Flee from Nissan vehicles. They have the worst know transmissions in the market. Simply go to Google, and query consumer report for the car you're interested in, read reviews from both edmunds.com and cars.com. and make a decision.

On Google, for example type : 2014 Nissan Altima consumer reviews. Then check owners comments.

In addition, when checking reviews, it's important to be mindful of the date the review was made.

If I'm looking into a 2010 Nissan Altima for instance, I'll be looking into reviews posted between 2016-2020. Since I'll most likely be buying one that is close to or above the 100k mile mark, I can get a more detailed picture of what to expect.

Their CVTs fail way before 100k miles, more like around 60k.

For any car you intend to buy, if it has a CVT, research via Google to ensure it wasn't produced by JATCO. They make CVTs for Nissan and some other companies... And their end product is nothing to write home about

Your mechanic loves you. Nissan makes terrible and less durable cars. They become serious money pits as they age. I had a terrible experience with them and will never buy another. Toyota all the way

Thanks for the kind words cool

Yes. He's quite good but you'll pay more for services rendered.

Getting a Good Mechanic in PH is not something common.. So paying for a good Service is not a problem

Truth is Chuks himself is good. I noticed some that some of his workers aint that good. He can be very very busy to even monitor what his boys are doing. Its always better if he handles your car himself. But how many cars can he possibly handle in a day?

My major turnoff is his fees. At times these fees cant be justified.

This is rather subjective. Would you rather pay so high simply because there ain't good mechanics around? I try to match fees charged with the level of services rendered. This is where Chuks misses it.

This is very apt. And its where Gazzuzz really impressed me. He's a lot more hands on.

As for his fees, I have stopped bothering myself.

One thing I noticed about Kazeems no matter how good they are is, they are only interested in temporary fixes. You take a vehicle there today and one week later, the problem is back again. My vehicle is very important to my work and I can't afford to have frequent downtime.

I try to do the little I can do myself, brake pads, air and engine filter change, engine mounts(rear not inclusive ) grin e.t.c and for more serious issues like axles, I take it to him.

.

I am not saying paying so high for service rendered is a way to go... But if He;s service is good and I am going to get value for my money... I won't mind.
