USB Port does not recognize 128GB thumb drive. Dealer unable to tell me what size and format drives *are* supported. Internet also has no idea. Rattles in dash and rear parcel shelf going over bumps or rough road Some channels on SXM would occasionally make a 'pop' noise, specifically BPM ch. 53 Entertainment system update - TSB NTB14-079 to fix occasional system crash/reboots, but did not fix the USB recognition problem. Did get SXM Replay with this update. Had to re-pair Bluetooth devices after flash. During repair of the rattles, mechanic broke a plastic tab on the child safety seat cover on rear parcel shelf. Part not in stock; had to order. During repair of rattle, the dash was not properly reassembled; there was a gap in the trim between the center console and the USB device cubby on the passenger side. Replace broken child safety seat latch cap

Power steering pump was noisy and low on fluid. Dealer topped off fluid and advised no leak found. Go figure. TSB was performed to install an acoustic mat over pump to minimize EPS Pump whine. Smell of coolant after shutting down hot car. Modality of bluetooth settings still an issue.

BACKUP CAMERA RESOLUTION 7" car display BAD - still NOT fixed and the dealer has tried other camera parts for the Altima. Since the resolution on the 5" display is OK, my guess is that the resolution of the camera & display don't match.

9000 miles: The problem was that one of the little rubber pads that was attached to the decklid fell off. I think this pad is to absorb some of the impact when closing the decklid. I used Loctite superglue to re-attach the rubber pad.
