Recall Alert: 2013-2015 Nissan Altima

2013 Nissan Altima

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 625,000 model-year 2013-15 Nissan Altima vehicles manufactured March 1, 2013, to December 31, 2014. This is an expansion of a previous recall and the number of vehicles affected could change. "Nissan is continuing to investigate the number of vehicles involved and will update the affected population when final numbers are available," the automaker said in a statement to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Problem: In these vehicles, the secondary hood latch could remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed. If the primary latch is released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: According to NHTSA, the manufacturer has not yet provided a remedy plan.

What Owners Should Do: Nissan has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-647-7261or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
