Nissan North America is recalling 119 2015 model-year Altima and 2016-MY Maxima sedans manufactured Oct. 6-7 because their front brake caliper mounting bolts may not be properly tightened.

As a result, the caliper may detach and reduce braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

Nissan dealers will check the brake caliper mounting bolts and tighten them as necessary. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin in early December. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
