NISSAN ALTIMA Structure Body Trunk Lid problems : 1.
I Just Purchased A 2005 nissan altima From Cooper nissan In Easton, Pa. Problem: The Trunk Lid Is Poorly Designed And It Will Not Stay Up On A Sloping Driveway.*ak When I Purchased The Car And Opened The Trunk On My Driveway. The Trunk Lid Would Not Stay Up, When Parked On My Driveway. About A 15 Degree Incline. The Trunk Lid Has Fallen On Me Several Times But I Was Not Cut. I Contacted The Cooper Service Dept And They Ordered New Torsion Bars. After They Were Installed It Appeared To Work. On 8/14/04 I Washing Vacuuming Out My Trunk. The Trunk Lid Fell Down On My And Caused A Puncture Wound To The Back Of My Head And The Blood Started Flowing&. Eventually With A Compress The Blood Flow Stopped After About An Hour But The Headache Lasted For Hours! I Called The Cooper Service Dept And They Essentially Said” They Couldn’t Do Anything, Thats The Way Its Designed- Sorry” I Then Called The National nissan Consumer Affairs Dept And They Reviewed My Complaint And Suggested A Course Of Action Of Checked My Car Against Others On The Lot And To Replace The Torsion Bars As Needed. But I Had Already Done That. And Their Final Postion Was ” Thats The Way Its Designed And Thats All They Could Do, Sorry It Doesn’t Work On Your Driveway – You’ll Just Have To Hold Up The Lid When You Use The Trunk” And What Happens When You Need Two Hands To Put Something In Your Trunk??? I Have Repeatly Asked For A Cheap , Easy Fix To Add Additional Strength To The Trunk Lid But I Been Stalled By The nissan Personnel. They Don”t Even Want To Try To Solve The Problem. I Don’t Care If It Was An Offical nissan Fix, I Just Wanted A Fix. So That I Can Safely Use My Trunk Without Being Injured.
