The Problem: Certain Nissan Altima sedans may have been sold with incorrectly inflated spare tires. The tire may be over- or underinflated, which could reduce its grip level and increase the chances of a failure if the spare tire is used.

The Fix: Nissan dealers will inspect and correct the pressure for free. The recall will begin May 3. Owners can contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 for more information.

Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 123,308 2013 Nissan Altima sedans that were produced from March 21, 2012 to March 26, 2013 at the Canton, Mississippi plant.

The Problem: The electronic stability control may be programmed to allow excessive yaw if the car is equipped with certain types of tires and the driver steers sharply. That means the car would “slide” more to the side than is recommended by federal guidelines, which could increase the risk of a driver losing control or rolling the vehicle.

The Fix: Honda dealers will reprogram the stability control software for free, in a recall action starting May 17. Owners who want more information on the recall can call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 regarding recall number S99.

Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 43,782 2012-2013 Honda Fit Sport hatchbacks built from May 23, 2011 to March 22, 2013.
