Nissan Altima Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Nissan Altima reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Nissan Altimas with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Nissan Altimas that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Nissan Altima lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Nissan Altima has been recently.

We have owned 4 Maximas in the past, and were considering another, when we took a drive in this car. If you're a Maxima fan, don't drive this one or you'll take it home!
