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.
