Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,700 model-year 2019 Nissan Altima sedans
The Problem: The brake switch bracket may be in the incorrect location, which may cause the brake switch to remain on. If the brake switch remains in the on position, the brakelights will remain illuminated when the brakes are not being pressed, which could confuse other drivers. Additionally, the transmission shift lever may be moved out of the Park position without the brake pedal being pressed, allowing the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and install a new brake pedal, as needed, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will begin notifying owners by the end of May. Owners can call the automaker at 800-867-7669, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
