FRANKLIN, Tenn.—Nissan North America Inc. voluntarily is recalling 123,308 2013 Nissan Altimas to inspect the cars' temporary spare tires for a possible over- or underinflation condition.
Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and adjust the spare tire pressure, as necessary, free of charge, the auto maker said. The recall is expected to begin May 3.
Nissan is blaming the problem on a malfunctioning pressure regulator on a spare tire inflation machine at the company's assembly plant in Canton, Miss. In addition, the pressure gauge used to check pressure was not calibrated correctly. These issues were corrected March 26, Nissan said.
