Anyone have any thoughts on this? It's actually pressing on my nerve in the back of my leg above my knee. Tried a cushion, but really didnt work. Test drove and it was fine. Can I reupolster the front of the seat where the edge is without it affecting the heating element?

Family member bought a 2010 recently. It is too bad Nissan didn't take the time to modernize the center stack at all. It certainly is form over function, but at least it's easy to use and not some button fest like the Accord.
I also wish that at least the 3rd brake light was LED and that there was a handle on the inside for the trunk so you don't get fingerprints or fingers dirty closing the trunk. Small things that add up.

Yes this car has super hard driver/front passenger seats. I am getting a seat cushion but may have to have seat bottom reupholstered. W,T,F Nissan!!!
Nissan did do a great job on the rest of the car though. It is quiet, and smooth riding with a very sporty handling and nice tight, precise steering. The 2.5 4 cylinder is the best compromise between fuel economy and power I have driven. I am now sold on the CVT transmission. It is smoother and faster to adjust gear ratios then any 4/5/6 speed tranny. I find the car to be fast and fun to drive, when your but isn't hurting.
Oh yeah, the foot actuated parking brake sucks. Anyone know what Nissan did to the CA legal Altima that makes it 5HP less then the 50 State Altima?

Oct 13, 2010 (6:56 pm)
I recently purchased a 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S. I only have 500 miles on it but notice when the car is full until ¾ a tank I here a sloshing noise that results in a knocking sound when slowing down, backing up, etc in the rear of the vehicle. The sound seems to be the fuel moving around the tank, but it is quite loud, and usually results in a few knocking sounds each time I hear it. I do not even need to be traveling at high speeds to hear this noise. I have never heard anything like this on a vehicle and was wondering if anybody has had any similar experiences. I took it to the dealer and they hear the noise, but according to them it is common in the 2010 Altimas. Any thoughts or suggestions? It only seems to occur until about ¾ tank, but it is loud and alarming!

Anybody know how to access the headlights on a 2010 Altima? I just bought HID Lights for it but cannot access the headlight bulbs.

I have been hearing the same noise as you. It's very frustrating as we've only had the car since March. I also hear a shaking noise within the glove box door. I don't know if it's worth bringing these items up to service when I go in for maintenance in a couple of weeks.

I have around 4K miles on my 2010 2.5S Altima. I wanted to get some feedback/opinions from other Altima owners. So far the car has been great.
Is the 2010 better then the 2007-2009? How accurate is the onboard MPG calculator? When driving on the highway, the VDC light turns on sometimes, why does this happen?
