The window regulator failed on a car that was transferred from a non-"hot" state, new york, to a "hot" state, florida. The regulator failed after only two months of hot weather. The regulators where not replaced in initial service campaign which has now expired. Nissan refuses to acknowledge that there was a campaign to replace regulators as it was not a full recall on all cars. This issue does not only affect hot weather states as years of summers in other states can still wear down and damage regulators if this failure was so quick to happen after move.

Engine ping noise from engine at times really loud noise got worse then more problems happened over time at a stop car was accelerating like if was pressing the brake and the gas at the same time,next car would come to a stop then lost power when accelerating the car would not go more than a few mph this happened a few times and once down hill the car would not go in reverse and almost hit a parked car also almost got in an accident because the car would not clear an intersection , I also got video footage of incident ,dealer keeps saying there is nothing wrong and the car is safe even after they saw the video they say the computer shows nothing then a recorder was installed in the car and the car was accelerated by itself the recorder button was pressed and the car was then taken to the dealer the recorder was taken off and the main Nissan company called me and said that the information on the recorder was accidentally erased. I have had many problems with this car since I had it this is my main concern but I have had problems from the windows not rolling down to the airbag light turning on and tail lights not working the dealer is not helping neither Nissan direct and at this point im concerned of my safety and my family's.

Sun visor - it keeps falling down in my line of vision. (won't stay up at all). On drivers side. Numerous others have had this problem and it costs about $400 to replace! I think it's a manufacturers problem.

Started approximately 2 years ago. Driver and passenger windows won't go up all the way and if they do then they roll down all by themselves. They go up and down at all times of the day and nite. The car automatically locks itself whether the keys are in the ignition or not. You always need to have two sets of keys because if the window is down and you reach in to unlock it the alarm goes off as if you are trying to break into the car. Door that goes over the gas cap bent during regular use and would not close. Nissan said there were no recalls on this item and just to take it to a dealer and pay to get it fixed. Saw several other Altimas of the same vintage with the same problem.

We bought a 2004 Nissan Altima, it has power windows, the power window on the driver side automatically goes up (closes) with a hit of a button and does not come down if there is a resistance, this is a safety concern because a child can hit that by accident while looking out, and can cause death, the windows should go down automatically but not up.

On 11/27/2007, I came home to find both of the front windows of my 2006 Nissan Altima down. The mystery to me is how my windows got rolled down. The alarm on my car was on, the steering column was locked and my lock bar was still on the steering column. Luckily nothing was stolen and my neighbors had taped plastic on my windows to avoid damage if it had rained. Pictures were taken and the police were called. Of course, the mystery still remains as to how the windows were rolled down. No one has a key to my car and each morning/evening, I ensure that the alarm is on. If this is some sort of defect, I would like to know. Is it a way for someone to roll down my electric windows without turning the ignition? is there a way for someone's remote control to operate the windows of my vehicle? my remote control does not control the windows. I will be discussing this incident further with the dealer when I take my vehicle in for it's first oil change (since purchased Dec. 2006 - but has less than 3500 miles).

I purchased my used 2001 Nissan Altima on 12/07/2004, on 01/09/2005 while driving I went to let my window down on the drivers side and it would not go down. My wife also, has a 1999 Nissan Altima that the window on the drivers side stop working and we have a friend with an Altima and her windows stop working too. I notice there are several complaints about the same problem and the dealerships are aware of the problem but there is no recall. I do not understand this. All I know is I had my car for 1 month and my window does not work now. How crazy is that?.
Back rear window regulators not functioning.
Window would only go up and down sporodically. Window regulators have failed. I do not have use of two of the four windows. I bought the car to the dealership and they have acknowledge a problem with the window regultors. According to Nissan there is an active campaign (not a recall) on this vechicle for this problem. How can a company acknowledge a defect, not inform it's customers, not repair the problem, and risk liability from this problem? I am very concerned with this problem as I have two small children who must be driven in this car.
Rear passenger side window exploded outwards while the vehicle was parked in a parking space. The sun roof opened. Weather temperature was cool when this occurred. The vehicle is scheduled to be taken to the dealership.

Electric door window switch went out had to replace it myself cant keep car alligned wears out tires quick it has 63000 miles on it &has had 5sets of tires put on all the way around.
The regulator in the window has went out. I contacted my dealer and he said that was very common in my type of vehicle and he is suprised that it hasn't already been recalled. I would like to know if other complaints have been filed concerning the driver side window motor/regulator.
Driver's power window switch failed. I have spoken to at least 3 dozen other Nissan Altima owners who have all reported this exact same problem (I posted a message to an internet message board).
I own a 2001 Nissan Altima. During the past year, both window units controlling the up and down of the front windows have failed. My dealer informs me that this is a very common problem in Nissan Altima, but there has been no factory recall notice sent to owners.
Starting from 10 months to the present, which is 14 months after purchase, both front and one rear window regulator assemblies have failed. The first two only weeks apart. I now , of course assume that the final window componnent will fail as well. Replacement of the four regulator assemblies will cost me $900.
While driving the driver/passenger side window stuck in the down position at different times. Consumer took vehicle to the dealership, and they replaced the cable. Consumer feels that this is unsafe because if vehicle is in an accident the driver can be trapped. Please provide more details. Ts.

Exhaust fumes come in through car during all settings of heat, recylcled air, defroster. Smells like rotten eggs, sewage, exhaust, gas. Have been to dealer twice and talked to Nissan and bbb auto line without satisfactory resolution. I have used a higher octane gas as the dealer recommended and it doesn't help.
