2013-18 Nissan Altima
Manufacturer: Nissan North America
Number of vehicles affected: 1,831,818
Report Date: May 28, 2020
Issue: Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2018 Nissan Altima vehicles. If the primary hood latch is inadvertently released, there is an increased likelihood that the secondary hood latch may corrode over time. Corrosion to the secondary latch may cause it to bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed. If the primary latch is inadvertently released again and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Solution: The remedy for this recall is still under development. Nissan will provide an interim notice to instruct owners how to properly maintain the latch and include a reminder to fully close the hood and engage the primary hood latch each time before driving. This recall is expected to begin June 22, 2020. Contact: Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.
