Nissan North America is recalling 846,000 model year 2013-2015 Altimas manufactured March 6, 2012, to December 31, 2014.
The secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed.
If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while the vehicle is being driven, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
What to do
These vehicles were previously included in recalls in 2014 and 2015, however the previous remedy plan may not have been performed consistently to remove the safety risk.
To correct this issue, Nissan will re-notify all affected owners and dealers will replace the hood latch with a new one, free of charge.
The recall began on February 17, 2016.
Owners may contact Nissan customer service at (800) 647-7261.
