    I would go to a different dealer... they are not VERY difficult to get as informed, since i test drove 3 of them, and each was with the red/charcoal interior. They told me that it was difficult to get the gray/charcoal ones. Hold out till you get what you want... they are out there.

    " I love the styling.. but it has some small knick knacks that bother me"

    Can you be more specific max as to what really dont you like about your 05 Altima. :)

    Wondering which brand of tires people have put on their 3.5SE?
    Its the unpopular size 215/55HR17.
    I still have the stock tires, turanza el42.
    Its an o.k. tire but prefer something that rides softer with less noise.

    Hi All -

    I've had my new 2005 Altima for about a month now and have noticed major noise with the sunroof. It almost sounds like the sunroof is shifting around when it is closed and I am driving. When open it sounds like something is being blown around inside the sunroof. Has anyone had issues with this? I took it to the dealer and he told me it was simple car shift. I find it very annoying. Looking to see if anyone had this problem and if it was resolved.

    Thanks.

    have a starting problem...when it is cold car starts fine...when the temperature rises outside or the engine is warm the car will not start....at times after waiting 1- minutes the car will start at other times will not start until the outside temperature cools down....when I turn the key the radio and all equipment works until I turn the key all the way then everything shuts down like not getting any juice....

    No, I just keep getting the computer reset to get out of limp-mode.. Autozone does this free at any of there stores, some charge a small fee,,, 10-20$

    You cannot trust the dealer,, I going today to Autozone. and verify the service codes, so the right part gets replace and I don't have to spend that much money... good luck to you

    Sad to say, but we sold our beloved '01 Altima GXE Ltd. Edition this weekend. It had been nickeling and dimeing us to death this past 1 1/2 years. It had just shy of 80k miles on her, but it was time to move on. As the wife wanted a smaller car and didn't want a Sentra like I drive, she bought a Mazda3 S and we couldn't be happier. The power is almost like the Altima, it's a 2.3 liter engine. The shifts though are silky smooth.
    It was a great run with the Altima but now we've "zoom zoomed" on. I will still lurk in here from time to time. Wishing y'all many miles of trouble free motoring with your Altimas!

    Similar to you -- I have a 2000 Nissan Altima SE; bought it new in July of 2000. But I have 96K on it; it was at 91K when the problem hit. You likely have a leaky maifold gasket. I did the tune-up, new plugs, air filter, cleaned air intake, gas additive, fuel filter, etc. I have an OBDII and reset the memory. Within a day or so it came back on with the same message about "multiple misfires". Took it to the Nissan shop and they got the same message and found the problem...all for a mere $634.50. At least the problem is solved and the engine idles and runs smoothly.

    p.s. be sure NOT to have them include a diagnostic charge (about $65) for a diagnostic that you already will give to them!

    My 2002 Nissan Altima does the same thing! Stalling all the time and it is also a lease. I am thinking of filing a lemon law suit against Nissan if they can't fix the problem. I would like feedback from others on stalling while idle.
    Can someone help me?
  • 4him24him2 Posts: 3
    Does this help the stalling? Will the car get worse if driven like this?
    My car stalls all the time and it's a lease and I'm not putting any more money into that vehicle. I have already replaced the engine.
    Please reply, someone!

    ANy know how powerful the BOSE system is in the 2005 Altima? The one in the 2005 Maxima is 320 watts but I swear they sound different, so I do not believe this is what the Altima gets. The dealership is clueless - they told me theyre the same.
  • maxamillion1maxamillion1 Posts: 1,467
    150 watts right???
  • rbevz67rbevz67 Posts: 69
    Not sure. I saw that figure on some 3rd party sites. Anyone try the stereo? Is it worth the upgrade or should I just invest 2k into my own stero?
  • maxamillion1maxamillion1 Posts: 1,467
    with BOSE had 150 watts.

    I don't think the 05 Altima is any different.

    I remember thinking that 150 watts wasn't a lot, but Edmunds.com rated the BOSE system in the Altima as one of the best...so oh well.

    The Previous Gen Maxima had a 120 watt CD player and a 200 Watt CD (00-01) CD6 (02-03)

    I LOVED the previous generation Maxima...almost bought a used one instead of my Altima.
  • I am curious about a few things regarding the Altima from 2002 and up. I only want responses from Arizona residents who are driving in our extreme heat. I want to know how does your car perform in this heat compared to the rest of the year. Cooling, gas mileage, Air Conditioning. Also list any problems you have had related to the heat and how many miles you have on your car now?

    Just wanted to know if anyone else thought the A/C heating configuration was odd. I recently bought a 2005 2.5S with A/C. Upon going to the dealer and then being shown this little info in the owners manual. I thought I'd ask around to see what other people thought.

    Taken from the owners manual.

    Defrosting or defogging.

    When the "Windshield Only symbol" is selected. The air conditioning automatically turns on (However the indicator light will not illuminate) if the outside temperature is more than 36 degrees. The air conditioning system will continue to operate until the vehicle is restarted, even if the the air flow control dial is turned to a position other than the "Windshield" position.

    Heating and defogging.

    When the "Windshield and Floor symbol" is selected. The air conditioning automatically turns on (However the indicator light will not illuminate) if the outside temperature is more than 36 degrees. The air conditioning system will continue to operate until the vehicle is restarted, even if the the air flow control dial is turned to a position other than the "Windshield and Floor" position.

    Dehumidified defogging.

    When the "Windshield Only symbol or the Windshield and Floor symbol", or positions in between are selected, the air conditioning automatically turns on (However the indicator light will not illuminate) if the outside temperature is more than 36 degrees. The air conditioning system will continue to operate until the vehicle is restarted, even if the the air flow control dial is turned to a position other than the "Windshield" position.

    I think it's very odd that they would make a car that in order to deactivate the A/C. You would have to restart your car. For reference refer to pages 4-12 thru 4-21.

    If anyone knows of a fix for this I would greatly appreciate the info as I find this both gasoline and power robbing in the performance of my Altima.

    Thanks

  • My wife drives a 2003 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE. We purchased it recently off a 2 year lease with approx. 50,000 miles on it. It is in immaculate condition and a delight to drive (I can't take my hands off it) with one exception. There is a subtle rattle coming from the right front end. The rattle can be heard on any road surface. Several mechanics including the local Nissan dealer have tried to diagnose it. All of them initially suspect the strut but after closer inspection none of them have ended up thinking it is the strut. The suspension is tight and the wheels are well balanced. One of the mechanics replaced the strut bracket and tie rod end which did not help.

    Can someone please help diagnose this problem? It is not something we can't live with but it is a shame to have this annoying rattle on such an otherwise delightful car.
  • My Altima started doing this weird thing just a week ago: it will idle with no problems. If you try to rev the engine in park, it will stall and die. But, if you press the gas SLOWLY, no problems. I changed the fuel filter, but no dice. Has anybody else seen this problem? The car will drive for about a minute and then stall. Cap and rotor?

    Hi, you might want to check through our Idle or Stalling problems discussion, also. Welcome - hope we can help.
  • Did you ever find a solution to your rattle Steve? I have thesame problem on my wifes 2003 Altima but on the right front. Notice you now have an RX300. I had a 1999 RX300 for 4 years and enjoyed every day of it. Not one problem in 4 years. I now have a 2004 Sienna that has performed well so far.
