Affected Cars

RepairPal Expert Overview

Summary:

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.
