This year has been a bad year for the auto industry. General Motors has recalled thousands of vehicles for serious safety defects. Now the auto manufacturer Nissan has announced that it will recall 220,000 Nissan Altimas from the 2013 model year. The recall is related to issues with the hood latch mechanism, which can corrode and allow the hood to fly up while the car is in motion.
The problem, Nissan says, is with the secondary hood latch, which can get stuck open when the hood is closed. If the primary hood latch somehow released, drivers can be placed in a dangerous position.
GoldenbergLaw’s Minnesota personal injury lawyers have helped clients hurt by defective products of all sorts. Fortunately, there have been no reported injuries from the hood latch defect so far.
If you own a 2013 Altima, you should bring it to your local Nissan dealer for an inspection. The dealers will replace the latch or remove any debris and corrosion-free of charge.
