Beware of the CVT transmission
By Kevin1964 on


2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Car was very reliable right up until the 36k warranty ran out. Now the car at 40,000 miles needs a new transmission. Nissan will not pay for a rental car, which I feel I shouldn't have to pay. So far customer service when having problems will cause me to never buy another Nissan again. To be fair car gets great gas mileage, fairly comfortable, did perform pretty well up until transmission died. Research the CVT transmission problems before you buy!

Kevin1964, Nissan sent a warranty extension to 60k miles to me on my 07 2.5SL CVT. Yours should have it too. You could try 1-800-NISSAN1. Good luck! Mike

The powertrain warranty on a 2007 Altima is 60mos/60,000 miles. The CVT warranty was extended to 10 years/120,000 miles.
