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


27,000 miles and already had a check engine light and whining from the transmission. After being told a new transmission was being ordered. Nissan changed their mind and upgraded a computer program. A few weeks later while on vacation the transmission began to whine again and the car lost power. I am currently in middle of arguing the need for a transmission replacement. When I first bought the car, I requested new brakes due to squealing . It only took three returns and an attitude for Nissan to correct this action. I never owned a Nissan before and most likely never will again. I never had such a hard time getting quality service after such a major purchase

Best Features

Good looking vehicle when loaded. Interior has exceptional options with exception to the comfort from jerking transmission

Worst Features

Take care of customers in the first attempt instead of trying to do cheap repairs with an attempt to try and outlast the warranty.
