2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I bought the car brand new in June, it had to be towed to the dealership because of the sensor (1) in October 2003, in September of 2004 the car stalled out at the light and an 18 wheeler was approaching fast, I thank Jesus for answered pray, the car started up enough to get it out of the way, I had to get another sensor (2) replaced. 2009 all three sensors (3) went out and there was a recall on two of them (Midas found them) but Nissan never sent the notices out nor did they honor them. I fought to get the cost down to $3,000.00 for them to be fixed and 7 months later the crankshaft sensor (4) went out again, they replaced it because it was under the 12 months or 10,000 miles.

Best Features

I didn’t want to run out and purchase another MISTAKE that is why I gave up the $3,000.00, but it all worked out by prayer for my better good.

Worst Features

I had the car detailed and took it to Car Max, my tires were 2 years old and I had a full spare in the trunk with 97,000 miles. Car Max gave me over the excellent condition price in the Kelly Blue Book, so I got back my 3,000 and then some. The service department employees were Very rude at Herb
