#2180 of 2710 '07 Altima...poor radio reception
Feb 04, 2008 (6:31 pm)
I purchased a new 2007 Nissan Altima from a dealer in a large city, about 35 miles from my home. When I got the car home, my radio reception was zero. While at the dealer, the reception on the local city stations was excellent. I took the car back. They SAID they replaced the radio. Same thing. When I got home nothing. The scan won't even pick anything up. My 2001 Toyota Camry, with the same antenna set-up, (rear window) picks up stations 75 miles away, crystal clear. The CD player,& aux for my ipod work fine. Has anyone else experienced a problem similar to this? I've had people tell me that the newer cars have FM modulators in them for after market use. They said they cause interference with the FM signal. I'm trying to get back with the dealer, but, he has went stealth on me. The car has only 7500 miles on it. So it is still under warrenty. I'd appreciate any help.

After 46k, the time has come to bid farewell to my OEM Bridgestones. What have others out there gone with? I was just looking at some Hankook Optimas in Pep Boys. They have a great mileage warranty and are a good deal at buy 3 get 1 free but I don't know anyone that's ever had them. What does everyone think?

I had Hankook tires as original equipment on a 2005 Chevy Aveo, and only got about 12K miles out of the front tires...but, the Aveo is rumored to be really hard on front tires, so it might not be the tires...

I know a lot of people who really like the yokohama tires. at least from the standpoint of performance vs price.

I've had this problem since my was 30K, 3 years ago. Now it's 110K. I went to dealership 4 times, and they claimed they couldn't hear the sound. We even drove together, but the service manager insisted that he couldn't hear the sound.
There is a service bulletin that you can find in this edmunds.
Anyway, my car runs fine, in that area, even though I would hear rattling from time to time.

Once the OEM tires worn, I replaced them with Kumho - very satisfying, much better (and cheaper) than the OEM (Continental). I have Yokohama Avid TRZ currently on the car, since I think it has better value.

I have the same model. I have not had a noise problem. Replaced my OEM's with Goodrich, size 225. Costco told me that I could go up and the they are made by Michelin. I have no problems. I thought the law was that OEM tire replacement had to be the same exact size?

Can anyone tell me how to remove the sideview mirror so I can replace it myself? I am having trouble getting it off.

This text was taken from the service manual....sorry, but I couldn't copy the associated diagrams that go with it....Hopefully, this info will assist you...
1. Turn the mirror glass surface upward.
2. Apply a protective tape (A) to mirror housing. Insert a suitable
tool (B) into the concave gap between the mirror holder (1) and
mirror motor (2) Push up tabs (3) (two locations) on the mirror
holder to disengage the lower part of mirror holder, and remove
the mirror body assembly.
When pushing up tabs (3), do not forcefully push up only one
concave position but try to push up two concave positions.
3. Remove the mirror body (1) from the mirror housing assembly
4. Disconnect the two terminals from the mirror heater connector.
5. Remove the screws and power unit from the housing.
1. Install the mirror motor.
2. Install the mirror cover.
3. Place mirror holder bracket and mirror body assembly (actuator) in a horizontal position.
4. Connect two terminals on the heater installed mirror.
5. Engage the upper tabs on the mirror body (1) onto the mirror
motor (2) Then press the lower side of mirror face until a click
sound is heard to engage the lower tabs.
After installation, visually make sure lower two tabs are securely
engaged from the bottom of mirror face.
Make sure to insert the harness terminals into the correct connector.
Do not confuse the locations.

If by Goodrich you mean BF Goodrich, they're not part of Michelin but they are good. BFG is American and Micheline are French
I think that I'm going to go with the BFG Traction TA. They're 91 a pice at BJs and I know a few people with them that are pleased. I always had good luch with BFGs. I love the Michelins that I put on my wife's Pathfinder but the Alt doesn't get driven enough to justify that extra expense. I'm hoping that BJs will have that coupon in the next couple of weeks
