2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Purchased my Altima with 75K miles, it now has 191K miles.
Nothing really major that I can complain about, it's taken my abuse very well.
My CONS would be:
Cam Shaft sensor failed around 150K miles.
Both rear calipers seized around 100K miles.
#4 cylinder ignition coil failed around 175K miles.
BOSE CD changer is completely unreliable.
Pop out gasoline door is horrendous, I need to use a prybar to get it open.
Around 150K miles the car started having intermittent difficulties with engine starts...takes 10-15 seconds to start.
Mechanic doesn't have a good solution to the problem.
Door actuators seize when it's cold out.
Lots of space, driver's side is nice and big.
It takes abuse like a champ, I performed very little maintenance over my 7 years.
If something as simple as a Cam Shaft sensor fails, give people an easy way to detect and solve the problem!
I did not enjoy towing the car and paying a mechanic around $250 to fix a $60 part.
There's got to be a better solution here.
