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 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 222006

Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,631 miles


Car would stall at low speeds or when stopped. I took the car to the dealership, they explained to me that my crankshaft position sensor was failing and that they would replace it for approximately $600. I then took the car to a private mechanic who replaced the sensor for $222.91. Car purchased in 2004. Additional work required: Engine replacement, wheel bearings replacement, transmission replacement, and interior panels replacement. I found information of this campaign (07V527000) through and I've contacted Nissan. Nissan claimed that there was no such campaign and they could not help me. The campaign that they show for the crankshaft position sensor is for the 2002-3 Altima models.
