2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Any issues that I have have with my 2009 Altima i just had to google and found them very quickly online.
Three issues, Push start, transmission and leak in the moon roof all were listed as a problem.
Nissan covered all repairs except for the moonroof.
Disappointing because only had 36000 miles as of 2012 and bought the car based on consumer reports.

Best Features

I love having all the controls at my fingertips and bluetooth capability.

Worst Features

Seriously, issue recalls if known problems exist.

How did you get Nissan to pay for the transmission? I have an extended warranty and their aren't paying because I am living in Germany when this happened. Been without my car for 2.5 weeks and have yet to get it fixed. I will fight their little out of country clause, but I would like to have recourse with Nissan as a backup. thanks for any assistance Amanda
