Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—July 30, 2011
Summary: Nissan is recalling certain model year 2011 – 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan vehicles manufactured from April 25, 2011, through June 10, 2011 at the Canton, Mississippi plant. The transverse link bolt may not have been torqued to the proper specification. This condition could cause the bolt to become loose while the vehicle is being driven, creating a rattling noise and vibration.
Consequence: If the bolt comes out completely, the driver may experience difficulty controlling the direction of the vehicle which could result in a crash.
Remedy: Nissan will replace the transverse link bolts and nuts and tighten them to the proper torque specification free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or before August 1, 2011. Owners may contact Nissan at 800-647-7261.
Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
