ANNOUNCEMENT: The Car Book 2018 is now online!

Ratings on over 1,000 new & used models going back 5 years, from the Center from Auto Safety. Learn more about The Car Book 2018 here.

CarComplaints.com 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.

More info & videos about the Nissan ESCL defect are available over at NissanProblems.com.

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.

Altima SL 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles

Car has 3500 miles and is 5 months old. Sunroof Leaks so bad you can't be in it if you go through a car wash. Dealer says that's normal. Customer Relations agreed with dealer. I'm stuck with a new car that gets wet every time you wash it.
