2012 Nissan Altima Recalls
These vehicles may have been assembled with transverse link bolts and power steering rack bolts that were not torqued to proper specification. The affected bolts could become loose and fall out, which may lead to a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will tighten the bolts to the proper torque specifications to correct this concern.
A propellant with an incorrect specification may have been used during assembly of the side curtain airbags. As a result, one or both side curtain airbags may not deploy in the event of a crash, which can increase the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the side curtain airbag assembly as necessary to correct this concern.
Fifty-four vehicles are being recalled because the airbag control unit (ACU) was assembled incorrectly. As a result, the airbags may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash. This could increase the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the airbag control unit to correct this concern.

my 2012 2.5s has been a great car.36,000 mi. and not one mechanical problem.plenty of pickup,rides great but,as mentioned, doesn't like cross winds. my only complaint is the paint on black hood is chipping alot even with several coats of mothers wax.can'rate the paint highly. otherwise,love the car.
Have had this car for one yr now (2.5), just took it on a 6 hr trip with 5 people,luggage,etc. Car was flawless, drove 360 miles on less than one tank of gas! Very respectable, especially with all the added weight.
The 2012 20th anniversay edition is The Best car on the midsize sedan market today. Value second to none. Suspension could be upgraded.
