Enough Is Enough
By Had Enough on
Vehicle
2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
Had the car for about six months with less than 3000 miles. Car refused to start. Took it to the dealer who told me there was nothing wrong. Same thing happened the following week. My garage guy told me it was the brake switch and is a common problem with Nissan and there may be a recall. Nissan service department either didn't know or refused to admit there was a problem. They also told me the battery was low which was ridiculous after such a short time. Agrees with what others have said about battery drain. They replaced the switch and the battery. I'm waiting to see what happens now. Bottom line is stay away. The electronic ignition stinks and the car's electronics drain the battery.
Suggested Improvements
Recall the model and fix the brake switch. Install a heavier duty battery if possible. I'll never buy another Nissan.

I am having a similar problem with my 09 altima. Was it the brake switch for you? How much did it cost to repair? Thanks!
