Nissan to Recall Altimas

Nissan is recalling nearly 930,000 Altima midsize cars worldwide—some for a third time—to fix a latch problem that could let the hood fly open while the car is moving. The new recall covers cars from the 2013 to 2015 model years, including 846,000 in the US that were made at factories in Smyrna, Tennessee, AP reported. Nissan says paint can flake off the latch, exposing bare metal. Over time, the latches can rust and cause the secondary hood latch to remain open.  If the main latch is not closed and the car is driven, the secondary latch may not hold the hood down, Nissan said in documents posted Friday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website. Nissan says in two previous recalls in 2014 and 2015, dealers adjusted latches and applied lubricant. But if the lubricant was not put on evenly, the problem could persist. Nissan will notify owners and replace the latches for free, starting in mid-February.  It is unknown if Iranian Nissan Altimas will be recalled in this current costly exercise.
