2005 Nissan Altima from North America


I would reconsider buying a Nissan.


When braking hard car screeches.

When braking hard car also locks and fishtails because front seems heavy and dips low.

Upon stopping at a light, then hitting the accelerator, the car screeches.

Brakes squeak when slowing down.

When driving on rough surfaces, bridges with steel grating, etc. car is uncontrollable. It seems to glide and float.

Overall performance of car is poor.

General Comments:

The new interior is stylish and very roomy.

The built-in antenna in the window for the radio doesn't work well, there is lots of static.

I have owned 2 previous Altimas which handled great unlike the new one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

What is wrong with your driving that you have to brake so hard? Sounds like you do this often.

Absolutely nothing the car is pretty much brand new.

General Comments:

I absolutely love the look of this car and the unbelievable power the 3.5 has and the way it handles like it is on rails yet takes most bumps like they were nothing. The interior is also top rate in ergonomics and style and most importantly comfort. Each day I get into this car and take her on the highway it just brings a smile to my face. The stock bose stereo is also good too, but I am adding an external amplifier and 2 subwoofers which will be perfect. I hope to have this car for years to come.

Does anyone have any transmission problems? My Altima has 13,000 miles on it and when its cold it shifts really hard. Any time I accelerate to get on the freeway it seems like the transmission slips and jerks really hard. Just wondering if anyone else has had any problems.

Hello I wrote the review I have had similar problems, well not really problems. When I get in the car in real cold weather and start up and drive it shifts a little hard (not too bad though), once it warms up its shifts perfectly. I would just take it to your dealer and have them check it out, otherwise I really love this car, I have put on a little over 5,000 miles with no problems whatsoever.
