Nissan Recalls Over 200,000 Altimas

Hood latch defect could cause an accident

Nissan is recalling over 200,000 2013 Altima midsize vehicles because of a defective secondary hood latch.

Similar to the Chevrolet Spark recall from last week, rust and debris can cause the Altima's secondary hood latch to bind and remain unlocked. If the main hood latch is already unlocked as the car is moving, the hood could open unexpectedly and cause an accident.

Nissan received several reports of damage from opened hoods, but no injuries have been reported.

The manufacturer does not have a confirmed schedule to notify Altima owners, but they did pass on the information to dealers. Dealers will modify, clean, and lubricate the secondary latch lever and joint, replacing the latch assembly if needed.
