I hear you. That's why I trust what they say... when it comes to vehicles it's just a matter of luck. My co-worker has a late 80's Chevrolet Lumina with almost 200K miles on it. Original engine, original tranny, original "almost everything"... just minor repairs. Then you might get a Japanese $30,000 vehicle that ends up in the shop several times in its 1st 6 months (WTF???!!!)

Good luck bro, I'm out to bed.

Sorry to hear it dude, but every American car I've owned has failed me, but not imports. My little Toyota Tercel, 4 speed manual, abused on the autobahns, gave me 180,000 miles.

I haven't changed anything but the alternator on this Altima. She's money.

you ever change or flush the fluid in the trans, all depends how you treat something, my friends F150 engine blew up at 61,000 miles, what a complete waste of 3k oil changes

I never had any major problems with any of my 5 Nissan's I've owned besides rust and just general age related issues. I have nothing against Nissan however there are better cars, and even in the American car line up there are other cars with better reviews and reliability ratings. No car is perfect and some are known for bigger problems then others. Early Nissan auto transmissions suck, simple as that, they are very finicky and require a lot of TLC with regular fluid changes.
Now this is also coming from someone who no longer owns a Nissan too...so take it at face value.

I don't think my altima was necessarily unreliable, but it broke down more than my fords have. the blackie in my sig has over 160k, runs great and gets 24 mpg :D

Damn phinger, sorry to hear :( How much does a new tranny run with labor for the install? $1500? :(

My alty has 142k on her with original, "almost everything" and is running pretty good still. Though, i wouldn't be surprised if the tranny kicked the bucket within the next year (if i keep it that long).

I got a rebuilt tranny including install for $1,500. The only way you can get new is if you or the shop goes through the dealer and trust me; that won't be $1,500 anymore. :(

Wait to you cry over the insurance on that bitch. On a side note, my parent's bought me a 95 Z28 Convertible for my 16 birthday, it was great, but the paint started peeling like a bitch. Otherwise, I had no major problems with it. Not sure if I would buy another one, but they're not that bad of cars.
