Altima 4-cyl

  • 48,000 miles


2007 Nissan Altima interior brake light kept coming on and carried the car to the dealership where the master brake cylinder was found to be leaking into the brake booster. This is a common problem as noted here: www.nissanclub.com/forums/2007-Nissan-Altima-discussion-2-5-3-5/298430-warning-master-cylinder-problem-must-read.html this could lead to brake failure if left alone. There should be a recall since this has happened to so many Altima. The Sentra was recalled for this very thing, same years, 2007 and 2008. They share the same brake cylinder. Please add this incident to your growing list of Altima master brake cylinder failures.

My car would not start consistently. I have a 2007 Nissan Altima with push button start. You have to engage the brake for the start button to work (and have itelli key). The brake light was not registering regularly, so you could start your car and drive somewhere and be stuck. I am lucky I have an honest mechanic who figured out it was the brake safety switch under the pedal and replaced it to resolve the issue. When Nissan was notified they confirmed they have sold that part very often. I would think this part should not be one that stops working so easily and is a recall/manufacturing issue.

On 01/25/2010, I was driving from work and while I attempted to stop to a light, the brakes failed to respond. I couldn't control the car anymore. The car slid, and hit another car in the back, but because the speed was low, the damage was minor. After that, the car was frozen ; the police came and the car was towed to a nearby autobody shop; after the outside damage was fixed, the car was transported to a Nissan dealership because the car was not drivable.(the soft ware was messed up, as the dealer told me).at the Nissan dealership, the software was reset. They couldn't guarantee though that this incident will not happen again. I contacted the manufacturer and explained that this car had a general inspection less than 2 months prior the accident and the annual revision less than3 weeks prior the accident, and now, even the car was fixed the Nissan dealer cannot guarantee that the system will not fail again. The manufacturer decided to sent the car for another inspection to the same Nissan dealer that couldn't guarantee the safety of my car. At this point, I am afraid driving the car.
