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!

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Altima. The radio and cd player began working intermittently and then stopped working entirely. When the contact took the vehicle to the dealer, she was advised to go to another repair shop. She was informed that the fee to repair the radio and cd player would be free; however, she was charged $185.44. The contact took the vehicle to Nissan and they were equipped to perform the repair, but the dealer from where the vehicle was purchased, has yet to diagnose the failure. They could only inform her that the failure was internal. The powertrain and failure mileage were unknown. The current mileage was 47,135. Updated 3/5/08 the dealer stated rear window operates really slow, and pillar/roof keeps coming a loose. Updated 03/05/08
