Nissan is recalling 123,308 model-year 2013 Altima sedans due to a problem with the inflation of spare tires, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Affected vehicles were manufactured between March 21, 2012, and March 26, 2013. The vehicles' spare tires may have been significantly over- or underinflated; this could cause failure without warning, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA stated.
Nissan will begin notifying owners May 3, and dealers will inspect and adjust the spare-tire pressure for free. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.Related
