My 2013 Nissan Altima was repurchased. Officially it was for the faulty transmissions. 2 new ones as well as numerous other pieces to fix the violent judders. However I had complained about the passenger occupant sensor deactivating the passenger airbag in every service trip as well. They replaced so many parts there numerous times.

After 9 months my old shit box finally surfaced at a used car dealer in Atlanta. Insanely priced (expensive) and according to their site a “Clean title”. That terrible car was not only a lemon but I was hit twice with over $20k worth of combined damage that was never repaired perfectly.

I wish I could do something to protect the next buyer. It's sad.
