Nissan Sentra Owners Manual: Off-road recovery

If the right side or left side wheels unintentionally leave the road surface, maintain control of the vehicle by following the procedure below. Please note that this procedure is only a general guide.

The vehicle must be driven as appropriate based on the conditions of the vehicle, road and traffic.

  1. Remain calm and do not overreact.
  2. Do not apply the brakes.
  3. Maintain a firm grip on the steering wheel with both hands and try to hold a straight course.
  4. When appropriate, slowly release the accelerator pedal to gradually slow the vehicle.
  5. If there is nothing in the way, steer the vehicle to follow the road while vehicle speed is reduced. Do not attempt to drive the vehicle back onto the road surface until vehicle speed is reduced.
  6. When it is safe to do so, gradually turn the steering wheel until both tires return to the road surface. When all tires are on the road surface, steer the vehicle to stay in the appropriate driving lane.
