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!


definitely annoying

2005 Nissan Altima that the back drivers side door lock is stuck in lock position. Automatic locks too. Can't unlock or get door open. Other door locks no longer lock when car goes into gear like its supposed to. This started in 2008 with my car.

The trunk lid has come down and hit me in the head while I was removing items from the trunk. The same thing has happened to my wife.

Passenger side door lock will not fully open with the automatic lock button. This forces you to enter the car from the drivers side and operate the door lock manually. Because there is not a key lock on the outside of the door it is not possible to get into the vehicle from the passenger side.
