Notes: The 2015 Nissan Altima shows multiple problem trends, continuing the poor reputation of the 2013 & 2014 Altima, prompting us to give it our "beware of this clunker" badge.

Owners are complaining about a whining noise from the power steering pump and a concerning amount of low-mileage problems related to the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).

Medical attention was not required. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where an air quality test was conducted. The contact had not received a copy of the results. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 3,000...updated 07/26/16 the consumer stated the chemical or contaminants has been horrific. It burned off in a tornadic manner, spent rapidly in a cylinder movement, the color mixture was mostly white fog and black spec running through. Updated 08/17/16......updated 08/11/16
