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

The contact stated the winshield rubber came off while driving 50 mph under normal road conditions. There was a half an inch gap between the windshield and the frame where the wipers are. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer, the windshield was replaced, but the problem still existed.

Corresopndence I will mail to you describes what I consider to be defective unsafe and unhealthy'air conditioning system of the 2005 Nissan Altima. Namely for 3 air conditioning control positions the air conditioning cannot be shut off without unsafely stopping the car's engine; this unsafe procedure is actually documented in the owner's manual.
