I've had my 2013 Nissan Altima since August. It seemed to be driving fine until 2 weeks ago. It lurched forward, jumped and shuddered when letting off the brake, then 10 minutes later I came to a stop and it felt as if the car behind me bumped me. As I started forward again the car shuddered a little then cut off. I was able to restart the car but when put into any gear the car stalled. It's been 2 weeks and at 2 different shops and they are saying I need a new transmission. I'm out of warranty by 33 miles!!! What is going on? I've never seen a car need a new transmission this soon!
My car has a blown head gasket, bad thermostat, bad radiator and it over heats. It's drivable but only short distances. like 30 mins. Im a college student with no money. What should I do?
I was driving my 2003 Nissan Altima and the roads were wet due to rain. I came off an exit ramp and pressed on brakes to slow down because there was a red light. My car started to skid and it veered left and right. I gained control and pressed on the brake as hard as could and I felt the brakes lock up. I continued to go forwarded at a high rate of speed. (I'm guessing 25-35 mph) and saw the car in front of me stopped at the red light to turn left. I slammed into the back of her car (1998 Lincoln Town car) and both of my airbags deployed (passenger and driver). I'm pretty sure my car is totaled. The radiator is shot and the hood is severely bent, and the bumper is resting on the ground. BUT, is it possible I bent the frame of my car by rear ending another vehicle? Please advise. Car still turns on and drives. Thank you
I need a new engine for my Altima. The dealership quoted $7500 (which I suspect is high) and are working on a quote for a used engine. I have looked into buying an Engine myself and having it installed professionally. Is that a risky way to go? And around how much would labor to install the engine run do you think? Just a ballpark figure. I just want to make sure I'm not getting the runaround for such a big job. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
it only makes nose when I start it and when I drive it stays for about 5 mins and it goes away

Left front rim flattened, wheel bearing damaged, upper control arm bent, tire shredded, rear tire damaged. All replaced, balance and alignment done. Road force variation checked on all tires with measurements ranging from 6-23. Still have vibration at highway speeds that is felt more in seat than steering wheel. 2 shops cannot correct. Half shaft not pulled and checked for damage. What could cause the vibration? How can it be diagnosed? PLEASE help!

Brake system, hybrid system warning lights and ck engine light came on. At dealership diagnosis is P0300 recommended total replacement of cylinder head. Car has 83,504 mi. Cost $5700. Towed to another shop, their diagnosis had 2 codes indicated hybrid battery (they never got dealer code). Diagnosed all systems, said fine. Dealer replaced battery under warranty. Now car runs rough when transitioning from EV mode to gas and doesn't seem to operate on EV mode as long. Dealer says will redial nose, but thinks it's the cylinder head and will have to replace gaskets, exhaust manifold/catalytic conv and front pipe. After a week it's not running as rough, but I am not comfortable taking it back to dealer because I think they'll diagnose as cylinder head to stand by their original diagnosis. Help and thank you.
I was told the cluster needed to be replaced. Everything works except for the electronic part for the temperature.
