2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 Excessive Oil Consumption
By evukmanic on
2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
My 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL appears to be part of a recall (NTB06-028) for excessive oil consumption. The car began exhibiting the symptoms of the recall concerning excessive oil burning at 120K miles in late June 2012. The problem started suddenly, burning one quart every 600 miles and with in two weeks one quart every 300-350 miles. Throughout my ownership of the car the vehicle had always been properly maintained at my local Nissan dealer. At 138k miles the vehicle began making a noise that sounded like a bag trapped underneath the car. Just after arriving home, the car exploded in thick, black smoke that billowed from under the hood and into the vehicle through the vents. Recall campai
Favorite Features
I purchased a Nissan based on their reliability reputation and was very pleased with the Altima until it needed major repairs at just 138K miles.
Suggested Improvements
An ineffective recall, excessive oil burning, and repair consisting of a new engine and cat is not acceptable.
