Just a few days ago Subaru issued yet another recall for their troubled Forester, and we’re sad to say there is now a Nissan and Honda recall, which will affect some models of the 2013 Altima and the 2012-2013 Fit Sport
These Nissan and Honda recalls includes more than 140,000 vehicles in all for the US and Canada. Let’s look at the 2013 Nissan Altima recall first; there are 123,308 affected because of an issue with a pressure regulator, so there is a possibility that some of these vehicles could have an over or under-inflated spare tire.
Once you are notified you will be able to take your affected vehicle to your Nissan dealer, where they will be able to check the tire pressure for you. We’re sure not many of you will even bother to contact Nissan, as they would be able to resolve this Nissan Altima recall themselves. More details can be found here.
Next we have the 2012-2013 Honda Fit Sport recall, which involves 43,782 vehicles in the US and another 2,000 in Canada due to excessive yaw rates when the vehicle is under braking. The reason for this is because there’s an issue with the software that controls the Vehicle Stability Assist.
Honda says that it only affects certain Honda Fit Sport models fitted with a particular tire, although they have yet to inform us what tire this is. Honda will contact you during the middle of May to arrange to have the vehicles stability control software updated to rectify this issue. If you have any concerns then you might want to contact your local Honda dealer, or visit their website.
You can also run a Honda recall check by entering your Honda VIN here.
