Nissan is recalling a whole bunch of Altimas because their hoods can fly open at any time. 625,000 cars, in fact. That’s a lot of latches that aren’t latchin’. Nissan says the problem is with a secondary latch that sticks when the hood is closed.
Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know about the recall:
- The issue affects 2013-2015 Altimas manufactured between March 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014.
- The same defect was already recalled last year in 220,000 other Altimas.
- Nissan has admitted they have no idea how to fix the problem or when the recall will begin. So helpful!
