The seatbelts on my 2014 Nissan Altima are extremely difficult to latch. Receiving end retracts below the seat level when you try to latch it. Contacted Nissan corporation they told me to bring it to my dealer which was route 23 auto mall, butler New Jersey. Brought it in today to be checked and they told me nothing is wrong with the latching mechanism of the seatbelt. Very dangerous situation. Will never lease/buy another Altima again. Had a 2010 Altima and had no problems with it.

My son lost control of his vehicle due to a seizure, he hit a on coming 4 wheel drive truck partly head on, then another truck T-bone him in the passenger side. During the wreck none of the airbags deployed are the seat belt restrain him. His head went thru the windshield partly and the back of his neck broke off the head rest. He has no related issues of seizures of any kind in the past, no one ticketed for the accident period. We come find out that Nissan manufacture has a recall on this car because of airbags problems. We never received any kind of noticed from the dealer ship are Nissan manufacture period. I' very concern about the safety of this vehicle even being on the road period.
