Rust streams in the paint after 1-year - not covered under warranty??
By kkostelic on
2012 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I love most of the car; however just after a year rust started streaming down the trunk lid just under the horizontal chrome piece above the license plate.
Obvious this is resulted from either poor assembly, or poor workmanship.
One would anticipate that this would be a warranty issue, however trips to the dealership, their body shop (that shared the same opinion as I), plus calling the 1-800-Nissan1, the answer was we dont cover this.
I've had 18 cars, and buy two vehicles every 3 years..this being my first Nissan.
Nevertheless, I've never had paint issues such as this!!
I wont be buying Nissan again..not because of their vehicles, but their poor warranty .
