Notes: You don't want to get 2009 and 2010 Altima owners started about their cars. That is, unless, you know how to start their cars.

These vehicles can suddenly become impossible to start thanks to a faulty electronic steering column lock (ESCL). Nissan dealers will gladly replace it, but that will run you $1000.

It's one of the many reasons this car was named CarTalk's Turd of the Week and given our Beware of this Clunker badge. Two dubious honors.

2010 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

I put air into the front driver side tire of my 2010 Nissan Altima and the tire censor broke while doing so. I took the car to dave's Nissan of jackson to be fixed, when they later informed me the censor was not covered under warranty. The design of the tire stem should be looked at so the censor breaking does not happen to people in the future that attempt to put air into their tires. Nissan is unwilling to cooperate with me on this issue so I had to take matters into my own hands and contact dot for assistance with this matter.
