Altima 4-cyl

  • 20,800 miles
The rearview mirror on my 2002 Nissan Altima has fogged up almost completely, leaving about 20 percent still clear, making it almost very confusing and hard to see. Call to Nissan and dealer resulted in "so what"... like its ok for a vehicle that is garaged, only 21142 miles of use, to have a key safety feature go awry. Dealer quoted price for new rearview mirror as "$278 plus tax"
