Since I have owned the car, several things have gone wrong. Cosmetically, though the upholstery and seating have held up very well, all four of the cloth panels on the doors have begun to become loose.
The black coloring on the air conditioning panel, as well as, the power window panel has begun to wear to white, as well.
On the exterior, though there is no rust and this car has never seen a garage, the front bumper paint is beginning to peel off. The color of the car still is there, but the gloss has receded.
Mechanically, the car has been fairly sound. Every single time, it starts right up; however, there are a few notable problems.
When the temperature falls below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, the engine knocks after about 10 minutes of driving. The car doesn't lose any power, and can be driven normally as long as the radio is turned up to cover the annoying nature of the click.
The car shifts rough between the first and second gears, as well.
The master cylinder on the brakes makes noise, though the brakes still stop the vehicle on a dime.
The power window motors/regulators have all gone bad, too.
The automobile also idles rough, and once in a blue moon cuts out temporarily at stoplights; however, it has never actually stalled and left me having to start it back up.
The gas gauge has also broken, though the light will still come on to tell you you need to visit the local gas station within a few more miles of driving.
Finally, the air conditioning does not work. The fan blows the appropriate amounts of air on all four speeds, it just isn't cold. Heat works better than our 2005 Altima, though.
