Nissan North America is recalling 2,407 model year 2020-2021 Altimas.

The tie rod ball joint fastener was not tightened properly, which could result in the tie rod ball joint detaching from the steering knuckle.

A detached tie rod ball joint can cause a loss of steering control, and increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will tighten the left and right-side tie rod ball joint fasteners, or install new fasteners -- as necessary -- free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin March 31, 2021.

Owners may contact Nissan customer service at (800) 867-7769. Nissan's number for this recall is PC795.
