04 March 2015 2009 Nissan Altima My daughter, age 24, stopped by a local walgreens after working as a personal trainer. it was late evening and the temperature was 15 degrees. she went to start her car (push button start) and it wouldn't start. she waited for 2 hours before someone could come help. this is an issue nissan is well aware of and has admitted is due to a "manufacturing irregularity". it's not a matter of if the part will fail but when the part will fail. while the car may be stationary, it none the less puts the driver at risk.
