  • Yep struts went my 2010 altima hybrid at 68K what a piece of junk. I also have a 97 altima and my mom have a 05 altima struts still running strong, but the have been plagued with problems with ball joints, upper and lower control arm issues. Brother in law has two maximas and the 06 transmission blew just under 90k miles.
