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!

Altima 4-cyl

  • 100 miles


At 100 miles a brand new Nissan Altima with Continental touring M&S, contact as tires. P215/60R16 the sidewall blew out at 10 miles mph. I am dealing with Nissan to get them to replace all of the tires on the car. I do not feel safe with these tires.

Tire blister issue(turanza el 42 P215/55R17 93H M+S)--- I noticed a tire blister on my front passenger tire. I visited my dealer for assistance but was only redirected to Bridgestone/Firestone. However, Bridgestone/Firestone did not address the matter and simply ignored the failure of the tire integrity. I am worried as Bridgestone/Firestone has a histoy of ignoring problems with its products and has sacrificed the safety of the consumer in order to gain a profit. No one answered the phone when I contacted the Bridgestone/Firestone warranty number (800-847-3272). I eventually located another number via directory assistance (800-582-0962). However the sole tech support representative simply dismissed the matter. The representative did not complete a claim form or provide a claim number. He directed me to seek the advice of a Bridgestone/Firestone retailer. However, the retailer could not provide assistance without a claim number, which the manufacturer tech representative should have provided to me. I am very concerned with the way Bridgestone/Firestone handled this matter given its previous history. I wished that Nissan never placed this brand of tires on its new vehicles, especially if Nissan does not plan to protect its consumers from bad manufacturers. ***please note that your system will not allow me to insert the correct tire size. My tire size is P215/55R17 93H M.
