Summary

The contact owns a 2014 Nissan Altima. The contact stated that while his mother was driving in stop and go traffic, the vehicle stalled without warning. Due to the failure, the contact had the vehicle towed to his home.

Summary

My hood slammed open when I was driving on the parkway. I entered the parkway ( Route 28) in Pittsburgh, Pa during rush hour. Three to four cars entered the road seconds before me. While I attempted to gain speed to keep up with the rush hour traffic and avoid being hit by the on coming traffic my car hood slammed open. The auto body shop stated the fenders on both side need to be repaired or replaced. There may be damage to the hood, unknown until repair is performed. I had the hood latched recalled correction done to my car in late August or early September 2021. The latch is more prone to disengage after the repair. Nissan chooses not to make any repairs to my car.

Many people complain about the sunroof leaking and the compressor. This will be the second time having issues with compressor. It effects my defrost which can be a serious safety hazard. Water accumulates in the floor boards and the headliner which causes mold and mildew which leads to respiratory issues. I paid 1200 to replace the compressor one year ago and not I am having the same issues. I see many people talk about this issue online. Standing water on the floor boards and air does not cool.

Summary

I bought my used branded 2014 Nissan Altima 1-2 years ago and did not have any issues with it until recently. Earlier this summer I received 2 notifications for my vehicle 1.) Recall notice to Reprogram Transmission Control Module and the 2nd doc. I received was a doc. which stated Nissan had extended their CVT Transmission warranty for their 2013-2016 Nissan Altimas. Some weeks ago later I started to have issues with my vehicle as it was not driving properly. I then started contacting both my local Nissan and Corporate. Nissan confirmed my vehicle VIN was one of the vehicles with transmissions issues and that I needed a transmission replacement for a cost of $4,324.11. I then opened a case and Corporate as there have multiple complaints/class actions for the same reason and they came back and stated they could not assist because I was out of the warranty year/milage. Nissan delivered a faulty transmission which they were very aware of at some point after delivery and although my transmission held off before it completely needed to be replaced I am looking for Nissan to assist financially for a new transmission which they quoted me $4,324.11 as they manufactured and delivered a faulty transmission which is a common issue with these vehicles. There have been class-action suits regarding the Continuously Variable Transmissions (“CVTs”) in model year 2013–2016 Nissan Altima vehicles.

Summary

My 2014 Nissan Altima’s transmission has to be replaced. The Nissan dealership gave me a quote of $4,093.00 to replace it. The car starts to run fine, then when at a stop and go, the car doesn’t go when I step on the gas or is delayed in going and the RPM’s are high and it feels forced. I was on the freeway and the car lost speed which was very scary because I could’ve have caused an accident. My safety and that of others was put at risk. I’ve had to stop using the vehicle until I can repair this costly issue. There were not any lights or warning messages in the car when this happened. Now that I’ve done research I know that there are many complaints and lawsuits related to the transmission issues Nissan has had for many years and they’ve done nothing about it. They should take responsibility and issue a recall on these vehicles to correct the issue.

As many other complaints I have seen on here, the headlights on the car go dim over time. If we can switch the bulb, that would be great but that doesn't solve the issue. I can barely see at night when driving. I avoid driving at night because of that reason. The manufacturer should be responsible for replacing these for the customer. We shouldn't have to wait for someone to get hurt or worse before something is done about this.

Summary

I parked my car, I tried to exit my automobile. The front driver side door would not open, the handle being very loose. I had to climb over the console and exit the passenger side of the auto. At 82 years of age, this maneuver was something certainly not expected. After exiting the car, I tried the driver side door from the outside, the door opened. I drove the car to the Nissan service center. The service employee said that he has seen this happen about 3 or 4 times and that it was a poorly designed This interior. He quoted me a price of $500 to $600 to fix the problem. I would hate to think of my husband who has arthritis as well as circulatory problems being in this situation. God forbid if someone had to exit the car in an emergency. I wouldn't want to think of being trapped in this vehicle if an emergency exit was warranted.

Summary

My mother in law was driving this vehicle with 3 of her grandchildren (one was my son). She noticed the car seemed squirrelly on the highway. They stopped at a Restaurant and called me. I drove there and took a look. The right rear wheel was at a terrible angle. I looked underneath and noticed the right rear control arm was nearly broken apart. Picture will be attached. This could have ended much differently. The car was towed to a shop and they noticed both the left and right control arms needed to be replaced as they were both rusted out. This is on a car that was kept in a garage it's entire life. The shop told us there is a recall for Altimas for this but not for our VIN number. Why this recall was not for the vehicle is unbelievable.

Summary

On May 9, 2014, I took in my 2014 Nissan Altima (which was still under warranty) to the dealership to repair the airbag sensor light since it came on even with someone in the passenger seat who weighed over 130 pounds. The Nissan service technician checked it and failed to duplicate the concern. Sometime after that, Nissan performed a recall on the sensor. After the recall, I again took the car in as the sensor still came on periodically incorrectly. This was on 10/11/16. At that time, they said the programming had not been completed and so they completed it. This also did not fix the sensor. I took it in again on May 10, 2017. The notes on the repair order say: "Customer states intermit when passenger is occupies in front passenger seat the passenger side air bag light comes on check and advise. No active codes. Performed zero point reset." Nothing was found again. Frustrated, I didn't know what to do. Fast forward to today (August 23, 2021), I took it in to finally resolve the issue as I am interested in selling it soon. I was shocked that they came back and said it would cost me $1010.68 to fix something that I have tried to get them to fix for 7 years. This faulty sensor is dangerous and they have refused to fix something that never worked from the start despite there being a recall.

On my 2014 Nissan Altima, sometimes from a stop when accelerating there is a delay. RPM's do not go up, just no movement. But if you leave the gas pedal engaged when the motor decides to work it hits hard. The danger is entering traffic. It's very scary. If it was to happen to my wife she would panic and press the accelerator more and that also creates a whole different situation... I have read that "Nissan" is not claiming any responsibility for this problem and actually hasn't fixed any customers cars because they cannot recreate this failure! Thank you, Tom

The headlights have deteriorated so badly that I cannot see to drive at night. A quick search online reveals this is a very common problem with this model. I bought the car new and it has been very well maintained. The reflective internal coating on the headlight assembly deteriorates apparently due to the high heat of the halogen bulbs. This is a tremendous safety issue. Please due the right thing and force them to recall these cars to fix this very dangerous situation.

Summary

Twice in 2 months my hood popped opened while driving on the interstate with my family in the car. The second time it popped open I was in the HOV lane which consisted of only one lane so it was quite the scare especially because there was no where safe that I could pull over. I took it to the car dealer shortly after the incident occurred and they maintenance the secondary hood latch but never did anything to the primary hood latch which should have never had opened especially while I was driving. I put in a claim with Nissan regarding the primary hood latch disengaging on its own two times in 2 months. I specifically told them numerous times that I do not feel safe driving my car anymore in that I would like to be financially compensated because now I have to go out and purchase another vehicle. I explained to them that I did not plan on buying a new car especially because my Nissan only had 77,000 MIles on it and was paid in full. I had also told them that I'm on a fixed income and having to purchase a new vehicle along with taking on car payments would cost me and my family a tremendous financial hardship. As of today Nissan has not done anything to compensate me. They are saying that I must have accidentally disengaged the primary hood latch both times the hood popped open.

We worry that the airbag may not deploy during an accident because the seat cannot sense the people sitting on it. It is definitely dangerous The problem has been identified by a Nissan dealer. The vehicle was inspected by the manufacturer. The airbag light stays on, even after the dealer clearing the code. It seems a lot of Nissan Altima have a similar problem.

While driving my car the component snapped/popped and caused me to lose control of my car and crashing into a curb in front of a pole. No warning lights came on prior to this happening. I have reached out to the manufacturer with no satisfactorily acceptable resolution. Currently I am in the hospital. The police was on the scene and the vehicle was towed to my residence due to being inoperable. I am physically, mentally and emotionally affected by this matter. Consumer stated she noticed a campaign but not a recall and her VIN was not included.

Summary

On 5/17/21 I had just left Walmart in Abington on my way to pickup my glasses. After picking up my glasses i felt wobble in the driver's side rear tire. I pulled over on Pine St. and checked the lug nuts on each wheel. Everything seemed okay. I then noticed a traction sign on the dashboard. I put on my hazard lights and drove home approximately a mile or two. When I got home I backed the car up and when I got out I notices the rear wheel drivers side bending inward at the top. I had Westgate Towing tow it after approved by AAA to Bourne's Auto for repair where i had bought the car and purchased a repair/warranty contract. Nothing was covered. No rental for a week. Paid almost $911.47 for the repair. Worried it could happen on other side. Diagnosis: Left Rear Lower Control Arm & Lateral Arm and Alignment needed.

Summary

While turning onto the entrance ramp to the highway, the lower rear control arm on the passenger side cracked and separated from the rest of the vehicle. The only thing holding the wheel on to the vehicle was a suspension coil. Steering and control of the vehicle became intermittent and I had no idea what was happening. I was driving with my pregnant daughter in the passenger seat. The "slippery road" warning light appeared on the dashboard but no other warnings or alerts. We were not injured. The vehicle was towed to our automotive repair shop. The auto repair noted that they had fixed this issue on Nissan Altima in the past and the repair was covered by Nissan. The nissanassist website states there is "a service campaign in states with high road salt usage to replace the rear suspension lower link. On some affected vehicles, and under severe corrosion conditions, one of the rear lower suspension links may corrode and separate at the bushing joint area". I live in Buffalo, NY area which is a high-salt state. Nissan will not cover this repair ($1146.57 includes NYS taxes) because the campaign does not include my VIN and was for 2013 models; my vehicle is 2014. The auto repair shop told us that the lower control arm in my 2014 vehicle was a 2013 part, so it was subject to the same defect that prompted the 2013 recall. Nissan refuses any assistance with this repair and says the VIN number is not included on the lower suspension link repair. If this type of corrosion in a high salt state resulting in breakage is a known covered issue with the 2013 model, and my 2014 model Nissan was assembled with the 2013 control arm parts, then my vehicle should not be excluded.

Summary

When the car is at a complete stop and the light turns green and it’s time to go it has a small delay for about 4-6 seconds where the car won’t move. It picks up after those 4-6 seconds. Once you turn off the car it resets itself but later on through the day it happens again . It happens to me about 2 times a day. It’s extremely scary when you’re in traffic and your car Just sits there because you can’t go.

Summary

The low beam lights offer NO light, which is extremely dangerous when driving at night and also in hazardous weather conditions. I can't see the road at all and am forced to use my high-beams. I have replaced the bulbs at least twice now and still no improvement. It is a critical issue Nissan needs to address because you can't see the road, other cars, wildlife, etc. They are putting everyone who has this model in life-threatening danger.

Summary

THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR LOWER CONTROL ARM SEPARATED FROM THE REAR SUBFRAME WHILE DRIVING THE VEHICLE AT ~50 MPH. THE FAILURE AT ~50MPH COULD EASILY RESULT IN LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE SINCE THE REAR WHEEL IS NO LONGER FULLY CONNECTED TO THE VEHICLE. THE STRESS OF ONE CONTROL ARM FAILING COULD RESULT IN THE OTHER FAILING AT THE SAME TIME IF THE CORROSION PROGRESSES EVENLY ON BOTH SIDES. THE 2013 MODEL ALTIMA IS COVERED UNDER A SERVICE BULLETIN TO HAVE THE LOWER CONTROL ARMS REPLACED AT NO COST DUE TO THE RISK OF FAILURE. THE SAME FAILURE OBVIOUSLY OCCURS ON THE 2014 MODELS BUT IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE CURRENT SERVICE BULLETIN. THE FAILURE IS CAUSED BY CORROSION AT THE CONNECTION TO THE REAR SUBFRAME.

Summary

MY WIFE AND I STARTED TO NOTICE THE DIMNESS OVER A YEAR AGO, BUT IT BECAME MORE APPARENT WHEN WE DROVE THROUGH SOME BACK COUNTRY WITH WINDING ROADS FOR A WEEKEND GETAWAY WITH THE FAMILY. IT WAS STRESSFUL, SCARY AT TIMES AND OBVIOUSLY A HAZARD. I PRETTY MUCH HAD TO KEEP MY HIGH BEAMS ON FOR THE WHOLE STRETCH OF THE DARK ROADS ESPECIALLY ON SHARP AND BLIND TURNS. SINCE THAT EXPERIENCE, WE TRY TO STEER CLEAR OF TAKING TRIPS IN THE EVENING... BUT EVEN NOW ON REGULAR ROUTINE DRIVES ON FREEWAYS OR EVEN PULLING UP TO MY COURT THE DIM BEAMS ARE MORE OBVIOUS THAN EVER. I WENT TO GET MY OIL CHANGE SERVICE DONE TODAY, AND MENTIONED MY ISSUE WITH THE HEADLIGHTS AND INQUIRED ABOUT REPLACEMENTS. THEY SUGGESTED RUNNING A DIAGNOSTIC TO IDENTIFY THE SOURCE BUT IT WOULD COST $375 OR SOMETHING JUST TO DO THAT... I MENTIONED THAT THEY RECENTLY DID A DIAGNOSTIC (THAT I PAID FOR WHEN THEY WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT ANOTHER CONCERN I HAD WITH THE BRAKE LIGHT GOING AND NO ISSUES WERE FOUND, JUST NEEDED TO TOP OFF THE BRAKE FLUID) SO I PASSED ON IT... I THEN INQUIRED ABOUT REPLACEMENTS AND WAS TOLD THEY WOULD BE ABOUT $400 TO REPLACE BOTH SIDES. FROM THAT POINT I GOOGLED COST TO COMPARE AND CAME ACROSS ARTICLES, FORUMS THAT BROUGHT TO LIGHT THAT I WASN'T ALONE WITH MY CONCERN AND ISSUE WITH THE HEADLIGHTS. AND SOME COMMENTS MENTIONED REPLACEMENTS SUCH AS HID OR LED DIDN'T DO MUCH TO HELP THE DIM BEAM. I AM NOT SURE NOW IF I WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY TO REPLACE OR KEEP GOOGLING ON WAYS TO HELP FIX THE PROBLEM IN A MORE COST EFFECTIVE WAY. HOPEFULLY THERE IS A RECALL BECAUSE THE DIM LOW BEAM IS A HAZARD THAT FIXING WILL SAVE LIVES AND MAKE IT LESS STRESSFUL AT NIGHT TO DRIVE... ESPECIALLY WHEN CARRYING SPECIAL CARGO.

I RECENTLY TOOK MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA IN FOR NEW SHOCKS AND STRUTS TO MY LOCAL MECHANIC. WHEN THE MECHANIC COMPLETED THE WORK ON THE SHOCKS AND STRUTS HE COMPLETED AN INSPECTION OF OTHER PARTS OF THE VEHICLE AND FOUND THAT THE PASSENGER SIDE REAR CONTROL ARM WAS CRACKED AND THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR CONTROL ARM WAS VERY RUSTED AND CORRODED, BUT HE COULD NOT FIND A CRACK. HE THEN ADVISED ME THAT MY VEHICLE WAS UNSAFE TO DRIVE. HE ALSO ADVISED ME THAT HE HAD REPLACED NUMEROUS NISSAN ALTIMA REAR CONTROL ARMS BEFORE, HE WAS TOLD THAT NISSAN HAD A CAMPAIGN TO REPLACE REAR CONTROL ARMS DUE TO THEM CRACKING. I THEN HAD MY VEHICLE TOWED TO THE LOCAL NISSAN DEALERSHIP. AFTER SPEAKING WITH THE SERVICE MANAGER HE ADVISED ME THAT ONLY 2013 NISSAN ALTIMAS THAT ARE IN AREAS OF THE COUNTRY THAT HAVE SALT ON THE ROAD AND 2014 NISSAN ALTIMAS IN CANADA ARE BEING FIXED BY NISSAN. I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA AND LIVE IN OHIO. NISSAN SHOULD BE EXPANDING THEIR CAMPAIGN TO 2014 VEHICLES THAT ARE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE AS THE 2013'S. LUCKILY, I WAS NOT DRIVING MY VEHICLE AND MY MECHANIC FOUND THE CRACK DURING AN INSPECTION. IF HE DIDN'T FIND IT, I ALONG WITH MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS COULD HAVE POSSIBLY BEEN INJURED IF THE CONTROL ARM COMPLETELY CRACKED IN HALF AND CAUSED ME TO CRASH. I HOPE NISSAN ISN'T WAITING FOR A FATALITY TO CONSIDER A RECALL. $1300.00 LATER I AM GOING TO PICK UP MY VEHICLE FROM THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP. CLASS:19-002 REF#: NTB 19-082 ID#: P9324

WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT MY DIM HEADLIGHTS ARE SO DIM ITS AS IF THEY ARE NOT EVEN ON. IT DOESNT MATTER IF IM DRIVING IN THE CITY OR COUNTRY ITS HARD AND GETTING HARDER TO SEE THE HIGHWAY. IVE COME CLOSE TO HAVING AN ACCIDENT SEVERAL TIMES. ONLY PREVENTION WAS SWITCHING TO HIGH BEAM TO BE ABLE TO SEE. SO IF I END UP HAVING AN ACCIDENT DUE TO THIS SOMEBODYS GOING TO BE SERVED AND SPEND MORE MONEY THAN WHAT THEY COULD HAVE BY PREVENTING IT. THIS IS DANGEROUS. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS? HOW MANY ACCIDENTS WERE CAUSED BY THIS THAT RESULTED IN DEATH? WE DONT KNOW BC THEY ARE DEAD!

DRIVING HOME AT 45 MPH ON A CITY STREET, HEARD A POP, LOST CONTROL, WAS ABLE TO DRIVE SLOW WITH HAZARDS TO REPAIR SHOP.WANING LIGHTS CAME ON IMMEDIATELY. RECEIVED NOTIFICATION THAT CONTROL ARM SNAPPED AND OTHER CONTROL ARM CRACKED. GOOGLE AND FOUND SAFETY NOTICE FOR 2013/2014 FOR RELATED TO STATES WITH HIGH ROAD SALT. US AND CANADA. US IS VAGUE POINT TO ONLY 2013 WITH CANADA STATING BOTH 13 AND 14. EXPENSIVE REPAIR THAT SHOULD BE COVERED BY NISSAN IS VERY VAGUE TO AVOID PAYING THESE REPAIR COST.. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURE, THESE WAS DEFIANTLY A RUST ISSUE CAUSED FROM ROAD SALT. I LIVE IN ILLINOIS.

Summary

DRIVING HOME FROM WORK YESTERDAY, WHILE DRIVING 65 ON THE EXPRESSWAY, I EXPERIENCED AN ODD 'SHIFT' IN MY CAR, GIVING AN ODD SWAYING SENSATION'I THOUGHT I MAY HAVE HAD A FLAT TIRE. SINCE I WAS CLOSE TO A GAS STATION, I PROCEEDED ROUGHLY A HALF MILE ON THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD AND EVENTUALLY TO THE STATION. UPON INSPECTION I FOUND THAT A PORTION OF THE WHEEL ASSEMBLY HAD COMPLETELY BROKEN FROM THE FRAME. I HAVE SINCE LEARNED THAT NISSAN ACKNOWLEDGES THE PROBLEM AND ISSUED A "SERVICE CAMPAIGN" FOR 2013 ALTIMAS IN THE US BUT 2013 AND 2014 IN CANADA. THEIR DESCRIPTION OF HOW THIS PART FAILS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO MY CAR AND I LIVE IN THE "SALT BELT" THAT THEY SAY CONTRIBUTES TO THIS ISSUE. I HAVE CALLED THEIR CONSUMER AFFAIRS BUT WAS TOLD THAT THEY DO NOT RECOGNIZE THIS AS NISSAN'S RESPONSIBILITY AND ARE NOT WILLING TO REPAIR WHAT IS ALREADY BROKEN OR REPLACE WHAT WILL MOST LIKELY FAIL ON THE OTHER SIDE!

NOT KNOWING ABOUT THE SERVICE CAMPAIGN (THAT CAME OUT IN 10/2019- I PURCHASED THE CAR IN 02/2020) I TOOK IT UPON MYSELF TO GET THE PART FIXED. ALMOST $500 OUT OF MY POCKET. FAST FORWARD 10 MONTHS, DRIVING 70 ON THE HIGHWAY, DIDN'T HIT A POT HOLE OR ANYTHING... THE DRIVERS SIDE SNAPPED. THIS IS CLEARLY A SAFETY ISSUE AS I LOST CONTROL OF MY CAR FOR A SOLID 15 SECONDS. HOW ARE ONLY THE 2014 ALTIMAS IN CANADA ELIGIBLE FOR FREE REPAIRS BUT A CAR IN NY STATE IS NOT? I HAVE A CASE OPEN AND WILL BE EXPECTING A CALL ON 02/08.

Summary

I WAS TRAVELING ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY ON JANUARY 25, 2021, WHEN I HAD NO ACCELERATION. DESPITE ATTEMPTING TO ACCELERATE, I HAD NO POWER. THE RPM NEEDLE WAS ALMOST TO THE RED ZONE. I WAS ABLE TO COAST OFF OF THIS HIGHWAY, ONTO ANOTHER HIGHWAY. I SHUT THE VEHICLE OFF, LET IT SIT FOR A FEW MINUTES, AND RESTARTED IT. I STILL HAD NO FOWARD GEAR. I HAD TO HAVE THE VEHICLE TOWED TO A LOCAL NISSAN DEALER (SANSONE, NEPTUNE, NJ). AFTER AN EXHAUSTIVE BATTLE BETWEEN THE DEALER AND NISSAN NORTH AMERICA, IT WAS DETERMINED MY TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED, BASED ON THE COMPUTER CODES. THE COST IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY - THE EXTENSION COVERED UP TO 84K MILES, MY ALTIMA HAS 101K. I WAS TREATED POORLY BY THE DEALERSHIP, AND NISSAN CORPORATE. I NEVER GOT NOTIFICATION ABOUT ANY RECALLS, APPARENTLY NOTICES WERE SENT TO A FORMER EMPLOYMENT ADDRESS - I RETIRED FROM THAT PLACE 3 YEARS PRIOR TO PURCHASING THE ALTIMA IN 2015. MY RECORDS SAY ITS A 2015, YOURS INDICATE IT'S A 2014. THE TRANSMISSION IS FAULTY, ACCORDING TO MY RESEARCH. THANKFULLY, AS A POLICE OFFICER, I HAD THE NECESSARY SKILLS TO GET OFF THE ROADWAY, DESPITE ALMOST BEING IN A SERIOUS COLLISION. THIS IS AN EGREGIOUS SAFETY ISSUE, AND NISSAN'S LACK OF CONCERN IS ABHORRENT. I CANNOT AFFORD THE $4400 PRICE TAG TO REPLACE THIS TRANSMISSION, WHICH WAS POORLY MANUFACTURED. THE DEALERSHIP "FIXED" THE "COMPUTER UPDATE" TO THE TRANSMISSION, AS WELL AS "LUBING" AND NOT REPLACING THE THE FAULTY HOOD LATCH. NOTABLY, THEY ALLEGEDLY DROVE THE CAR THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, BEFORE DECLARING THAT THE TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE FACT THAT THIS TRANSMISSION JUST QUITS, WHILE DRIVING 65 MPH, IS A DEATH TRAP.

I HAVE BEEN HEARING A CLUNKING SOUND FROM REAR OF CAR FOR FEW YEARS MULTIPLE TRIPS TO DEALERS AND HAD THEM LOOK INTO NOISE.

I WAS RETURNING HOME FROM TRIP TO STORE AND WHEN ENTERING MY DRIVEWAY OFF PUBLIC SIDE ROAD @ ABOUT 2MPH THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR CONTROL ARM BROKE CLEAN OFF FROM THE MOUNT BOLTED TO THE FRAME AND THE TIRE CRASHED INTO THE INNER FENDER AND TWISTED TO ~45 DEGREE ANGLE. I KNOW THAT THE 2013 HAS A RECALL IN USA AND CANADA AND CANADA ALSO HAS RECALL FOR 2014 FOR THE SAME PROBLEM. IF THIS HAD BROKE WHILE I WAS ON EXPRESSWAY 5 MINUTES EARLIER THIS COULD HAVE CAUSED SERIOUS INJURY TO MYSELF AND PASSENGERS NOT TO MENTION ANY BODY ELSE THAT COULD HAVE IN MY PATH. WHEN DEALER REPLACED DRIVER SIDE HE SAID THAT THE PASSENGER SIDE NEEDED TO BE REPLACED ALSO AS IT WAS SHOWING STRESS CRACKS.

Summary

I'VE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH NISSAN REGARDING THIS, BUT THEY STATED THAT THE NHTSA IS THE AGENCY RESPONSIBLE FOR ISSUING RECALLS BEFORE THEY WOULD ADDRESS ANY VEHICLE ISSUES OUTSIDE OF WARRANTY. I WAS TOLD THAT MY VEHICLE HAS ABOUT $1,500 WORTH OF REPAIRS NEEDED BECAUSE OF SOME RUST/CORROSION ISSUES WITH THE REAR LOWER LINKS. AFTER DOING A LITTLE RESEARCH, I DISCOVERED THAT THERE IS A RECALL FOR THIS ISSUE, BUT IT ONLY APPLIES TO 2013 ALTIMAS IN THE US, BUT BOTH 2013 AND 2014 ALTIMAS IN CANADA. SO I WANTED TO REACH OUT TO YOU AND SEE IF YOU COULD ADD A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO THIS AND HOW IT MAKES ANY SENSE THAT THERE IS A KNOWN SAFETY ISSUE WITH THE 2014 ALTIMAS AND SO THEY OFFER A PROGRAM LIKE THIS, BUT THEN LEAVE OUT THE 2014 MODEL IN THE US, BUT INCLUDE IT IN CANADA? IT'S THE SAME MODEL VEHICLE REGARDLESS OF IF IT'S IN CANADA OR THE US AND I FEEL QUITE CONFIDENT THAT CANADA'S ROAD SALT USAGE IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN MINNESOTA'S. AS IS EVIDENCED BY THE FACT THAT MY VEHICLE HAS THIS ISSUE AND THAT THE 2013 MODELS WERE INCLUDED WITH THIS CAMPAIGN FOR SELECT US STATES. SO IF YOU COULD ADD THE 2014 ALTIMAS IN THE US TO THIS CAMPAIGN/RECALL, IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I HAVE A VIDEO SHOWING THE ISSUES FROM WALSER NISSAN IF WOULD BE HELPFUL. PLEASE ADVISE.

I OWN A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA, OVER THE TIME OF OWNERSHIP I HAVE NOTICED THE HEADLIGHTS GETTING DIMMER AND DIMMER, I ASSUMED IT WAS THE BULBS AGING AND REPLACED THIS ON 02/15/2020. THE NEW BULBS (SILVANIA SILVERSTARS) WERE SUPPOSED TO BE BRIGHTER. THERE WERE NOT MUCH BRIGHTER. LATER WHEN I WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP THEY SUGGESTED NEW HEADLIGHT ASSEMBALLIES AS THE CHROME PAINTING ON THE INSIDES OF THE LENSES HAS FADED AND AS A RESULT IS NOT REFLECTING MUCH LIGHT ONTO THE ROAD. THE ESTIMATED COST OF THIS REPAIR WAS 800$. I HAVE NEVER OWNED A CAR WHERE THE HEADLIGHTS HAVE FAILED IN THIS MATTER AND AS A STUDENT IT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND DANGEROUS TO HAVE LOW BEAMS THAT ARE SO DIM THEY DO NOT EVEN APPEAR TO BE ON AT NIGHT. GOOGLING THIS ISSUES SHOWS MANY FORUMS WHERE PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SAME ISSUE I WAS HAVING WITH NEW HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLIES FIXING THE ISSUE

I HAVE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY HEADLIGHTS. THEY ARE EXTREMELY TOO DIM. I CAN BARELY SEE AT NIGHT. MY BRIGHT LIGHTS WORK GREAT. SOMETIMES I FEEL AS IF THEY ARE NOT ON. I HAVE CHANGED THE BULBS SEVERAL TIMES. IT IS MUCH DIMMER ON THE DRIVER SIDE THAN THE PASSENGER, BUT THE PASSENGER SIDE HEADLIGHT IS STILL DIM. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. I'M NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NOW. I'M NOT SURE WHY THIS HAS NOT BEEN RECALLED BY NOW. SOMEONE WILL MOST DEFINITELY GET INTO AN ACCIDENT. I HAVE ALMOST WRECKED SEVERAL TIMES BECAUSE OF THIS. THIS NEED TO BE A MAIN CONCERN FOR NISSAN. THEY ARE RISKING OUR LIVES. HOW MANY BULBS DO I HAVE TO CHANGE? ON DARK ROADS I HAVE TO PUT MY BRIGHT LIGHTS ON BUT WHEN ANOTHER VEHICLE IS COMING THEN I HAVE TO CUT MY BRIGHT LIGHTS OFF. WHEN I DO THIS THEN I FEEL AS IF I'M GOING TO GO OFF THE ROAD. I CANNOT SEE AT ALL. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT PROBLEM AND NEED TO BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY. I'M PRETTY SURE THAT THERE HAS BEEN ACCIDENTS BECAUSE OF THIS. I HAD TO PUT A DATE ON THIS BUT THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE LAST YEAR. I'M A NURSE AND I HAVE TO LEAVE EARLY IN THE AM FOR WORK ON A DARK ROAD. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

ON 9/9/2020 MY WIFE WAS DRIVING OUR 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA HOME FROM AN ERRAND WHEN SHE FELT THAT THE STEERING WAS COMPROMISED. AFTER ARRIVING HOME SHE ASKED ME TO DRIVE THE CAR. I PROCEEDED TO BACK OUT OF OUR DRIVEWAY AND AFTER TRAVELING ONLY ABOUT 6' THE DRIVER REAR WHEEL 'DROPPED'. BEFORE EXITING THE VEHICLE I TOLD HER THAT IT FELT LIKE THE WHEEL HAD FALLEN OFF. I CRAWLED UNDER THE VEHICLE AND FOUND THAT THE REAR DRIVER CONTROL ARM HAD COMPLETELY RUSTED THROUGH CAUSING THE PART TO FAIL. I SPOKE TO NISSAN CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND LEARNED THAT THERE WAS NOT AN OPEN RECALL FOR THE 2014 ALTIMA BUT THERE WAS FOR THE 2013 ALTIMA. I THEN DECIDED TO INVESTIGATE ON THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION WEBSITE. I LEARNED THAT THE 2013-2018 CONTROL ARM SHARE A SIMILAR DESIGN WHEN FURTHER READING NHTSA ACTION NUMBER EA 19002. I ALSO DISCOVERED THAT THERE WAS RECALL FOR THE 2014 ALTIMA IN CANADA AND WE LIVE 17 MILES FROM THE CANADIAN BORDER. I FEEL THAT THE RECALL FOR THIS PART SHOULD BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE MODEL YEAR 2014-2018 BECAUSE OF THE SHARED DESIGN.

WONT REPLACE AS THEY STATE CAR HAS TOO MANY MILES WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSTING OUT. IT STATES ON THEIR WEBSITE A SERVICE CAMPAIGN AGREEING THAT SEVERE CORROSION OCCURS IN STATES WITH HIGH ROAD SALT USAGE AND NEW YORK IS ONE OF THESE STATES. WHY ISNT THIS A RECALL? SHAME ON NISSAN. HAD WE BEEN ALERTED TO THIS SERVICE CAMPAIGN WE WOULD HAVE HAD IT INSPECTED ON A REGULAR BASIS TO AVOID THIS MISHAP. NISSAN ALSO STATED SINCE THE CAR WAS NOT TOTALED, THEY WILL DO NOTHING. PLEASE ALERT ANYONE WHO OWNS A NISSAN ALTIMA TO BE AWARE! WE WILL BE FIXING THIS CONTROL ARM AT OUR EXPENSE AS WELL AS THE OTHER CONTROL ARM AT OUR EXPENSE SO THAT THIS WILL MAKE THE CAR SAFE AND TO AVOID A MAJOR ACCIDENT OR DEATH. IF THE AIRBAG WAS DEFECTIVE, WOULD THAT MATTER OF THE MILEAGE OF THE CAR? ITS A SAFETY ISSUE!

THE SYSTEM THAT DETERMINES WHETHER THE PASSENGER AIRBAG WILL DEPLOY ON MY VEHICLE IS NOT FUNCTIONING AND IS DEFAULTING THE AIRBAG TO NOT DEPLOY. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO MY DEALER FOR A QUOTE AND WAS TOLD IT WILL COST UP TO $1,800.00 TO FIX. I KNOW THERE HAS BEEN AT LEAST ONE RECALL PERTAINING TO THIS SYSTEM ALREADY (RECALL NUMBER 15V681000). I ALSO ASKED IF THERE WAS A WAY TO HAVE THE AIRBAG ALWAYS SET TO DEPLOY BUT WAS TOLD THAT WAS NOT POSSIBLE. AN $1,800.00 FIX FOR A CRITICAL SAFETY FEATURE IS A HAZARD THAT WILL DRIVE PEOPLE TO ACCEPT UNDUE RISK. A RECALL FOR AFFECTED NISSAN VEHICLES TO REPLACE THE SYSTEM OR WHICH WOULD DEFAULT THE AIRBAGS TO DEPLOY WOULD MITIGATE THE RISK TO THE POPULATION.

Summary

BOTH THE LEFT AND RIGHT REAR CONTROL ARMS CRACKED DUE TO RUSTING. MY CAR OPERATES IN OHIO, A STATE THAT USES SALT TO CLEAR THE ROADS. ALL THE 2013 MODELS WERE RECALLED FOR THIS MANUFACTURING DEFECT, HOWEVER MY CAR WAS BUILT 9/29/13 AT THE START OF THE 2014 PRODUCTION. THEY WERE STILL USING THE SAME PARTS, SINCE AT THIS POINT THEY DID NOT KNOW THEY WERE DEFECTIVE, BUT DID NOT RECALL THE CARS INVOLVED TO BE REPAIRED. THE RESULTING LOSS OF CONTROL COULD BE FATAL IF IT HAPPENS ON THE FREEWAY. FORTUNATELY, MY CAR DID NOT EXPERIENCE THAT CATASTROPHIC LEVEL OF IMPACT. HOWVER, IF MY CAR WAS SHIPPED TO CANADA IT WOULD BE PART OF THAT AS THEY RECALLED ALL 2014'S. WHY ISN'T THAT THE CASE HERE AS THEY ALL CAME OFF THE SAME ASSEMBLY LINE WITH THE SAME PARTS. THIS NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED IN THE U.S. MY CAR STARTED MAKING VERY LOUD CLUNKING NOISES AS THE PARTS WERE CRACKING AND I STOPPED DRIVING IT AND HAD IT TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP. THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT SAFETY ISSUE, AND NISSAN KNOWS IT EXISTS, LOOK AT ONLIMNE REVIEWS WITH THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVING THIS ISSUE, INCLUDING YOUR OWN SITE, AND YOU CAN SEE JUST HOW BAD THIS ACTUALLY IS. PLEASE TAKE THE STEPS TO EXPAND THIS RECALL FOR THE SAKE OF ALL OF US WHO OWN THIS CAR.

WE PURCHASED A NISSAN ALTIMA SV, THE HEADLIGHTS HAVE PROGRESSIVELY GOTTEN SO DIM THAT AT NIGHT, IN RAIN, SNOW ETC. THEY PROVIDE NO ADEQUATE LIGHT TO LIGHT THE ROADWAY IN FRONT OF THE CAR. WE HAVE TO RESORT TO TURNING ON OUR HIGH BEAM ALMOST CONTINUOUSLY TO SEE THE ROAD AND OBSTACLES. WHAT WE HAVE FOUND OUT IS THAT IT IS A DEFECT IN MATERIALS AND IT WILL COST ME APPROXIMATELY $1000 TO FIX, WHICH I CANNOT AFFORD. AT THIS TIME NISSAN IS SILENT ON THE ISSUE. I FEEL LIKE THE LIVES OF MY FAMILY AND OTHERS ON THE ROADS ARE ENDANGERED BY THESE DEFECTIVE LIGHTS THAT NISSAN REFUSES TO ADDRESS. I HAVE HAD THE BULBS CHANGED AND IT DOES NOT IMPROVE THE HEAD LIGHT QUALITY.

Summary

MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA LOW BEAM HEAD LIGHTS ARE BECOMING DANGEROUSLY DIM TO DRIVE AT NIGHT. THEY HAVE BEEN WHAT I BELIEVE DIM FOR A FEW YEARS, BUT HAVE BEEN PROGRESSIVELY GETTING WORSE. TO THE POINT I FEEL IT IS NOW A SAFETY HAZARD FOR ME TO DRIVE AT NIGHT. AFTER DOING RESEARCH, I AM REALIZING THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH 2014-2106 NISSAN ALTIMA. I GUESS THE COATING INSIDE THE PROJECTOR BEAM LIGHT HOUSING WEARS OFF OR DETERIORATES PREVENTING A GOOD BEAM OF LIGHT. CHANGING TO A HIGHER QUALITY LIGHT BULB ALSO DOES NOT FIX THIS PROBLEM. ONLY WAY TO FIX IS APPARENTLY TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE LIGHT HOUSINGS WHICH FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND COST AROUND $1000 FROM NISSAN. I HAVE SEEN ENOUGH COMMENTS FROM OTHER NISSAN ALTIMAS WITH THIS SAME GENERATION, THAT I FEEL THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT NISSAN SHOULD BE ADDRESSING.

CALL THE DEALER THEY SAID IT WAS THE PROJECTION SYSTEM THAT ALOT OF THESE MODELS HAD THAT PROBLEM BUT IT WASN'T A RECALL YET. I CHECKED ON GOOGLE AND MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME ISSUE AND DON'T HAVE THE 1200.00 TO GET IT FIXED. WHEN I TURN MY LIGHTS ON DIM IT IS LIKE SOMEONE SHUT THEM OFF COMPLETELY. THIS CAR IS USELESS AT NIGHT AND I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER NISSAN BECAUSE OF THIS DANGEROUS PROBLEM THAT THEY SHOULD BE A RECALL ON AND ISN'T. SOMEONE WILL DIE IN THIS CAR ONE DAY I JUST HOPE I CAN GET RID OF IT BEFORE IT IS ME OR ONE OF MY GRANDKIDS. A CAR WITH NO LIGHTS ARE NIGHT IS A DEATH TRAP!!

I HAD A NEW TRANSMISSION PUT IN. NOW A LITTLE OVER A YEAR LATER THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING AGAIN. THE MECHANIC SAYS THAT ITS THE SAME PROBLEM DUE TO A FAULTY TRANSMISSION PART(CVT) TRANSMISSION. THIS SHOULD BE RECALL DUE TO NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS I HAVE SEEN AND MOSTLY THE DANGER IT IS CAUSING FOR NISSAN CUSTOMERS. THIS IS A HAZARDOUS AND COSTLY ISSUE. NISSAN SHOULD RECTIFY THIS IMMEDIATELY

I PURCHASED MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA WITH ONLY 6 MILES ON IT IN 2014. I ONLY DROVE MY CAR FROM SCHOOL TO HOME, AS THIS WAS MY WORK VEHICLE. I FINISHED PAYING FOR MY NISSAN IN NOVEMBER OF 2019. MY NISSAN RECENTLY REACHED 90,000 MILES AND BEGAN TO SHUT DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC. THE ENGINE BEGAN TO JERK AND IT WOULD NOT MOVE IT WERE PLACED IN DRIVE OR REVERSE. THEN AT TIMES WHEN PLACED IN DRIVE THE ENGINE WOULD SHAKE AND ROAR LOUDLY, AND SHUT OFF. MY DAD HAD TO COME AND TOW THE CAR IN TWICE DUE TO IT NOT SHUTTING DOWN ON THE INTERSTATE AND IN TRAFFIC. THE NISSAN WOULD JUST STOP ACCELERATING AND LOSE POWER. IF IT CRANKED BACK UP AT STOP LIGHTS OR STOP SIGNS IT WOULD ACCELERATE SO SLOWLY THAT I WOULD GET CAUGHT UNDER RED LIGHTS OR IN THE MIDDLE OF ON-COMING TRAFFIC. IT WOULD SLOWLY PICK UP SPEED WITH THE ACCELERATED PRESSED ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR, BUT THERE WOULD BE A BURNING SMELL THAT THE CAR WILL GIVE OFF AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THE ENGINE IS IN THE WRONG GEAR, WHILE IN DRIVE. *TR

HEAD LIGHTS BECAME VERY DIM OVER TIME, EVEN WITH NEW BULBS; EVENTUALLY COULD ONLY SEE WELL A FEW YARDS AHEAD OF THE CAR. OTHER CARS WE CURRENTLY OWN AND HAVE PREVIOUSLY OWNED HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM. AFTER SEARCHING FOR A SOLUTION ONLINE, HAD THE FULL HEAD LIGHT ASSEMBLY REPLACED ON BOTH SIDES. THIS RESOLVED THE PROBLEM. DEALER DID NOT INDICATE ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THIS PROBLEM AND WOULD NOT DO THIS FOR FREE, EVEN THOUGH THIS WAS SAFETY HAZARD. PURCHASED THE REPLACEMENT ASSEMBLIES FROM CARPARTS.COM. REPLACEMENT WAS DONE BY LEXINGTON AUTOWORKS.

MY LOW BEAM LIGHTS ARE BARELY LIGHTING UP THE ROAD EVEN AFTER CHANGING THE BULBS. IT'S COMING FROM THE SILVER HOUSING PART THAT HOLDS THE BULBS AND NISSAN NEEDS TO REPLACE THIS. I ALMOST HIT A PERSON WALKING LAST NIGHT. I WAS DRIVING DOWN A DARK ROAD GOING SLOW. I HAVE TO USE MY FOG LIGHTS JUST TO HELP ME OUT SOME AND IT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH LIGHTING. MY BRIGHTS WORK GREAT IT'S JUST THE LOW BEAM.

MY 17 YEAR OLD SON WAS DRIVING THE CAR ABOUT A MILE FROM OUR HOME (GOING ABOUT 20 MPH) WHEN HIT HIT A BUMP AND THE BACK AXEL BROKE. FORTUNATELY HE WAS CLOSE TO HOME WHEN THIS HAPPENED. HAD HE BEEN ON THE INTERSTATE, HE COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED. MY HUSBAND CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD THAT THIS IS A KNOWN DEFECT WITH NISSAN ALTIMAS FROM THIS YEAR BUT THAT OUR VEHICLE WAS NOT ON THE LIST OF VINS THAT QUALIFY FOR REIMBURSEMENT. WE REPAIRED THE VEHICLE WHICH COST ABOUT $400 IN LABOR AND $225.49 IN NISSAN PARTS. THE VEHICLE HAD ABOUT 80,000 MILES AT THE TIME. THIS SEEMS LIKE A CLEAR CASE OF FAULTY PARTS.

Summary

JUNE 2019, VEHICLE STARTED TO JUDDER, SHAKE AND STALLED OUT AT RED LIGHT. PUT THE CAR IN PARK, RESTARTED THE VEHICLE, PUT IT INTO DRIVE AND IT STALLED AGAIN. THIS HAPPENED 3 MORE TIMES UNTIL I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE. APPROACHING ANOTHER SET OF LIGHTS, VEHICLE SLOWING DOWN AND THE JUDDER AND SHAKING BEGAN, I DID NOT COME TO A COMPLETE STOP SO THE CAR DID NOT STALL. I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME. I THEN LET THE CAR SIT FOR 2 DAYS BEFORE I DROVE IT AGAIN AND WHEN I TEST DROVE IT AFTER THOSE 2 DAYS, THE CAR SEEMED TO BE BETTER, IT DID NOT STALL OUT. IT DID SHAKE A LITTLE AND JUDDER. NO PROBLEMS LIKE THAT OCCURRED UNTIL 3/9/2020. APPROACHING A RED LIGHT, CAR JUDDERS, STARTED SHAKING AND STALLED OUT. I THEN PUT THE CAR INTO PARK, RESTARTED, FROM PARK TO DRIVE, IT STALLED. I REPEATED THIS PROCESS FOR 5 MINUTES. I HAD TO GET OUT OF THE CAR AND PHYSICALLY PUSH THE CAR OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. 3/10/2020 DROVE THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP. SAME THING HAPPENED IN THE VEHICLE ON MY WAY THERE. JUDDERING, SHAKING AND STALLING. I WAS ABLE TO SLOW DOWN AND MAKE SURE I DID NOT LET THE VEHICLE COME TO A COMPLETE STOP BECAUSE IT WOULD STALL OUT. I WENT ON THE HIGHWAY BECAUSE THAT WAS THE EASIEST ROUTE. THE ENTIRE TIME THE CAR WAS SHAKING AND I WAS GOING 60MPH, WHICH WAS 5MPH UNDER SPEED LIMIT. PARKED THE CAR AT THE DEALERSHIP. EXPLAINED TO THE TECHNICIANS WHAT WAS WRONG, ONE OF THE TECHNICIANS TOOK MY VEHICLE FROM WHERE I PARKED AND BROUGHT IT INTO THE GARAGE. HE CONFIRMED MY CAR WAS JUDDERING, SHAKING AND STALLED. THEY NOTIFIED ME THE CAR WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE LOOKED AT POSSIBLY UNTIL 3/16. MY CAR SAT THERE FOR A FEW DAYS, LIKE IT DID BACK IN 2019 WHEN THIS FIRST OCCURRED. UPON FURTHER REVIEW OF THE DIAGNOSTICS TEST, THEY WERE UNABLE TO DUPLICATE THE STALLING, JUDDERING AND SHAKING. SO THEY DID NOT REPLACE THE CVT TRANSMISSION INSTEAD THEY REPLACED THE VALVE PIPE

I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA 2.5S MODEL. AFTER THE FIRST COUPLE YEARS I NOTICED THE HEADLIGHTS GETTING DIMER AND DIMER TO THE POINT WHERE IT WAS UNSAFE TO DRIVE AT NIGHT. I HAD THE OE BULBS REPLACED WITH LID LIGHTS AND IT DID NOTHING FOR THE PROJECTION OF THE HEADLAMPS STILL DIM. SO I THAN HAD HID BULBS PUT IN AND SAME THING NO PROJECTION OUT OF THE LENSES. I GOT ON A NISSAN FORUM AND IT TALKED ABOUT THE INSIDE OF THE LENS LOOSING ITS REFLECTING ABILITY. SO I WENT TO THE NISSAN DEALER IN RENTON WHERE I HAD PURCHASED MY CAR AND WAS TOLD TO CALL THE NISSANS 800 NUMBER. I DID CALL AND SPOKE TO A JENNIFER. TOLD HER EVERYTHING I JUST STATED ITS OBVIOUS IF YOU LOOK THRU THE LENS THAT YOU CAN SEE THE INTERNAL REFLECTION ABILITY IS GONE. SHE TOLD ME I HAD TO TAKE IT TO NISSAN AND PAY FOR THE DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIRS TO GET IT BACK TO OE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE NISSAN FORUM THIS IS A SEVERE OCCURRING ISSUE. SO YONKER NISSAN AND NISSAN OF NORTH AMERICA IT SEEMS SAFETY IS NOT AN ISSUE TO ME OR MY FAMILY SO NEITHER IS MY BUSINESS THAT GOES FOR BOTH OF YOU.. AND I DO HOPE YOU TRAIN YOUR NISSAN OF NORTH AMERICA STAFF ON THE MAGNUSSON ACT CAUSE AFTERMARKET GIVES A 10 YEAR WARRANTY ON THE LENS ASSEMBLIES TO YOUR 1 YEAR.SO I DON'T HAVE TO TAKE IT TO NISSAN.

Summary

WE BOUGHT OUR NEW 2014 ALTIMA IN DECEMBER 2013. ON FEBRUARY 4, 2020, WITH 151,000 MILES, MY WIFE WAS DRIVING A WINDING COUNTY ROAD AT APPROXIMATELY 50 MPH AND EXPERIENCED A PROBLEM WITH HER ALTIMA. SHE STATED THAT IT WAS LIKE THE CAR WAS ON ICE AND NEARLY UNCONTROLLABLE. I WENT TO HER AND DISCOVERED THAT THE LEFT REAR CONTROL ARM WAS SEVERED AT THE ATTACHMENT TO THE CHASSIS. I DROVE THE CAR ABOUT ONE MILE AT LESS THAN 20 MPH AND IT WAS TERRIBLE! I TOLD THE DEALER TO REPLACE BOTH CONTROLS ARMS AND I DEMANDED THE PARTS BE RETURNED TO ME. UPON INSPECTION OF THE PARTS, THE RIGHT CONTROL ARM HAS SEVERE CRACKING AND WOULD HAVE FAILED IN THE SAME MANNER WITHIN DAYS OR WEEKS. I SPOKE WITH NISSAN NORTH AMERICA. THEY CLAIMED TO BE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM ON 2013 MODELS ONLY. I REQUESTED THAT NISSAN EXTEND THEIR REPAIR CAMPAIGN TO ALL AFFECTED YEARS AND NOTIFY OWNERS OF THIS SAFETY CONCERN. THEY HAVE REFUSED. THEY HAVE ALSO REFUSED TO COVER THE EXPENSE OF OUR FAILURE, WHICH TOTALS NEARLY $1800 INCLUDING A RENTAL CAR. AT A MINIMUM, NISSAN SHOULD BE REQUIRING THEIR DEALERS TO INSPECT THE CONTROLS ARMS OF ANY AFFECTED ALTIMA THAT IS BEING SERVICED. THEY SHOULD BE COLLECTING DATA ON THE INSPECTIONS, AND THEY SHOULD BE REPLACING ANY CONTROL ARM THAT IS SHOWING SEVERE DEGRADATION BEFORE IT FAILS. OUR ALTIMA WAS IN FOR SERVICE LESS THAN 3 WEEKS PRIOR TO FAILURE AND NO RELATED CONCERNS WERE BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION. PER NHTSA'S OPEN INVESTIGATION #EA19002, THIS FAILURE IS PRIMARILY IN THE AREAS WHERE ROAD SALT IS USED. ROAD SALT MEANS THESE AREAS ARE PRONE TO SLIPPERY ROAD SURFACES. JUST IMAGINE THIS FAILURE HAPPENING ON A SLIPPERY ROAD! THE RESULTS COULD BE DISASTROUS FOR THOSE INVOLVED. NISSAN NEEDS TO DO THE RIGHT THING TO PROTECT THEIR CUSTOMERS, THE PUBLIC AND THEIR REPUTATION.

THE NEW BULBS (SILVANIA SILVERSTARS) WERE SUPPOSED TO BE BRIGHTER. THERE WERE NOT MUCH BRIGHTER. LATER WHEN I WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP THEY SUGGESTED NEW HEADLIGHT ASSEMBALLIES AS THE CHROME PAINTING ON THE INSIDES OF THE LENSES HAS FADED AND AS A RESULT IS NOT REFLECTING MUCH LIGHT ONTO THE ROAD. THE ESTIMATED COST OF THIS REPAIR WAS 800$. I HAVE NEVER OWNED A CAR WHERE THE HEADLIGHTS HAVE FAILED IN THIS MATTER AND AS A STUDENT IT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND DANGEROUS TO HAVE LOW BEAMS THAT ARE SO DIM THEY DO NOT EVEN APPEAR TO BE ON AT NIGHT.

ON TUESDAY NIGHT JANUARY 14, 2020 I DO AS I ALWAYS DO THIS NIGHT AND DRIVE MY SON TO HIS HOCKEY PRACTICE FOR 6 PM IN NORTH SMITHFIELD RHODE ISLAND. WE WERE ON THE HIGHWAY ROUTE 295 IN TRAVEL LANE PASSING AN 18 WHEELER TRUCK. WHEN WE WERE NEXT TO THIS TRUCK IT FELT LIKE A GUST OF WIND CAME OUT OF NO WHERE AND PUSHED MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA IN HIS LANE AND ALMOST HIT THIS TRUCK. I WENT TO CORRECT THE WHEEL TO MOVE AWAY FROM THIS AND THE CAR ALMOST WENT RIGHT OFF THE HIGHWAY IN A DITCH. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON AND WAS ABLE TO KEEP THE CAR STRAIGHTENED OUT. MY SON, WHO IS 11 WAS SCARED TO DEATH. I NOTICED THAT THAT A LIGHT ON DASHBOARD CAME ON THAT LOOKS LIKE A TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT OR SLIPPERY ROAD LIGHT. WHERE THIS HAPPENED, THE PRACTICE WE GO TO WAS NEXT EXIT AND RIGHT OFF THE HIGHWAY. WE DECIDED TO HEAD THERE SINCE THERE WAS NO SAFE SPOT TO PULL OVER IN THIS LOCATION AT NIGHT. I PUT THE HAZARD LIGHT ON AND MANAGED TO GET THEIR SLOWLY SOMEHOW SO I COULD LOOK INTO WHAT THIS PROBLEM WAS. WE GOT TO PRACTICE. MY SON WENT IN AND I LOOKED AROUND AT WHAT THIS LIGHT WAS THAT CAME ON DASHBOARD. I COULD NOT FIND IT IN MANUAL ANYWHERE AND WAS THINKING THAT IT MAY HAVE BEEN A COMPUTER ISSUE. FROM THERE I CHECKED THE OUTSIDE OF THE CAR AND UNDER THE BEST I COULD AND DID NOT NOTICE ANYTHING AT THIS TIME SO I LEFT IT ALONE. WHEN IT WAS TIME TO LEAVE MY PLAN WAS JUST TO TAKE IT SLOW AND DRIVE HOME. WE MADE IT ABOUT 200 FEET OUT OF PARKING LOT AND HEARD A NASTY NOISE AND PULLED RIGHT OVER ON ROUTE 146 IN NORTH SMITHFIELD R.I. I LOOKED UNDER CAR WHERE I HEARD THE NOISE AND COULD SEE SOMETHING BROKEN. I TOOK AN PICTURE - CALLED MY MECHANIC RIGHT AWAY TO FIND OUT WHAT IT WAS..IT WAS A CONTROL ARM AND WERE EXTREMELY LUCKY WE WERE NOT INVOLVED IN A SERIOUS ACCIDENT OR HURT IN ANYWAY, FOUND OUT THE OTHER CONTROL ARM WAS READY TO BREAK HTTPS://PHOTOS.APP.GOO.GL/IEGG5SVV4CSQNNVR6 I

Summary

WHILE DRIVING ON A STATE ROUTE I HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD AND IMMEDIATELY FELT THE STEERING WHEEL SHIFT FROM EVEN TO THE LEFT ABOUT 45 DEGREES WITH A THUMPING SOUND . ALSO THE STABILITY LIGHT CAME ON. I TRIED TO STEER THE CAR PROPERLY BUT ENCOUNTERED A PULLING TO THE LEFT. I PULLED OFF THE ROAD INTO A LOT AND DISCOVERED THE REAR LEFT WHEEL AND SIDE (DRIVER SIDE} WAS LOWER THAN THE RIGHT AND THE WHEEL WAS TILTED INWARD. FURTHER INSPECTION REVEALED THAT THE CONNECTION TO THE SUSPENSION WAS COMPROMISED. WE HAD THE CAR TOWED ON FLATBED TO MY LOCAL MECHANIC. HE IS LOCATED NEAR THE LOCAL NISSAN DEALERSHIP SO WE HOPE TO GET IT RESOLVED WITH HIS SELP. MY RESEARCH ON YOUR SITE INDICATED THAT SEVERAL (1000'S) OF 2013 VEHICLES EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM BUT NOT MANY 2014 MODELS. I BELIEVE THE PROBLEM IS NOT JUST FOR THE 2013 MODELS AND THE 2014'S AGE IS ABOUT AT THE SAME TIME WHEN THE 2013'S HAVE FAILED. (6 YEARS OLD). I AM HOPING THAT NISSAN FOLLOWS SUIT WITH THE 2014 MODELS LIKE CANADA DID LAST YEAR.

STARTING IN APRIL 2019 ON MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA SV. THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS ARE EXTREMELY DIM. THEY ARE EASILY OVERPOWERED BY THE TURN SIGNAL, AND HEADLIGHTS FROM OTHER VEHICLES CAST A "SHADOW" WHEN DRIVING BEHIND THIS VEHICLE. THIS PRESENTS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD ESPECIAL IN ANY WET WEATHER EVENT IT IS ALMOST LIKE HAVING NO LIGHTS ON AT ALL. IF THERE IS A MINIMUM LUMENS THAT NEED TO BE PROJECTED TO THE ROAD THIS DESIGN IS NOT DOING IT. THE BULBS WERE REPLACED WITH APPROPRIATE UNITS, NO CHANGE IN THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE LIGHTS. WHEN I CONTACTED NISSAN ABOUT THIS SAFETY DEFECT THEY PROVIDED NO SOLUTION. AND TOOK ZERO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE COMPANIES DESIGN FLAW.

ABOUT A YEAR AGO I NOTICED I COULD NOT SEE WELL AT NIGHT. I TOOK MY CAR IN TO HAVE THE HEADLIGHTS REPLACED. I THOUGHT IT WAS MY DRIVER SIDE LOW BEAM. THEY REPLACED IT. ABOUT A WEEK LATER IT STILL WAS NOT ANY BETTER. TOOK IT BACK IN AND THEY SAID IT WAS FINE. I REPLACED THE BULB 2 MORE TIMES AND STILL WAS AWFUL. THEN I DISCOVERED THAT THIS ISSUE WAS COMMON IN 2014 ALTIMAS. I WAS TOLD I COULD FIX THE ISSUE BY REPLACING SOME PARTS. REPLACED MY PASSENGER SIDE, BUT WAS TOLD THAT BECAUSE OF ALL THE ISSUES THAT THE DRIVER'S SIDE LOW BEAM HAD MELTED. I HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE ASSEMBLY. THIS WILL END UP COSTING $800, FOR HEADLIGHTS. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS PROBLEM. I WAS TOLD I WAS LUCKY THAT MY CAR DID NOT CATCH ON FIRE. NISSAN NEEDS TO FIX THIS PROBLEM AND PROVIDE THE REPAIRS. ACCIDENTS COULD HAPPEN DUE TO THIS DANGEROUS PROBLEM.

LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS HAVE DETERIORATED TO THE POINT THE CAR CANNOT E DRIVEN AT NIGHT. THE BULBS WERE REPLACED TWICE WITH NO IMPROVEMENT. ADJUSTING THE BULBS ALSO DID NOT IMPROVE THE ILLUMINATION. THE CAR IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE AT NIGHT AND THE CAR HAS BEEN PARKED FOR THE LAST FOUR WEEKS. IT'S OBVIOUSLY AN ENGINEERING FLAW THE CONSUMER SHOULD NOT PAY FOR. YOU CAN'T VALUE ENGINEER SAFETY. I CONTACTED NISSAN TO SEE IF THEY WILL DO THE RIGHT THING AND REPLACE THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLIES. IN CLOSING THE TURN SIGNAL BULBS PRODUCE MORE LIGHT THAN THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS.

I PURCHASED A USED 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA WITH 58,000 MILES. IT DROVE GREAT DURING TEST DRIVING AND ON MY WAY HOME WHICH IS 1 HOUR AWAY FROM WHERE I LIVE. BY DAY 2 THE CAR BEGAN JERKING AROUND 60 MI PER HR. AND UNDER. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT MY LOCAL NISSAN DEALERSHIP. BY DAY 4 ON THE WAY TO THE DEALERSHIP THE RPM WOULD JUMP UP TO 4 AND THE CAR MADE A WINDING NOISE. IT WOULD ADVANCE FORWARD QUICKLY AND THEN STALL. ALL OF THIS WHILE DRIVING ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY. I CAME TO A PLACE WHERE I COULD PULL OVER WAITED A FEW MINUTES AND THEN TRIED TO PULL OFF THE CAR WOULD NOT GO ANYWHERE. I FINALLY HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP. NISSAN HAS YET TO KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS, SAYING IT HAS AN "UNSPECIFIED CODE". IT'S BEEN 3 DAYS. I KNOW THERE HAD BEEN A RECALL ON THE CVT TRANSMISSION HOWEVER I DON'T SEE MY VEHICLE VIN ON THE LIST.

ABOUT THREE YEARS INTO OWNING MY BRAND NEW 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA I BEGAN TO REALIZE HOW INCREDIBLY DARK THE ROADS WERE BECOMING WHEN I WOULD DRIVE AT NIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. I THOUGHT AT FIRST I NEEDED NEW PRESCRIPTION GLASSES BUT WHEN I BEGIN NEEDING TO USE MY BRIGHTS FOR REGULAR NIGHTTIME DRIVING IN THE CITY I KNEW THERE WAS A PROBLEM. THEN, BOTH MY BROTHER AND FATHER ON SEPARATE OCCASIONS POINTED OUT HOW DANGEROUSLY DIM MY HEADLIGHTS WERE. AFTER THAT, I KNEW IT WAS NOT JUST MY EYES SEEING DARKLY. I BEGIN TO DO RESEARCH ON THIS ISSUE AND FOUND OUT THE HEADLIGHT BARREL UNIT CORRODES AFTER JUST A FEW YEARS OF OWNERSHIP IN THE NISSAN 2013 TO 2015 MODELS. I HAVE TRIED CHANGING THE HEADLIGHTS AND FOUND THIS TO BE USELESS, PROVING THE POINT OF OTHER OWNERS. IT IS INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING THAT IT IS INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING THAT SUCH INTEGRAL SAFETY/VISION FACETS OF MY CAR ARE USELESS. I FEEL COMPLETELY UNCOMFORTABLE DRIVING AT NIGHT AND I HAVE NORMALLY VERY GREAT VISION. IF MY CAR CAN'T SHINE LIGHTS IN FRONT OF ME, THAT IS A HUGE CONCERN, AND THIS ISSUE WITHIN THE ALTIMA MODELS CAN GET SOMEONE KILLED.

THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS ARE VERY DIM, PROJECTING ONLY 2-3 FEET IN FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. REPLACING THE BULBS DOES NOT HELP. THE REFLECTIVE COATING ON THE PROJECTION LENS HAS WORN OFF CAUSING THE LIGHT BEAM TO NOT PROJECT WELL. THIS CREATES VERY POOR VISIBILITY AND IS A SAFETY HAZARD.

Summary

VEHICLE HAS TERRIBLE VISIBILITY AT NIGHT WHEN IN MOTION. THE VEHICLE HAS AN INFERIOR HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY, CAUSING YOU TO DRIVE NEARLY BLIND AND TO ALMOST RELY ON THE NEXT VEHICLE IN FRONT OF YOU TO PROVIDE YOU A PATH. I INITIALLY THOUGHT IT WAS THE HEADLIGHT BULBS THAT WERE THE ISSUE. I HAD CHANGED THEM OUT AND IT ONLY IMPROVED VISIBILITY EVER SO SLIGHTLY. I WAS TOLD BY THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP THAT IT IS DUE TO THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY FREQUENTLY GOING BAD. THEY TOLD ME THAT IT IS FAIRLY COMMON FOR THE REFLECTIVE PART OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY TO GO CLOUDY AND GO DIM. THEY TOLD ME THAT SINCE THIS WAS CONSIDERED STANDARD WEAR AND TEAR, THEREFORE NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY. THEY RECOMMENDED ME TO REPLACE THE WHOLE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY FOR OVER A GRAND. I WAS EVEN RECOMMENDED TO BUY THEM AFTER MARKET TO SAVE, HOWEVER, THIS SHOULD NOT EVEN BE AN ISSUE! THIS ISSUE PRESENTED ITSELF AFTER OWNING IT FROM NEW FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS. THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT NISSAN IS REFUSING TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE. I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS TYPE OF ISSUE WITH ANY OTHER VEHICLE THAT I HAVE OWNED. THIS IS A HAZARD AND CAN CERTAINLY CAUSE SAFETY HAZARDS FOR THE DRIVER.

REGULAR (LOW BEAM) HEADLIGHTS ARE EXTREMELY DIM, DESPITE ME CLEANING THE EXTERIOR OF THE HEADLIGHTS AND REPLACING THE BULBS. YESTERDAY IN NORTH RALEIGH, NC, I RAN OVER A LOW CONCRETE DIVIDER SEPARATING THE MAIN TRAFFIC LANES AND A TURN LANE, BECAUSE I COULDN'T SEE IT AT ALL. THE DIMNESS SEEMS TO BE PARTICULARLY BAD FOR PERIPHERAL LIGHTING (WHICH MAKES SENSE GIVING MY EXAMPLE ABOVE, CHANGING FROM ONE LANE TO ANOTHER, AND NOT SEEING THE CONCRETE DIVIDER AT ALL). FROM RESEARCHING THIS ISSUE ONLINE, THIS PROBLEM SEEMS VERY COMMON AMONG 2013-2015 ALTIMA OWNERS - APPARENTLY THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY'S PROJECTION SYSTEM DEGRADES OR WEARS OUT.

AT A STOPLIGHT, IT STALLED AGAIN IN THE INTERSECTION. RESEARCH ONLINE SHOWS MULTIPLE COMPLAINTS ON THIS VEHICLE SIMILAR TO MY COMPLAINT. THIS VEHICLE IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE AND I DON'T THINK I WILL DRIVE IT AGAIN.

I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA. ONE MORNING AFTER HAVING DROVE ABOUT 15 MILES ON THE CITY STREET, TURNING MY CAR OFF AND THEN ON AGAIN AFTER ABOUT 10 MINUTES, MY CAR STARTED SHUTTING OFF WHEN PUT IN DRIVE. I HAD TO GET IT TOWED. MY MECHANIC CALLED NISSAN AND GAVE THEM THE FAILURE CODE. HE WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS THE TORQUE CONVERTER. IT WAS LOCKED AND SO THE TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. I'VE BEEN READING UP ON THIS AND OTHER COMPLAINTS. NISSAN ISSUED A RECALL ON THE CVT REPROGRAMMING, BUT I THINK THEY KNOW THAT THERE IS MORE WRONG WITH THE TRANSMISSIONS THEY INSTALLED THESE CARS THAN THAT. REPROGRAMMING THE CVT IS SIMPLE FOR THEM, IT'S JUST A SOFTWARE UPGRADE. NOW I'M FINDING OUT THAT THE TORQUE CONVERTER IS FAILING (LOCKING UP) ON THOUSANDS OF CARS. I FEEL NISSAN SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THESE REPAIRS.

Summary

LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS BECAME EXTREMELY DIM OVER TIME. MY ALTIMA CURRENTLY REGISTERS 135,000 MILES. I DID NOT NOTICE THE PROBLEM BECAUSE I DRIVE THE VEHICLE DAILY. HOWEVER MY WIFE, WHO DOES NOT DRIVE IT REGULARLY, HAS MENTIONED THE DIMNESS TO ME ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS. INITIALLY I BELIEVED THE PROBLEM RESTED WITH THE BULBS; HOWEVER, REPLACING THOSE DID NOT IMPROVE LIGHT BRIGHTNESS. AFTER AN ONLINE SEARCH, IT APPEARS THAT THE PROBLEM MAY BE DUE TO HEAT INDUCED CLOUDING OF THE PROJECTOR LENS. NEITHER HEADLAMP ASSEMBLY HAS BEEN COMPROMISED. I BELIEVE THAT SUCH EQUIPMENT IS DURABLE IN NATURE AND THAT, UNLESS DAMAGED, SHOULD LAST THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE. FINALLY, I'VE NOTICED THAT TH PROBLEM IS SO SEVERE THAT LOW BEAM LIGHT FROM VEHICLES BEHIND ME CAST MORE LIGHT THAN MY OWN LOW BEAMS. INDEED I CAN EASILY SEE THE SHADOW OF MY VEHICLE WHICH IS CASTED FROM THE LOW BEAMS OF THE VEHICLES BEHIND ME. THIS IS A SEVERE SAFETY PROBLEM FOR ME, OTHER DRIVERS, PEDESTRIANS, ETC. IT DESERVES THE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION OF THE NHTSA. THIS PROBLEM IS AN ISSUE AT NIGHT TIME, PARTICULARLY WHEN IN MOTION SINCE REACTION TIME MAY BE INSUFFICIENT TO AVERT AND ACCIDENT OR INCIDENT

THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY NEEDS RECALLED ASAP! I NOTICED THAT THE HEADLIGHTS APPEARED MUCH DIMMER SO I REPLACED THE BULBS TWICE BUT IT ISN'T A PROBLEM WITH THE BULB. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU GET BETTER BULBS, THE HEADLIGHT PROJECTOR WILL NOT PROJECT LIGHT FORCING YOU TO DRIVE WITH THE HIGH BEAMS ON. IT IS DANGEROUS! MY SON WAS PULLED OVER DRIVING MY CAR ONE NIGHT BECAUSE THE OFFICER SAID IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE HE HAD HEADLIGHTS AND ADVISED HIM TO DRIVE WITH THE BRIGHT HIGH BEAM LIGHTS ON. I'VE RESEARCHED THIS ISSUE AND IT SEEMS THAT LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT THIS ISSUE BUT NISSAN IS DOING NOTHING TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM! I'VE ALWAYS BOUGHT NISSANS BUT ALL THE ISSUES I HAVE HAD WITH THIS CAR, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ONE! THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROBLEM THAT I HAVE DEALT WITH NOW FOR TWO YEARS AND SINCE NISSAN WON'T ISSUE A RECALL, I'M FORCED TO PURCHASE NEW HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY'S FOR THE CAR.

HASN'T MADE A DIFFERENCE WHETHER ON FLAT GROUND OR A HILL. THE VEHICLE WILL GO WEEKS WITHOUT AN ISSUE, AND THEN RANDOMLY START/STOP AGAIN. SOME WEEKS IT HAPPENS MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY. SOME TIMES IT STARTS TO ACT THIS WAY UPON START UP AND OTHER TIMES I COULD BE TRAVELING FOR A LITTLE WHILE, STOP AT A LIGHT, AND TRY TO TAKE OFF AND NOTHING WILL HAPPEN. THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL TIMES I HAVE TRIED TO ACCELERATE ON A RIGHT HAND TURN AFTER STOPPING AND THE VEHICLE WON'T ACCELERATE. THIS HAS LEAD TO US ALMOST GETTING PLOWED INTO.

LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS DO NOT PROJECT LIGHT ONTO THE ROAD MAKING A HUGE SAFETY HAZARD FOR DRIVERS. THE MIRROR REFLECTORS INSIDE THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY ARE BURNED AND CORRODED MAKING THE LOW BEAM LIGHT INEFFECTIVE. FROM THE DRIVER SEAT YOU CANNOT SEE ANY LIGHT ON THE ROADWAY, AND HAVE TO USE THE HIGH BEAM LIGHTS JUST TO SEE WHAT IS IN FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. IT IS REALLY EVIDENT ON ROADWAYS WITH NO STREET LIGHTS AS IT FEELS LIKE DRIVING WITH THE LIGHTS OFF ON THE VEHICLE. I HAVE TRIED NEW BULBS, HIGHER INTENSITY BULBS, AND LEDS WITH NO SUCCESS. MY ONLY OPTION IS TO REPLACE THE WHOLE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY AT A SUBSTANTIAL EXPENSE ON A VEHICLE WHICH IS ONLY 5 YEARS OLD.

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

IT WILL NOT STAY CLIPPED INTO PLACE AND IT SEEMS THE CLIP OR SOME PIECE INSIDE OF THE VISOR AFFECTS THE ABILITY FOR THE VISOR TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. THE VISOR BEING BROKEN IS A SAFETY CONCERN BECAUSE IT PROHIBITS MY VIEW AS THE DRIVER AND THE VISOR SWINGS INTO MY VIEW WHEN TURNING. WHEN THE VISOR IS LOCKED IN PLACE, I HAVE TO CROUCH DOWN TO SEE UNDER IT. IT SEEMS TO BE A HAZARD AND CONCERN FOR MANY OTHER NISSAN OWNERS.

WHILE ON A 70MPH HIGHWAY, MY VEHICLE STARTED SPUTTERING AND WOULD NOT RETAIN SPEED. I KEPT MY FOOT ON THE GAS, AND IT WAS LOSING SPEED AT AN ALARMING RATE. I WAS NOW GOING 35 ON A 70MPH ROAD. I PULLED TO THE BERM, WITH MY HAZARDS ON, AND TRIED TO REGAIN NORMAL HIGHWAY SPEEDS. FOUND A SAFE SPOT TO PARK, HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED (USAA INSURANCE) TO A MECHANIC. MECHANIC COULD NOT REGISTER CODE, HE TOWED IT TO ANOTHER MECHANIC. CVT TRANSMISSION WENT. KNOWN PROBLEM WITH ALTIMA'S. NISSAN KNOWS OF THE PROBLEM. HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO MY HOME STATE ($500, NO RECEIPT, AS IT IS NOT HERE YET). NEED TO TAKE IT TO AN AUTHORIZED NISSAN DEALER AND PAY FOR IT OUT OF POCKET(37-3900, NO RECEIPT, CAN NOT AFFORD IT). HAD TO RENT A CAR TO GET HOME ($300, MY SISTER RENTED IT). I HAD CHILDREN IN THE CAR, READY FOR VACATION, AND THEY WERE SCARED WE WERE GOING TO GET INTO AN ACCIDENT BECAUSE OF THE CVT TRANSMISSION ISSUES. SO FAR, I AM OUT OF POCKET 571.62, NOT TO MENTION THE ALMOST 4 THOUSAND DOLLARS I AM FACING.

Summary

MY HEADLIGHTS ON MY '14 NISSAN ALTIMA ARE VERY DIM, TO THE POINT THAT I AVOID DRIVING AT NIGHT OR IN THE RAIN BECAUSE I CANNOT SEE MORE THAN 5-10 FEET IN FRONT OF ME. I LIVE OFF OF A DARK ROAD WITH LIMITED LIGHTING, AND IS ALWAYS FEARFUL OF HITTING SOMETHING/ SOMEONE OR RUNNING OFF THE ROAD SO I'M FREQUENTLY DRIVING WITH MY BRIGHT LIGHTS ON JUST TO MAKE IT HOME SAFELY. THIS PROGRESSING DIMMING WORRIES ME BECAUSE I DRIVE OFTEN FOR WORK IN OCCASIONAL HIGH CONSTRUCTION AND NEWLY DEVELOPED AREAS WHERE EQUIPMENT MAY BE LEFT OUT IN POORLY LIT AREAS, LIKE CONES OR MACHINERY, THAT ARE DIFFICULT FOR ME TO SPOT FROM A SAFE DISTANCE. IF REFLECTORS ARE NOT PRESENT IN THE ROAD OR HIGHWAY, I HAVE DIFFICULTIES STAYING WITHIN MY LANE BECAUSE OF THE DIMMING HEADLIGHTS, RESULTING IN PLACING OTHER DRIVERS AND MYSELF IN DANGER. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR TO A NISSAN DEALERSHIP, WHICH I WAS EXPLAINED THAT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LIGHT BULB ITSELF, BUT A DEFECTIVE OR WORN PROJECTOR LENS WHICH WILL COST APPROXIMATELY $1000 TO REPLACE.

Summary

ACCELERATION ISSUES. SPORADICALLY THE CAR WILL DO NOTHING WHEN WE STEP ON THE ACCELERATOR. IT IS DANGEROUS BECAUSE IT HAPPENS RANDOMLY AND WE ESSENTIALLY HAVE ZERO POWER TO MOVE. AFTER HOLDING THE ACCELERATOR DOWN FOR A NUMBER OF SECONDS THE CAR WILL THEN ABNORMALLY START TO ACCELERATE AND REV UP ON RPMS BUT WILL NOT ACCELERATE AS NORMAL. IT'S AS IF THE TRANSMISSION IS THOROUGHLY CONFUSED. I CONTINUED TO DRIVE THE CAR AND IT COULD NEVER GET OVER 60 MPH REGARDLESS OF HOW FAR I STEPPED ON THE ACCELERATOR. I HAVE VIDEO OF THE BEHAVIOR. THE ISSUE CONTINUES AT RANDOM TIMES AND WE FEEL INCREDIBLY UNSAFE WHEN WE ARE IN TRAFFIC BECAUSE THE CAR WILL IDLE FORWARD BUT DO NOTHING EVEN WHEN ACCERATOR IS DEPRESSED. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER WITH VIDEO OF THE VEHICLES CRAZY BEHAVIOR; THEY HAVE TOLD ME THAT THE COMPUTER SAYS NOTHING IS WRONG WITH IT. THEY TELL ME TO CONTINUE TO DRIVE UNTIL IT GETS WORSE. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE WE ARE AT RISK OF AN ACCIDENT WHEN YOU TRY TO ACCELERATE BUT THE CAR DOES NOTHING BUT IDLE FORWARD; IT CATCHES US OFF GUARD AND WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT IDLING INTO ON COMING TRAFFIC WHEN MAKING TURNS. I HAVE CONTACTED NISSAN WHO SAID THEY HAVE NO INTEREST IN WATCHING THE VIDEO AND THAT THE COMPUTER INDICATES NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CAR. WE ARE INCREDIBLY WORRIED ABOUT DRIVING THIS CAR AND FEEL NISSAN IS COVERING UP AN ISSUE. IT WAS ADMITTED TO ME BY THE DEALER THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH MANY OF THEIR CVTS; IT IS EVIDENT IN CONSUMER INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET AS WELL. I GET THE IMPRESSION NISSAN HAS NO INTEREST IN THE SAFETY OF THE COMMUNITY; STARTING WITH THE FACT THAT NEITHER THE DEALER NOR CONSUMER AFFAIRS HAS INTEREST IN WATCHING THE VIDEOS SHOWING THE VERY SERIOUS ISSUE. I CAN PROVIDE VIDEO TO NHTSA UPON REQUEST. THANK YOU.

I NOTICED LAST YEAR THAT MY LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS WERE REALLY DIM, LITERALLY THE FOG LIGHTS ILLUMINATE FARTHER THAN THE LOW BEAM LIGHTS. I BOUGHT NEW BULBS THAT WERE LED AND MY HIGH BEAM LIGHTS ARE REALLY BRIGHT, HOWEVER THE LOW BEAM LIGHTS ARE STILL JUST AS THEY WERE BEFORE. I DID SOME RESEARCH ONLINE AND FOUND THAT MANY NISSAN ALTIMA 2013-2015 OWNERS WERE EXPERIENCING THE SAME ISSUE. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE WHEN DRIVING AT NIGHT, IF YOU CAN'T SEE WITHOUT YOUR BRIGHT LIGHTS ON!!! WHY HAS THERE NOT BEEN A RECALL DONE ON THE HEADLIGHTS YET???? SURELY SOMETHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS BEFORE THERE IS A TRAGIC WRECK BECAUSE A DRIVER CAN'T SEE TWO FEET IN FRONT OF THE CAR WHILE GOING DOWN THE ROAD.

THE CAR WAS UNABLE TO GO INTO TOP GEAR, STRUGGLED TO GO UP HILLS, BEGAN SHIFTING GEARS ERRATICALLY, AND COULD NOT ACELERATE PAST 40 MILES PER HOUR. THE CAR FELT VERY HURKY JERKY AND THE RIDE WAS THE OPPPOSITE OF SMOOTH. THIS PERSISTED FOR OVER SEVERAL MILES. I GOT THE CAR TO THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP THE NEXT DAY. ACCORDING TO A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT I AM INVOLVED IN THAT NISSAN LOST, ON JUNE 9, 2019, NISSAN WAS SUPPOSED TO FIX THIS ISSUE, BUT THEY ARE REFUSING TO MAKE AMENDS FOR THE ISSUE WITH THE TRANSMISSION ON MY CAR. THE CASE IS CHRISTOPHER GANN ET AL. V. NISSAN NORTH AMERICA, CASE NUMBER 3:18-CV-00966, IN THE U.S. DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE. MY CAR IS AT THE ROCKLAND NISSAN DEALERSHIP RIGHT NOW AT 845 -358-6700 AND THEY WANT US TO PAY FOR THEM TO DIAGNOSE THE CAR BECAUSE THE CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY EVEN THOUGH ACCORDING TO THE LEGAL DEAL THEY MADE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO EXTEND OUR WARRANTY 24 MONTHS OR 24,000 MILES AND PAY FOR ANY SERVICING OF OUR TRANSMISSION.

I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA THAT HAS 72,000 MILES ON IT. THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS ARE SO DIM I CAN BARELY SEE A FOOT IN FRONT OF ME. THIS IS A REAL SAFETY CONCERN. I HAVE REPLACED THE BULBS WITH LED AND IT DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. TRAVELING ON ANY ROAD I HAVE TO PUT MY BRIGHT LIGHTS ON JUST TO SEE. IT'S NOT SAFE TO DRIVE IT AT NIGHT AND I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PUT MY SAFETY OR THE SAFETY OF OTHERS IN JEOPARDY JUST BECAUSE NISSAN HAS A FLAWED SYSTEM THEY REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE. IT'S SURELY SOMEONE'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE NISSAN PUT OUT A RECALL ON THESE HEADLIGHTS SO WE AS THE CAR OWNERS DON'T HAVE TO PAY $1,000 FOR SOMETHING THAT IS NISSAN'S FAULT. AS OF DECEMBER 2018, THIS PARTICULAR PROBLEM RANKS 10TH IN THE CARCOMPLAINTS.COM RECENT PROBLEM TREND LIST. THIS IS A MANUFACTURING ISSUE. NISSAN NEEDS TO ADDRESS THE ISSUES BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT.

Summary

THE HEADLIGHTS OF THE NISSAN ALTIMA 2014 ARE TOO DIM FOR SAFE DRIVING AFTER DARK. THE LOW BEAMS, ON REGULAR SETTING, BARELY SHINE IN FRONT OF THE VEHICLE AND PROVIDE LITTLE TO NO LIGHTING FOR THE SURROUNDING ROADWAYS. THE PERIPHERAL VIEW OF THE ROAD AND/OR MEDIANS, WHILE DRIVING, IS OBSOLETE. WHILE DRIVING THE HIGHWAY AT NIGHT, I AM FORCED TO TURN ON THE HIGH BEAMS IN ORDER TO SEE A FEW FEET IN FRONT OF ME. ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION, I HAVE COMPLETELY MISSED A CAR DRIVING ON EITHER SIDE OF ME, BECAUSE OF THIS ISSUE. EVEN AFTER REPLACING BOTH BULBS, THE LACK OF LIGHTING IS EVIDENT. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING THIS VEHICLE AT NIGHT, WHEN I DO NOT HAVE THE HELP OF THE CITY STREET LIGHTS. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS PROBLEM WITH NISSAN ALTIMAS AND IT SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE FOR 2013-2015 ALTIMAS. AFTER SPEAKING WITH A MECHANIC, IT WAS CONFIRMED THAT THIS ISSUE IS RAMPANT AMONG ALTIMA OWNERS. REPLACING THE BULBS FOR THE HEADLIGHTS DOES LITTLE TO SOLVE THE ISSUE, AND THE ONLY OTHER OPTION IS $1,000 WORTH OF WORK TO IMPROVE THE PROBLEM. THIS IS AN ONGOING ISSUE THAT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED FOR ALL INDIVIDUALS WHO OWN THIS CAR. INADEQUATE LIGHTING, WHICH IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT IN THIS CASE, IS A MAJOR SAFETY HAZARD FOR THE DRIVERS OF THESE VEHICLES NOT TO MENTION EVERYONE WHO SHARES THE ROAD WITH THEM.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING ON A RESIDENTIAL STREET AT ROUGHLY 30MPH, MY VEHICLE SUDDENLY PULLED DRAMATICALLY TO THE RIGHT, PRETTY MUCH AGAINST MY CONTROL OF THE STEERING WHEEL. I THOUGHT THE CAR HAD BEEN KNOCKED OUT OF ALIGNMENT THOUGH I HADN'T HIT A BUMP. I PROCEEDED HOME, APPROXIMATELY AT 10-15 MPH. I MADE AN APPT TO MY LOCAL GARAGE AND LIMPED THERE. WHEN MY CAR WAS HOISTED ONTO THE LIFT I WAS TOLD TO COME INTO THE SERVICE AREASO THAT I COULD BE SHOWN WHAT HAPPENED. THEY SHOWED THE RIGHT CONTROL ARM AND SAID THAT IT SPLIT IN 2 AND THAT I WAS EXTREMELY LUCKY THAT I WASN'T INVOLVED INA SERIOUS ROAD MISHAP. AFTER VIEWING THE PART I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT NISSAN HAS A VARIOUS SAFETY ISSUE WITH THE CONTROL ARMS ON AT LEAST 2014 ALTIMAS, WHICH I PURCHASED BRAND NEW. I DO A LOT OF HIGHWAY DRIVING AND BASED UPON HOW THE VEHICLE SWERVED SO DRASTICALLY TO THE RIGHT, I AM CERTAIN THIS VEHICLE WOULD HAVE FLIPPED OVER WITH ANY SORT OF SPEED. AT 30 MPH, I WAS LUCKY TO AVOID CONTACT WITH PEDESTRIANS OR OBJECTS. I CONTACTED NISSAN TO FILE A COMPLAINT. THE REP WAS MORE INTERESTED IN INFORMING ME THAT MY VEHICLE WAS OUT OF WARRANTY AND NOT TAKEN TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER. I WAS TOLD THAT THERE NO OTHER COMPLAINTS FILED ABOUT THIS PART BREAKING APART. I HAVE KEPT WHAT REMAINS OF THE PART. THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SAFETY MATTER. I AM CERTAINLY AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

WE PURCHASED THIS CAR NEW IN LATE 2013. OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE HAD DIMNESS IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE HEADLIGHT. HAVE CHANGED BULBS FOR BOTH SIDES WITH NO SUCCESS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE.

DESPITE REPLACING THE BULBS AND EVEN TRYING HID LIGHT BULBS FOR THE CAR, IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO DRIVE AT NIGHT DUE TO THE HEADLIGHTS BEING SO DIM. YOU LITERALLY HAVE TO DRIVE WITH YOUR BRIGHT LIGHTS (HIGH BEAMS) ON IN ORDER TO SEE MORE THAN A FEW FEET AHEAD OF YOU AS YOU DRIVE. IT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND POSES RISK NOT ONLY TO THE DRIVER BECAUSE THEY CAN'T SEE WITHOUT DRIVING WITH HIGH BEAMS ON, BUT ALSO TO ONCOMING TRAFFIC BEING SUBJECTED TO BLINDING LIGHTS IN THEIR EYES.

THE AIR BAG LIGHT CAME BACK ON TWO DAYS LATER, AND THE SAME CODE CAME ON AGAIN. THEY RECOMMENDED A REPLACEMENT OF THE SIDE AIR BAG MODULE UNDER THE DRIVER SEAT TO REPAIR THE CONCERN. THEY WANT TO CHARGE ME $1600 FOR PARTS AND LABOR, AND WHAT'S WORSE, THE SOP PART IS ON BACK ORDER WITH NO ETA. SO I ASKED THE DEALER WHAT I AM SUPPOSED TO DO, AND IF THE CAR IS SAFE TO DRIVE? HE SUGGESTED THAT I SHOULDN'T DRIVE THE CAR, BUT THE PART IS NOT READILY AVAILABLE ANY WHERE IN THE UNITED STATES? WHAT KIND OF GARBAGE IS THAT? THEY OFFERED ME NO SOLUTION TO MY PROBLEM, AND I DON'T HAVE ANOTHER CAR TO DRIVE, AND THEY CAN'T EVEN TELL ME WHEN THE PART WILL BECOME AVAILABLE???? DOES THIS MEAN THAT THIS PROBLEM IS A PROBLEM ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY, BECAUSE WHY DON'T THEY HAVE THE PART AVAILABLE? THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE!!!!

Summary

THE HEADLIGHT LOW BEAMS WERE VERY DIM. I REPLACE THE ENTIRE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. ABOUT 1/3 OF THE REFLECTIVE SURFACE INSIDE THE PROJECTOR WAS BURN OFF AND PARTS WERE CRACKED FROM THE HEAT OF THE HEAD LAMP. THE HEADLIGHTS WERE SO DIM AT TIMES IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE THE ROAD. THIS IS A VERY UNSAFE CONDITION AND SHOULD NOT HAPPEN IN A FIVE YEAR OLD CAR. THE DEALER WANTED ABOUT $1000.00 TO REPAIR AS BOTH THE RIGHT AND LEFT HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLIES NEED TO BE REPLACED. I WAS ABLE TO PURCHASE THE GENUINE NISSAN PARTS FOR ABOUT HALF THAT PRICE AND I DID IT MYSELF.

Summary

DON'T HAVE TO REALLY SAY MUCH BECAUSE IT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL OVER THE INTERNET BUT THAT TRANSMISSION IS A PIECE OF JUNK!! IT WAS SLIPPING REPEATEDLY FROM AROUND 50,000-104,000 WHEN I GOT RID OF IT. IT WOULD ALSO STALL OUT (YES ON A CVT) FROM TIME TO TIME IN STOP AND GO TRAFFIC. IT GOT TO A POINT THAT I WAS SCARED I WAS GOING TO BE STUCK WITH A CAR WITH NO RESALE VALVE (BECAUSE OF THE TRANSMISSION) AND OWE A $14,000 PAYOFF BALANCE WITH THE BANK. SO I TRADED IT IN AND GOT A F-150.I BELIEVE ALL JATCO TRANSMISSIONS SHOULD GO UNDER AN INVESTIGATION BECAUSE THIS IS NOT SAFE FOR AMERICAN ROADS.

THE HALOGEN PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS ARE DANGEROUSLY DIM AS TIME GOES ON AND NEW BULBS DO NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. OTHER ALTIMA OWNERS REPORT THIS SAME ISSUE AND I SUSPECT THAT THE BOWL WITH REFLECTIVE COATING ON THE PROJECTORS IS BAD. THE HEADLIGHTS ARE VERY DIM AND CAN ONLY ILLUMINATE LESS THAN 100 FEET. THE HIGH BEAMS DO NOT HAVE THIS ISSUE AS THEY ARE ONLY HALOGEN BULBS AND NOT PROJECTORS. ONE MUST DRIVE WITH THE HIGH BEAMS ON TO SAFELY SEE ON THE HIGHWAY AND ON DARK STREETS AND THIS IS NOT SAFE FOR SURROUNDING DRIVERS EITHER.

"TAKATA RECALL" I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE IN OCTOBER 2018. SINCE THE PURCHASE, MY LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS HAVE MADE ME RUN COMPLETELY OFF OF THE ROAD ONCE AND ALMOST GOT HIT BY ANOTHER VEHICLE BECAUSE OF THE SEVERELY DIM; ALMOST NON-EXISTENT LOW BEAMS. THEREFORE I HAVE BEEN FORCED TO DRIVE AT NIGHT USING ONLY MY HIGH BEAMS BECAUSE AS A SINGLE MOTHER OF 4, I CANNOT AFFORD TO REPLACE OR REPAIR ENTIRE ASSEMBLE. I HAVE REPLACED THE BULBS A COUPLE TIMES AND WAS TOLD BY A MECHANIC AT LOCAL PARTS STORE THAT THE "PROJECTOR" HAS OBVIOUSLY GONE OUT AND THAT ALL ALTIMA WITH THAT TYPE OF LIGHTS EXPERIENCE ISSUE.

IT ALL STARTS AT 70,000 MILES BUT THERE IS NO RECALLS FOR THAT BECAUSE YOU ONLY HAVE YOUR WARRANTY IS UP TO 60,000 MILES WHICH IS A GOOD THING BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT THE TRANSMISSIONS GOING TO GO OUT AFTER 60,000 MILES, ANYWAY I BARELY GOT MY CAR BACK TO MY HOME AND I HAVE A MECHANIC LOOK AT IT AND IT'S GOING TO COST ME ALMOST $4500 TO GET MY TRANSMISSION FIXED, AND I STILL OWE 16,000 ON IT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOUR NISSAN ULTIMA'S BUT LOOKING UP ONLINE MINE IS NOT THE FIRST ONE THAT THIS IS HAPPENED TO SO THEREFORE SINCE I CAN'T DRIVE A CAR BECAUSE I CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY ALL THAT MONEY, AND THEN I ALSO AM OUT OF WORK BECAUSE I NEED A CAR TO DRIVE BACK-AND-FORTH, I AM GOING TO FIND AN ATTORNEY THAT WILL DO A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST YOU GUYS FOR THE VEHICLES DOING THIS! WHAT IS HAPPENING IS NOT OK, AND SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN BUT WITH EVERYTHING I LOOKED UP ONLINE THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF NISSAN ALTIMA'S 2014'S AROUND 70,000 MILES THAT THE TRANSMISSION IS GOING OUT THIS IS A PROBLEM AND IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED!

Summary

MY CAR STARTED "SPUTTERING" AND SHUTTING OFF WHEN IN MOTION OR COMING TO A STOP. THE CAR THEN STARTED TO REV THE ENGINE BETWEEN 2-3RPM WHEN I WAS DRIVING AT A CONSTANT SPEED. WHEN I WAS DRIVING ON A MAJOR HIGHWAY, THE CAR REVVED PAST 4RPM AND COMPLETELY SHUT OFF WITHOUT WARNING. I WAS LUCKILY ABLE TO STOP THE CAR, BUT NO ONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO ENDURE THAT DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC EVENT. I TOOK MY CAR TO THE NISSAN DEALER AND THEY SAID THAT MY TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. IT IS APPARENT THAT NISSAN HAD KNOWINGLY SOLD CARS WITH FAULTY TRANSMISSIONS THAT WOULD FAIL FAR BEFORE AN ACCEPTABLE TIME WITH MANY CONSUMERS FACING THE HIGH COST OF REPAIRING THE TRANSMISSION. AS I WAS HOPING THIS WAS A ONE-OFF SITUATION AND THAT NO ONE ELSE EXPERIENCED THIS, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS A FREQUENT COMPLAINT FOR THE NISSAN ALTIMA 2014. NISSAN SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT AND EXTEND THEIR POWER TRAIN WARRANTY TO 120,000 MILES OR 10 YEARS AS THEY HAVE FOR THEIR CAR MODELS FROM 2003-2010.

Summary

I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA SV, AND THE LOW-BEAM HEADLIGHTS ARE DANGEROUSLY DIM. I ALSO DID SOME ONLINE SEARCHES AND FIND THAT OTHER ALTIMA OWNERS ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM. THE DIM LOW BEAM IS OBVIOUSLY A SAFETY ISSUE! THE CLOUDY PROJECTOR LENS IS THE REASON! BECAUSE, FIRSTLY I REPLACED THE BULBS, BUT THERE WAS NO CHANGE; SECONDLY, THE HIGH BEAM WORKS PERFECTLY, INDICATING THE THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH THE OUTER TRANSPARENT SHIELD. THE HIGH BEAM BULB LIES IN A REGULAR REFLECTION BOWL RATHER THAN IN A PROJECTOR LIKE THE LOW BEAM USED. OTHER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH REGULAR REFLECTION BOWL FOR LOW BEAM WORKS PERFECTLY, SUCH AS 2007 BUICK LUCERNE (12 YEARS AGE!). THEREFORE, THE DESIGN OF THE LOW BEAM USING A PROJECTOR ON 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA IS DEFECTIVE, PUTTING THE DRIVER AND PASSENGERS INTO DANGER WHEN THE LOW-BEAM HEADLIGHTS GETTING DIM. THEY NEED TO OPEN A RECALL AND REPLACE THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT. I CAN BARELY SEE UNLESS MY HEADLIGHTS ARE ON. THIS PROBLEM HAS ALSO BEEN DANGEROUS IN THE RAIN AND I'VE ALMOST GOTTEN IN ACCIDENTS. NISSAN NEEDS TO RECALL THE HEADLIGHTS. I KNOW OTHER PEOPLE WITH AN ALTIMA BETWEEN 2013-2015 WHO HAVE GOTTEN IN ACCIDENTS BECAUSE OF THE VERY DIM HEADLIGHTS. MY HUSBAND HAS A JEEP AND HIS HEADLIGHTS ARE NOTICEABLY BETTER. NISSAN CANNOT DAY THEIR VEHICLE IS SAFE IF THIS IS HAPPENING. IT'S SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA THAT REVS UP WHILE I;M DRIVING AND THEN STOPS. I TURN IT OFF AND START IT AGAIN. IT DOES THIS CONSTANTLY. IT'S VERY DANGEROUS BECAUSE I'M DRIVING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I HEAR A REVVING UP SOUND, THE CAR STARTS TO HESITATE,, IT SLOWS DOWN AND THEN COMES TO A COMPLETE STOP. IT DOESN;T GIVE ME A CHANCE TO PULL OFF THE ROAD. I HAVE TO IMMEDIATELY PUT ON MY HAZARD LIGHTS. IT STOPS WITHOUT WARNING. ONCE I HEAR THE REVVING UP SOUND, WITHIN A FEW SECONDS SHE HESITATES, SLOWS DOWN AND COME TO A COMPLETE STOP. VERY, VERY DANGEROUS. THE CAR HESITATES WHEN MAKING TURNS ALSO. CAR DOES NOT ACCELERATE IF YOU STOP AT A LIGHT LIKE SHE SUPPOSE TO. LET ME EXPLAIN. WHEN I'M AT A RED LIGHT AND THE LIGHT TURNS GREEN, I PUT MY FOOT ON THE GAS AND THE CAR DOES NOT ACCELERATE, SHE HESITATES, GO SLOWLY, THEN KICKS IN AND ALLOWS YOU TO PROCEED. I'M VERY AFRAID TO DRIVE IT. I HAVE HEARD OTHERS AND ON THE NEWS SAY PEOPLES EXPERIENCE WITH THEIR NISSAN ALTIMA SHUTTING DOWN JUST LIKE MINE. FOR ME ITS SHUTTING DOWN EVERYWHERE. IT'S HAPPENED ON THE HIGHWAY, STREET, ALWAYS WHEN IN MOTION, DURING TURNS, AFTER STOPPING AT A RED LIGHT AND ITS TIME TO PROCEED. I'VE ALMOST GOTTEN HIT BY OTHER CARS MANY TIMES WHEN SHE SUDDENLY STALLS. SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THIS VEHICLE. I DON'T HAVE VIDEO OF INCIDENT BECAUSE IT HASN'T HAD AN ACCIDENT YET, BUT I'M SURE AN ACCIDENT CAN HAPPEN AT ANY DAY. I'M NERVOUS EVERY TIME I DRIVE IT. IT'S THE MERCIES OF GOD THAT I HAVEN'T HAD AN ACCIDENT. PLEASE NOTE I WAS ALMOST IN AN ACCIDENT THAT WOULD HAVE BADLY INJURED OR KILLED ME WHEN I WAS MAKING A LEFT TURN ON HWY 78. THE CAR STALLED WHILE MAKING A LEFT TURN. THE SUV ALMOST HIT ME AS I WAS MAKING MY LEFT TURN AND THE CAR STALLED AND THE SUV STOPPED JUST AS IT WAS ABOUT TO HIT ME. I WAS SHAKEN UP SO BADLY, I HAD TO PARK MY CAR AND CALM MY NERVES. THIS SHOULDN'T BE HAPPENING. IT'S A DANGEROUS CAR.

Summary

CVT DTC CODE P17F0 BROUGHT THE CAR TO THE DEALER TO HAVE THE CVT FLUID CHANGED AT THE 60,000 MILE SERVICE. THE DEALER SHOWED ME THE DTC CODE INDICATING THAT THERE IS A CVT PROBLEM. THE DEALER ALSO STATED THAT WHEN THE 2014 ALTIMA WITH AN L33 ENGINE CAME OUT, NISSAN WAS CHANGING THE CVT BECAUSE THE CODE INDICATES AN IMMINENT FAILURE. THE DEALER STATED THAT SINCE THEN BECAUSE IT COST NISSAN TOO MUCH, NISSAN HAS STARTED TO REBUILD THE CVT AND THE DEALERS HAVE A TRAINED MECHANIC TO REBUILD THE CVT AND CORRECT THE CVT JUDDER CODE. THE DEALER STATED THEY WOULD CONTACT NISSAN AND ADVISE WHAT HOW NISSAN WILL CORRECT THE DEFICIENCY. NOW OVER 2 WEEKS, THE DEALER HAS NOT RETURNED MY PHONE CALLS TO ADVISE HOW NISSAN WILL HANDLE. MY WIFE DRIVES THE CAR WITH MY YOUNG DAUGHTER AND I TRAVEL FOR WORK. I AM NOW CONCERNED THE CVT WILL BE PROBLEMS WHEN I AM AWAY AND COULD INADVERTENTLY CAUSE A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT WHEN SHE IS DRIVING IF THE CVT FAILS. THIS SHOULD BE A SAFETY CAMPAIGN THAT THE NHTSA TAKES ON AND PURSUES. NISSAN KNOWS ABOUT THEIR PROBLEMS AND EVENTUALLY WHEN THERE IS A FAILURE ON THE HIGHWAY SOMEONE WILL GET KILLED OR IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED AND THE CAUSAL FACTORS HAVE NOT BEEN IDENTIFIED ATTRIBUTED TO THE ACCIDENT. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AND IT SEEMS LIKE NISSAN IS NOT CONCERNED OR PERFORMING A RECALL JUST AS THE WAY NISSAN IS HANDLING THE TAKATA AIR BAG PROBLEMS IN THEIR CARS. FURTHER, IT IS EXTREMELY INTERESTING THAT WHEN THE CAR HAS BEEN IN FOR PAS SERVICE, THE OTHER NISSAN DEALERS DID NOT DO THE QUICK SIMPLE CHECK OF THE CODES TO ENSURE THERE WERE NO PROBLEMS. WOULDN'T IT BENEFIT THEM AS IT COULD PRODUCE BUSINESS?? HOW STUPID AND POOR SERVICE WE RECEIVE FROM THE DEALERS.

Summary

ABOUT FIVE MONTHS AGO BACK IN AUGUST 2018 MY HUSBAND WAS DRIVING MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN OUT OF NOWHERE IT STALLED. HE EXPLAINED THAT IT JUST STALLED BUT WOULD START BACK UP AND THEN WHEN HE WOULD SHIFT IT INTO DRIVE, IT WOULD STALL OUT AGAIN. WE THEN TOOK IT TO A SHOP AND THEY COULD NOT REPLICATE WHAT IT DID WITH MY HUSBAND. SO, THEY SAID IT MIGHT BE A SOFTWARE ISSUE AND UPDATED IT. FAST FORWARD THIS PAST FRIDAY ON JANUARY 11TH, 2019, I WAS AT A RED STOP SIGN, WHEN OUT OF NOWHERE MY CAR STALLS. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT SOMEONE HAD HIT ME BECAUSE IT JUST JOLTED TO A STOP SO SUDDENLY IT FELT AS IF SOMEONE HIT MY CAR. SAME THING HAPPENED THAT OCCURRED WITH MY HUSBAND. SHUT OFF CAR, RESTARTS PERFECTLY, THEN SHIFT TO DRIVE AND STALLS. I GET A TOW TRUCK TO TOW IT TO THE LOCAL NISSAN DEALERSHIP. EVEN THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER SAID HE'S NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT, AND THAT HE DROVE IT OFF THE TOW TRUCK NO PROBLEM. I GET A CALL TWO DAYS LATER FROM NISSAN SAYING THAT IT SHOWS UP AS A TRANSMISSION ISSUE AND THAT IT WILL COST AROUND $5,000 TO REPLACE IT. NO EXPLANATION TO WHY A FIVE-YEAR-OLD CAR THAT HAS BEEN PERFECTLY MAINTAINED WOULD NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION. OF COURSE, THE WARRANTY IS ONLY COVERED AT 60,000 MILES SO I HAD NO WAY OF COVERAGE. THAT DAY I DID INVESTIGATING ON WEBSITES TO FIND A RECALL OR ANY INFORMATION. WHAT I FOUND WAS DESCRIBING EXACTLY WHAT OCCURRED WITH MY CAR AND TO LOTS AND LOTS OF PEOPLE WITH THIS VEHICLE! I THEN CONTACTED NISSAN CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND THEY CREATED A CASE NUMBER FOR ME. I JUST RECEIVED A CALL TODAY FROM THEM STATING: "NISSAN WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ASSIST YOU IN ANY WAY." THIS IS A MANUFACTURING ISSUE WITH EITHER THE TRANSMISSION OR A SOFTWARE ISSUE THAT IS SAYING IT'S A TRANSMISSION ISSUE. THIS NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED FURTHER FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CONSUMERS OF THIS VEHICLE OR IF PEOPLE ARE BEING WRONGFULLY CHARGED MONEY.

Summary

THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS ON OUR 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA ARE SO DIM YOU CAN BARELY SEE. I CHANGED THE BULBS OUT TO A BRIGHTER AFTERMARKET LED BULB AND THE DIFFERENCE IS MINIMAL AT BEST. THE HIGH BEAMS ARE STILL VERY BRIGHT BUT THEY ARE NOT THE PROJECTION STYLE. IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO SEE AT NIGHT WHEN THERE IS ONCOMING TRAFFIC I MUST KEEP THE FOG LIGHTS ONTO LIGHT UP THE ROAD. THE ILLUMINATION IS SO POOR THAT SECURITY LIGHTS THAT ARE OVER PEOPLE'S DRIVEWAYS ARE BRIGHTER THAN THE HEADLIGHTS AND DRIVING AT NIGHT IN THE RAIN IS BASICALLY IMPOSSIBLE ON LOW BEAM. I'VE TALKED TO A NISSAN MECHANIC AND HE SAID THE ONLY TRUE FIX WILL BE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY BECAUSE THEIR ARE ISSUES WITH THE MATERIALS BREAKING DOWN INSIDE THE PROJECTOR PORTION OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. IF THAT'S THE CASE NISSAN HAS DONE A POOR JOB OF DESIGNING THEIR HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY AND SHOULD REPLACE THEM AT THEIR COST AS THIS IS A VERY REAL HAZARD. AFTER SPEAKING TO THE MECHANIC I STARTED LOOKING ONLINE AND HAVE FOUND THIS ISN'T AN ISOLATED ISSUE, EVIDENTLY IT'S ALL ALTIMAS FROM 2013-2015 THAT ARE EXPERIENCING THIS PROBLEM.

Summary

LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS WAY TOO QUICKLY, BECOME UNSAFE DUE TO WELL KNOWN FAULTY MANUFACTURER DEFECT. FAULTY PART MAY BE CALLED "REFLECTOR". LIGHT OUTPUT QUALITY IS NOT SAFE! NEITHER THE RIGHT OR LEFT HEADLIGHT PROVIDE ENOUGH LIGHT TO SAFELY OPERATE MY VEHICLE WHEN DRIVING AT NIGHT. THIS IS A WELL KNOW ISSUE! YET, NISSAN HAS NOT ISSUED A SAFETY RECALL??? HOWEVER, THIS NISSAN MANUFACTURE WELL KNOWN SAFETY DEFECT WILL BE FIXED THROUGH NISSAN FOR THE OBSCENE COST OF APPROXIMATELY $1000. DISGUSTING, SAD, AND UNACCEPTABLE! AFTER RESEARCHING, THERE ARE MANY, MANY DRIVERS, MYSELF INCLUDED, THAT HAVE BEEN FORCED TO FILE COMPLAINTS WITH THE NHTSA. UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME, I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THE HIGH AMOUNT OF CUSTOMERS HAVING TO SPEND SO MUCH MONEY TO FIX A PROBLEM NISSAN KNOWS ABOUT?? I PURCHASED NEW HIGH QUALITY REPLACEMENT BULBS, HAD HEADLIGHTS RE-AIMED, AND HAD HEADLIGHT COVERS PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED. NOTHING HELPED!! AFTER RESEARCHING, IT APPEARS THE WELL KNOW ISSUE IS A FAULTY PART ENCLOSED INSIDE OF THE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY. I BELIEVE IT IS CALLED A "REFLECTOR"? I HAVE WASTED $200 FOR NEW BULBS, RE-AIMING, AND HAVING LENSES CLEANED. THIS AGAIN, IS FLAT OUT DISGUSTING. HAD NISSAN INFORMED ME OF THIS DEFECT, I WOULD NOT HAVE WASTED MY TIME AND MONEY. I ALSO SUFFERED SEVERE FRUSTRATION WHEN ALL THAT I TRIED DID NOT HELP. ALL THE WHILE NISSAN KNEW I WAS WASTING MY TIME, MONEY, AND WELL BEING. PLEASE HOLD NISSAN ACCOUNTABLE. A LESS VIGILANT DRIVER MAY NOT REALIZE THE DANGEROUS SITUATION THEY ARE DRIVING IN, AND... THANK YOU NHTSA!

DISCOVERED THE INADEQUATELY POOR LOW-BEAM ILLUMINATION LEVEL IN 2017 WHEN I HAD TO REPLACE THE DRIVERS-SIDE HEADLAMP. NOTICED THE BEAM DID NOT LIGHT UP ON MY SHIRT WHEN STANDING IN FRONT OF THE CAR. THE PASSENGER SIDE LAMP DID. NOT GREATLY, BUT THERE WAS A BEAM ON MY SHIRT. REPLACED THE LOW-BEAM LAMP AGAIN AND DID BOTH SIDES AND THE PROBLEM WITH POOR ILLUMINATION CONTINUED ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. AT THIS POINT MY 2014 MODEL WAS OUT OF WARRANTY AND I HAD STARTED USING MY HIGH-BEAM LIGHTS AT NIGHT AND LIVED WITH IT. THEN DISCOVERED MY CAR WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE AND DECIDED TO SUBMIT THIS NHTSA COMPLAINT.

THIS IS THE SECOND TRANSMISSION ISSUE I'VE HAD IN LESS THAN A YEAR. THE CAR BEGAN SHAKING IN FEBRUARY AND STOPPED ON ME WHILE AT A STOP LIGHT. THERE HAVE BEEN NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS OR ANYTHING TO ALERT ME OF AN ISSUE. NOW THE CAR WILL HESITATE SEVERLY BEFORE SHIFTING GEARS. IF I TAKE THE CARE OUT OF PARK INTO DRIVE OR REVERSE, IT TAKES UPWARDS OF 30 SECONDS FOR THE CAR TO ENGAGE INTO THAT GEAR. I HAVE BEEN STRANDED AT HOME AND AT GROCERY STORES DUE TO THE FAULTY TRANSMISSION WHICH I'M NOW BEING TOLD NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. I HAVE HAD TO ENDURE RANDOM MOMENTS OF SHAKING AND EVEN FEELING AS IF THE CAR HAS DIED WHILE DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY. THERE HAVE BEEN NO INDICATOR LIGHTS REGARDING ANY ISSUES WITH THE CAR THE CAR IS LESS THAN 5YRS OLD AND IS A LITTLE OVER 100K MILES I HAVE BEEN HAVING TRANSMISSION ISSUES NOW FOR ABOUT ALMOST A YEAR.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT THIS IS SAFETY ISSUE TO ALL DRIVERS OF ALTIMAS, THEIR PASSENGERS AND PEDESTRIANS.

Summary

OVER THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS HAVE BEEN STEADILY DETERIORATING TO THE POINT THEY HAVE BECOME A SAFETY HAZARD. THE INITIAL THOUGHT THAT THE BULBS REQUIRED REPLACEMENT; HOWEVER, THIS HAS NOT REMEDIED THE ISSUE. THE HEADLIGHT LENSES ARE NOT YELLOWED OR FOGGED OVER, AND THE HEADLIGHT BULBS ARE BRAND NEW HIGH-QUALITY HEADLIGHT LAMPS. THERE IS NO OTHER KNOWN ISSUE WITH THE HEADLIGHTS. THE HIGH BEAM WORK WITHOUT ISSUE AND IT IS BECOMING MORE FREQUENT TO WHERE THE HIGH-BEAMS ARE NEEDED TO SUPPLEMENT NIGHTTIME LIGHTING IN AREAS WHERE LIOW BEAMS SHOULD BE MORE THAN SUFFICIENT. THE LOW BEAM LIGHTING IS AT THE POINT TO WHERE IT IS BECOMING A HAZARD TO ME AS THE DRIVER; BUT ALSO, IS BECOMING A HAZARD TO ONCOMING DRIVERS, AS THE USE OF HIGH-BEAM LIGHTING IS BEING USED MORE FREQUENTLY. THE BRIGHNESS OF THE LOW BEAM LIGHT DOES NOT CHANGE IF THE VEHICLE IS PARKED, STANDING, OR IN MOTION, AND THE DIM LIGHTING IS MOST HAZARDOUS WHEN DRIVING AROUND CORNERS OR ON DARK ROADS WITHOUT STREET LIGHTING. THE CAR HAS NOT BEEN SEEN BY NISSAN OR A MECHANIC BECAUSE IT IS OUT OF THE WARRANTY PERIOD AND ESTIMATES TO INSPECT THE LIGHTING ISSUE BEGINS AT $80. A SIMPLE INTERNET SEARCH INDICATES THAT THIS IS A FREQUENT ISSUE, AND I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY FEEDBACK OR INFORMATION THE NHTSA MIGHT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE ON THIS AND RELATED ISSUES.

HOWEVER, AS RECENT AS MAY I HAD TRANSMISSION ISSUES THAT RESULTED IN CVT GETTING FIXED. THEN IN JULY SIMILIAR ISSUE WHICH DEALERSHIP REPORTED THERE WAS AN UPDATE NEEDED ON MY CAR, A SELONID NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. AFTER SPENDING OVER 2,000 ON MY CAR IT IS STILL NOT FIXED. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS BACK ON AND NOT ABLE TO ACCELARATE ON THE HIGHWAY. THIS HAS CAUSED A DEFINITE SAFETY ISSUE AND IS AN ONGOING ISSUE THAT NISSAN AND THE DEALERSHIP NEED TO ADDRESS.

WAS TOLD ONLY WAY TO FIX THE WELL KNOWN PROBLEM WITHOUT A SPECIFIC DIAGNOSIS ON MY VEHICLE IS IF THERE IS AN NTSB RECALL. GIVEN THE SIGNIFICANT RISK ASSOCIATED WITH A CAR THAT STALLS WHEN YOU ARE PULLING INTO TRAFFIC OR MAKING A LEFT HAND TURN, I WOULD LIKE THE NTSB TO BE AWARE OF THIS AND DETERMINE IF THE RISK TO THE CONSUMER OUTWEIGHS THE COST TO THE MANUFACTURER.

POOR VISIBILITY: WHEN SUNLIGHT OR ARTIFICIAL LIGHTS STRIKES THE WINDSHIELD AT ABOUT 40 TO 60 DEGREES, IT PREVENTS GOOD VISIBILITY, SPECIALLY WHEN ENTERING MY GARAGE. THE PROBLEM BECOMES WORSE AND UNDER RAINY-FOGGY CONDITIONS. MAKING VERY DIFFICULT TO SEE THE ROAD AND THE SIGNS, SPITE OF USING THE WIND SHIELD WIPERS AND THE DEFOGGER TO THE MAX. I WENT TO THE LOCAL NISSAN DEALERSHIP TO REPORT THIS PROBLEM; I WAS TOLD THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE WINDSHIELD. I SENT A LETTER ON 7/24/16 TO NISSAN OF NORTH AMERICA TO NOTIFY THEM OF THIS PROBLEM. NO WRITTEN RESPONSE GIVEN; A CLERK OR SECRETARY CALLED ME TO TELL ME TO TAKE THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP. THEY TOLD ME AGAIN THERE IN NOTHING WRONG WITH THE WINDSHIELD. ON AUGUST 30TH, 2016 WHILE DRIVING WITH 2 PASSENGERS, THE POOR VISIBILITY OF THE WINDSHIELD PUT US IN SERIOUS RISK OF CRASH AT AN INTERSTATE HIGHWAY. THIS PROBLEM NEEDS IMMEDIATE CORRECTION, BEFORE A FATALITY OCCURS.

I COMMUTE IN A CAR 80 MILES (TO/FROM WORK) 5 A DAY WITH HEADLIGHTS THAT HAVE LITTLE TO ANY PROJECTION FROM THE HEAD LIGHTS WHEN I USING THE LOW BEAM LIGHTING. WHEN IT RAINS MY ABILITY TO SEE THE LINES ON THE ROAD ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL I AM ABLE TO RETURN TO THE HIGH BEAMS. THIS IS SCARY FOR ME EACH NIGHT I AM DRIVING HOME GIVEN I AM A FEMALE DRIVING FROM WORK BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 1:00 AM AND 2:00 AM.

NISSAN ALTIMA 2014, 88000 MILES. HEADLIGHTS ARE SO DIM THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE CAR. VERY DANGEROUS TO BE DRIVING AT NIGHT. IT IS NOT AN ISSUE WITH THE BULBS, THE WHOLE HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY HAS TO BE REPLACED. BRIGHTS WORK FINE.

Summary

I COMMUTE 100 MILES A DAY AND DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY VEHICLE ONCE HEADLIGHTS ARE REQUIRED. I ALSO LIVE IN A RURAL AREA WHERE THERE IS LIMITED TO NO STREET LIGHTING. DRIVING WITH HIGH BEAMS PUTS OTHER DRIVERS AT RISK SO THIS IS NOT SAFE OPTION. NISSAN KNOWINGLY IS PUTTING DRIVERS AT RISK AS THIS PROBLEM AFFECTS 2013-2015 ALTIMA MODELS--THEY SHOULD HAVE CORRECTED THE PROBLEM. I MAY HAVE TO GET RID OF THE CAR.

ON 8/31/2018, I TOOK MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA INTO THE FRED HASS NISSAN SVC, DEPT. FOR AN OIL CHANGE, IN TOMBALL TX AND WHILE THERE, REPORTED THAT THE SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT WAS REMAINING ON AFTER 7 SECONDS AND REMAINED ON ALL THE WHILE THE VEHICLE WAS BEING DRIVEN. THE SERVICE ADVISOR STATED THAT CODE FOUND WAS CLEARED AND NO REPAIR WAS RECOMMENDED. ON 9/5/2018, I SPOKE WITH (XXXX), SVC, MGR. AT FRED NISSAN AND INFORMED HIM THAT THE SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT WAS ON AGAIN. MR. (XXXX) MADE A 7AM APPOINTMENT FOR ME TO BRING MY VEHICLE TO THE SVC. DEPT., ON 9/6/2018 FOR FURTHER DIAGNOSIS AND HE WOULD CONTACT NISSAN FOR RECOMMENDATIONS. LATER ON, MR. (XXXX) INFORMED ME THAT HE HAD SPOKEN WITH SOMEONE AT NISSAN AND WAS TOLD THAT NISSAN WOULD NOT COVER THE COST OF ANY CURRENT OR FUTURE REPAIRS TO THE SUPPLEMENTAL AIR SYSTEM, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A SAFETY ISSUE. UNFORTUNATELY, THE GOLD EXTENDED WARRANTY I PURCHASED DOES NOT COVER MALFUNCTIONS OF SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG SYSTEM OR ANY OF ITS COMPONENTS. THE SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT CONTINUES TO COME ON UPON A COLD AND WARM START AND REMAINS ON WHILE THE VEHICLE IS BEING DRIVEN.

THE HEADLIGHTS ARE SO BAD THAT IT'S A DRIVING HAZARD WHEN DRIVING OUTSIDE OF AREAS WITH VERY GOOD STREET LIGHTING, OR ON RURAL ROADS. WITH THE HEADLIGHTS (ON LOW) YOU CAN'T SEE "ANYTHING" AND IF SOME IS WALKING, OR BIKING, ON THE ROAD (OR IF THERE IS AN ANIMAL), YOU DON'T SEE THEM UNTIL IT'S "TOO LATE". PLEASE FORCE NISSAN TO MAKE RE-CALL AND CHANGE THE HEALDIGHTS. THERE ARE SEVERAL POST ON INTERNET ABOUT IT AND IT'S CLEAR IS'S NOT A "USAGE" ISSUES, BUT JUST A BAD DESIGN/PRODUCT. I HAVE NOT HAD AN ACCIDENT (YET) SO THIS PETITION IS TO PRE-POSITIVE ONE, TO AVOID THAT ACCIDENTS HAPPEN.

THE CAR DIED IN A STORE PARKING LOT AND I HAD IT TOWED TO A LOCAL SHOP. THE CODES INDICATED A TECH SERVICE BULLETIN THAT STATES "NEEDS A NEW TRANSMISSION". NOW MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP IS DENYING THIS IS THE CORRECT CODE AND IT ONLY NEEDS SOME MINOR ADJUSTING. I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS FOR OVER A YEAR AND NOW MY POWER TRAIN WARRANT EXPIRES IN LESS THAN 100 MILES. INITIALLY THEY AGREED WITH ME AND TOLD ME IT NEEDS THE TRANSMISSION REPLACED, BUT NOW THEY HAVE DENIED IT. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE IN THIS VEHICLE. IT SPUTTERS,JERKS, HESITATES AND LOSES ACCELERATION AND IT IS SCARY TO HAVE TO DRIVE IT. I DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO FROM HERE.

IN DECEMBER 2016 WITH APPROXIMATELY 40K MILES ON ODOMETER, THE CAR STALLED AT AN INTERSECTION. AFTER STARTING AGAIN, IT STALLED EACH TIME WHILE PUTTING IT IN GEAR. AFTER A TOW TO NISSAN DEALER, THEY INFORMED ME OF A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM. THEY MENTIONED REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION, BUT DECIDED TO CHANGE AN INTERNAL COMPONENT (I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT PART) TO THE TRANSMISSION INSTEAD OF THE WHOLE THING, WHICH AT THE TIME I WAS O.K. WITH BECAUSE I WASN'T PLEASED A 2 1\2 YEAR OLD CAR WITH 40K MILES WHICH I BOUGHT BRAND NEW SHOULD NEED A TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT (ESPECIALLY WASN'T PLEASED IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WITH A REBUILT ONE). IT RAN OK AFTERWARDS, BUT SOMETHING WASN'T THE SAME AS WHEN IT WAS NEW. SEVERAL TIMES I REPORTED A PROBLEM WITH THE REVS JUST BEFORE THE CAR COMES TO A COMPLETE STOP. RPM'S WOULD SPIKE AND THEN DIP DOWN LOW LIKE THE CAR WAS GOING TO STALL BEFORE LEVELING OUT AGAIN. I BROUGHT THE CAR TO THE DEALER COUPLE TIMES AFTERWARDS AND THEY EXPLAINED IT WAS NORMAL AND SIMILAR MODELS THEY TESTED DID THE SAME THING. FAST FORWARD TO AUGUST 2018, THE CAR NOW HAS 65K MILES AND THE PROBLEM WITH STALLING WHILE DRIVING IT HAS RE-OCCURRED. ANOTHER TOW TO DEALER AND NOW THEY SUGGEST A $4000+ TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT (WITH A REBUILT ONE). NOT A HAPPY NISSAN OWNER! HAVE READ MANY ONLINE COMPLAINTS WITH THIS YEAR AND MODEL VEHICLE (2014 NISSAN ALTIMA) WITH SAME PROBLEM. NISSAN SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND DECLARE A RECALL ON THESE CARS. NOT SAFE TO DRIVE AS THEY CAN STALL OUT AT ANY TIME ENDANGERING LIVES! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE.

Summary

I LAST MONTH FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE NTHSA ABOUT MY 2014 ALTIMA'S BAD TRANSMISSION. I HAD CONTACTED NISSAN USA MULTIPLE TIMES. THEY FIRST ACKNOWLEDGED LIABILITY (EVEN THOUGH IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY) AND OFFERED TO PAY THE PART (NEW TRANSMISSION). BUT ON AUG 15, 2018, THEY CLAIMED THAT SINCE THE LOCAL DEALER "CANNOT DUPLICATE THE CONCERN", MY CAR IS "OKAY TO DRIVE", DENYING ANY RESPONSIBILITY OF ANY FUTURE ACCIDENTS OR DAMAGE. MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP NISSAN MAGUIRE DOES NOT AGREE WITH NISSAN USA. THE CAR IS NOT IN GOOD OPERABLE CONDITION. WHEN I SHIFT THE GEAR TO DRIVE, THE STEPPING ON THE GAS DOES NOT DELIVER POWER TO THE ENGINE FOR 2-3 SECONDS. SO, WHEN I STOP ON THE HILL AND PUT IT TO DRIVE, THE CAR ROLLS DOWN FOR SECONDS UNTIL IT MOVES FORWARD. BUT NISSAN USA RENOUNCED ITS LIABILITY AND REFUSED TO PROVIDE A NEW TRANSMISSION. I ASKED WHAT IF I GET INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT AND ALL THEY SAID IS CONTACT THEM WHEN IT HAPPENS. I THINK THEY ARE ACCOMPLICT IN MURDERING ME AND OTHERS ON THE ROAD.

I WAS COMPLETELY STOPPED A BUSY INTERSECTION WAITING TO MAKE A LEFT TURN. WITH NO WARNING THE CAR JERKED FORWARD. THE FORCE OF THE JERKING MOTION WAS SO GREAT THAT I INITIALLY THOUGHT I WAS REAR ENDED. THE CAR STARTED SPUTTERING LIKE IT WAS GOING TO SHUT OFF, I HAD CARS IN FRONT AND BACK OF ME AND HAD NO WHERE TO GO. I SHIFTED THE CAR INTO PARK TO TRY AND GIVE IT SOME GAS TO KEEP IT FROM SHUTTING OFF AND IT IMMEDIATELY SHUT DOWN. I TRIED STARTING THE CAR AGAIN AND IT IMMEDIATELY SHUT DOWN AS SOON AS I TRIED TO SHIFT INTO DRIVE. I DID THIS MULTIPLE TIMES AND THE CAR KEPT SHUTTING DOWN. I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO KEEP MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND THE GAS AT THE SAME TIME AND KEEP THE CAR RUNNING. I MADE IT TO WORK THANKFULLY I WAS ONLY TWO BLOCKS AWAY AND HAD TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED BACK HOME. I WAS SHAKING AND SCARED TO DEATH. I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!! I LATER FOUND OUT THE CVT TRANSMISSION FAILED AND WILL COST APROX $4000! THIS CAR IS ONLY 4 YEARS OLD. AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH AND READING ALL OF THE COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS CAR AND THE TRANSMISSION.. I AM SHOCKED THAT NISSAN IS STILL ALLOWED TO CONTINUE WITH THIS "DEATH TRAP" OF A CAR! SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET HURT IN THIS CAR!!

Summary

IN AUGUST OF 2017 MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA'S TORQUE CONVERTER FRAGMENTED PIECES OF ITSELF INTO MY TRANSMISSION FLUID. THIS RESULTED IN MY CAR TUGGING AND SHUDDERING WHILE DRIVING UNDER SPEEDS OF 30 MPH INCLUDING SLOWING DOWN AND ACCELERATING. AT A POINT MY VEHICLE TURNED OFF WHILE IN DRIVE AND I TOOK MY VEHICLE BACK TO THE SELMA NISSAN DEALERSHIP. AFTER A WEEK OF NO FINDING OF THE ISSUE IT WAS BROUGHT TO FRESNO LITHIA WITH THE SAME RESULT OF NO FINDING OF THE ISSUE. A YEAR LATER THE VEHICLE PRODUCED THE SAME PROBLEMS AND AGAIN THE VEHICLE SHUT OFF WHILE IN DRIVE AND I IMMEDIATELY TOOK THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE FRESNO LITHIA DEALERSHIP FOR A FULL INSPECTION AGAIN. UPON FURTHER IDENTIFICATION THEY NOTED THAT THIS HAS BECOME A COMMON PROBLEM WITH 2013 & 2014 NISSAN ALTIMAS AS THE TORQUE CONVERTER WILL BECOME STUCK AND WHILE SHIFTING AND FORCE THE VEHICLE TO STALL AND SHUT OFF. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM AND YET I HAD TO PAY FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION FOR MY VEHICLE. I'VE CALLED NISSAN CORPORATE AT (615) 725-7154 AND THEY INFORMED ME THEY DO NOT CONDUCT RECALLS. I SEE THAT IF THIS TRANSMISSION PROBLEM IS SO COMMON WHY IS IT NOT ON A RECALL AND I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS FIX ON MY 4 YEAR OLD CAR. I'M A MARINE VETERAN WITH A 2 MONTH OLD BABY AND $3500 FOR A TRANSMISSION IS NOT CHEAP FOR ME IN MY POSITION. I DO HAVE DOCUMENTATION FROM 3 DEALERSHIPS NOTING I BROUGH IN MY VEHICLE WITH THE OCCURRING PROBLEM DATING BACK A YEAR AGO. I ALSO HAVE PRINTED DOCUMENTATION OF MY NEW TRANSMISSION FOR MY VEHICLE AND POSITIVE TEST RESULT OF MY VEHICLE PERFORMING 4 OUT OF 10 TIMES OF VEHICLE SHUDDERING AND TURNING OFF. THIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE SWEPT UNDER THE RUG BY NISSAN AS THEY MIGHT FEAR A RECALL OF THEIR VEHICLES.

LAST WEEK (JULY 19, 2018) MY FAMILY WAS ON A TRIP BACK FROM NYC TO ITHACA. WHEN WE ARRIVED IN THE ITHACA AREA AND STOPPED THE CAR AT A RED LIGHT, THE ENGINE SHUT OFF. WE WERE ABLE TO PUSH THE ENGINE BUTTON AGAIN TO RESTART THE CAR. SO, I THOUGHT IT WAS NOT A BIG DEAL. TWO DAYS LATER, THE ENGINE TURNED OFF AT A RED LIGHT ON THE ROAD AND IT DID NOT MOVE. CARS BEHIND ME KEPT HONKING AND MY DAUGHTER CRIED IN HORROR. THE ENGINE WAS IGNITED WHEN I PUSH THE ENGINE BUTTON AND THE SHIFT IS IN PARK. BUT AS SOON AS I PUT IT IN DRIVE, THE ENGINE SHUT OFF AGAIN. THEN I HAD TO PUT IT IN PARK, PUSHED THE ENGINE BUTTON, IT WAS TURNED ON. WHEN I PUT IT BACK TO DRIVE, THE ENGINE SHUT OFF. I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO. AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS FOR A FEW MINUTES, I WAS ABLE TO KEEP THE ENGINE ALIVE IN DRIVE AND DROVE THE CAR, AND PARKED THE CAR IN FRONT OF THE DEALERSHIP. I BARELY MANAGED TO DO THAT. THE DEALERSHIP SAYS I NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION. I REALIZED THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE.

THE DOUBLE SAFETY FEATURE OF PRESSING THE BREAK TO START THE CAR BECOMES VOID WHEN THE CALIPER HAS AN ISSUE EVEN WITHOUT THE BRAKE LIGHT ENGAGING TO SHOW AN ISSUE. THE CAR IS TRICKED INTO THINKING THAT THE BREAK IS BEING PRESSED AND WILL ALLOW YOU TO START IT WITH JUST PRESSING THE START BUTTON. MY 8YR OLD WAS IN THE CAR PLAYING WHILE I WAS CLEANING IT AND WAS ALSO ABLE TO PUT THE CAR IN GEAR DUE TO THE MECHANICAL SYSTEM READING THAT THE BREAK WAS ENGAGED. THE CAR ALSO CONTINUES TO RUN AFTER THE KEY IS REMOVED AND YOU CAN DRIVE OFF WITH NO KEY IN THE CAR. I

Summary

SHORTLY AFTER THE FIRST YEAR THE CAR BEGAN HESITATING AND EVENTUALLY WENT ON TO COMPLETELY CUT OFF WHILE MY FAMILY AND I WERE TRAVELING. THE TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY. I DIDN'T HAVE THAT PARTICULAR PROBLEM FOR ANOTHER YEAR AFTER THE NEW TRANSMISSION. THE DEALERSHIPS WOULD ALWAYS SAY THEY COULD NOT SUPPLICATE MY CONCERN. THE PROBLEM PERSISTING. I'M AFRAID TO PULL OUT IN TRAFFIC BECAUSE IT STALLS, JERKS OR HESITATES. I WON'T ALLOW MY CHILDREN TO DRIVE IT BECAUSE IT IS JUST TOO DANGEROUS. BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE PAID TAKEN IT FOR DIAGNOSIS THE PAST 6 MONTHS. I'M TAKING IT YET AGAIN TOMORROW. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE PATTERN. IT SEEMS TO BE WORSE ONCE PAUSING AFTER A LONG DRIVE > 50 MILES. WHILE TRAVELING THIS WEEKEND, I PAUSED AT THE HIGHWAY OFF-RAMP AND IT WOULDN'T ACCELERATE BEYOND 15 MPH. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON THIS TIME. I PULLED OVER AND CUT THE CAR OFF. IT DID FINALLY GO BUT THE RMPS STILL IDLED HIGHLY. THERE ARE SOME DAYS THE PROBLEM ISN'T PREVALENT AND THE DRIVE SEEMS SMOOTH. THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT SO DANGEROUS. I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THERE'S NO TRAFFIC BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TURN OR PULL INTO TRAFFIC.

THE DRIVER SIDE COIL SPRING, WHICH IS PART OF THE FRONT SUSPENSION, BROKE. THIS PART USES ALMOST 3/8 INCH STEEL, AND WHEN IT BREAKS UNDER COMPRESSION, CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE, AND POTENTIAL VEHICLE STABILITY ISSUES ON THE HIGHWAY. THE VEHICLE INVOLVED IS ONLY 4 YEARS OLD WITH 44000 MILES, WHICH IS NOT MUCH MILEAGE ON THIS VEHICLE. THIS PART SHOULD NOT HAVE FAILED AND IS CONSIDERED A DEFECT IN MY OPINION. WE WERE FORTUNATE THAT OUR VEHICLE WAS LOCAL, AND NOT ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN THIS HAPPENED. THERE WAS NO TIRE DAMAGE WHEN THE SPRING SNAPPED. WE HAD A MECHANIC REPLACE THE SPRING WITHIN THE WEEK.

THE PASSENGER TIE ROD BECAME DISCONNECTED AT THE POINT WHERE THE INNER AND OUTER WERE BOLTED TOGETHER. BECAUSE I WAS STRANDED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AT 2:00 AM SATURDAY MORNING I NEEDED TO HAVE THE VEHICLE TOWED TO A REPAIR SHOP. THE OWNER WAS SURPRISED THAT I WAS NEEDING REPLACEMENT ON A 2014. AFTER INSPECTING THE VEHICLE HE FOUND THAT THE BOLT WAS NOT SECURED AND BOLTED ALL THE WAY DOWN. BOTH SIDES NEED REPLACEMENT ALTHOUGH I CAN ONLY AFFORD TO FIX ONE SIDE NOW. HE DID EXPLAIN IT WAS A SAFETY HAZARD AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED ASAP. HE BELIEVED IT CAME THIS WAY FROM THE MANUFACTURER, BECAUSE TIE RODS LAST MUCH LONGER THAN 3-4 YEARS. I WAS DRIVING ON A CITY STREET MAKING A LEFT HAND U TURN AT ABOUT 5 MILLED AN HOUR WHEN MY CAR CAME TO A STOP. THOUGHT MY TRANSMISSION WENT OUT. GOT OUT AT LOOKED AT MY FRONT TIRE THAT WAS TURNED TO THE LEFT AND COULD SEE THE TIE ROD SEPARATED.

Summary

THE TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED AT AROUND 25,000 MILES WHICH THEY TOLD US TWICE BEFORE FINALLY REPLACING THAT NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH IT. THE CAR WOULD ROLL WHILE IN PARK AND STALL AFTER TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED NO ISSUES UNTIL NOW. AROUND 68,000 MILES THE CAR NOW HAS A SLIGHT HESITATION AND WILL STALL. TOOK IT TO THE SHOP AND A CODE OF P0776 WAS THROWN. SERVICE IN FINE LIGHT NEVER CAME ON AND STILL ISN'T ON. TALKED TO A FEW SHOPS AND THEY ALL TOLD ME THIS IS THE THIRD MOST LOOKED UP CODE FOR NISSAN. NISSAN WARRANTY IS ONLY 1 YEAR AND 12,000 MILES ON THEIR TRANSMISSION. THAT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME EITHER WITH SUCH A SHORT MONTH AND MILEAGE AS WELL. NOW WE ARE HAVING TO POSSIBLY BUY ANOTHER TRANSMISSION FOR A CAR WITH ONLY 68,000 MILES WITH A PRETTY MUCH NEW TRANSMISSION. HOW DOES A TRANSMISSION GO OUT WITH ONLY 43,000 MILES ON IT. WITH THE ISSUES NOW THIS HAPPENED WHILE THE CAR WAS BEING DRIVEN. TO SUM IT UP THE GAS PEDAL HAD TO BE PUSHED TO THE FLOOR TO GET TO 70 MILES AN HOUR WHILE ON THE GA400.

I STARTED EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH MY VEHICLE ABOUT A YEAR AGO. WHILE DRIVING THE CAR SEEM TO NOT CHANGE GEARS. I HAD TO COAST TO THE SIDE OF THE STREET, TURN THE VEHICLE OFF AND RESTART IT WHICH MADE THE VEHICLE TO WHAT I CALL "RESET". THIS DID NOT HAPPEN AGAIN UNTIL MONTHS LATER. NOW MY VEHICLE FROM TIME TO TIME, WHILE DRIVING THE VEHICLE SEEM AS IF IT WILL NOT GO WHEN I ACCELERATE FROM A STOP IN TRAFFIC. I THOUGHT IT NEED TRANSMISSION FLUID. I DISCOVERED THAT IT REQUIES CTV TRANSMISSION FLUID AND CAN ONLY BE DONE AT A DEALERSHIP WHICH WAS NOT TRUE. MY LOCAL CERTIFIED TRANSMISSION REPAIR CENTER SAID THEY COULD PERFORM A DIAGNOSTIC FOR $99, WHICH WE DID. WE ARE NOW BEING TOLD THAT THE TRANSMISSION NEED TO BE REPLACED AND THAT THIS WAS A PROBLEM ON MOST OF THE NISSAN ALTIMA'S. REPLACEMENT WOULD COST ABOUT $4,800. WHY HASN'T NISSAN RECALLED THESE VEHICLES AFTER SO MANY COMPLAINTS?

THE LOW BEAM ON MY ALTIMA 2014 SV 4CY. 2.5L, IS TOTALLY INADEQUATE. THERE IS MINIMAL VISIBILITY AT NIGHT WITH LOW BEAM, CREATING A VERY HAZARDOUS PROBLEM ON THE ROADWAY. THIS IS NOT A UNIQUE PROBLEM ON MY ALTIMA, IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM ON MOST OF THE 2013, 2014, 2015, ETC. MODELS. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A PRODUCTION PROBLEM WITH THE NISSAN ALTIMA. CHANGING BULBS TO A HIGHER QUALITY HAS NOT RESOLVED THE PROBLEM AND NISSAN DEALERSHIP HAS QUOTED APPROX. $1000.00 TO RECTIFY THE PROBLEM. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND I AS WELL AS OTHERS THINK THE MANUFACTURER SHOULD RECALL AND ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM SINCE IT IS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD..

Summary

RECALL TO REPROGRAM CVT DONE 10/4/17 AT NISSAN. 12/6/17 VEHICLE BEGAN RAPIDLY DROPPING SPEED WHILE DRIVING ON HIGHWAY WITHOUT ME APPLYING BRAKES. VERY DANGEROUS SINCE THERE WERE NO BRAKE LIGHTS TO ALERT OTHER VEHICLES BEHIND ME TO DECREASE SPEED. TURNED HAZARDS ON & MADE IT TO SLOW LANE, THEN SHOULDER OF THE ROAD. IT WOULDN'T GO BACK INTO DRIVE FOR 15 MINS. ONCE I COULD IT DRIVE AGAIN, IT CONTINUED TO HAVE DECREASED SPEED. AT TRAFFIC LIGHT IT WOULDN'T ACCELERATE IN DRIVE & I HAD TO WAIT AWHILE BEFORE IT DID. DROVE TO MECHANIC FOR DIAGNOSIS & THEY SAID IT SHOULD BE TAKEN TO NISSAN. HAD TO BE DRUG ONTO A FLATBED TO BE TOWED A VERY SHORT DISTANCE SINCE IT WOULD NO LONGER SHIFT INTO DRIVE, REVERSE OR NEUTRAL. SERVICE ADVISOR AT EAST CHARLOTTE NISSAN SAID IT NEEDED NEW TRANSMISSION & GAVE A $4,200 QUOTE. HE SAID THIS WAS KNOWN ISSUE WITH CVT TRANSMISSION, MANY WITH LESS THAN 30,000 MILES BUT THOSE WERE STILL UNDER MANUFACTURER WARRANTY. HAD NEW NISSAN FACTORY REMANUFACTURED TRANSMISSION INSTALLED (THEY SAID IT HAD TO BE A CVT BECAUSE VEHICLE WON'T TAKE ANY OTHER TRANSMISSION) WHICH ALSO FAILED AFTER JUST ONE WEEK. THEY SHIPPED & INSTALLED ANOTHER ONE & IT HAS BEEN DOING OKAY FOR 2 WKS NOW. FORUMS SIGHT MANY DRIVERS WITH SIMILAR SYMPTOMS & DANGEROUS INCIDENTS WHILE DRIVING & SAY THE 'NEW' CVTS FAIL AGAIN WHICH HAPPENED TO ME. NISSAN SHOULD BE FORCED TO RECALL THIS DEFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT'S DANGEROUS TO DRIVER SAFETY. NISSAN SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR COST OF THE RECALL AS OWNERS HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO REPLACE TRANSMISSIONS, A HUGE REPAIR. IT COST ME $3,600 AND I WILL RETAIN MY COPIES. THEY KNOW THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE TECHNOLOGY, NOT JUST IN THE ALTIMA. THEY DON'T HAVE AN ALERT ON NHTSA WEBSITE TO WARN CONSUMERS AGAINST BUYING THEIR UNSAFE VEHICLES. THIS REQUEST IS TO PREVENT FATALITIES NOT THAT AN ACCIDENT OCCURRED IN MY CASE.

THE SEAT MAY BREAK CAUSING THE BACK SUPPORT TO UNEXPECTEDLY RECLINE WHILE DRIVING AND CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. I FOUND THIS ONLINE WHILE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT "HOW TO REPAIR NISSAN" HTTPS://YOUTU.BE/IMSVBJQGVKW .. THE PROBLEM IS NOT UNIQUE TO ALTIMA'S BUT MURANO'S AS WELL. THE ROCKING TAKES PLACE WHILE SITTING AND DRIVING. VERY NOTICEABLE WHEN BREAKING AND ACCELERATING. ALSO THIS CAR IS DANGEROUS BECAUSE OF THE DEFECTIVE SEAT, SEAT FRAME.

A FEW MONTHS BACK I TOOK MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA, 4-CYLINDER TO THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP FOR A RECALL THAT WAS IN CONNECTION WITH RECALL WITH THE SOFTWARE OF THE TRANSMISSION OF SOME SORT. I DID NOT RECEIVE NOTICE BUT WAS ADVISED OF THIS RECALL WHEN I TOOK MY VEHICLE TO NISAAN TO GET SERVICES FOR AN OIL CHANGE. THE RECALL WAS COMPLETED. SINCE HAVING THE RECALL COMPLETE MY VEHICLE HAS BEEN HAVING TRANSMISSION ISSUES. AT TIMES I AM DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY AND THE CAR SHUDDERS AND LOSES POWER. I HAVE COME CLOSE TWICE TO AN AUTO COLLISION AS I AM SHIFTING LANES MY CAR COMPLETELY LOSES POWER AND DROPS SPEED WITHOUT MY CONTROL WITH HE RPM DROPPING DRASTICALLY BUT REGAINING WITHIN SECONDS. THE CAR JERKS AND SHUDDERS. I HAVE HAD ANOTHER FAMILY TEST AS WELL AND HAS SAID THAT THE CAR IS UNSAFE AND SOMETHING IS WRONG. I RESEARCHED AND SEE A MULTITUDE OF COMPLAINTS IDENTICAL TO MINE TO THIS PARTICULAR YEAR AND MODEL. I AM TAKING TO THE DEALER TO HAVE DIAGNOSTIC COMPLETE AND HAVE EXPLAINED THAT MY VEHICLE WAS FINE PRIOR TO THE SOFTWARE ADJUSTMENT WITH THE TRANSMISSION. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY ARE NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE ISSUES AND POSSIBLY I WILL GET STUCK WITH PAYING WHATEVER REPAIRS. THIS IS COMPLETELY UNFAIR TO THE CONSUMER HAVING TO PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR A TRANSMISSION DEFECT THAT THOUSANDS OF NISSAN OWNERS ARE HAVING THE ISSUES AND NOTHING SEEMS TO BE DONE TO REMEDY THIS UNSAFE VEHICLE. I WOULD LIKE INVESTIGATION TO BE DONE ON THIS AND IN THE EVENT THAT WHILE I AM DRIVING THIS VEHICLE AND THIS OCCURS CAUSING AN ACCIDENT I WILL HOLD THE MANUFACTURER AT FAULT FOR ALLOWING THIS VEHICLE TO GO UN-REPAIRED FOR A FAULTY TRANSMISSION THAT THOUSANDS OF CONSUMERS ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT AS BEING A "LEMON OF A CAR" AND "UNSAFE."

Summary

BOTH OF MY HEADLAMPS ARE DEFECTIVE AND NISSAN HAS RECOGNIZED THIS AS A MANUFACTURE'S DEFECT BUT HAS REFUSED TO ISSUE A RECALL. THEY ARE ONLY COVERING THE PARTS AND NOT LABOR. BY ACCEPTING TO PAY PART IS AN ADMISSION OF GUILT ON NISSAN'S PART. THE NISSAN DEALER'S MECHANIC (CORAL SPRINGS NISSAN 954-753-1700)HAS ADMITTED THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE IN THESE TYPE OF VEHICLES. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO SEE AT NIGHTS WITH THE HEADLAMPS AND CAN CAUSE A VEHICULAR ACCIDENT. AN INTERNET SEARCH WILL ALSO CONFIRM THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE.

Summary

TRANSMISSION "INTERNAL FAILURE" DETERMINED BY NISSAN MECHANIC ON 3 YEAR OLD ALTIMA AND NISSAN IS USING LOOPHOLE TO GET OUT OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT. I'M OVER ON MILES SO THEY WON'T PAY FOR IT. IT'S 3 YEARS OLD! THIS CAR STALLED ON HIGHWAY 30. I WAS TOTALLY FREAKED OUT. WHEN I TRIED TO GO IT ROLLED BACKWARDS AND ALMOST HIT THE CAR BEHIND ME. CARS WERE FLYING BY ME HONKING AND PEOPLE YELLING AT ME. THIS CAR IS THREE YEARS OLD! APPARENTLY THERE ARE MANY MORE LIKE IT OUT THERE AND NISSAN IS NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEM! THEY WANT $4196 TO REPLACE IT OR A NEW CAR FOR MORE PAYMENT, SALES TAX AND INSURANCE. I'M RACKING UP RENTAL CAR COSTS AND THEY WANT TO CHARGE ME $89 FOR DIAGNOSTICS WHEN I ALREADY HAD IT DONE AND TOLD THEM IT NEEDED A TRANSMISSION! THE NISSAN CONSUMER COMPLAINT LADY, THE SERVICE GUY, THE MECHANIC AND THE SALES GUY AT SUNTRUP NISSAN ALL AGREED THAT THIS TRANS MISSION SHOULD NOT HAVE GONE OUT AT 3 YEARS OLD. THEY HAVE EXTENDED THE WARRANTY ON SOME ALTIMA'S BUT NOT ON MINE! SUNTRUP NISSAN HAS MY CAR NOW. IT WILL NOT GO AT ALL. I ASKED FOR EITHER THEY PAY FOR THE TRANS OR PUT ME IN A NEW CAR AT SAME PAYMENT EVEN WITH HIGHER INSURANCE AND SALES TAX. THEY WON'T DO EITHER AND I HAVE TO PAY THE $89 DIAGNOSTICS. TERRIBLE FOR A REPEAT CUSTOMER. THIS IS MY 3RD NISSAN - 2 OF WHICH I BOUGHT FROM NISSAN SUNTRUP!

Summary

PRIOR TO TAKING MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA TO A NISSAN SERVICE CENTER FOR A SCHEDULED ROUTINE OIL & FILTER CHANGE, MY VEHICLE WAS RUNNING PERFECTLY. THE VERY NEXT DAY AFTER I HAD MY ROUTINE OIL & FILTER CHANGE ON MY VEHICLE, MY VEHICLE STARTED HESITATING IN FIRST GEAR AND IMMEDIATELY I TOOK MY VEHICLE BACK TO THE NISSAN SERVICE CENTER THE SAME DAY OF THE OCCURRENCE AND I EXPLAINED TO THE NISSAN SERVICE CENTER REPRESENTATIVE THAT MY VEHICLE STARTED HESITATING. (THE DAY AFTER I HAD A SCHEDULED ROUTINE OIL & FILTER CHANGE). WHEN THE NISSAN SERVICE CENTER DIAGNOSED MY VEHICLE I WAS TOLD MY CVT TRANSMISSION INDICATING A BAD INTERNAL SENSOR WITHIN THE TRANSMISSION AND I WOULD NEED TO PAY $3,800 DOLLARS TO REPAIR MY CVT TRANSMISSION. I EXPLAINED TO THE NISSAN SERVICE CENTER REP. MY VEHICLE WAS JUST AT THE NISSAN SERVICE CENTER YESTERDAY FOR A ROUTINE OIL & FILTER CHANGE AND THERE WAS NO WARNING LIGHTS OR WARNING SIGNS ON MY DASHBOARD THAT WOULD INDICATE A PROBLEM WITH MY TRANSMISSION. IN ADDITION TO MY VEHICLE HESITATING IN FIRST GEAR IT ALSO APPEARED NOT TO CHANGE GEARS WHILE I WAS DRIVING IN MOTION ON THE HIGHWAY. I TOLD THE NISSAN REP THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WANTED TO REPAIR MY VEHICLE WAS TO MUCH MONEY AND THE NISSAN REP STATED MY VEHICLE IS PASS THE WARRANTY LIMIT BECAUSE I HAVE 78,000 MILE AND MY LIMIT IS 60,000 MILES TO BE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. THE SERVICE REP STATED THEY CAN HAVE A SALES REP CONTACT ME TO PURCHASE A NEW CAR IF I DID NOT WANT TO PAY FOR THE TRANSMISSION REPAIR. AFTER REFUSING TO HAVE MY VEHICLE REPAIRED AT THAT PRICE I PICKED UP MY VEHICLE FROM THE NISSAN SERVICE CENTER AND DROVE MY VEHICLE HOME AND IT RAN FINE WITH NO WARNING LIGHTS OR ANY INDICATION OF ANY PROBLEMS. THE VEHICLE CHANGED GEARS AND DROVE PERFECTLY. I JUST WANT TO REPORT THIS ISSUE AND TO RED FLAG THIS PROBLEM WITH MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA. IF SOMEONE'S DEALING WITH THIS ISSUE PLEASE ADVISE.

Summary

NISSAN'S 2014 ALTIMA CVT TRANSMISSIONS ARE NOT SAFE AND SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF THE CARS. I BOUGHT MY CAR NEW IN FEBRUARY OF 2014. 1) MY FIRST TRANSMISSION DIED NOV 2016 AFTER ONLY 50K MILES. I WAS AT A RED LIGHT AND MY CAR WOULD NOT MOVE FORWARD, IT KEPT DYING AS SOON AS I TRIED TO ACCELERATE. THE CAR WAS STRANDED IN STREET UNTIL A TOW TRUCK CAME. 2) THE TRANSMISSION IT GOT REPLACED WITH DOES NOT DRIVE SMOOTHLY - IT JERKS, IT GOES TO HIGH RPM'S FOR NO REASON. WHEN I AM IN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC, IT SEEMS TO HAVE A MIND OF IT'S OWN: WHEN I AM BRAKING, I FEEL A PULL AS IF THE CAR DOES NOT WANT TO STOP. OR SOMETIMES THE ENGINE WILL FEEL LIKE IT'S REVVING HARDER THAN I NEED IT TO (UP TO 4-5K RPMS WHEN GOING UNDER 25MPH). 3) THIS TRANSMISSION HAS STALLED MULTIPLE TIMES AT A RED LIGHT. I WILL TRY TO ACCELERATE, AND IT WON'T MOVE. IT FINALLY BEGINS TO GO AFTER 3-5 SECONDS OF STALLING. IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL IT DIES COMPLETELY, AS MY PREVIOUS TRANSMISSION DID FOR THIS CAR. 4) I WAS CRUISING ON A SIDE STREET ONCE, GOING AROUND 40-45MPH, AND SUDDENLY THE RPM'S SHOOT UP TO 4-5 FOR NO REASON (USUALLY CRUISE BETWEEN 1-2). I PUT MY FOOT COMPLETELY OFF THE GAS, AND IT WOULD NOT STOP. IT FINALLY DID AFTER ABOUT 3-5 SECONDS. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE IN THIS CAR- ANYTIME I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION WAITING TO MAKE A LEFT TURN, I AM WONDERING IF MY CAR IS GOING TO DIE IN THE MIDDLE OF MY TURN, AND IF I AM GOING TO GET T-BONED. I'VE COMPLAINED TO MY DEALERSHIP MULTIPLE TIMES (TWO DIFFERENT DEALERSHIPS), AND THEY ALWAYS SAID NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH IT. SEARCH ONLINE AND YOU WILL SEE THE MANY COMPLAINS ABOUT NISSAN'S CVT TRANSMISSION. WITH ONLY 65K MILES ON A CAR I BOUGHT NEW, WE SHOULD NOT BE HAVING TO DEAL WITH SUCH A FAULTY TRANSMISSION. AND NISSAN WON'T DO ANYTHING UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE, EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW THEIR TRANSMISSIONS ARE FAULTY.

I REPLACED THE COMPRESSOR A YEAR AGO AND IT SEEMS TO BE FAILING AGAIN. AS A SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER I CAN SAFELY SAY THAT THERE IS DEFINITELY AN ISSUE WITH THEIR SOFTWARE. I HOPE THEY CAN FIX THIS SOON. THANKS, [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).?*JB

Summary

ON THREE SEPARATE OCCASIONS, THE CAR HAS LOST EXCELLERATION POWER. AFTER COMING TO A STOP, IT WOULD NOT PICK UP SPEED WHILE HOLDING THE GAS PEDAL TO THE FLOOR. AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT PICKED UP SPEED.

AFTER RESTARTING IT SEEMS TO DRIVE FINE, UNTIL IT HAPPENS AGAIN. HAPPENS WHILE DRIVING ON CITY STREETS.

Summary

I HAVE A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA THAT IS NEARING THE END OF THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY; I TOOK MY CAR IN LAST WEEK FOR VEHICLE RECALLS AND EXPLAINED TO THEM THE PROBLEMS THAT I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING WITH WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE THE CVT TRANSMISSION. I EXPLAINED HOW THE CAR WILL SHUDDER BETWEEN 10-25 MPH SPONTANEOUSLY AND THAT THERE WAS NO SUREFIRE WAY TO KNOW WHAT WAS CAUSING IT OR WHEN IT WOULD HAPPEN; I EXPLAINED THAT THERE HAVE BEEN A HANDFUL OF OCCASIONS WHERE I AM AT A STOP AND PRESS ON THE GAS PEDAL TO DRIVE AND THE CAR BARELY MOVES WHICH HAS ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT ON AT LEAST TWO SEPARATE OCCASIONS - ANOTHER INCIDENT THAT HAPPENS SPONTANEOUSLY; AND LASTLY, I EXPLAINED HOW THE RPM'S WILL REV AND THE TRANSMISSION WOULD STICK. THE FIRST DAY THAT NISSAN HAD MY CAR, THEY SAID IT ACTED UP, BUT THEY COULDN'T GET IT TO DO IT AGAIN AND NO CODES CAME BACK TO REVEAL THE PROBLEM. AFTER DAY 2, THEY SAID THERE WAS NOTHING MORE THEY COULD DO REGARDING THE ISSUES I COMPLAINED ABOUT. WHEN I WENT TO PICK UP MY CAR, THE SERVICE MANAGER JEFF THIBODEAUX SAID HE BELIEVES IT IS MY TRANSMISSION AND WANTED TO REPLACE IT,BUT HE COULDN'T BECAUSE THERE IS NO CODE COMING BACK TO SHOW THE PROBLEM AND THEY COULDN'T GET THE CAR TO ACT UP AGAIN. I EXPLAINED MY CONCERNS ABOUT DRIVING THIS CAR, THE SAFETY OF MY CHILDREN AND HOW THE WARRANTY WAS ABOUT TO EXPIRE IN LESS THAN 500 MILES; HE SAID THEY HAVE IT DOCUMENTED IN THE SYSTEM AND IF SOMETHING HAPPENS AFTER THE WARRANTY EXPIRES, THEY WOULD "GO TO BAT" FOR ME. I WENT A STEP FURTHER AND FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE CONSUMER AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT AT NISSAN (LAST FRIDAY). TODAY, I RECEIVED A CALL FROM AMANDA, THE CASE MANAGER FOR OUR REGION (CASE NUMBER 27815853). SHE WASN'T HELPFUL; INDICATED THAT UNLESS THE PART FAILS, THERE IS NOTHING THAT THEY CAN OR WILL DO. SHE TERMINATED THE CALL WHEN I TOLD HER I WAS RECORDING HER.

Summary

ONE DAY I WAS DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY WHEN MY CAR STARTED ACCELERATING ON ITS OWN, THEN SLOWING DOWN A LOT. AT ONE POINT I HAD TO PULL OVER ON THE SIDE OF THE FREEWAY BC THE CAR JUST WOULDN'T ACCELERATE EVEN WITH THE GAS PEDAL ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. WE STAYED THERE FOR A BIT WAITING FOR A TOW TRUCK. THE CAR DECIDED TO WORK AGAIN TO WE SPED OUT OF THERE AND MADE IT HOME. THE NEXT DAY I CONTACTED NISSAN AND TOLD THEM THE SITUATION AND THEY SAID THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE TRANSMISSION AND TO TAKE IT I. TO A DEALERSHIP TO THE CAN SO A THING THEY CALL CVT REPROGRAMMING. SO I DID THE NEXT DAY. THE TOW TRUCK CAME AND PICKED IT UP, TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP AND SUPPOSEDLY THEY FIXED IT. SO I WENT TO GO PICK UP THE CAR, AND AT FIRST IT WAS FINE, IT WAS JERKING JUST A LITTLE BUT I FIGURED IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE REPROGRAMMING, THE CAR WAS STILL ADJUSTING. THEN I GOT TO MY FIRST STOP LIGHT AND WHEN THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN THE CAR WOULD NOT GO ANYWHERE THEN IS STARTED GOI G REALLY REALLY SLOW AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN IT ACCELERATED SO FAST IT WAS SCARY. I MADE IT ABOUT 10 MINS OUT WHEN I DECIDED IT NEEDED TO GO BACK BC IT WAS DEFINITELY NOT FIXED. ON THE WAY BACK I ALMOST GOT IN A TERRIFYING ACCIDENT AND ALMOST DIDN'T EVEN MAKE IT. I WAS AT A STOP SIGN WAITING TO GO ONTO A 2 WAY STREET WITH NO OTHER STOP SIGHS. THE CAR WAS DOING JUST FINE SO I WENT FOR IT AND IN THE MIDDLE OF BOTH STREETS THE CAR SLOWED DOWN QUITE AGGRESSIVELY & THERE WERE 2 CARS HEADED TAPED ME ON FULL SPEED FROM OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. TERRIFYING. EVENTUALLY I MADE T BACK AND THE GUY HELPING ME WAS SO HELPFUL. GAVE ME A RENTAL AND EVERYTHING. THE NEXT DAY HE CALL AND SAYS I NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION AND IT WAS GOING TO BE $3600. SO I CONTACTED CONSUMER AFFAIRS TO SEE WHAT THEY CAN DO BC IT'S NOT FAIR THAT I HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR MISTAKE. AND NOW THEY WON'T CONTACT ME BACK AND I HAVE NO ODE WHATS GOING ON WITH MY CAR.

I AM VERY FORTUNATE THAT I WASN'T HIT BY ONCOMING TRAFFIC AS THE CAR WOULD NOT MOVE. I HAD MY DAUGHTER STEER THE CAR WHILE I PUSHED IT OUT OF THE WAY OF TRAFFIC.

ON 14 MARCH 2017, MY TRANSMISSION GAVE OUT WITHOUT WARNING WHILE I WAS TRAVELING ABOUT 50 MILES ON THE FREEWAY. I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE USED IN SEPTEMBER OF 2015 WITH ABOUT 30, 000 MILES ON IT. FROM DAY ONE, THE VEHICLE WOULD STALL AT VARIOUS TIMES BUT THE MECHANICS STATED NOTHING WAS WRONG AND NO WARMING WAS EVER ABLE TO BE FOUND. THE VEHICLE CAME TO A COMPLETE HALT THROWING ME FORWARD. I WAS ABLE TO MOVE IT TO SAFETY AND GET IT TOWED TO THE DEALER MATT BOWERS NISSAN LOCATED AT 13050 INTERSTATE 10 SERVICE RD. NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 70128. THE CONTACT NUMBER IS (504)245-5900. PRIOR TO ARRIVING, I LEARNED THE VEHICLE HAD A RECALL DEALING WITH THE TRANSMISSION BUT NOT SPECIFICALLY WITH IT STALLING AND GOING OUT. ACCORDING TO ONLINE AND THE DEALER, NISSAN RECALLED WHATS CALLED A CVT WHICH RESETS THE TRANSMISSION. EVERY LAST ONE OF THE SERVICE MEN AUTOMATICALLY KNEW THE ISSUE WHEN I TOLD THEM IT STOOPED ON THE FREEWAY. ONE GENTLEMAN EVEN STATED HE WOULDN'T EVEN PURCHASE ONE FOR HIS DAUGHTER OR HIS WIFE. I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE ASSUMING NISSAN NAME WAS STILL GOOD. THERE ARE REPORTS OF TRANSMISSION GOING OUT WITH 10, AND 30 THOUSAND MILES. MY HOOD ALSO POOPED OPEN WHILE ON THE FREE AND CRACKED MY WINDSHIED A FEW WEEKS AGO. I LEARNED TODAY THERE IS A RECALL ON THE HOOD. THE BACK DOOR CAME OPEN WHILE MY GRANDKIDS WERE IN THE BACK. IT TOOK ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO GET THE REAR DOOR TO CLOSE. THIS VEHICLE NEEDS TO BE RECALLED FOR THE TRANSMISSION. THEY ARE NO BETTER THAN TOYOTA BY KEEPING THIS INFORMATION FROM THE PUBLIC. MY VEHICLE HAS 127512 MILES AND SHOULD NOT BE HAVING TRANSMISSION ISSUES. I PUT ALMOST 400 K ON MY IMPALA AND THE TRANSMISSION WAS STILL GOOD. PLEASE MAKE NISSAN PAY AND RECALL THIS TRANSMISSION. OFTEN TIMES CONSUMERS FAIL TO REPORT ISSUES WHICH CAUSE GREAT HARM TO OTHERS. HOW MANY COMPLAINTS IS IN YOUR DATA REGARDING THIS? PLEASE HELP ME. SINGLE MOTHER

THE LIGHT INDICATING A PERSON IS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT DOES NOT OPERATE ALL THE TIME. THE DEALER HAS PROGRAMED IT TWICE. THE DEALER IS FRUSTRATED AS THEY HAVE SEVERAL OTHER CUSTOMERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. THE DEALER ASKED ME TO CONTACT NISSAN DIRECTLY WHICH I DID. I WAS TOLD TODAY BY A SPECIALISTS FROM NISSAN THAT I HAVE TO BRING THE VEHICLE IN WHEN IT IS DOING IT, I EXPLAINED IT IS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM AND I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO LEAVE THE VEHICLE WITH THE DEALER. SHE INFORMED ME THIS WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE THAT I HAVE TO BRING IT IN WHEN IT IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY. I GUESS SHE COULD NOT COMPREHEND THE FACT THAT IT IS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM, MOST LIKELY DUE TO A FAULTY T PASSENGER SIDE SENSOR IN THE SEAT. THE PASSENGER WEIGHTS IS AROUND 120 POUNDS SO SHE IS HEAVY ENOUGH FOR THE SENSOR TO PICKUP HER WEIGHT. I AM CONCERNED THAT THE AIR BAG MIGHT NOT DEPLOY DURING AN ACCIDENT. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN THE VEHICLE LIGHTS ACTS UP IS WHEN WE FIRST START OUT. THERE IS NO SET PATTERN TO CREATE THIS PROBLEM, MIGHT BE OK FOR A WEEK OR TWO THEN COULD DO IT TWO OR THREE DAYS IN A ROW AND MAYBE GO OUT BY IT SELF. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, MAYBE CLOSE TO A YEAR.

RECEIVED THE NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 16V244000 UPDATE FOR OCS ERROR ON PASSENGER AIRBAG. I HAD SUBMITTED A COMPLAINT REGARDING THIS AFTER NISSAN'S PREVIOUS UPDATE DID NOT FIX THE ISSUE. THIS ISSUE IS STILL NOT RESOLVED. AFTER 2 MONTHS OF USE I AM SEEING THAT WHEN MY WIFE IS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT THE AIRBAG LIGHT NOTIFYING ME THAT THERE IS NO PASSENGER IN THE PASSENGER SEAT STAYS ON STILL. I CAN 'RESET' BY TURNING THE VEHICLE OFF AND RESTARTING IT BUT CAN NOT BE POSITIVE THAT THE VEHICLE IS ACTUALLY 'SEEING' THE PASSENGER. THIS SEEMS TO BE A VERY BIG ISSUE WITH NISSAN AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IT RESOLVED. I HAVE NOT TALKED WITH THEM SINCE WHEN I DO THE ANSWER I'VE PREVIOUSLY GOTTEN IS "WE'VE COMPLETED THE UPDATE AND DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S NOT WORKING FOR YOU" BRING IT IN AND WE'LL LOOK - TO NO AVAIL. SO I PREFER NOT TO LET THEM PLAY AROUND SINCE RESETTING THE COMPUTER DOES NOTHING.

THE CAR STEERING WHEEL PUMP MAKES A WHINING NOISE WHICH CAN BE HEARD LOUD AND CLEAR. THE NOISE IS SO IRRITATING THAT IT CAN OUT ANYONE HAVE A VERTIGO. YET TWO NISSAN DEALERSHIPS SAY THIS IS NORMAL, AND REFUSE TO ACCEPT IT. SOME ALTIMAS HAVE THE NOISE ASND SOME DO NOT. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT NISSAN (THE COMPANY) AND NISSAN DEALERSHIPS ARE COLLUDING AND DON'T WANT TO MAKE THIS EXPENSIVE RECALL. THIS WILL MAY LEAD TO DRIVERS HAVING ACCIDENTS DUE TO THE HIGHLY ANNOYING NOISE

HOWEVER, THEY OFFERED EXTENDED WARRANTIES TO FEW CUSTOMERS AND NOT ALL OF US. THIS IS AN ONGOING COMPLAINT REGARDING THE CVT AND THE ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY CONSUMERS HAVE PAID...NOT TO MENTION THE INEVITABLE SAFETY RISK. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE AND NISSAN SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON MONDAY REGARDING THE RECALL...WHICH THEY DID NOT INFORM ME ABOUT UNTIL I CALLED ABOUT MY CAR 2 DAYS AGO. NOT TO MENTION ANOTHER RECALL FOR THE AIRBAG, THAT I FOUND OUT ABOUT ONLINE. THEY ARE NOT COMMUNICATING WITH THEIR CUSTOMERS AT ALL.

DURING DRIVING THE VEHICLE JERKS AS IF IT'S GOING TO CUT OFF. IT HAS ACTUALLY CUT OFF A FEW TIMES WHILE IN TRAFFIC. NISSAN EXTENDED THE WARRANTY OF SOME OF THE SAME VEHICLE, BUT NOT ALL...EVEN THOUGH IT'S A CONTINUOUS ISSUE. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO SALE CARS THAT THEY KNOW HAVE THESE PROBLEMS, LEAVING THE CONSUMER RESPONSIBLE FOR EXPENSIVE REPAIRS. MY VEHICLE HAS 71K MILES AND I UPKEEP WITH ALL MAINTENANCE. *TR

Summary

THE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE OF THE DRIVER'S DOOR ABRUPTLY STOPPED WORKING IN THE MORNING WHILE OUT RUNNING ERRANDS. I PULLED INTO A PARKING SPACE AND TURNED OFF THE VEHICLE THEN ATTEMPTED TO EXIT BUT THE DOOR HANDLE WOULD NOT OPEN THE CAR DOOR. I FEARED I WOULD BE TRAPPED INSIDE THE CAR. I MANAGED TO CLIMB OVER THE CONSOLE AND EXIT THROUGH THE FRONT PASSENGER DOOR. I HAVE SPOKEN TO A SERVICE TECH AT THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE AND HE INFORMED ME THIS HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER NISSAN VEHICLES AS WELL. HE FURTHER STATED IT WILL COST APPROXIMATELY $1,000 OUT OF MY OWN POCKET TO REPAIR THE HANDLE. THIS IS A PRODUCT LIABILITY ISSUE WHICH CLEARLY PRESENTS A SERIOUS SAFETY HAZARD.

Summary

PREVIOUS COMPLAINTS TO MY DEALER REGARDING MY CAR IS THE 'STUTTERING OR JUTTING' OF MY VEHICLE WHILE DRIVING - AT TIMES ALMOST VIOLENTLY. THE CVT TRANSMISSION HAD BEEN REPLACED ONCE WITHIN THE FIRST 6 MONTHS OF OWNERSHIP. ON DECEMBER 29, 2016 WHILE TRAVELING FROM MO TO IL, WHILE ON I-44 TRAVELING APPROXIMATELY 75 MPH UPHILL WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL SET THE CAR SUDDENLY LOST POWER TO THE TRANSMISSION WOULD BE THE BEST WAY I WOULD DESCRIBE IT. THE CAR SUDDENLY STARTED REVVING TO OVER 6,000 RPMS, THE GAS PEDAL WOULD NOT REACT, IT WAS IF THE CAR WAS IN NEUTRAL AND THE GAS PEDAL WAS REVVING THE ENGINE. THE LOSS OF ABILITY TO CONTROL THE CARS SPEED WHILE GOING UPHILL ON THE EXPRESSWAY PUT US IN SERIOUS DANGER. WE WERE ABLE TO GET OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. THE CAR WAS PUT INTO 'PARK' WE WAITED A COUPLE OF MINUTES BUT DUE TO OUR LOCATION ON THE EXPRESSWAY SHOULDER WE KNEW WE NEEDED TO GET INTO A BETTER SIGHT OF ONCOMING VEHICLES, IT SEEMED AS IF THEY DIDN'T SEE US UNTIL THEY WERE RIGHT NEAR US, MANY TRUCKS WERE UNABLE TO MOVE OVER ON SHORT NOTICE SO WHEN THEY PASTED US AT 70+ MILES THE ENTIRE CAR SHOOK. WHEN RESTARTING THE VEHICLE IT WOULD NOT ENGAGE INTO EITHER 'DRIVE' OR 'REVERSE'. ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE WAS CALLED, DUE TO HEAVY VOLUME THEY COULD NOT GET TO US FOR AT LEAST 1 1/2 HOURS, THEY DEEMED THE SITUATION DANGEROUS AND THE MISSOURI STATE HIGHWAY PATROL WAS CALLED. WHEN THEY ARRIVED APPROXIMATELY 1/2 HOUR LATER THE CAR WOULD GO INTO DRIVE, BUT WITH EXTREME JERKING AND CONSTANT REVVING OF THE ENGINE. SINCE THE CAR MOVED THEY ESCORTED US THE 1 1/2 MILE TO THE NEAREST EXIT OFF THE EXPRESSWAY, WHILE TRAVELING DOWNHILL, JUST COASTING THE CAR WOULD CONSTANTLY JERK AND THE ENGINE WAS REVVING. THE CAR WAS TOWED BACK THE 200 MILES TO OUR DEALERSHIP. THE CAR EXPERIENCED 'TRANSMISSION FAILURE' AND IS CURRENTLY HAVING THE TRANSMISSION REPLACED AGAIN. *TR

HAVING ISSUES WITH THE CVT TRANSMISSION IN MY 2014 ALTIMA, THE SYMPTOMS ARE WHILE SITTING AT A STOP AND ENGINE IDLING AT A NORMAL RPM IN DRIVE THE CAR WILL AT RANDOM BEGIN TO LURCH FORWARD RPMS WILL FLUCTUATE AND AT TIMES ENGINE WILL DIE. AFTER THE ENGINE DIES AT TIMES RESTART IS DIFFICULT AND MAY TAKE TWO OF THREE ATTEMPTS BEFORE THE CAR (ENGINE/TRANSMISSION) WILL FUNCTION PROPERLY. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALERSHIP HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY CANNOT REPRODUCE THE ISSUE AND THEREFORE (THIS IS MY OPINION) THERE IS NO PROBLEM. WITH ONLY 10,000 MILES LEFT ON MY POWERTRAIN WARRANTY, I FEEL THAT NISSAN HAS PUT ME BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE, IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST NISSAN. *TR

ENGINE SHOULD'VE SHUT OFF OR GIVE WARNING SIGN THAT OIL FROM THE OIL FILLER CAME OUT ANDSPLATTERED ALL OVER ENGINE CAUSING A ENGINE FIRE WHICH COULD'VE INJURED OR KILLED SOMEONE THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE SOMEONE MUST'VE LEFT THE OIL FILLER CAP OFF OR DIDN'T TIGHTEN CAP,ALL MECHANICS TOLD ME THE CAR SHOULD'VE SHUT OFF OR WARNING LIGHT SHOULD'VE CAME ON. ALSO THE LOCATION OF OIL FILLER IS IN A BAD SPOT IT'S ON THE MIDDLE OF THE ENGINE WITH LOTS OF PLASTIC COVERS OVER ENGINE,MOST ENGINES THE OIL FILLER IS ON SIDE OF ENGINE SO OIL DOESN'T SPILL ON TOP OF ENGINE .THE ENGINE IS A 2.5 LITER ENGINE .THE ENGINE RUNS VERY HOT AND WITH ALL THE PLASTIC PARTS AND ANY OIL SPILLING IT CAN EASILY CATCH FIRE .I THINK NISSAN SHOULD INSTALL A OIL FILLER CAP SENSOR TO AVOID POTENTIAL ENGINE FIRES.CAR IS BEING REPAIRED NOW FROM INSURANCE CLAIM BUT NISSAN REFUSED TO REIMBURSE ANY FINCANCIAL OFFER OR A REPLACEMENT CAR,SINCE I BROUGHT THE CAR BRAND NEW 6 MONTHS AGO .I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD INVESTIGATE THIS,A SIMPLE FIX LIKE A OIL CAP SENSOR COULD PREVENT FIRES AND SAVE LIVES

CVT TRANSMISSION. I WAS AT THE INTERSECTION OF PAGE AVE AND SEVEN UP DRIVE IN OVERLAND, MO, AND MY CAR STOPPED. I STARTED THE CAR BACK UP AND PARK THE CAR IN DRIVE AND IT ROLLED BACKWARDS. I PUT THE CAR BACK IN PARK, PUT ON MY HAZARD LIGHTS, AND CALLED ROADSIDE SERVICE. MY DAUGHTER (7YRS) AND I WERE TERRIFIED. CARS WERE A FEW 100 FEET FROM HITTING US. I WAS CONSTANTLY WAVING CARS TO GO AROUND MY CAR. THE OVERLAND POLICE FINALLY ARRIVED (1 HOUR LATER) AND PUSHED MY CAR TO A SAFER LOCATION SO IT COULD BE TOWED. MY CAR WAS LATER TOWED TO THE NISSAN DEALER WHERE IT WAS DIAGNOSED. THE DIAGNOSIS WAS THAT MY CVT (TRANSMISSION) NEEDED TO BE REPLACED.

Summary

MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA DRIVERS SIDE AIRBAG LIGHT HAS COME ON FOR THE FOURTH TIME SINCE NEW. (TODAYS DATE 09/26/2016) THE FIRST TWO TIMES, NISSAN RESET IT AND CONVENIENTLY DIDN'T MAKE A RECORD OF IT IN THE REPAIR HISTORY WHILE IT WAS IN WARRANTY. I TOOK IT IN A FEW WEEKS AGO BECAUSE THE LIGHT WAS ON AGAIN, THEY SAID IT WAS A LOOSE CONNECTION UNDER THE SEAT CAUSED BY A BOX OF KLEENEX, WHICH I THINK IS NOT TRUE. LAST WEEK THE LIGHT CAME BACK ON AGAIN WITH NOTHING UNDER THE SEAT. THIS TIME, THEY SAID I NEED A NEW AIRBAG AT A COST OF $1100, CLAIMING I NEVER BROUGHT IT IN FOR THE DRIVERS SIDE AND THAT I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT BECAUSE MY CAR NOW HAS 70K MILES ON IT, NEVER-MIND IT IS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. MY MAIN CONCERN IS THAT THIS CLEAR AND OBVIOUS DEFECT CAUSES A SIGNIFICANT RISK TO THE OCCUPANTS BECAUSE IT PREVENTS ANY OF THE AIRBAGS FROM DEPLOYING IN AN ACCIDENT. I CANNOT AFFORD TO SPEND OVER $1000 ON A PART THAT SHOULD NEVER GO BAD ON A CAR THAT IS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. FYI: THE VEHICLE WAS IN MOTION WHEN THE AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON EVERY TIME AND EVERY TIME IT CAME ON THERE WAS NOBODY IN THE BACK SEAT, NOR WAS THE SEAT BEING ADJUSTED OR WAS ANYTHING INTERFERING WITH THE PLUG, AS NISSAN TRIES TO CLAIM.

RANDOMLY THIS OCCURS, WHEN SITTING IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT THE AIR BAG SIGN FOR THAT SEAT WILL SAY OFF. ON OUR LAST TRIP WE LEFT A STOP AND ENTERED THE HIGHWAY BUT THE LIGHT STAYED ON INDICATING THE AIR BAG WAS NOT ACTIVATED. WE HAD TO DRIVE LIKE THAT UNTIL WE COULD SAFELY STOP. WE THEN TURNED OFF THE IGNITION AND STARTED THE CAR AGAIN, AND THIS TIME THE AIR BAG OFF LIGHT DID NOT STAY LIT. WE HAVE HAD THE VEHICLE AT THE DEALER 6 TIMES FOR THIS PROBLEM. BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM WHEN THE CAR IS THERE THE ONLY THING THEY SAY THEY CAN DO IS A ZERO POINT RESET ON OCS SYSTEM. THAT HAS NOT STOPPED THIS ISSUE FROM REOCCURRING. WE HAVE PHONED BERGSTROM OF OSHKOSH 5 DAYS THIS WEEK, THEY DO NOT RETURN OUR CALL. THE LAST DIAGNOSIS STATES ELECTRICAL, HOWEVER, TONY THE SERVICE ADVISOR TOLD US THE LAST TIME WE WERE THEIR THAT THEY DON'T WANT TO THROW MONEY AT THE CAR IT COULD BE A SENSOR, ELECTRICAL, THE AIR BAG SYSTEM OR THE SEAT. BECAUSE THEY CANNOT REPLICATE THE PROBLEM WHEN WE ARE THERE THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO FIX, SO CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING. THE RECALL ON THE CAR WAS DONE 5/26/16. HOWEVER WE CONTINUE TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM. THE SERVICE ADVISOR HAS REPEATEDLY SAID IT IS BECAUSE THE PASSENGER IS NOT SITTING ON THE SEAT CORRECTLY, HOWEVER THE LAST TIME IT OCCURRED THE PASSENGER WAS SITTING IN THE SAME POSITION WHEN THE AIR BAG WAS OFF AS SHE WAS WHEN THE IGNITION WAS TURNED OFF AND RESTARTED CORRECTING THE PROBLEM. OUR WARRANTY WILL RUN OUT SOON. WE PHONED NISSAN AND THEY WILL ONLY GO BY WHAT THERE AUTO TECH AT BERGSTROM TELLS THEM, SO NO HELP THERE EITHER. I HAVE COPIES OF INVOICES FROM WHEN THE CAR WAS TAKEN IN FOR THIS PROBLEM.

I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE BRAND NEW FROM THE DEALERSHIP ON 12/31/13. THIS VEHICLE IS 2 YEARS OLD AND HAS APPROXIMATELY 75,000 MILES ON IT. IT HAS HAD A MINIMUM OF 2 RECALLS ON IT SINCE I HAD IT. I WOULD DRIVE THE CAR NEARLY ALL DAY (NO MORE THAN 50 MILES PER DAY) AND SUDDENLY ONCE I APPROACHED A STOP SIGN AT A VERY BUSY INTERSECTION AND WAS ABOUT TO CROSS IT, THE CAR ENGINE SHUT DOWN. I COULD HEAR THE RADIO. NOTE: MY TODDLER CHILD WAS WITH ME. I ATTEMPTED TO START THE VEHICLE SEVERAL TIMES BUT AS SOON AS I PUT IT IN THE DRIVE GEAR, IT WOULD SHUT OFF AGAIN. I HAD TO SIT TO THE STOP SIGN WITH TRAFFIC APPROACHING FOR NEARLY 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE CAR WOULD ALLOW ME TO START AND PUT IT IN GEAR TO DRIVE IT HOME. WHEN I TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR A DIAGNOSTIC TEST, THEY COULD NOT GIVE ME A FULL DIAGNOSIS AS THEY STATED THAT THE VEHICLE HAD TO BE COOLED. I HAD NO WAY HOME AS I LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE DEALERSHIP'S SHUTTLE RADIUS AND WAS OFFERED A RENTAL CAR BUT I HAD TO PAY FOR IT. I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TRUST THAT I WOULD MAKE IT BACK HOME WITH IT. I DID MAKE IT HOME BUT IT SHUT OFF IN THE YARD. I HAD IT TOWED A FEW DAYS LATER TO THE DEALERSHIP FOR FURTHER TESTING AND IT WAS REVEALED TO ME THAT THE TRANSMISSION HAD TO BE REPLACED. I AM BOTHERED BY THIS BECAUSE THIS IS A BRAND NEW VEHICLE WITH LESS THAN 100,000 MILES AND IS 2 YEARS OLD. ALSO, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A SAFETY HAZARD FOR ME AND MY CHILD AS IT COULD HAVE SHUT DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION IN WHICH WE WERE CROSSING.

THERE WAS RECALL ON THIS VEHICLE NHTSA RECALL 16V-244. IT WAS ABOUT THE OCS. VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO CREST NISSAN OF FRISCO 6600 STATE HWY 121, FRISCO, TX 75034 ON 14 JUNE 2016. ACCORDING TO THE INVOICE GIVEN TO ME BY THE DEALER THE OCS UNIT WAS REPROGRAMMED. ON 9 AUG 16 I TOOK THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE SAME DEALER BECAUSE THE SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT REMAINS ON CONTINUOUSLY. BUT THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENT AT CREST NISSAN OF FRISCO TOLD ME THAT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT, THIS LIGHT IS SUPPOSED TO STAY ON UNLESS THE PASSENGER SEAT IS OCCUPIED BY AN ADULT . OWNER'S MANUAL ON PAGE 1-57 CLEARLY MENTIONS THAT " IF THE SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT REMAINS ON AFTER APPROXIMATELY 7 SECONDS, UNDER THIS CONDITION, THE FRONT AIR BAG, SIDE AIR BAG AND CURTAIN AIR BAG OR PRETENSIONER SYSTEMS MAY NOT OPERATE PROPERLY". THE DEALER HAS NOT ONLY FAILED TO RECTIFY THE PROBLEM BUT ALSO LIED TO ME ABOUT THIS TECHNICAL AND A POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS PROBLEM. IT COULD MEAN THAT THE FRONT AIR BAG, SIDE AIR BAG, CURTAIN AIR BAG AND/OR PRETENSIONER SYSTEMS WILL NOT OPERATE IN AN ACCIDENT.

I RAN LOW ON WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID AND A LIGHT CAN ON NOTIFYING ME. THE NEXT DAY I NOTICED THAT THE LANE DETECTION SYSTEM AND THE CAR IN YOUR BLIND SPOT INDICATOR WAS NO WORKING. CAUSING A SAFETY CONCERN. COME TO FIND OUT. WHEN YOU RUN LOW ON WIPER FLUID, IT DEACTIVATES THESE SAFETY FEATURES. I THINK THIS IS CRAZY AND DANGEROUS. PUT IN WIPER FLUID AND IT CORRECTED THE PROBLEM. WOW!!!

SINCE I HAVE HAD MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA IT HAS FACED SEVERAL MAJOR ISSUES SUCH HAS TWO TRANSMISSIONS REPLACEMENTS, NOW THE AC COMPRESSOR, THEN THE CAR DISPLAY SCREEN TURNED COMPLETELY PINK, AND OTHER NUMEROUS ISSUES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN DOCUMENTED IN YOUR SYSTEM. PLEASE REFER BACK TO MY PREVIOUS COMPLAINTS THAT I HAVE SUBMITTED, MY SERVICE RECORDS FOR THE DEALERSHIP, AND SO FORTH FOR DOCUMENTATION PURPOSES. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT A CAR WITH ONLY 7 MILES ON IT WHEN PURCHASED SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY OF THESES ISSUES UNLESS IT WAS MANUFACTURED POORLY. I AM SO FED UP WITH DEALING WITH THE DEALERSHIP AND RUN AROUNDS FROM THE CORPORATION THAT I MAY HAVE TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION IF THIS ISSUE IS NOT RESOLVED IN A TIMELY MANNER.

I BROUGHT MY CAR TO ROYAL PALM NISSAN FOR A RECALL ON THE HOOD LATCH AND TOLD THEM TO CHECK THE OCS LIGHT THAT WENT ON INTERMITTENTLY EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS A PASSENGER SEATED. THIS WAS BEFORE THE RECALL NOTICE. I RECEIVED THE OCS RECALL AND WENT TO CORAL 'SPRINGS NISSAN. I RETURNED A WEEK LATER BECAUSE THE LIGHT REMAINED ON FOR 17 MINUTES A FEW DAYS LATER WHILE DRIVING WITH AN ADULT PASSENGER. I WAS TOLD IT COULD NOT BE CHECKED BECAUSE THE LIGHT WAS NOT ON THEN. IF THE LIGHT GOES ON INTERMITTENTLY, THEN MY PASSENGER IS NOT SAFE IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT AS THE AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY. WHAT CAN BE DONE?

Summary

I AM CONTACTING YOU OVER REPEATED ISSUES WITH MY 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA SL. THIS IS MY SECOND COMPLAINT FILED TO NHTSA FOR THIS VEHICLE'S AIRBAG. AS YOU ARE AWARE, A RECALL WAS ISSUED AND HAS BEEN PERFORMED ON MY VEHICLE. MY ISSUE IS THAT THE PASSENGER SEAT WON'T ARM THE AIRBAG IF MY WIFE SITS IN THE SEAT. I HAVE MULTIPLE VIDEOS OF THIS ISSUE. MY MOST RECENT VISIT TO MY NISSAN DEALER RESULTED IN THEM STATING THEY COULDN'T FIX ANYTHING AS THEY COULDN'T PULL AN ERROR CODE. THE VERY NEXT DAY, THE ISSUE HAPPENED AGAIN WITH MY WIFE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT AND AGAIN I RECORDED IT. I OPENED A COMPLAINT WITH NISSAN CORPORATE. AFTER A FRUSTRATING PHONE CALL THIS EVENING, AND A LOT OF AMBITIOUS DOUBLE TALK ON NISSAN'S PART, THE NISSAN REPRESENTATIVE SAID THAT THE ISSUE WAS THAT MY WIFE WAS TOO LITE. MY WIFE WEIGHS BETWEEN 103 AND 108 POUNDS AS SHE FLUCTUATES A BIT. SHE STANDS 5 FOOT 3 INCHES TALL. THE NISSAN REPRESENTATIVE, DELISA SAID THAT NISSAN DOESN'T RECOMMEND ANYONE UNDER 4 FEET 9 INCHES OR LESS THAN 120 LBS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. THIS WAS NEVER TOLD TO ME TWO YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS LOOKING AT PURCHASING THE CAR, OR THROUGH ANY OF THE 6-8 SERVICE TICKETS I HAVE OPENED REGARDING THIS ISSUE WITH MULTIPLE DIFFERENT FIXES ATTEMPTED. ( I CAN GET THE EXACT NUMBER AS SOON AS MY DEALER PROVIDES THE REQUESTED INFORMATION.) I WOULD HAVE NEVER BOUGHT THE CAR KNOWING MY WIFE COULDN'T RIDE IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. I ASKED FOR THIS IN WRITING FROM THE NISSAN REPRESENTATIVE BUT SHE SAID SHE COULD NOT PROVIDE THAT. SHE SAID IT WAS ONLY FOR THEIR INTERNAL RECORDS. I PRESSED HER ON THE FACT THAT THEY WERE SAYING MY WIFE COULDN'T SIT IN THE FRONT SEAT. HER REPLY WAS THAT SHE DIDN'T SAY THAT, ONLY THAT NISSAN DOESN'T RECOMMEND SOMEONE LESS THAN 120 POUNDS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE CONTACTED BY THE NHTSA TO CLARIFY WHAT NISSAN IS SAYING AND IF IT IS ACCURATE?

Summary

"PASSENGER AIR BAGS OFF" LIGHT IS "ON" WHILE DRIVING, AT ANY SPEED, WITH AN ADULT IN FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. THE PROBLEM FIRST OCCURRED WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS LESS THAT A WEEK OLD. IT CONTINUES TO OCCUR ABOUT ONCE A MONTH. I HAVE HAD THE CAR AT THE DEALER MANY TIMES. THE PROBLEM CANNOT BE DUPLICATED AT THE DEALER, THEREFORE NO REPAIRS HAVE BEEN MADE. ON JUNE 15, 2016 THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER IN RESPONSE TO RECALL #16V244000. NO HELP! THE PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED TWICE SINCE THEN. THE PROBLEM: ALWAYS OCCURS DURING AN ENGINE START. NEVER WHILE DRIVING. IT SEEMS TO BE PART OF THE INITIALIZATION PROCESS. MAY CORRECT ITSELF AT ANY TIME. IT MAY LAST FOR A HALF A MILE OR 50 MILES. CANNOT BE CORRECTED BY THE PASSENGER STANDING OR BOUNCING CAN ALWAYS BE CORRECTED BY PULLING OFF THE ROAD AND STOPPING THEN RESTARTING THE ENGINE. I HAVE A LOTS OF CELL PHONE PHOTOS SHOWING VEHICLE SPEED, "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF" INDICATION AND AN ADULT PASSENGER IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. THESE PHOTOS ARE DATED.

SINCE PURCHASING THIS CAR IN EARLY 2015 I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE FOLLOWING: OCCASIONALLY THE CAR ALARM WILL SOUND / LIGHTS WILL FLASH EITHER BY MANUALLY PRESSING THE BUTTON ON THE DRIVERS DOOR, PASSENGERS DOOR OR THE TRUNK LID (WITH KEY FOB IN POCKET OR IN HAND) THIS ISSUE ALSO OCCURS USING EITHER ONE OF MY FACTORY KEY FOBS UNLOCK BUTTONS (BOTH WITH NEW BATTERIES INSTALLED BY THE DEALER). BY PRESSING THE FOBS UNLOCK BUTTON AGAIN OR PRESSING THE DOOR BUTTON AGAIN A SECOND TIME, THE ALARM TURNS OFF AND THE DOOR UNLOCKS. I HAVE HAD THIS IN TO THE DEALER FOUR TIMES IN THE LAST YEAR BUT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM. I AM TOLD EACH TIME THAT NISSAN WILL NOT AUTHORIZE SERVICE UNLESS THEY SEE IT HAPPEN OR SOME CODE IS STORED. WHY WON'T NISSAN UPPER LEVEL TECHNICIANS BECOME INVOLVED WITH THESE KINDS OF PROBLEMS?

I HAVE HAD MANY ISSUES WHILE DRIVING ON A STREET, HIGHWAY, AND AT A STOP. ALL THE ISSUES SEEMS TO POINT TO EITHER SOFTWARE OR ELECTRICAL ISSUES. I HAVE COMPLAINED TO THE DEALERSHIP ON MANY OCCASIONS. I BOUGHT MY CAR WITH ONLY APPROX. 7-10 MILES ON IT IN JAN. 2014. SINCE THE BEGINNING, I HAVE HAD MY ENTIRE DASHBOARD SHUT OFF W/O WARNING. NAVIGATION, RADIO, CAMERA, ETC. COMPLETELY SHUTS OFF, AIR BAGS LIGHTS TURNING OFF AND ON, THE AIR CONDITIONER INTERMITTINGLY WORKING WHENEVER IT CHOOSES, THE CIGARETTE LIGHTERS (BOTH) THAT I USE TO CHARGE MY PHONE NO LONGER WORKS, AND ACCELERATION NOT ACCELERATING PROPERLY (TRANSMISSION ISSUE?). I HAVE NOT EVER HAD SO MANY CAR PROBLEMS, ESPECIALLY WITH A NEW CAR. WHEN I ASK THE DEALERSHIP ABOUT RECALLS, THEY ARE ONLY CONCERNED WITH REPAIR COSTS THEY WANT TO COLLECT, IN WHICH I UNDERSTAND. HOWEVER, WHAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND IS LOOKING UP THE ISSUE ONLINE AND SEEING HUNDREDS OF THE SAME COMPLAINTS. JUST WITH THE SAME AIR CONDITIONER ISSUE ALONE, ON ONLY ONE SITE, THERE WERE ALMOST 600 CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS. I WAS ASTOUNDED. I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE ARE NOT MORE RECALLS WITH WHAT I HAVE READ. BESIDES SERIOUS BODILY INJURIES OR DEATH, DO NISSAN OWNERS NEED TO GET THE MEDIA INVOLVED TO GET SOMETHING DONE. LOCALLY, THERE IS A TV STATION THAT DEDICATES A SEGMENT TO CONSUMER REVIEWS AND COMPLAINTS. IT'S CERTAINLY A CONSIDERATION AT THIS POINT.

TWO COMPLAINTS: ONE: THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL INTERMITTENTLY AND RANDOMLY COMES ON WHILE DRIVING. WHEN TAKEN TO THE DEALER, THEY SAID THE PLUG UNDER THE DRIVERS SEAT WAS LOOSE. THEY "FIXED IT". THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED 3 TIMES SINCE I BOUGHT THE CAR NEW AND IS CURRENTLY DOING IT AGAIN, BUT IT IS NOW OUT OF WARRANTY BECAUSE OF MILEAGE AND THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE ME TO FIX A PROBLEM THAT SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN, YET HAS REOCCURRED REGULARLY SINCE NEW. TWO: WHEN DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL AND NEAR A COMPLETE STOP, THE PEDAL BECOMES "SOFT" FOR ABOUT A HALF SECOND, THE CAR STOPS DECELERATING FOR THAT HALF SECOND THEN CONTINUES TO STOP NORMALLY, THEREAFTER. EACH TIME I MENTION THIS AT A SERVICE INTERVAL AT THE DEALER, THEY SAY THEY WILL LOOK INTO IT. NOTHING IS NOTED ON MY INVOICE AND NOTHING IS MENTIONED WHEN THE CAR IS PICKED UP. IT IS UNSETTLING AND IT CAUSES THE CAR TO STOP SEVERAL FEET FURTHER THAN IF THIS DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Summary

I EXPERIENCED A GRINDING, SHAKING NOISE AT 2.0 RPM. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN IN FOR SERVICE AND I WAS INFORMED THAT THE TRANSMISSION HAD TO BE REPLACED. THE TRANSMISSION WAS REPLACED AND THAT WAS WHEN ALL OF MY TROUBLES BEGAN. THE VEHICLE WOULD HESITATE AND JERK WHILE DRIVING AT LOW SPEEDS. THERE WAS NOW A VIBRATION AT 1.5 RPM. I TOOK THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS ADVISED THAT A BELT WAS LOOSE. THE VEHICLE WAS RETURNED TO ME AND IT STILL WAS NOT DRIVING SMOOTHLY AND NOW THE ENTIRE GEAR CONSOLE WAS LOOSE. THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT MOVE FROM EITHER DRIVE OR REVERSE UPON STARTING, EVEN WHEN THE GEAR SHIFT WAS MOVED. IT WOULD TAKE TWO TRIES EACH TIME TO GET THE CAR TO MOVE FROM PARK. THE VEHICLE WENT BACK INTO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE THE GEAR CONSOLE WAS ADJUSTED. HOWEVER, THE DEALERSHIP COULD NOT REPLICATE THE ISSUE - VEHICLE NOT MOVING WHEN GEAR PLACED IN REVERSE OR DRIVE. THIS WEEKEND (4/30/16) I DROVE THE VEHICLE IN VIRGINIA AND HAD TO NAVIGATE SEVERAL HIGH ELEVATIONS WHILE ON THE I-81 HIGHWAY. THE CAR WAS SLUGGISH AT BEST, DRAGGING AND THE GEARS WOULD NOT CHANGE. THE CAR WAS RACING LOUDLY TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE SPEED, RPM WAS UP AT 3.5 AND THE CAR WAS AT 50 MLES; SPEED LIMIT WAS 70. ONCE I CLEARED THE HILL THE RPMS LEVELED OUT TO 1.5 AND THE CAR HELD THE 70 MPH SPEED. NOTE THE VEHICLE WAS NOT PERFORMING THIS WAY BEFORE THE "NEW TRANSMISSION" WAS INSTALLED. I DID HAVE THE GRINDING AND RACING NOISE AT 2.0 RPM, BUT NO HESITATION, JERKING OR ANY DIFFICULTIES IN HIGHER ELEVATIONS. THAT LEADS ME TO CONCLUDE THAT THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE WRONG WITH THIS VEHICLE OTHER THAN THE TRANSMISSION. I HAVE ALSO LODGED A COMPLAINT WITH NISSAN CONSUMER AFFAIRS WHOM I AM AWAITING A RESPONSE FROM ON MY COMPLAINT. THE VEHICLE NOW HAS 18,694 MILES AND WAS PURCHASED IN AUGUST OF 2014.

Summary

HAD RANDOM PASSENGER AIRBAG REMAIN ON WHEN PASSENGER WAS SITTING IN SEAT - MET ALL WEIGHT REQUIREMENTS. THIS NEVER HAPPENED CONTINUALLY BUT WAS PROBLEMATIC ENOUGH TO BRING IN TO DEALER. THEY COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG. BROUGHT IN SEVERAL TIMES, STILL NO FIX. NISSAN RECALLED THIS PROBLEM IN APRIL 2015, HAD FIX DONE TO VEHICLE. WITHIN A WEEK AIRBAG LIGHT STAYED ON WITH PASSENGER IN SEAT. THIS ISSUE CONTINUES YET TALKING WITH NISSAN THEY BELIEVE THAT SINCE THE DEALER CAN'T FIND ANY ERROR CODES SHOWING WHAT THE PROBLEM IS THEY WILL NOT FIX IT. NISSAN WILL NOT PUT THIS UNDER NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 15V681000 AS IT DOES NOT FIT THEIR CRITERIA. I BELIEVE ANY PASSENGER SITTING IN THAT SEAT IS NOT SAFE. VEHICLE IS RUNNING PASSENGER COMES IN AND SITS IN SEAT, PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT STAYS ON. PASSENGER IS 160#. IF I TURN VEHICLE OFF AND RESTART THE AIRBAG LIGHT USUALLY DOES STAY OFF. BUT NOT SURE OF THE SAFETY AT THAT POINT - IS AIRBAG REALLY ON? THIS IS CONTINUAL SINCE BUYING THE VEHICLE IN 2013, FIX IN SPRING OF 2015 DID NOT FIX OCS FOR MY VEHICLE.

Summary

MY CAR HAS APPROXIMATELY 27,500 MILES. ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO I BEGAN HAVING A HARD TIME KEEPING THE CAR IN MY LANE OF TRAFFIC. THE CAR WAS PULLING HARD TO THE LEFT, REQUIRING ME TO STEER TO THE RIGHT (APPROXIMATELY TO A 1 O'CLOCK POSITION). I BELIEVED THIS TO BE AN ALIGNMENT ISSUE AND HAD A LARGE CHAIN REPAIR SHOP COMPLETE AN ALIGNMENT. THE STEERING ISSUE WAS NOT RESOLVED. I THEN TOOK THE CAR TO MY DEALERSHIP AND THEY ADVISED THAT IT WAS OUT OF ALIGNMENT AND THEY HAD FIXED THE ISSUES WITH AN ALIGNMENT (I HAVE NOT PAID $250 IN ALIGNMENT CHARGES). AFTER A FEW DAYS OF DRIVING IT, THE CAR IS STILL PULLING TO THE LEFT. I HAVE TRIED DRIVING IN ALL LANES OF TRAFFIC AND BEEN SENSITIVE TO THE GRADE OF THE ROAD...HOWEVER, MY CAR WILL PULL TO THE LEFT IN ANY SITUATION. IN MOST CASES, IT TAKES QUITE A BIT OF PRESSURE STEERING TO THE RIGHT, TO KEEP THE CAR DRIVING STRAIGHT-AHEAD. WHEN I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP TO ADVISE THEM THE REPAIR WAS NOT CORRECT, THEY SAID THEY HAD TWO TECHS DRIVE IT AND IT WAS FINE - I WOULD NEED TO RETURN TO THE DEALERSHIP AND DRIVE THE CAR WITH THEM TO DIAGNOSE. I DON'T FEEL THAT I SHOULD HAVE TO SPEND ADDITIONAL TIME WITH THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT TO FIND A REPAIR FOR MY VEHICLE. I MADE A REPORT WITH NISSAN CUSTOMER AFFAIRS. IN MY EXPERIENCE WITH NISSAN, THESE ARE THE STEPS THAT ARE NEEDED TO GET A SOLUTION TO ANY SAFETY ISSUES.

Summary

I PURCHASED A USED 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA THE END OF APRIL 2015 FROM ENTERPRISE CAR SALES. I WAS TOLD THEY DID SUCH A THOROUGH INSPECTION OF ALL OF THEIR VEHICLES THAT THE CAR WAS IN GREAT CONDITION. IN OCTOBER 2015, WITH APPROXIMATELY, 61,000 MILES ON THE NISSAN, IT STARTED RANDOMLY HESITATING. I WOULD PUSH THE GAS PEDAL BUT THE CAR WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. I TOOK IT TO THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP AND THEY COULD NOT FIND A PROBLEM. A FEW DAYS LATER, I WAS PULLING OUT FROM AN INTERSECTION AND I PRESSED THE GAS PEDAL AND THE CAR WOULD NOT MOVE!! I BARELY MADE IT HOME. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD IT NEEDED A NEW TRANSMISSION, $3400 AND THAT THE POWER TRAIN WARRANTY HAD JUST EXPIRED AT 60,000 MILES. I CALLED NISSAN NORTH AMERICA CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND FILED A CLAIM TO SEE IF THEY WOULD COVER A NEW TRANSMISSION. AFTER ABOUT 5 OR 6 DAYS, I RECEIVED A CALL BACK AND WAS TOLD NO, THEY WOULD NOT COVER OR HELP PAY FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION. I ASKED IF THEY WERE AWARE OF ALL OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THESE CVT TRANSMISSIONS, THE REP SAID THEY HAD PROBLEMS ON PREVIOUS YEAR AND MODEL VEHICLES BUT NOT ON THE 2014(S). OBVIOUSLY, THERE ARE STILL PROBLEMS!!! A 2014 VEHICLE SHOULD NOT NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION!!!

Summary

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA S WITH 48,000 MILES ON IT. AFTER DRIVING IT FOR FOUR MONTHS I RECENTLY STARTED HAVING AN ISSUE. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS BAD GAS BECAUSE THE CAR STARTED JERKING AND ACTING LIKE IT WAS NOT GETTING GAS. I PURCHASED THE STUFF FOR FUEL THAT YOU USE TO INCREASE THE OCTANE IN THE TANK AND FILLED UP THE TANK. THE CAR DROVE OK FOR A DAY OR TWO, THEN IT STARTED WITH THE FOLLOWING. WHEN I DEPRESSED ON THE ACCELERATOR AT A STOP LIGHT, IT WOULD TAKE ABOUT 30 SECONDS TO PULL OFF. AT THAT TIME THE LIGHT CAME ON AND I LOOKED AT THE OWNERS MANUAL AND IT STATED IT WAS A FUEL EMISSION ISSUE. FILL THE TANK WITH HIGH OCTANE GAS AND THE LIGHT SHOULD GO OUT IN A FEW TRIPS. THE ISSUE CONTINUED TO GET WORSE AS I WAS DRIVING SAT, 10/10/15. I WENT FROM PULLING OFF SLOWLY, TO WHEN I DEPRESSED THE ACCELERATOR IT WOULDN'T GO AT ALL UNTIL I KEPT PUTTING THE CAR IN PARK, THEN DRIVE, THEN PARK, THEN DRIVE MANY TIMES UNTIL IT DECIDED TO DRIVE. AT THAT POINT I DECIDED TO TAKE THE CAR HOME CAUSE THE ISSUE WAS GETTING WORSE. ONLY I NEVER MADE IT HOME THE CAR SUDDENLY DECIDED IT WOULD NOT GO MORE THAN 35 IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC. I WAS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN. IN THE MIDDLE OF DRIVING IT JUST SLOWED DOWN IMMEDIATELY AND MADE THIS LOUD WHINING NOISE. HAD I NOT BEEN IN AN AREA WHERE I COULD PULL OVER IMMEDIATELY MY 72 YEAR MOTHER AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN TOAST.

THE VEHICLE HAS HAD RECURRING PROBLEMS WITH THE PASSENGER AIR BAG LIGHT COMING ON WHILE THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION AND WITH AN OCCUPANT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. THIS HAS OCCURRED ON BOTH CITY STREETS AND INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS. THE VEHICLE WAS BROUGHT IN DUE TO A RECALL ON THE RESTRAINT SYSTEM ON MAY 9, 2014. PREVIOUS TO THIS THERE WERE NO OBSERVABLE PROBLEMS. ON JUNE 12, 2014 THE VEHICLE WAS BROUGHT INTO THE DEALERSHIP BECAUSE I BEGAN TO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE AIR BAG LIGHT COMING ON WHEN A PASSENGER WAS IN THE FRONT SEAT WHILE DRIVING. NISSAN DETECTED A PROBLEM AND REPLACED THE AIRBAG DETECTION SENSOR. THE PROBLEM SOON BECAME EVIDENT AGAIN (MANY TIMES I DRIVE THE VEHICLE WHILE ALONE, SO PROBLEM ISN'T ALWAYS EVIDENT.) ON JAN 30, 2015 I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE INTO NISSAN DEALERSHIP WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. AGAIN, THEY DETECTED CODES REGARDING THE PASSENGER OCCUPANT SENSORS AND THEY SAID THEY REPLACED THE SENSOR. FIVE DAYS LATER THE PROBLEM SHOWED UP WHILE WE WERE ON A LENGTHY TRIP. I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE IN AGAIN ON APRIL 9. THEY STATED THAT NO CODES SHOWED UP AND SUGGESTED IT PROBABLY WOULD BE OK. HOWEVER ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS THE PROBLEM SHOWED UP AGAIN, I BROUGHT IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP, EACH TIME THEY STATED THAT THEY DID A COMPUTER SCAN AND NO CODES SHOWED UP. I HAD TAKEN VIDEOS ON 3 OCCASIONS SHOWING THE VEHICLE IN MOTION AND SHOWING A PASSENGER IN THE FRONT SEAT AND SHOWING THE AIRBAG LIGHT ON INDICATING THE AIRBAG WAS NOT IN OPERATION. I OFFERED , EVEN ASKED IF THEY WOULD WATCH BUT THEY DECLINED. THEY SAID THAT EVERYTHING WAS FUNCTIONAL. THEY FURTHER TOLD ME THAT THE PRIMARY MEANS OF RESTRAINT WAS THE SEATBELT. I ASKED IF THEY WOULD CHECK TO SEE IF THE SENSOR WAS POSITIONED PROPERLY, HOWEVER THEY REFUSED, SAYING THAT NISSAN WOULD NOT AUTHORIZE ANY OTHER WORK TO BE DONE UNLESS THE COMPUTER SHOWED A PROBLEM. I AM LEFT NOT KNOWING OF MY VEHICLE IS SAFE.

SINCE THE FIRST WEEK WE OWNED THE CAR, OCCASIONALLY THE SCREEN(BACK UP CAM, RADIO...) DOESN'T START, OR FAILS WITHIN FIRST MILE OF DRIVING- MAYBE 10 TIMES SINCE PURCHASE DATE. ON JULY 29, 2015- MORNING- CAR UPON START, NO SCREEN AND NO DASHBOARD. RESTARTED TWICE AND THEN FINE. AT 9:30 P.M. SAME DAY-- CLOSE TO HOME, SIDE MIRROR FAILURE WARNING SHOWED ON DASH- AND A SUBSEQUENT FAILURE OF SYSTEMS- INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO- GPS, SCREEN, TURN SIGNALS, HEADLIGHTS,HAZARD LIGHTS, ALL DASH INFORMATION. I PULLED INTO PARKING GARAGE AND ATTEMPTED TO OPEN WINDOW TO USE KEY FOB FOR GATE AND HAD NO OPERATING WINDOWS, INCLUDING SUNROOF OR LOCKS. PUT CAR IN PARK AND COULD NOT GET IT INTO ANOTHER GEAR.TRAPPED IN CAR FOR 15 MIN. WITH CAR RUNNING- PASSENGER DOOR THEN UNLOCKED. AAA CALLED. CAR RAN FOR 3 HRS. AAA DISABLED THE ELECTRICAL OPERATING THE FUEL PUMP. CAR TOWED TO COCHRAN IN PITTSBURGH. SINCE A RESTART RESETS THE COMPUTER, NO CODE ON DIAGNOSTIC WOULD BE FOUND. COCHRAN CONSIDERS THE SITUATION RESOLVED. NISSAN HAS A CASE # AND SEVERAL RECORDED (BY NISSAN) CONVERSATIONS HAVE OCCURRED WITH REGIONAL REP. AND THAT REP. WILL NOT SEND WRITTEN FINDINGS OF INVESTIGATION (CHECK THE I KEY)AS IT IS INTERNAL INFORMATION AND I WILL PAY ALL DIAGNOSTIC FEES ASSOCIATED. REP HAS NO TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE AND HAS NO EXPLANATION OF WHAT AN I KEY IS OR HOW OR FOR WHAT IT SHOULD BE CHECKED. THERE IS A DIRECTIVE FROM NISSAN REGARDING THIS PROBLEM AS TOLD TO ME BY WRIGHT NISSAN, BUT AGAIN NOTHING WILL BE DONE WITHOUT THE CODE FROM DIAGNOSTIC COMPUTER. THIS CAN'T HAPPEN AGAIN- BUT IT WILL AND IT COULD BE CATASTROPHIC-THE INTERMITTENT, RANDOM, SYSTEMATIC FAILURE WILL HAPPEN- THE EXTENT AND ORDER OF EVENTS UNKNOWN - LEAVING US AN UNCERTAIN OUTCOME AND NO PLAN FOR RESPONSE IN THE GIVEN SITUATION. WE SUSPECT THE PROBLEM IS THE BCM AS ALERTED BY THE INTERNET RESEARCH, THE AAA DRIVER AND THE COCHRAN TECH.

I PURCHASED A BRAND NEW 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA SV FROM BAKER NISSAN NORTH IN HOUSTON, TEXAS (19630 NORTHWEST FWY, HOUSTON, TX 77065 (281) 890-5656). MY TRANSMISSION HAS FAILED TWICE (REPLACED THE FIRST TIME AND NOW HAVING TO BE REPLACED AGAIN) AND I HAVE BEEN GETTING THE RUN AROUND FROM THE DEALERSHIP. THIS ISSUE SHOULD NOT BE OCCURRING WITH A BRAND NEW VEHICLE. THEN TO TOP IT OFF I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL CUSTOMER AND HAVE PURCHASED A TOTAL OF FOUR CARS FROM THIS DEALERSHIP NOW. I FILED A CONSUMER AFFAIRS REPORT WITH NISSAN CORPORATION AND HAVE YET TO HEAR SOMETHING. I ALSO CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AGAIN TO SPEAK WITH SOMEONE IN CHARGE SUCH AS THE GENERAL MANAGER AND THEY INFORMED ME TO CONTACT THE CONSUMERS AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT WITH NISSAN CORPORATION. THEY SAID THEY HAVE A CHAIN OF COMMAND TO FOLLOW AND THAT WOULD BE MY BEST BET OF GETTING THE SITUATION RESOLVED. I WOULD LIKE THIS SITUATION TO BE INVESTIGATED AND JUSTICE. I DO NOT SPEND MY HARD EARNED MONEY TO HAVE A CAR THAT IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY AND COULD PUT MY LIFE AND OTHERS IN DANGER. IT COMES DOWN TO THE FACT THAT THIS CAR IS A LEMON AND I SHOULD BE GIVEN BRAND NEW TRANSPORTATION OR THE DEALERSHIP SHOULD PURCHASE THE CAR AND PAY OFF THE LOAN AND LET ME TAKE MY BUSINESS ELSEWHERE....... I ALSO HAVE COPIES OF MY MAINTENANCE RECORDS FOR DOCUMENTATION PURPOSES.....THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME AND EFFORT. I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU SOON. *TR..UPDATED 11/05/15 *BF THE CONSUMER ALSO STATED THE AC WAS BLOWING OUT HOT AIR, THEN COOL AIR AND THE STEERING WHEEL WAS HARD TO TURN.

THE PASS. SIDE AIR BAG OFF LIGHT DO NOT ALL WAYS TURN OFF WHEN SOMEONE IS SETTING IN PASS. SEAT. NISSAN LAST YEAR HAD A RECALL FOR THIS PROBLEM, THEY RELOADED THE OCS SOFTWARE FOR THIS PROBLEM. I HAVE HAD 3 PROBLEM SO FAR SENSE THE RECALL. MOST OF THE TIME THERE IS NO ONE BUT ME IN THE CAR SO I DO NOT HAVE A IDEA OF HOW OFTEN IT COULD HAD FAIL IF SOMEONE WAS IN THE PASS. SEAT WITH EVERY TRIP. I HAVE ONLY TAKEN THE CAR ONCE TO THE DEALER FOR THIS PROBLEM BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME I DID NOT THINK ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THE SECOND TIME I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND AFTER CHECKING IT OUT, THEY TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS NOTING THEY COULD OR WOULD DO BECAUSE THEY HAD NO FAILURE AND THAT NISSAN WILL NOT LET THEM REPLACE ANY PARTS UNLESS THERE IS A FAILURE AS NISSAN WILL NOT PAY FOR THE ITEM. OPEN REF.# 19611123 WITH NISSAN AND WAS TOLD ABOUT THE SAME THIN, EXCEPT NISSAN SAID THAT IT WAS THE DEALER CALL BUT THEY WOULD NOT PAY FOR NO FAILURE PART REPLACEMENT. I BELIEVE IS A SAFETY PROBLEM AND SOMEONE WITH POWER SHOULD LOOK INTO IT, DO TO THE FACT THERE HAVE ALREADY BEEN A RECALL FOR THIS PROBLEM. NO ONE I TALK TO AT THE DEALER OR ON THE PHONE TO NISSAN WOULD OR COULD DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THE INTERNET HAS MANY WRITE UP ABOUT THIS PROBLEM THAT NO ONE WILL DO ANYTHING ABOUT. I GUESS THEY ARE WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO BE BADLY INJURED OR KILLED TO TAKE THE PROBLEM SERIOUS.

STARTED NOTICING THIS PROBLEM IN THE FIRST WEEK OF PURCHASE. CAR NEEDS TO BE CONSTANTLY CORRECTED TO STAY INSIDE THE LANE EVEN WHEN DRIVING STRAIGHT, AND THE STEERING BECOMES TO TAUT WHEN I TRY TO CORRECT IT, LIKE ITS BEING PULLED AWAY FROM DEAD-CENTRE. I ALMOST RAN INTO CARS IN THE OTHER LANE, WAS HONKED AT MULTIPLE TIMES.. NOW I AM EXTREMELY CAREFUL AND DRIVE WITH BOTH HANDS ON THE STEERING CONSTANTLY ADJUSTING TO STAY INSIDE THE LANE. A FRIEND WHO WAS FOLLOWING ME LAST WEEKEND SAID I WAS WEAVING SO MUCH THAT IT LOOKED LIKE SOME DRUNK WAS DRIVING THE CAR!! THE STEERING ISSUE HAS TO BE FIXED BEFORE IT CAUSED ANY FATALITIES.

DURING OUR VACATION WHILE DRIVING IN ILLINOIS WE NOTICED WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY GOING AT A SPEED OF 60 TO 65 MPH WHILE AN ADULT OCCUPYING THE PASSENGER SEAT THE AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON AND SAID PASSENGER AIR BAG TURNED OFF. I PULLED OUT THE OWNERS MANUAL AND READ THAT IT COULD BE CAUSED BY AN ARTICLE PERHAPS TOUCHING THE SEAT IF RECLINED TOO FAR BACK. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE. THERE WAS NOTHING TOUCHING THE SEAT. I WAS SITTING PERFECTLY STILL SO THE SENSOR SHOULD HAVE DETECTED A PASSENGER IN THE SEAT. I HAD BEEN SITING IN THE SEAT FOR HOURS WITH THE NORMAL MOVEMENT. WE PULLED OVER AND TURNED THE CAR OFF THEN RESTARTED AND THE LIGHT STAYED OFF. THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL MORE TIMES WHILE DRIVING ON OUR VACATION AND IS A SCARY THOUGHT TO HAVE THIS OCCUR. ONCE HOME, I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP FOR AN APPOINTMENT AND IN THE MEANTIME THE SAME THING OCCURRED ON A SHORT IN TOWN TRIP TWICE.MY APPOINTMENT IS THIS WEEK SO I AM CURIOUS WHAT THEY WILL FIND.

THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT SEAT WILL NOT DETECT AN ADULT OCCUPYING THE SEAT AND DISABLES THE AIR BAG FOR THAT PASSENGER. I HAVE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED THIS ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS FOR ADULTS RANGING IN WEIGHTS FROM 130 POUNDS TO 165 POUNDS. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO MY DEALER ON 4 OCCASIONS. THE FIRST TIME THEY TOLD ME THEY REPROGRAMMED IT. THE SECOND, THEY REPLACED A SENSOR. THE THIRD, THEY SAID MY WIFE DIDN'T WEIGH ENOUGH AND TO SIT VERY STILL OR BOUNCE AROUND IN THE SEAT SO THAT THE PASSENGER IS DETECTED. THE FOURTH TIME, THEY REPLACED TWO SENSORS. STILL THE ISSUE PERSISTS. TO TRY AND REMEDY, I HAVE TO PUT THE CAR IN PARK AND KEEP TURNING THE CAR OFF AND ON UNTIL IT DETECTS MY PASSENGER AND ENABLES THE AIRBAG.

WE RENTED A 2014 ALTIMA S FROM A LOCAL HERTZ RENT-A-CAR AND TRAVELED ROUNDTRIP FROM FLORIDA TO NEW YORK. ON THE RETURN TRIP WE STOPPED AT A REST AREA JUST ENTERING SOUTH CAROLINA. WHEN I RESTARTED THE VEHICLE AND WENT TO PUT THE VEHICLE IN REVERSE THE CAR STALLED OUT. I PROCEEDED TO PUT THE VEHICLE IN PARK AND RESTARTED THE CAR. WHEN I PUT THE VEHICLE AGAIN IN REVERSE, AGAIN IT STALLED; TRIED AGAIN TO PUT IT IN DRIVE, AGAIN IT STALLED. I THEN CALLED HERTZ EMERGENCY ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE TO GET A TOW TO THE NEAREST HERTZ RENTAL WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE TO THE NEAREST AIRPORT. THE TOW CAME IN 45 MINUTES SINCE THE NEAREST RELIABLE TOW WAS IN NORTH CAROLINA. EVEN THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER COULD NOT PUT THE VEHICLE IN GEAR WITHOUT THE VEHICLE STALLING OUT EVEN AFTER COOLING FOR ALMOST AN HOUR. THE CAR RENTAL GAVE US ANOTHER VEHICLE, A NISSAN SENTRA, WHICH WAS THE LARGEST VEHICLE THEY HAD AVAILABLE. LUCKILY WE WERE ABLE TO FINISH OUR TRIP TO FLORIDA WITHOUT ANY FURTHER INCIDENCE. THE RENTAL AGENT OR HIS BOSS COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT THIS PROBLEM HAPPENED; THAT THEY'RE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MECHANICAL PROBLEMS WITH THEIR RENTALS; THAT SHE'LL GIVE ME A TOKEN DOLLARS OFF MY RENTAL SINCE NO OTHER PLACES WOULD EVEN DO WHAT SHE DID FOR US....UPDATED 07/30/15 *BF UPDATED 9/24/2015 *JS

FIRST THINKING IT WAS NOT A GREAT DEAL, I KEPT GOING HOWEVER I NOTICED IT THAT IT WAS BECOMING MORE CONSTANT. ONE DAY ABOUT TO REVERSE OUT OF A PARKING LOT, I PUT THE CAR IN REVERSE, AND THE CAR TURNED OFF. THERE WAS NO RESPONSE AT ALL FROM THE TRANSMISSION. I THEN TURNED THE IGNITION OFF AND RESTARTED IT AND IT STARTED WORKING FINE. BEING LATE FOR WORK, I THEN CONTINUED ON AND UNTIL YESTERDAY EVERYTHING WAS OKAY. YESTERDAY, I GOT INTO MY CAR, STARTED IT, SWITCHED TO DRIVE, AND THE ENGINE SHUT OFF AND THERE WAS NO RESPONSE FROM THE TRANSMISSION. I TURNED THE IGNITION OFF, TURNED IT ON AGAIN, MOVED THE SHIFTER INTO REVERSE AND THE ENGINE SHUT OFF AGAIN. I HAVE SINCE HAD IT TOWED AND IT IS BEING CHECKED AT THE DEALERSHIP. THIS BEING A ONE YEAR OLD CAR, I DO NOT EXPECT IT TO GIVE THESE ISSUES.

MY WIFE WEIGHS 120 POUNDS YET IT IS NOT INFREQUENT FOR THE LIGHT TO GO ON WHEN WE START THE CAR AND THEN REMAIN ON FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, USUALLY BETWEEN FIFTEEN AND THIRTY MINUTES. IT MAY ALSO COME ON AND STAY ON IF SHE GETS IN THE CAR AFTER I HAVE STARTED IT. SINCE LOCAL TRIPS ARE OFTEN LESS THAN THIRTY MINUTES, THERE ARE TIMES WE COMPLETE A SHORT TRIP WITHOUT THE LIGHT GOING OUT. THE LIGHT WILL ALSO COME ON FOR NO APPARENT REASON WHILE WE ARE DRIVING. DURING ONE OF THESE EPISODES THE LIGHT CAME ON WHILE WE WERE DRIVING ON AN INTERSTATE, REMAINED ON FOR JUST OVER AN HOUR, AND THEN WENT OFF. WE HAVE HAD THE CAR EVALUATED BY NISSAN TWICE AND ARE REPEATEDLY TOLD NOTHING IS WRONG. I ALSO WROTE AND SPOKE WITH NISSAN CORPORATE AND WAS TOLD THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO. THERE IS NOTHING UNDER THE SEAT. THERE ARE NO CHILDREN IN THE CAR AND MY WIFE IS NOT TURNING AROUND IN THE SEAT. I HAVE PICTURES (I CAN FORWARD IF DESIRED) THAT SHOW THE PROBLEM WHILE WE ARE ON THE ROAD. *TR
