RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling seat belts on 1997 Altimas because certain buckle assemblies were produced with a "buckle base" that was improperly heat treated, which may cause the "buckle base" to be brittle. The seat belts may not restrain an occupant during a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the buckle assemblies.

Engine, May 15, 1996
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan has recalled 1990-1994 Maxima and 1990-1992 Stanza models because a mixture of mud and salt may get trapped between the fuel filler tube and wheel housing, which can cause corrosion. This can lead to fuel leakage and a possible fire. Also, the left rear seat belt retractor is mounted to the wheel housing, and in the event of significant corrosion, the mounting could fail in a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and corrective action will be taken depending upon the extent of the corrosion.

Models : Nissan Quest

Brakes, February 20, 1995
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Nissan is recalling 1995 Altimas because the brake hose for the right rear wheel was routed incorrectly and may make contact with a suspension component, causing abrasion to the hose and eventual leakage. A leaking brake hose reduces braking capability, increases stopping distance, and increases the risk of an accident. Dealers will replace or re-route the right rear brake hose.
