ERJ staff report (BC)
Detroit – Nissan Motor Co. is recalling 123,308 Altima sedans made in the United States because their spare tires may be over- or underinflated, reports ABC News.
Altimas from the 2013 model year that were made between 21 March and 26 March.
Tires that are significantly over- or underinflated can increase the risk of an accident, but Nissan says it has no reports of incidents related to the defect, which was discovered by a dealer.
Nissan blamed the issue on a malfunctioning pressure regulator at its Canton, Missouri plant. The equipment has since been repaired.
The company will notify owners beginning on 3 May. Dealers will inspect spare tires and adjust the tire pressure free of charge.
