problem #1

Feb 282004

Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,000 miles
The 2002 Altima started to stall. I took the car to the dealership. I was advised that the car had 3 recalls on it and I should have been notified a year in a half before. I took the car back 3 times and on the third time I was adivsed that the car would need a new motor. That was on Mar 15,2004. I called April 24,2004 at 3 pm and was advised by the manager handling the car that Nissan approved then disapprove the replacement order then reapproved it again. He adivsed me he would call me with further. This has gone on for the passed 6 weeks and the car is no longer working but I'm paying for it.
