Understanding the Problem

Do you own a 2005 - 2014 Nissan Altima with engine problems? These may include stalling, lack of power, hesitation, shaking, rough running or excessive engine oil consumption (have to add oil all the time).

The Nissan factory has identified some vehicles that may experience excessive oil consumption, failing catalytic converters, failed Mass Air Flow Sensors, electrical connector problems, and in some cases the engines may require major mechanical repairs, or complete engine replacement! On these cars the factory usually replaces the engine after an “oil consumption test” is performed, and the results come back that the vehicle’s oil consumption is out of factory oil usage specifications.

You may have a vehicle that also experiences problems with the illumination of the “CHECK ENGINE” light (which typically indicates an engine mis-fire condition). This can be caused by excessive build-up of motor oil on the spark plug electrode. The “CHECK ENGINE” light may be simply an indicator of the oil consumption problem, or other problems such as emissions system, fuel injection system, or ignition system.

Typical normal oil consumption for these V-6 series engines is a quart of oil in 1,200-5,000 miles. Usage of a quart or more in 1,000 miles or less indicates internal engine issues, requiring repairs or engine replacement.

California’s Largest Statewide Lemon Law Firm

You may have a “lemon” Altima. We can help!

Our law firm is currently collecting data statewide on the performance, durability and effectiveness of the engine replacements done on these vehicles, the oil consumption issues on Altimas that have not yet had their engine’s replaced, but are experiencing the excessive oil consumption issue, as well as “CHECK ENGINE” light and other driveability issues.

We would like to stress that this is not an issue that affects every Nissan Altima owner. This is, however, an issue that is affecting some owners of these 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder Altimas, much to their frustration.

We invite all California consumers who have had 3 or more visits to a Nissan dealership for excessive oil consumption or other engine problems on their Altima (that is under the 60,000 mile factory powertrain warranty) to call us on our toll-free information line at 1-800-647-8127. You may be a candidate for a buyback (repurchase), new replacement vehicle, or a substantial cash settlement payment for your Altima vehicle. Call us today for a free case evaluation and what your rights are under the lemon law statute.
