Nissan North America Inc. has recalled 640,000 Altima sedans after discovering the cars’ hoods can fly open while in motion. This brings the total number of Nissan and Infiniti vehicles recalled for the defect in the past year to nearly 1.1 million. On March 3, Nissan notified dealerships of the recall after the manufacturer discovered certain model year 2013 through 2015 Altimas contain secondary hood latches that may not fully engage when the hood is closed. The defect increases the risk that it will fly open unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion and cause a crash. According to Nissan, there have been no reports of collisions or injuries caused by the defect.
