2002 Nissan Altima S 2.5 from North America
Poorly made and not backed up by Nissan
The radiator cracked wide open across the top and there was no indication that it was hot. The gauge still read normal.
The car started using a lot of oil, like 1 or 2 quarts every third day. It was not leaking out or coming out the exhaust. One day I drove the car in the morning about 11 miles, came home and parked the car. I went out to go to the store six hours later and it would not start. I tried, but it was blubbering,flubbing, like not a normal starting sound. I had it towed to the dealership for repair as I had purchased the extended warranty for $1,500. I thought I was covered, but guess what? They wanted three years of receipts from somewhere that does oil changes. Since my grandfather owns a towing company/garage I did it myself at 3,000 miles. Ultimately they said my #1 cylinder has no compression and #3 is low. And without authorization from the warranty company they could not look any further.
And they charge $110.00 to put it on their machine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
