2017 Nissan Altima Recalls

There have been 3 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH Recall Date: 05/27/2020
  • Summary: Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain model year 2013-2018 Nissan Altima vehicles. If the primary hood latch is inadvertently released, there is an increased likelihood that the secondary hood latch may corrode over time.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 1831818
  • Consequence: Corrosion to the secondary latch may cause it to bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed. If the primary latch is inadvertently released again and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
  • Remedy: The remedy for this recall is still under development. Nissan will provide an interim notice to instruct owners how to properly maintain the latch and include a reminder to fully close the hood and engage the primary hood latch each time before driving. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk were mailed July 14, 2020. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. The remedy is expected to become available in the Third Quarter of 2021. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669. Note: Recall 16V-029 remains open for any unremedied 2013-2015 Altimas and this recall applies to all vehicles covered by 16V-029 even if those repairs have already been performed.
  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 20V315000
LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:DOORS:LATCH Recall Date: 12/18/2018
  • Summary: Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2015-2017 Altima vehicles, previously remedied under recall number 17V-040. The door latch-lock cable may not have been routed properly in the rear door when the remedy was applied. As a result, the cable may interfere with the window regulator causing the rear passenger door to unlatch and inadvertently open without warning when the window is lowered.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 341003
  • Consequence: If the rear passenger door opens while the vehicle is moving, the rear passengers have an increased risk of injury.
  • Remedy: Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will secure the latch-lock cables in the correct position using the new remedy procedure, free of charge. The recall began February 5, 2019. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7669.
