Nissan has issued a pair of recalls for its new Versa Note compact hatchback to fix problems with bolts installed on several areas of the car. The first recall is for 7,707 Notes from the 2014 model year for loose or missing bolts for the lower body sill. A second recall concerns 7,782 cars – also from 2014 – in which a rear seat latch bolt may have been “manufactured incorrectly,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In both instances, loose or defective bolts could cause injury in the event of a crash. No accidents or injuries have occurred as a result of either of these recalls.
NHTSA has confirmed that a total of about 13,000 cars are affected by the recall. The recalls were the result of a “supplier issue that has since been corrected,” the automaker said in a statement. Owners with cars included in these recalls should contact their dealer, who will fix the issue free of charge. The Versa Note is a small hatchback that recently went on sale to compete against vehicles such as the Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta and Hyundai Accent.
