Nissan recently recalled over one-thousand 2008 Altimas relating to a loose bolt which could lead to difficulty controlling the car if it fell out- this includes Nissan models driven by Chicagoland drivers.
According to NHTSA's report, the left-side front suspension transverse link bolt in the 2008 Altimas may not have been tightened to specification at the factory. “This condition could cause the bolt to become loose while the vehicle is being driven,” it said. “If the bolt were to come out, the driver may experience difficulty controlling the direction of the vehicle, which could result in a crash.”
If you own the aforementioned vehicle, have it checked out immediately by your dealer. Nissan dealers will tighten the bolt free of charge. Owners can contact Nissan for more information at (800) 647-7261.
