2004 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 052005

Altima 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70 miles


I rented vehicle for the weekend and used it for 1 day. I drove it down state to champaign 250 miles and made a stop. When I got back in the car and started it up, it hesitated to change gears but did, so I turned and drove the car home to Chicago. The weather temperature was very fridget outside. When I got to Chicago the vehicle stopped I could start it up but it would go into gear. The engine sounded very fine there was nothing else noticeable, no loud noises in the car. I called enterprise aaa towed the car to the enterprise rental place. I rented a smoke color vehicle. My insurance company said that he is charging me $5,000 for a brand new transmission for a 2005 Nissan and for a serpentine belt and a oil change. The vehicle has already been repaired. I have not been given any information on anything or its whereabouts.
