This particular year was littered with mechanical problems.
My Nissan Altima has had nothing but problems since I purchased it from the dealership. The engine has had to be replaced and many parts have needs replacement. I understand that vehicles need maintenance, but this is excessive. The interior has also not held up well. The paneling around the air conditioner has cracked from heat and the cover over the gauges has also come undone. It does not get great gas mileage for a sedan and the gas gauge is also not functioning properly. The plus sides are that the car does have decent space and that the tires and brakes have lasted a considerable amount of time.
