On certain passenger vehicles equipped with a 2.5L engineThe crankshaft position sensor can overheat causing a brief interrupion in the signal output.

Vehicles equipped with a 2.5L engine may suffer from increased oil consumption as a result of improper performance of the piston rings. Severe engine damage can result if the engine is operated with the engine oil low. In extreme cases, an engine fire could result. Dealers will reprogram the engine control module (ECM). Vehicles will also be inspected for excess oil consumption. A small number of vehicles will require engine replacement. Nissan began notifying vehicle owners of the recall on June 9, 2006.

 

Nissan has recalled 2006 Maxima and Altima models because the rear subframe may have been manufactured incorrectly, which could result in a crack in the bracket that holds part of the rear suspension. If the bracket cracks, the stability of the vehicle may be affected, which could lead to a loss of control and a possible crash. Dealers will inspect the rear subframe to determine if it was manufactured incorrectly and replace it, if necessary.

2006 Nissan Altima Reviews

I have a 2006 Nissan Altima and my gear shift gets stuck frim time to time, here recently it got stuck and I forced the gear shift into to drive, the next day when I got in it to drive to work, it wont shift into R, N, or D. My vehicle is stuck in park when the gear shift moves to Drive, what could cause this and how can I get it fixed.

I enjoy my nissan, the only problem sometime won't start the first time i started, the brakes making noise when i brake or back up.

Bought my 2006 Altima and suffered thru the initial scare that I had a BUM engine. However, it turned out my engine was not one of the bad ones built in Feb/Mar of 2006 in Tennessee. Have had no problems with this car after 41000 - Am averaging over 30 on hwy trips. My only knock on the Nissan is the configuration of the trunk. Can be awkward to pack with golf clubs.
