Need Help! A/C & Battery
By Operational Problems on


2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Getting foul smell from A/C. Have to open window it's so bad. We leave air circulation on to dry out, but this does not help. Dealer suggested scented spray for $82 every 6 mos. Possibly mold & not good for health. Need help! Also, battery too weak for operational demands. Accidentally left push button on, battery dies within 30 minutes. Dealer will not provide more powerful battery for this high end model. Also, vents on dashboard reflect in windshield restricting your view.

Best Features

Nice design, road noise ok, dual controls great, handles well especially turn ratio.

Worst Features

Car should have a recall on the A/C foul odor - most likely hazardous to health, probably stagnant moisture in A/C system creating mold. Need changes to reflection of vents in windshield as it restricts your vision. Needs more powerful battery

From everthing your saying it sounds like you have what is called a " Flood Car " Which means it probably is loaded with mold and other crap from being flooded then dried out for resale.
