2004 Nissan Altima S 2.5 from North America
A Nissan mistake
Well when I first got the car, it was fine,
then I noticed that the heat would get cold at a idle, so I took it in to have it checked out, and I needed to replace the radiator.
That fixed that problem, then the check engine light came on. It needed a new air sensor.
Fixed that, then its transmission started slipping. Had them check it out. They said to get it flushed.
Got that done, it calmed it down a little bit, then one day the trans just dropped out of gear and my car wouldn't move. I had it towed into Nissan, and they said I needed a whole new transmission that cost me 3500 dollars.
Then the upper ball joints went bad, then it kept blowing headlights, then the door creaks, and there's still a strange knocking sound at idle.
Ever since the day I bought this car, I put over 6,000 dollars in repairs into it, that's after I paid 26,000 for the car.
I have had nothing but problems with this car. I also have a Mitsubishi Eclipse, it's a 92 with 190,000 miles on it, and I haven't had so much as a hiccup with that car.
I thought Nissan was supposed to be one of the best cars out there? What happened here?
Other than that, the car is kinda comfy, and it has good power. That's about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
