New Car Nightmare
By JulieQ on

Vehicle

2009 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Since owning this car the following has taken place - both tail lights had to be replaced, carpet replaced, door seal replaced, defective sunroof wind deflector replaced, sunroof drain clogged & caused excessive moisture damage, which resulted in having part of headliner glued back in place and interior musty smell, trunk seals not installed correctly which caused the trunk lid to rub grooves into the bumper, hood had to be adjusted to fix large gaps, console became loose driver's side window seals have gaps, sometimes car idles so loudly it sounds like a diesel. I could go on. In April of 2010, I contacted Nissan Consumer Affairs. Today, they called as said the problems are normal.

Best Features

I love how it handles. It's a smooth ride. The gas mileage is incredible.

Worst Features

Automatic setting for passenger seat. Memory setting for driver seat. Fix the idle noise.
