Notes: The 2005 Nissan Altima has two fairly significant problems with the floor pan rusting through & motor mounts breaking.

Altima owners report that up to a basketball-size hole develops under the floor mats where the floor pan metal rusts through. Average repair cost is over $1,000.

The broken motor mounts are less of a problem - they break at ~75,000 miles average & it's $400 to fix. Still, motor mounts should not break!

2005 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 282005

Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 800 miles


1) had trunk of car open to load suitcases 2) brisk wind came up and slammed the trunk lid down with extreme force. A child or adult could be injured if leaning into the trunk or if fingers are in the opening. When closing the trunk lid, I have noticed that it just drops shut with its own weight, after it is moved beyond a quarter of its full movement. I have a spoiler on my trunk lid which may contribute to this problem. 3) nothing done to correct
