Is there a list that has all the common problems with altimas?

It seems that when people make a thread about problems with their cars, the response is that "it is a common problem with our cars."
Iif there isnt a list, can we make one?

I think ppl post that "it is a common problem!", because some of us have gone through it or still have what is thought to be a problem. Or we have read it posted here and had discussions on the issue, and resolved it to be common since many ppl observe the same thing.

- Wind noises/air leaks in weatherstripping
- Clicking sound when lifting off of gas with the A/C on - compressor switching on and off
- It's not fast enough! (it's an Altima danggit!):)

What about on 2nd geners like my 2K the engine fan continuing to run for various lengths of time after the car has been turned off. My 1st gen 95 didn't do this, as I recall.

Is that just normal or is it a problem? If it's a problem, is there a fix?

Normal dude..mine does the same and I am pretty sure the owners manual tackles this question.

It's in the manual? I'll have to look that up. Either I saw it and forgot it or didn't think to look.

I've had people, especially my father, stare strangely at my car when the fan runs after I've turned it off.

nice list we got going, not as long as I thought it would be.
I guess, im lucky b/c I havent had too many of those problems. The one that bugs me the most is the squeaky brakes.
