Nissan has issued a recall for some 13,000 Versa Note subcompact hatchbacks after finding problems with bolts in the back of the vehicle.

According to automaker, bolts holding the rear seat back latches may not be strong enough, and this could increase the injury risk for back-seat passengers in a crash.

“Other bolts that secure the body to the undercarriage may not have been tightened enough or could be missing in rare cases. That could weaken the car’s rear-crash performance,” The Associated Press reported.

The recall affects the 2014 model-year cars built in Mexico before July 5 and distributed mainly in North America.

No crashes or injuries were reported due to these problems, Nissan said.

Owners will be notified in mid-August, and dealers will check the bolts and fix or replace them.
