2012-2013 Nissan Altima gets recalled

Somebody at the NHTSA must have heard our complaint about the way we don’t get too many recalls and how we weren’t exactly impressed with the Jeep Patriot’s investigation. They’ve responded by putting the 2012-2013 Nissan Altima through a recall. The matter is quite a serious one and there’s also quite a bad outcome if […]
