2013 Nissan Altima Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag may not deploy as needed in a crash due to the installation of an improper control unit for the Occupant Classification System (OCS). Because of this, the OCS may not properly detect an adult in the passenger front seat, instead classifying the passenger as a child. When the OCS does this, it prevents the passenger frontal air bag from deploying, attempting to protect child occupants. This would increase risk of injury to adult passengers.
The passenger frontal air bag may fail to deploy in an accident. This can occur due to the passenger seat occupant classification system not being properly calibrated, and may not detect a passenger present in the seat as appropriate. This would increase risk of occupant injury in an accident.
The hood may open while driving the vehicle, resulting in the loss of visibility and increasing risk of a crash.
A malfunction may occur in the occupant classification system, which determines if an adult is seated in the passenger front seat. If this occurs, the passenger front air bag may not deploy as needed in a crash, resulting in occupant injury.
The hood when closed may not latch fully due to a binding secondary hood latch. This can cause the hood to open unexpectedly while driving.
The hood may not latch fully, which can result in the hood opening unexpectedly while driving.
The passenger frontal airbag may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash.
The 2013 Nissan Altima's spare tire may have been improperly inflated when the vehicle was assembled.
The passenger front air bag may deactivate unintentionally because sensors of the occupant detection system were manufactured out of specification.
Certain bolts in the front suspension/steering may not have been properly tightened during vehicle assembly. The affected bolts could become loose and fall out.
