I have read most of the posts on this webpage, and finally decided that I needed to share her story. She bought an 02 Altima when it first came out, and it has been a freakin nightmare. We are over at Nissan every other day for some other problem. The most recent problem is the engine not starting up. read numerous posts regarding this. In the past year and a half her car has had trouble starting 4 or 5 times....it sounds like its turning over, but it just wont engage. The last time was the worst. Her car stalled in the middle of the road, and I had to run out of class to help her because she wasnt strong enough to turn the wheel and get the car out of the road. After tirelessly trying to start the car, I decided to go get some gas since it was a really cold morning (like 0 degrees) and she had less than a 1/4 tank. Finally had to get the car towed. Sure enough, Nissan couldnt seem to reproduce the problem. They kept the car for 3 whole days, letting various service managers take it home to try to reproduce the problem. They finally gave it back to her and told her there was nothing they could do. Lets just say she was pissed...when you own a new car, the last thing you expect is to have your car stall in the middle of the road when you are on your way to an important meeting. Anyway, she gets a call from Nissan about a week ago. Apparently they got a call from Nissan headquarters stating that there has been a cold start problem with Altimas in the northeast. Apparently the fuel has been freezing in the fuel lines! So they asked her to keep her tank over 1/2 full on very cold days, and that Nissan would be sending them a "product" to remedy the problem. We both think this is complete bull. I just wanted to write and let those of you know that have had this problem, that it apppears Nissan is aware, although their remedy seems like a load of crap.
