Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. is calling back 165,000 ’02 Altima sedans to repair a faulty airbag sensor. Nissan will replace the sensor, used to deploy the airbag, because it doesn’t perform as well as expected in high-speed offset crashes. Nissan decided to conduct the recall after the Altima received a low rating in a crash test. Only Altimas built before March 16 of this year are affected.
