Nissan is set to recall an additional 846,000 Altimas staring in mid-February due to a defect in the cars’ secondary hood latch. According to the recall, the latches contain a defect that makes them more susceptible to corrosion, a problem that could cause them to get stuck in the “open” position. If this happens, any failure of the primary latch could cause the hood to fly open while the car is in motion. After a previous recall designed to re-coat the defective latches failed, Nissan issued this recall to replace the latches altogether, at no cost to their customers.
