The Japanese car manufacturer Nissan has announced, on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website, the recalling of 20.000 units of the 2011 – 2012 Altima model in the United States.
According to the announcement made by the car manufacturer, the 2011 – 2012 Altima sedans might have transverse link bolts that weren’t properly tightened and this could allow the bolt to become loose and cause a vibration or a rattling noise. But if the bolt comes out completely, the driver won’t be able to control the vehicle too easily.
Even though the recall will affect 20.000 cars, the defect found on the 2011 – 2012 Altimas didn’t result in an accident, according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The defect which led to the recall was discovered on June the 6th and Nissan Motor Co. has notified the dealers on July 18, which will announce owners starting from this Monday.
