Car and Driver: Nissan Recalls Altima for Third Time to Fix Hood Latches

Recommended Posts

Curvy, dramatic styling mimics bigger brother Maxima and gives the Altima an upscale vibe. Engine choices are either a 182-hp 2.5-liter four or a 270-hp 3.5-liter V-6, both with a CVT. The SR infuses a little fun by adding stiffer suspension tuning, paddle shifters, and unique wheels. Forward emergency braking with adaptive cruise control creates a robust active-safety bundle. Overall, the Altima is a capable sedan with a decent options list and a roomy, comfortable cabin. FULL COVERAGE ››

Nissan is recalling 846,000 Altima sedans in the U.S. for faulty hood latches. If this sounds familiar, it’s because this is the third (and hopefully final) time this problem has surfaced.

The 2013-2015 Altima has a secondary hood latch—the one you grab after the hood pops open partially—that may not lock the hood in place. Assembly problems with the actuation lever and improper anti-corrosion coating have contributed to the latches binding and rusting. Since dealers may have made haphazard repairs on the second round of 625,000 cars (that involved grease and bending a lever), Nissan wants to replace all of the hood latches just to be safe. The first recall, initiated in September 2014, involved 220,000 cars from 2013.

In January 2015, Nissan recalled 170,665 late-model Pathfinder and Infiniti JX35/QX60 SUVs for problems with secondary hood latches, which were installed incorrectly so that the hood-release cable would not engage the locking claw.
