CANTON, Miss.-- Nissan is recalling some Altimas that were made at their Canton, Miss. plant this year.
Almost 14,000 Altimas are now being asked to be taken in for inspection that were made between May 10 and July 21 this year.
The models affected according to officials are the 2012 and 2013 models.
The danger is some of these Altimas could have been equipped with traverse link bolts and power steering rack bolts that weren't torqued to the correct specifications.
What all that means is that these loose bolts could potentially fall out while driving and cause a driver not to have any control over the vehicle. Obviously that's a problem.
To remedy the situation Nissan say they will contact owners affected and dealers will tighten the bolts to the proper torque specifications.
If any owners have questions they can contact Nissan Customer service at 1-800-647-7261 or call the National Highway Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
