Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima

2000 Nissan Maxima rotted chasis

I brought my 2000 Nissan Maxima to the dealer to have an alternator put in. They informed me that the chasis where the front engine mounts are was rotted and unsafe to drive. They also told me there was no fix. I find that hard to believe, that there's no fix. Is this common, other than that the car has been great. I really don't want to get rid of the car, what should I do. It has about 167k miles.

    i have a 2000 Maxima and the front frame under the radiator was rotten-this ties the motor mounts and front nose all together. The piece is replaceable but it is labor intense. Body shops will do the work ! This part was 220$ and labor was 400 $

    It was very helpful to know that it could be fixed. I would like to know what the piece is called so I can look further into this. I would like to search the web to purchase what I need to have the job done. Is this something that is replaced by just removing bolts or is it something that needs to be welded?

If you can find someone that does bodywork, you may be able to have them make the metal parts and weld them in.

It can be a lot of work and cost more than the car is worth, but just about anything can be fixed.

It may also help to get a second opinion at a bodyshop instead of the stealership.

Good luck

2000 maxima are famous for having bad coils - those cost about $350 if you dealer isn't trying to rip you off (otherwise they will charge $600). I also read you can get an aftermarket coil at Autozone.
