Nissan (NSANY) has recalled over 1.8 million Altima sedans because they may have a faulty hood latch that could release unintentionally while driving.

The recall affects 2013 to 2018 Nissan Altimas that may have corrosion on the secondary latch that could cause it to bind and remain in the unlatched position even when the hood is closed. The primary latch could then inadvertently release without the secondary hood latch being engaged, causing the hood to open unexpectedly open while driving, which could increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan said it does not have a repair for the recall at this point but is providing an interim notice to Altima owners on how to properly maintain the latch. The automaker is also including a reminder to fully close the hood and engage the primary latch each time the vehicle is driven.

The recall notices are expected to begin rolling out on June 22.

The recall is a secondary notice to Altima owners that may have had their hood latch repaired from a previous recall. Even if those repairs have been completed, the current recall still applies to the affected vehicle, Nissan said.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.

Shares of Nissan stock were up 5.40% as of 10:54 a.m. EDT on Friday.
