of the line SL version. Our well-equipped Economy sedan came with leather, a continuously variable automatic transmission, AM/FM/XM radio and some stylish 16 inch inch rims and Bluetooth; quite a bargain at just over $22,000. Gaining entry into the vehicle is facilitated by the Nissan Intelligent key that can remain in your pocket throughout the duration of your commute.

After all, that’s what the Nissan Sentra is all about. Being an affordable and reliable transportation option. This compact four door sedan is the perfect vehicle for new car buyers starting out in the world of automobile ownership. Our Sentra’s simple and modern design redefines what the econobox has to be. One thing is for certain, Nissan has always done a good by their compact sedan and the Sentra SL is no different.

According to Nissan, economy cars don’t have to look boring anymore. In an attempt to deliver go fast style at an affordable rate the Japanese automaker is introducing their newest edition to the Sentra family. The latest of seven available Sentra options, the SR model, combines the physical attributes of the high-performance SE-R and 200 HP Spec V models at a price only $1000 above the base model Sentra, the FE+ 2.0 that comes with 15 inch steelies and no ABS.

The car is officially known as the Nissan Sentra FE+ 2.0 SR and is scheduled to go on sale nationwide on April 17th of this year. Priced at only $17,760 the SR model costs the same at the well optioned FE+ 2.0 S that comes with a continuously variable transmission.

Pretty much everything that makes the SR special is cosmetic. The owner can choose from six colors for their SR, including those colors once reserved exclusively for the SE-R and Spec V models. Starting up front there is a Sentra SE-R styled front bumper complete with a sports inspired mesh grill and dark chrome accents surrounding the headlights. Lower side skirts borrowed from the SE-R help to close the gap between the vehicle and the pavement. Sitting on top of the trunk is a sporty looking spoiler straight from an SE-R. Differentiating the SR from ordinary Sentras are smoked taillight housings. The molded lip at the bottom of the rear bumper resembles the SE-R’s except that on the SR it is slightly raised in the middle. Finishing off the sporty looking Sentra is the proprietary SR badge on the right side of the trunk.
