Nissan Awarded Motion to Dismiss Altima Floorboard Case

In the rusted floorboard case against Nissan, the automaker argued that implied warranty doesn’t last forever and “having fear of what might happen in the future doesn’t legally mean anything.”


The automaker claims the majority of rusted floorboard complaints started occurring 8 to 12 years after the cars were built. Attorneys for Nissan claim all accusations of fraud are false because the plaintiffs can’t show Nissan knew the floorboards would rust years after the cars rolled off the assembly lines.

Their motion to dismiss was eventually approved by the judge.
