Nissan Altima Hybrid Problems

Knocking Noise From Front Suspension

The front struts can wear prematurely and develop a knocking noise when driving over bumps.

Check Engine Light Due to Catalytic Converter Failure

The catalytic converter closest to the cylinder head can fail causing illumination of the Check Engine Light. Prompt repair of this problem is recommended because the catalyst material can be sucked into the engine and cause internal damage.

AC Not Cold Due to Pressure Hose Leak

The AC system may blow warm air due to refrigerant loss caused by a leaking low pressure AC hose. These hoses commonly develop a leak at the hose crimp connection.

Nissan Altima Hybrid Recalls

Passenger Air Bag May Not Deploy

This recall affects certain vehicles equipped Occupant Classification System (OCS) control units manufactured by Continental Automotive Systems. A varistor in the OCS control unit may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could interupt the signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (ACU), causing the passenger air bag to be suppressed in an accident. If the air bag does not deploy when needed in a crash, the risk of injury is increased. Dealers will test the signal between the OCS and ACU with a special tool to verify proper function. The seat cushion containing the OCS hardware will be replaced as necessary. The recall began November 4, 2008.

Nissan Altima Hybrid Reviews

Just received an estimate for engine repair on my 2007 hybrid with 76,000 miles on it. Apparently I need a rebuild due to carbon build up in the engine. $3500.00 plus tax, of course. I wish I knew about this potential complication before I bought the car. So much for gas savings. How about Nissan stepping up and helping out it's hybrid owners, since I am told this is a problem specific to ...

I picked my 07 Hybrid up in 2009 with 24k miles on it. Now just over 90k, I have had no mechanical issues with the car at all! Stock tires sucked but replacing them with good tires meant losing a bit of mileage but still regularly over 32mpg when driving mostly fwy in a spirited fashion, I cannot complain at all. Sure some cars are better now, but mine is paid for and I still really enjoy the...
