Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. has recalled about 20,000 Altima sedans to fix a potential problem that could lead to steering difficulties and cause accidents. The recall involves 2011 and 2012 model year Altimas built at its Canton, Miss., plant from April 25 to June 10. It was reported on NHTSA’s website that the transverse link bolt may not have been tightened to the proper specification. No other Nissan or Infiniti models are involved.
According to a Nissan spokesman, no accidents or injuries have been reported in relation to the issue. The bolt in the Altimas affected could loosen during driving, creating a rattling and vibration, according to the NHTSA website. If the bolt were to come out completely, the driver might have trouble controlling the car’s direction and that could result in a crash. Nissan will replace the bolts and tighten them to the proper specification, according to the NHTSA website.
