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).

My car which was purchased less than a month ago, is back at the dealership for the third time. The car continues to have many issues. There is a shimmy/vibration in the steering column as well as vibration in the door, accelerator and floor boards. It often seems that there are problems with the suspension as well as the brakes. The most important issue is that the car continues to drive off the road to the right and you have to force it out of a right-hand turn. Although this problem also seems to occur to the left as well, it is not as apparent. What is apparent, is when you try to compensate for the drifting, it over-compensates to the other side and it never feels as though the tires are holding the road at all times. It is practically impossible to manage the car on the highway. This issue is a huge safety issue that is not only putting the lives of myself and my family in danger but the lives of the others on the road as well. I have absolutely no confidence that this car can be repaired to any level of safety.
