Nissan Recalling 870,000 Altimas for Faulty Hood Latches, Again
Nissan announced Friday that it would recall about 870,000 Altimas for faulty hood latches, the third time the automaker has recalled the cars since 2014, according to Reuters.
The affected models are 2013-2015 Altimas, whose secondary hood latches could rust and be ineffective at keeping 20-some square feet of sheet metal from blocking your view of the road.
The automaker attempted to fix the issue in February 2015 and September 2014, but like any good owner of a General Motors 3800 engine will tell you, anything worth doing is worth doing over and over and over again.
According to Reuters, the recall will cover 846,000 cars in the U.S. and about 25,000 cars in Canada, which begs the question: Is there some sort of Bermuda Triangle for Nissan Altimas in the Great Lakes? How are there not more Altimas in Canada?
