2005 NISSAN ALTIMA Suspension problems & defects.

NISSAN ALTIMA Suspension problems : 9.

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 Took My Car For An Alignment, Only To Be Told That The Rear Sub-frame On My Car Is Bent. Thus, The Wheel Alignment Could Not Be Completed. I Was Told That The Cause Was Either A Rear-end Collision, Damaged During Transport Of The Vehicle To The Dealership, Or A Manufacturers Defect. I Cannot Say Which Of The Latter Two Is The Cause, But I Am Most Certain That It Is Not Due To The First, A Rear-end Collision (or Any Type Of Collision), As This Vehicle Has Not Been In Any Type Of Accident Since Purchased. My 2005 nissan altima Was Purchased As New In March 2005. I Took The Car To The nissan Dealership Where I Purchased The Car. They Have Refused To Look At The Car Without Charge To Me. Therefore, nissan Has Not Inspected My Car. To Add, My Car Is Still Under 36k/36 Months And Should Be Covered Under The Warranty. I Just Pray That I Am Not On The Highway Should Anything Give Due To The Sub-frame Being Bent. An Official Complaint Was Filed With nissan‘s Headquarters, Which I Am Still Waiting To Receive A Response. *nm

I Discovered Today That My Front Passenger Floorboard Is Completely Rusted Out, I Mean If It Wasn’t For The Interior Carpet I Could Put My Whole Arm Down In The Hole. I’ve Done Research And It Seem To Be A Very Common Problem With Model And Year. nissan Has Lifted My Car Numerous Time And Has Not Once Mentioned Seeing Rust, Which At This Point Is Now Out Of Warranty. This Could’ve Been Fixed And Still Under Warranty Months Ago. I Was My Car All The Time And Even In Winter, I Understand That Rust Is Natural On A Car, But When You See That This Happens More Than Often On This Particular Model They Should Do Something About It. Either Extend The Warranty Out Further Or Recall. My Car Is No Even That Old And This Is Upsetting That I Going To Shell Out Some Major Bucks To Get This Fixed Properly. *tr

The Clutch Pedal Lost Pressure After Idling For Over Thirty Minutes, While In Traffic, And After The Engine Has Gotten Hot And Being Driven For A Couple Of Hours. The Pedal Will Fall To The Floor And You Cannot Switch Gears. The Stick Shift Won’t Even Move Into Neutral And The Car Jerks Really Hard. It Will Sometimes Cut Off In The Middle Of Driving If You Don’t Reach Down And Pull The Pedal Up With Your Hand. This Has Cause Me To Run Off The Road Because I Could Not Down Shift Or Go Into Neutral, I Recently Ended Up Tapping The Rear Of Someone Elses Vehicle At Which My Daughter Is Still Complaining Her Neck Hurts. This Is A Defective Part Dealing With The Hydraulics And Is Very Dangerous. A Lawsuit Is Sure To Be On The Way Now That I Have Wen To Several Dealerships Only For Them To Tell Me Nothing Is Wrong With The Car Because It Won’t Do It For Them. All nissan Forums Are Filled With Customers Having The Same Issues With These Year Model Cars. nissan Is About To Kill Somebody. *tr
