Noisy Nissan Altima

I bought a 2015 Nissan Altima in January 2015. Like the car, but it's very noisy! High pitched whining noise is coming from the power steering pump. Streater Smith Conroe said they couldn't fix it. We brought it to Fred Haas in Tomball and they tried fixing it by replacing the steering pump. It help some, but the noise is getting louder by the day. Nissan does not have a fix for it. I hate driving the car because it's so noisy. A man in parking lot heard it walking by and asked what that noise was under the hood! Lots of wind noise. Gas mileage is great, but would rather lose a couple mpg to ride in a quiet car! Very disappointed with Nissan for not helping further with this issue.

This car isn't so bad actually. CVT is nice and efficient. Gives the car much better pick up that most compeitors. Amazing milage well over 30 mpg. Super comfortable seats. More than enough room in front and back for almost any size adult. Great sound system on the base. Nice quite ride despite what critics say about CVT noise. It's only noisy if you rev the engine up to 4000 rpm or so. Handling is above average at best but very smooth effortless power steering. Only complaints are some weird noises this car makes. You can hear the gas slosh around the gas tank if you break hard. And the power steering pump constantly hums. Just pet peeves that don't really affect the cars drive ability. Overall it's every bit as good as a camry or sonata. Just depends on what you prefer. For me it was the money I got mine brand new for just under $19k.

Unsafe at speeds above 60

I purchased a 2015 Altima S from the dealer. Initially upon taking it home we heard a knocking in the engine. Five weeks after we had it, we took a road trip. It was one of the most horrifying experiences of my life. The car wandered and shifted from left to right at higher speeds. Keeping it on the road was a major ordeal and very exhausting. We were happy to make it to our destination and back. Once we got home the car was taken to the deal where it was purchased. The service manager explained that the new electronic steering in the new models was set that way and I would just have to "learn to deal with it." They checked out the car and claimed that nothing was wrong. At this point I would not drive the card off of the lot as I know it is unsafe and very dangerous. I was forced to buy a Rogue and loose thousands of dollars on the deal after owning the car for only 5 weeks and driving it for less than 1,000 miles. My attempts to explain the situation to Nissan Consumer Affairs were useless. Buyer beware!

Great Car for the Money

I purchased this car in October 2014 and have been very pleased with it.. Great gas mileage and the ride is very smooth with no vibrations or excess noise. I don't understand the negative reviews since I have had 2 Altima's now and no major concerns. I did have to replace a speaker cover that was defective and the engine was noisy at 40 to 60 mile per hour but I took it to the dealer and the engine heat shield was loose and once it was repaired the noise was gone... I have had the 3.5 liter engine and the 2.5 liter and both are very good. The 2.5 4 cylinder engine is very powerful and the gas mileage is 30 in town and 39 on the hwy.. I would recommend this car any day when you consider the price and all the extras it has. Like I said I don't know anyone that is unhappy with the Altima and still don't understand the negative feedback on this site..

Just this one more thing UPDATE...

I purchased a 4 cylinder Nissan Altima 2015 in December of last year. The road noise on the freeway is surprisingly loud. The noise seems to be coming from all four wheels right into the cabin. This shouldn't, and probably doesn't, worry Nissan because of the great design of the vehicle and other features. Sadly though, the road and engine noise belies a great appearance. You would expect a much better ride judging from the cost and appearance. Fix that in this 4 cylinder, Nissan, and you will have a real winner! The radio controls are hard to figure out when you want to select a particular station to store in the controls. But I will have to give it a stability compliment after I hit a curb at 30 mph and to my surprise there was absolutely no damage. If you are looking for a better ride though, test the 6 cylinder and compare.
