"Buying an Altima at 48,000 miles i expected virtually no mechanical problems. I've had to replace the entire exhaust within the past 2 years as it rusted through piece by piece. Recently had to replace the distributor, then the alternator. Fuel leak = had to replace the filler neck. Had to replace CV boots (front).
Performs well for an old 4-cyl. I expected more reliability from this car."
