NISSAN ALTIMA Steering Rack And Pinion problems : 1.
Purchased A 05 altima In June Of 2004. I Have Had Nothing But Problems. I Took The Car In At 19,000 And Told Them My Car Shakes And There Is A Ticking In The Front End. Sounds Like It Is Coming From The Engine. You Can Feel The Shaking In The Seats, Gear Shift And Steering Wheel. Not To Mention The Shaking Continues To Knock My Windows Out Of Place. The Shaking Happens When Your Are Sitting At A Stop Light And While Driving. They Told Me That I Would Need To Replace Tires And Alignment. I Did The Alignment. They Then Said That The Ticking Was Normal And The Shaking Was Normal. So Being A Young Female I Was Took Them For There Word. I Then Was Driving About 35 Mph And The Right Front Tire Blew Out. I Was Able To Pull Over, No One Was Hurt. Called nissan Said Tires Were Not Covered Under Warranty. So I Went To An Outside Tire Dealer To Have Replaced, Was Told Rim Was Bent. Again Called nissan Was Told That Was My Problem. So I Purchased A New Set Of Rims. Just Started To Face The Fact That I Would Have To Deal With The Shaking And Noise. About 2 Months Ago Returned To The Dealer Because Along With The Shaking And Noise Now There Is A Loud Clunking On The Right Passenger Side. Was Told Tires Need To Be Replace, Alignment And Balance. Also Get This Right Front Passenger Rim Bent. Again! Said It Was The Roads. Took To Tire Dealer. Rim Was Bent. He Did His Part, Took It Back To Dealer. They Have Had My Car More Times In The Last 2 Months Then I Care To Remind Myself. But Has Been No Fix To Any Of My Issues. At Closing Of Repair Ticket Was Told Ticking Noise They Did Not Know Where It Was Coming From But They Were Pretty Sure It Was Not The Engine. The Shaking Was From A Broke Rack And Pinion. So Now That I Am Over My 36,000 Mile Warranty. I Need To Pay Over 1300.00 To Have Repaired. I Feel Like This Car Is A Lemon And I Am Now Stuck. I Am Very Upset With This Lack Of Concern nissan Has With My Issues. I Need Help Getting My Car Repaired. *nm
