Nissan recalling 20,000 Altima sedans

Nissan said that it is recalling 20,000 Altima sedans from the 2011 and 2012 model years due to a issue with a transverse link bolt that might not have been torqued to the proper specification. Models affected by the recall include Altima sedans built between April 25 and June 10 at the Canton, Miss., plant are affected by the recall.

The National High Traffic Safety Administration says that the bolt could come loose while the vehicle is being driven and if it comes out completely, the driver may experience difficulty controlling the direction of the vehicle, which could in turn result in a crash.

To fix the issue, Nissan will replace the transverse link bolts and nuts and tighten them to the proper specification.

Owners can call Nissan at (800) 647-7261.
