Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


We bought a 2007 Altima (used) which still had all original manufacture parts on it. The second day that we had it the brakes started squealing. When I took it to the dealer they had it from 7am until I finally got it back at 11pm which seemed weird and upset me very much. They told me that all they needed to do was clean the pads and for extra help they sprayed some stuff on them to keep it from squealing. The next day started squealing again, so I took it back and they told me that they just found out that Nissan's corporate tech's were trying to find out what caused all of the Altima's to have this issue. Then they wanted to put new pad on for me to see if it would help. I agreed and to bring it in the next day and I went home and marked the pads myself and when I took it in I asked to see the old pads when they were finished. When I went in and they showed me the pads they were not the ones I marked and they insisted that they were and the issue was fixed. And they said there will probably be a fix or a recall by next year and to just deal with it if it started squealing again which started as I was still in the dealers parking lot. Please help.

Altima 4-cyl

Brand new 2007 Nissan Altima took to deale R at 2915 for oil change and asked them to check brakes. They told me they needed to replace back brake pads. While waiting 6 hours they finally were going to let me take it, but the warning light came on. The mechanics were not sure what caused this and they needed the car to stay. At one point I was told the computerwas not doing what it was supposed to with the car. After several days I was told they would need to replace the wiring harness. Needless to say when I finally picked up the car they only fixed the wiring harness. It had trouble starting as well. I wait several minutes checking to see that car was in park and brake pedal pushed in and pushed on the ignition with thumb, and nd it took several tries before car started. Mind you this was a brand new car? very frustrated.
