Beware of brakes!
By ireners on
Vehicle
2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
My daughter and I owned the same car. Both of them needed new rotors with under 20,000 miles even though pads were in great shape. $600 repair, not covered by warranty as brakes are considered a wear and tear item. Discussed issue with service mgr. and was told that this is a very common problem with Altimas. Buyer Beware! Traded mine in for a Honda. Would not buy another one. Nissan is aware of problem, but won't correct it.
Suggested Improvements
Redesign of braking system. Recall to repair brakes at Nissan's expense.

Nissan did have a customer assistance programs for a brake issue in some Altimas. Check out Nissanassist.com. Or a different Nissan dealer. Sometimes repairs already paid for can be reimbursed. BTW- Most surveys have NOT indicated a particular prob with Altima brakes. Bad rotors with good pads is unusual, particularly on 2 cars. I've heard of this when wheel bolts are badly over-tightened which warps the rotors.
