Nissan Altima owners have reported 8 problems related to rear seat belt (under the seat belt category).
2005 Nissan Altima has issues with tires and wheel alignment. Consumer states that the customer service is not good with phone calls. The consumer stated she was on her third set of tires at 22,000 miles. The technician stated the vehicle had weak axles and were often mis-aligned at the factory. Even with the proper maintenance, the mis-alignment would return. The consumer stated the vehicle would not start. It was later determined that the crank position sensor was the cause. The consumer attempted to install a car seat, but she soon discovered, the rear seat belt did not catch as it should have and it did not recoil when it was not being used. The fan would blow and work in all positions, but the only time it would blow warm or hot air was when the accelerator was in use and running for 10-15 minutes. The windows would defrost on the outside, but not the inside. It would form a thin layer of ice and fog that had to be scraped or wiped with warm water, or it would eventually fade after driving for some time.

Contact stated: rear driver's side seat belt retracted, and the buckle was not visible. Has not been to the dealer yet.
Rear brake lights failure- both sides- first left then right- replaced went out again soon after. Lights on heater gauges failed. Cigarette lighter "female part" pulls out of dash when you take the lighter out. Passenger door panel came off-keeps the doors from unlocking- tried to fix it and ended up being locked in my car in the rain for an hour. Back passenger side seat belt was jammed. Also odometer is jammed-has never been tampered with. Was bringing my husband to work and I know that it is a 10 mile drive-none of the numbers rolled over. Works when it wants to.

Once back seat passenger is buckled in to seatbelt, belt sticks and will not give. If passenger leans against the head rest, they will have to undo the seatbelt to be able to move at all.

One of the rear seatbelts is defective - it will not click with any of the belts. Assenger seatbelt 'ratchets' when pulled out all the way and will not allow the passenger to move forward without first unbuckling the seatbelt, letting it fully retract and then fastening it again. Quite often this has to be done while the car is in motion.
In March 2001, I had my child in a car seat buckled in the back middle seat. When I went to get her out of her car seat when we stopped the lap belt was broke. I had it replaced in April and the same thing happened. I went to the dealership for a different kind of seat belt and they said all they can do is order the same one they replaced that broke which I don't want because it isn't safe it can't hold a 30 lb. Kid. When I called 1-800-nissan1 the lady on the phone told me that it isn't meant for car seats it puts too much of a strain on the seat belt causing it to break. I called the highway patrol because that is wear they install it and they said under no circumstances should a seat belt break. It is also in the car manual to install the car seat in the middle of the back seat as well. I am lucky that I wasn't involved in an accident that may have severly injured or killed my daughter. I think the public should be aware of this problem.
