Complaints reported with the 2019 Nissan Altima include electrical faults, speed control, and engine cooling problems.
Electrical System Faults
A variety of faults with the electronics have been flagged by Nissan, most notably with speed control and the brakes. In terms of braking, drivers are experiencing abrupt breaking without prompt. The system is designed to stop in time and avoid collisions, but it appears to be defective as it malfunctions and comes in to play when there are no collision risks.
Power train problems have led to reports of the vehicle vibrating and juddering. This fault is more apparent when driving at a slow pace or over speed bumps.
Cooling Exhaust System
Nisan has been experiencing problems with the exhaust systems in many of its cars going back to 2004. There is an issue with the engine burning too much fuel to the catalytic converter causing problems with excessive exhaust fumes and overheating. This issue is also causing rust and damage to the exhaust on some models, including the Altima.
Vehicle Speed Control
Drivers have reported issues with unintended acceleration particularly when using cruise control. This fault is apparent since 2018 and Nissan has not issued a fix.
The above issues have also been reported on the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Nissan Altima
