2009-2010 Nissan Altima and Maxima recall

2009-2010 Nissan Altima and Maxima recall

2010 Nissan Maxima
Nissan’s American division is recalling certain 2009 and 2010 Altima and Maxima cars due to a mechanical defect. The upper front “strut insulators” in 26,000 cars may have been manufactured out of specification, resulting in a potential for the suspension’s “strut insulator” to crack.

According to the U.S. NHTSA safety agency, if the strut insulator is cracked, there is a potential for the strut rod to come out of its mounting position, which could affect vehicle stability and increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan will notify U.S. owners, and dealers there will replace both left and right side front strut insulators free-of-charge. All GCC-spec Altima and upcoming Maxima models are also shipped in from the United States, but it is unknown if UAE, Saudi and other local dealers will take action.

What do you think?



  1. i think the maxima here will be fixed by the dealers before giving them to owners “if there any”…since they didnt start selling it till now.
    and the Altima 2010 is not launched till now..maybe they meant the 2009 altima only…BTW: they said that if the insulator gets cracked the owners will start hearing a loud noise…and they will raplace it under warranty..
    thanks for the news

  2. say “NO” to Nissan””””

  3. I have seen maxima on uae roads.

  4. Say ‘no’ to nissan? What r u smoking?

  5. say yes to Toyota… lolzz

  6. why say no to nissan? cuz of a recall? every manufacturer has had recalls and there always will be in the future with cars getting more and more complicated.
    and regarding Raun’s comment, is the maxima on sale already? just asking.

  7. ^^^
    you can book for one as i know…
    but till now they didnt sell it to anyone..so, what you see now is just some imported cars from US..

    regarding the nissan issue…it seems some people never look at car news except here…

    check this out: happened couple of weeks ago..but it seems mash missed the article lol

    I did see that Toyota news too. But those American-built Corollas and Chinese-built Camrys are not imported here, so it does not affect us.

  9. hondaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa boyz…….

  10. ^^^the very first batch of the current gen Civic was recalled only a few months after it’s launch..hahaha…as far as I know, only the Mitsus are running quite good..or were they recalled too??

  11. ya vivek..even mitsu recalled their cars outside…you cant find any car maker that doesnt recall some of his car..but some recalls are for very bad issues and others for some small stuff…even BMW recall cars.

  12. Any link with Nissan to cross check if my 2009 Altima is one of the defective lot if they had the chassis/vin number recorded with them.Thanks

  13. i purchase a 2010 Maxima and have problems with strut insulators. i took it in to replace both struts and few days later had to take it back in for the same thing. now waiting for another part related to the struts.
