Altimas and Sentras by far, of any vehicle, of any manufacturer, have the biggest issues with their CVTs.
    Either way, they're still junk in the public eyes. Why knowingly buy a car that has problems?

    Because the overwhelming number of Altima owners dont experience premature cvt failure, hell most probably dont even know theyre driving a cvt, hence the failures because they didnt take care of them in the first place. This would be front page news, considering millions of Americans own Nissans.

    Nissan Will Axe 10 Percent of Its Products Following a Catastrophic First Half of 2019

    Nissan’s plan for the future includes the unceremonious dumping of about 12,500 employees, and a reduction in production capacity by about 10% within the next two years.

    The Japanese version of GM, Ford, & Chrysler has been Toyota, Honda, & Nissan.

    Fiat hasn't improved Chrysler's image.
    Renault hasn't improved Nissan's image.
    Those views seem somewhat justified, too!

    I have a friend that always says, "Sewers always suck down, never up!" If you hang with the wrong crowd, they are most likely going to drag you down with them. Merge with an inferior company - guess what might happen?

    I think we should blame all this on Scotty Kilmer! A day seldom goes by without Scotty bashing Fiat-Chrysler & Renault-Nissan.

    On a more serious note: It really comes down to leadership. Most things start at the top whether we want to admit it or not. If you read any automotive news at all, it's quite apparent Nissan has had major leadership issues. It's not a surprise this company is struggling. It lacks direction!

    If I was in the market for a small car, SUV, hybrid, pickup truck, etc..., I wouldn't even bother visiting a Nissan showroom. Unless things change soon, I see Hyundai/KIA surpassing Nissan. Combined (Hyundai/KIA) aren't that far behind them already.

    Even if you could get a bargain? I'm sure there is some models you would consider if it were discounted appropriately.

    I'd drive the sh!t out of a new Frontier Pro4X...if it was cheap enough. Hell, the Tacoma isn't all that great anymore anyway. And I am not sure I'd pay the "Tacoma Tax" on a new or late-model used one.
