Nissan is recalling a lot more than one.8 million sedans globally due to a issue with the secondary hood latch. Specifically, the hood can get stuck in the open placement immediately after becoming opened and then shut. The the greater part of the recalled motor vehicles are in the United States and Canada.
The campaign requires Altima sedans from 2013 to 2018 product-yrs. In Canada, forty nine,225 motor vehicles are afflicted by the campaign becoming introduced by Nissan.
According to Nissan, corrosion on the 2nd latch may not hold the hood shut when the vehicle is in motion. Transportation Canada describes the issue as follows:
“Over time, corrosion could result in the secondary hood latch to adhere in the open placement immediately after it is applied. If this takes place, and the main hood latch is unveiled, the hood may open quickly when driving.”
