Nissan Altima 2009 215000 miles

Asked by Feb 03, 2016 at 03:18 PM about the 2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is jerking from a standstill position and while in
motion anytime you increase speed. The dealership told
me that it is common given the miles I have on my car, is
that true?

The dealership just wants you to buy a new car, have a local mechanic look it over. Might be a misfire or vacuum leak, which is an easy repair.

Hope, My 2008 Altima 2.5 recently did the same thing. Took it to the Nissan dealership and Firestone and they both wanted $1,100 to fix it. Problem was an ignition coil. Take your baby (that's what I call mine) to an Autozone. They will plug in an engine warning light code tester and tell you exactly what is wrong with it. Replacing the ignition coils are a piece of cake, even for a repair challenged Gump like me. Best of all it only cost $300 for all four coils, took about 30-45 minutes. Best of luck!

Thank you perryjo, I appreciate your response and I will take your advice and take it to AutoZone. Yeah my dealership wanted to charge me $105 just to plug it up. I despise people that take advantage of people because they can. Prayerfully they can solve the issue so I can get buying a new car out of my head. Thanks again.
