Nissan Recalling 2012-2013-MY Altimas

October 23, 2012

WASHINGTON – Nissan North America is recalling 13,919 2012-2013 model-year Altima vehicles because their transverse link bolts and power steering rack bolts may not have been torqued to the proper specification, according to the NHTSA

As a result, the affected bolts could loosen and fall out, raising the risk of vehicle control loss. The recall affects Altimas manufactured from May 10, 2012 through July 26, 2012.

To remedy the problem, Nissan dealers will tighten the bolts to the proper torque specifications. This safety recall is expected to get under way around Oct. 29.

Vehicle owners can reach Nissan at 1-800-647-7261.
