New 2005 altima 3.5 Se Bought August 2005 1st Month I Had Noticed A Vibration In The Steering At High Speeds, And The Vehicle Pulling/drifting From Left To Right. This Concern Makes The Vehicle Unsafe To Drive Because You Do Not Have A Sense Of Control When Driving, In Addition When Driving On A Highway For A Long Period Of Time The Vibration In The Wheel Makes Your Hands And Arms Fall Asleep. It Is Always Necessary After An Hour Or Hour And A Half To Pull Over And Give Your Arms/ Hands A Rest. The Dealer Addressed This Concern By Balancing The Wheels By Road Force Balance (corrected Specs – 21lbs Road Force Down To 7lbs) No Alignment Issues Were Noticed. After 3 Tips To The Dealership For The Vibrations I Had Noticed A Clunk In The Front End, It Ended Up Being A Strut That Needed To Be Replaced. With The Next Trip The Dealership The Vibration In The Steering Was Now Evident At All Speeds, It Was Still Drifting, And A New “hum” Had Developed At Random Times While Driving. The Dealer Unable To Verify Any Of My Concerns Suggested That I Go For A Ride With The Service Manger. After That Ride He Suggested That I Have My Tires Swapped For New Ones Of Another Brand. On My Next Trip To The Dealer They Swapped All 4 Of My Tires For Another Brand Name And Re-aligned The Front Suspension And Front End. Throughout The Winter The Car Ran Ok Other Than Some Electrical Problems That Would Kill My Battery And The Rear Pillar Airbags Coming Out. It Was Not Until The Spring That I Was Forced To Bring My Car Down Again For The Vibration In The Steering Wheel And The Clunk In The Front End. The Dealer Could Not Verify Any Clunk In The Front End But Agreed That There Is Again A Vibration And Remedied The Problem By Adjusting The Steering Rack Pre-load. Initially The Vibration Was Reduced, But Within A Month It Was Back. The Service Manager Admitted That Adjusting The Steering Rack Pre-load Was Only A “temporary Fix” A “bandaid For The Problem”. *jb

I Own A 2005 nissan altima, And I Recently Took The Car In Because The Power Steering Seemed To Be Going Out. The Steering Is Very Difficult Once You Turn The Wheel More Than 1/4 To The Right Or Left. When The Weather Is Warmer, The Problem Is Not As Serious; But In Cold Weather, The Car Becomes Very Hard To Steer. The nissan Service Department Indicated The U-joint On The Lower Section Of The Steering Column Is Going Bad And Needs To Be Replaced.

I Recently Experienced My Vehicle Stalling As I Was Driving. It Took Several Minutes For Me To Restart Leaving Me Venerable To A Vehicle Crash. The Same Evening I Learned Of Recall# 07v527000. The Following Day I Brought My Vehicle To A nissan Dealership To Have The Recall Resolved. They Advised The Recall Only Covers Reprogramming Computer Not Replacing Defective Crank Sensor.
