Engine Failed at 95k miles
By Bob on

Vehicle

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Pre-catalyst came apart at 95k miles after a recall supposedly fixed the problem. The pre-cat came apart and is close enough to the cylinders that it ruined the engine (the 2005+ models have the pre-cat moved farther away to permanently solve this problem). Nissan has rejected all warranty claims on any cars outside of 60k miles. $4600 to fix it. The only permanent fix is an aftermarket header that puts car out of emissions compliance.

Favorite Features

Roomy.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the engine.
