Nissan Altima Recalls
The airbag system uses a sensor in the front passenger seat to detect if the seat is occupied by an adult. The affected vehicles are being recalled because this sensor, part of the occupant classification system (OCS), may incorrectly identify the passenger seat as empty when it is actually occupied by an adult. When the passenger seat is determined to be empty, the passenger airbag is disabled. Failure of the passenger airbag to properly deploy when necessary would increase the risk of injury to someone seated in the passenger seat in the event of an accident. Dealers will update the OCS software to correct this concern.
If the tires are not at the correct pressure while the vehicle is driven tire failure may result. These vehicles are being recalled because the spare tire may not have had the correct air pressure at the time of vehicle assembly. If the spare tire is used with the incorrect air pressure it could fail, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers with check and adjust the air pressure in the spare tire to correct this concern.
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.

I'm considering a 2005 altima from a honda dealership, but it has 163,000 miles on it. The previous owner only had maintenance check-ups. No big accidents, just lots of highway driving. Would it be work 6 thou?
I have a 2006 Nissan Altima and my gear shift gets stuck frim time to time, here recently it got stuck and I forced the gear shift into to drive, the next day when I got in it to drive to work, it wont shift into R, N, or D. My vehicle is stuck in park when the gear shift moves to Drive, what could cause this and how can I get it fixed.
I love my Nissan Altima! Due to extreme wear and tear caused by myself through its "so far" ten year life span, I've had a few usual 120k mile issues but nothing that's caused me to want another car. Built to last, this Altima will stay with me till the day it dies and I have a feeling it'll be my 15-month-old daughter's first car! Its been through hell and back, literally, but I am very happy...
