Sound familiar? Like a script from a horror film, these Altimas seem doomed to fail around 95k miles.

I have a 2003 Nissan Altima (Limited Edition 3.2L 57K miles) and haven't had a single problem with it until recently. I found that the serpentine belt was cracked and needed to be changed. I've not come across this issue before on any other car.
