A Misrouted Cable is Opening Altima Doors When They Should Stay Closed

The Altima has doors that are opening when they shouldn’t, such as when you go to roll down the window. And it appears to be due to a mistake on the manufacturing line.

Looks like some is going to be shown the door:

During the Altima [door] trim panel installation, a latch-lock cable inside the door was not routed correctly … [and] the cable can interfere with the window regulator and will inadvertently unlatch the door when the window is opened.

Nissan will recall 341,000 model year 2015-2017 Altimas to fix the issue.
