Summary of Complaint

THE PAINT ABOVE THE FRONT WHEEL WELL ON BOTH THE PASSENGER AND DRIVERS SIDE OF MY 2012 NISSAN FRONTIER (BLUE) WITH 69,0000 MILES IS PEALING OFF IN CHUNKS. IF DO AN INTERNET SEARCH ON 'PAINT FLAKING NISSAN FRONTIER' YOU CAN SEE NUMEROUS PICTURES. TALKING WITH THE DEALER, PREVALENT ISSUE ON DARK COLORED FRONTIERS (BLUE IS ESPECIALLY PREVALENT. CLEARLY A FACTORY DEFECT AS THE PAINT IS NOT ADHERING TO THE PRIMER. TALKED TO NISSAN CONSUMER SUPPORT AND THEY BASICALLY SAY IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY SO GOOD LUCK WITH REPAIR. CLEARLY THIS IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT THAT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. NOT A SAFETY ISSUE, BUT POOR CUSTOMER SUPPORT. HAS IT BEEN FIXED? MY EXPECTATION IS THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SOME COST SHARE FOR THIS REPAIR.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE WOULD RANDOMLY STALL WHILE DRIVING, PARTICULARLY WHEN SLOWING FOR A TRAFFIC SIGNAL. THE ENGINE STOPPING WOULD CAUSE ALL POWER ASSISTED FUNCTIONS TO CEASE MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO STEER AND BRAKE. MOST RECENTLY THE VEHICLE WOULD START EXTREME HESITATION WHILE DRIVING AND I COULD NOT GET UP TO THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT OF 55 MPH. I HAD TO USE MY FLASHERS TO WARN OTHER DRIVERS THAT MY SPEED WAS ONLY APPROXIMATELY 35 MPH. ALSO THE TRANSMISSION HAD DIFFICULTY SHIFTING. THIS WAS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ON A 2 LANE HIGHWAY WHERE VEHICLES RAPIDLY APPROACHED FROM THE REAR. IT WOULDN'T NEGOTIATE A LARGE HII (LACK OF POWER) AND I HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO MY HOME.

MY TRUCK HAS HAD WHAT FEELS TO ME LIKE A ROUGH IDLE FOR ABOUT AS LONG AS I'VE HAD IT. IT WAS FINE FOR SEVERAL YEARS BUT A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO THE TRUCK DIED AT A STOP LIGHT. IT STARTED RIGHT BACK UP AND I DIDN'T THINK I'D BE ABLE TO REPLICATE THIS FOR A MECHANIC SO I JUST KEPT DRIVING IT. IT ALSO DIED ONCE ON MY WIFE BUT SHE DIDN'T TELL ME ABOUT IT AT THE TIME. A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY AT LOWER SPEEDS DUE TO TRAFFIC. IT DIED ON ME AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT WOULDN'T START. I HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO A NISSAN DEALER. THEY REPAIRED A PART IN THE TRANSMISSION AND GAVE IT BACK TO ME. IT SEEMED OK BUT AFTER ABOUT TEN MILES IT DIED AGAIN. I BROUGHT IT BACK AND THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT. THEY CLEANED THE THROTTLE BODY AND GAVE IT BACK TO ME. IT IS STILL IDLING ROUGH. IT HASN'T DIED AGAIN YET BUT I'M AFRAID OF WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IF IT DOES. I'VE LOOKED ONLINE AND THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THESE TRUCKS. I THINK IT HAS SOME DEFECT THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED THROUGH A RECALL FOR THE SAFETY OF DRIVERS ON THE ROAD.

I WAS HIT FROM BEHIND WHILE COMPLETELY STOPPED TO MAKE A LEFT HAND TURN ON A CITY STREET. THE CAR THAT HIT ME, A 2006 NISSAN ALTIMA, WAS TRAVELLING, I BELIEVE, BETWEEN 45-50 MPH. BOTH VEHICLES WERE TOTALED. THE AIRBAG IN MY 2012 NISSAN FRONTIER DID NOT DEPLOY. I DON'T BELIEVE THAT IS NORMAL, BUT NISSAN WILL NOT COMMENT. WITHIN A WEEK OF THE ACCIDENT, I RECEIVED A RECALL NOTIFICATION FROM NISSAN REGARDING THE AIRBAG CONTROL UNIT NOT BEING CALIBRATED PROPERLY. I FIND IT STRANGE THAT NISSAN WILL NOT COMMENT ON NON-DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAG, YET SENDS ME A RECALL NOTICE FOR AN OUT OF CALIBRATION AIRBAG CONTROL UNIT.

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT NEW TIRES, SAME SIZE AND BRAND NAME AS THE LAST 4 TIRES BUT A DIFFERENT MODEL TYPE OF TIRES. AS I WAS DRIVING THE VEHICLE ON A 2 LANE ROAD, THE FRONT PASSENGER TIRE FLEW OFF THE RIM. THE RIM SCRAPED THE ROADWAY AND FLIPPED MY TRUCK UPWARDS AND SPUN THE VEHICLE UP IN THE AIR OVER A GUARD RAIL AND I HIT INTO A CONCRETE CULVERT. THE VEHICLE WAS DECLARED A TOTAL LOSS. THE TIRES WERE INSTALLED BY A SHOP, BALANCED AND ALIGNED. THE VEHICLE WAS BROUGHT BACK A FEW DAYS LATER TO THAT SAME SHOP DUE TO THE VEHICLE SHAKING VIGOROUSLY AT ROUGHLY 40 MPH. THE SHOP REBALANCED THE 4 TIRES AND ROTATED THEM. THE MECHANIC ADVISED ME THAT THE BACK DRIVER TIRE HAD LOST PSI AND WAS CLOSE TO 30 PSI, THE COLD PSI ON THE TIRE SAYS 50 PSI. THE MECHANIC ADVISED ME THAT A ROTATION WAS COMPLETED AND THAT TIRE WAS NOW IN THE FRONT PASSENGER LOCATION AND WAS INFLATED BACK TO 50 PSI. THE SHOP MECHANIC ALSO ADVISED ME THAT HE BELIEVED THE TIRE THAT WAS THEN IN THE FRONT PASSENGER LOCATION MAY BE FAULTY IN REGARDS TO THE WIRE INSIDE THE RUBBER OF THE TIRE AND ASKED WHERE I PURCHASED THE TIRES. AS I ENTERED THE HIGHWAY WITH SPEED LIMIT OF 70, I COULD MERELY APPROACH 60 MPH WITH VIGOROUS SHAKING. I ADVISED THE SHOP OF THIS, BUT DECIDED TO GO WITH ANOTHER SHOP TO CHECK THE BALANCING AND PREFORM A NEW BALANCING. THE NEW SHOP ADVISED ME THAT THE RIMS WERE NOT CLEANED PROPERLY FOR THE INITIAL SHOP'S WEIGHTS TO STAY ON AND SAID THE VEHICLE MAY HAD BEEN THROWING THEIR WEIGHTS OFF. UPON COMPLETION OF THE 3RD BALANCING, THE SHOP HAD ALSO INSTALLED A BACK UP CAMERA FOR ME BUT DID NOT HOOK THE FRONT AIR BAGS BACK UP. THESE DID NOT DEPLOY DURING THE ACCIDENT. AFTER THE LAST BALANCING, THE VEHICLE STILL SHOOK AT HIGHER SPEEDS BUT WAS MUCH LESS THAN THE OTHER TIMES. MY VEHICLE NEVER HAD ANY OF THESE ISSUES WITH THE TIRES I PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED WHICH LASTED APPROXIMATELY 55,000 MILES AND NEVER SHOOK BEFORE.

UPON ASKING ABOUT THE RECALL ON NISSAN OCS SENSOR I WAS TOLD THAT THE FRONTIER WAS NOT ON THE RECALL LIST. WE FEEL THAT THE OCS SENSOR ON ANY NISSAN VEHICLE SHOULD BE ON THE RECALL LIST,NO MATTER WHERE THE FRONTIER WAS MANUFACTURED. THE RED BLINKING LIGHT CAME ON AS WE WERE GOING HOME. AFTER I WAS TOLD THAT THE FRONTIER WAS ON THE LIST I WAS INFORMED THAT THE SENSOR WOULD COST ME $1180.00 WE FEEL THAT THIS IS NOT RIGHT OR FAIR.

Summary of Complaint

SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAGS DEPLOYED FOR NO REASON WHILE DRIVING 5-10 MPH ON FLAT ROAD. ALMOST KNOCKED ME OUT AND LEFT ME CONFUSED FOR AWHILE, AND CAUSED MY EARS TO RING ALL DAY. NISSAN NORTH AMERICA SENT SOME SORT OF REP TO LOCAL DEALER TO DOWNLOAD DATA FROM THE TRUCK TO DETERMINE WHAT HAPPENED. THEY THEN TOLD ME THAT "THE CONDITIONS WERE NOT MET" FOR AIRBAGS TO HAVE DEPLOYED. THEY REPLACED THE AIRBAG SYSTEM AND RETURNED IT TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION AT NO COST TO MYSELF. OTHER THAN THAT THEY DECLINED MULTIPLE TIMES TO HELP ME IN ANYWAY TO GET INTO ANOTHER NISSAN VEHICLE, I WAS WILLING TO STAY WITH NISSAN IF THEY WOULD HAVE WORKED WITH ME AND BOUGHT IT BACK AND/OR GOT ME INTO A NEWER FRONTIER. I WAS WILLING TO DO THIS BECAUSE APPARENTLY THE 2011 AND 2012 MODEL FRONTIERS ARE THE ONLY ONES EXPERIENCING THIS DEFECT, AS A RESULT OF THEIR ROLLOVER ANTICIPATION SOFTWARE WHICH FIRES THE CURTAIN AIRBAGS WHEN IT "THINKS" THAT A ROLLOVER IS EMINENT. THIS HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER OWNERS OF THE SAME MODEL AND YEAR FRONTIER WITH ONE INCIDENT RESULTING IN PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS FOR THE CHILDREN THAT WERE IN THE FRONTIER. THERE IS A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST NISSAN OF NORTH AMERICA FOR THIS ISSUE THAT WAS STARTED BY ONE OF THE VICTIMS TO THIS NEGLIGENCE. APPARENTLY NISSAN KNOWS OF THE PROBLEM AND HAS DONE NOTHING ABOUT IT AT ALL. THEY ALSO APPARENTLY REFUSED TO REPAIR SOME OF THE AIRBAGS IN SOME OF THESE INCIDENTS IN THE LAWSUIT. NOT HAPPY WITH NISSAN ALLOWING THIS VEHICLE TO STAY ON THE ROAD SINCE IT ALLOWS FOR A DANGEROUS POSSIBILITY FOR THIS TO HAPPEN ON A BUSY ROAD WITH OTHERS AROUND, AND FOR THE OCCUPANTS OF THE FRONTIER MENTIONED. NOT HAPPY AND WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO GET LEGAL COUNSEL TO HELP ME. *DSY - SEE 10896442.

THIS TRUCK HAS FAULTY PROGRAMMING THAT CONTROLS THESE AIRBAGS. THEY STATE THAT, INSTEAD OF THE AIRBAGS DEPLOYING IN A CRASH, THEY ARE PROGRAMMED TO "ANTICIPATE" A CRASH AND THEN DEPLOY. NISSAN NORTH AMERICA SENT AN ENGINEER TO THE DEALERSHIP TO DOWNLOAD DATA FROM THE TRUCK TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED, AND I ONLY RECEIVED LIMITED DATA UPON MY REQUEST. THEY SENT ME A FEW PAGES OF "HIGH FREQUENCY DATA" CHARTED IN COLUMNS WITH THE FIRST PAGE CONTAINING "FRONTAL DELTA-V" AND "LATERAL DELTA-V", THE SECOND PAGE WITH "FRONTAL G" AND "LATERAL G", AND THE THIRD PAGE WITH "VEHICLE SPEED" AND "ENGINE REVOLUTION". *DSY - SEE 10898639.

Summary of Complaint

MY AUTOMOBILE WAS ALWAYS SERVICED REGULARLY BY NISSAN DEALERS AND WAS LAST SERVICED ON 04 AUG 2015 AT MICHAEL JORDAN NISSAN, DURHAM NC. AT THAT TIME IT WAS NOTED THAT A BATTERY TERMINAL WAS CORRODED, WHICH I INDICATED I WOULD REPAIR MYSELF. ON 11 AUG, I INSPECTED MY BATTERY TERMINAL AND NOTICED THAT ONE OF THE BATTERY CELL CAPS WAS MISSING AND THE TOP OF THE BATTERY WAS DAMP AND DEBRIS HAD FALLEN INTO THE BATTERY CELLS AND THE POSITIVE BATTERY CLAMP WAS SEVERELY CORRODED. LOOKING ONLINE THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER COMPLAINTS ABOUT NISSAN FRONTIER BATTERIES BLOWING THEIR CAPS OFF AND EVEN DESTROYING THE ECMS. WHEN I ATTEMPTED RESOLUTION WITH NISSAN CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THE SERVICING DEALERSHIP I WAS ONLY OFFERED A REPLACEMENT BATTERY CAP AND A CHARGE OF $30 TO CLEAN THE TERMINALS. THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A PATTERN OF FAILURE HERE THAT IS EQUIPMENT RELATED AND I AM DISTURBED THAT NISSAN IS NOT INTERESTED IN SOLVING THE ROOT CAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM. HAVING A BATTERY THAT BLOWS THE CAPS AND SPEWS ACID IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT SOUNDS LIKE A MANUFACTURER RESPONSIBILITY TO ME.

Summary of Complaint

I NOTICED A LEAK IN THE REAR END OF MY 2012 FRONTIER, COMING FROM THE RACK & PINION SEAL. I PURCHASED THE EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE VEHICLE. IT TURNS OUT THAT A BREATHER/SCREEN HAD RUSTED AND CAUSED PRESSURE TO BUILD, CAUSING THE SEAL TO LEAK. I BROUGHT IT TO MY LOCAL NISSAN SERVICE CENTER AND THEY REFUSED TO REPAIR IT UNDER WARRANTY, SAYING THAT NISSAN CONSIDERS IT "ENVIRONMENTAL CAUSES". I KNOW OF OTHER MAKES AND MODELS THAT GO 100,000 OR 200,000+ MILES WITHOUT READ END ISSUES. I HAVE TALKED TO OTHER FRONTIER OWNERS AND FOUND THAT THEY HAVE HAD SIMILAR ISSUES, WITH AS LITTLE AS 13,000 MILES AND TRUCKS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. I FEEL THAT THIS IS A DESIGN FLAW AND NISSAN SHOULD REPAIR THIS DEFECT UNDER WARRANTY.

Summary of Complaint

I FIRST NOTICED THE INCIDENT TODAY IN A DOWNTOWN AREA, SPEED OF 35 MPH. UPON REMOVING MY FOOT FROM THE ACCELERATOR THE RPM DROPPED TO 1000, NOT LOWER, AND THE VEHICLE CONTINUED TO MOVE AT THE 35 MPH. AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY I WAS ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE EVENT. AS I ENTERED OUR STREET I BRAKED REDUCING SPEED. THE VEHICLE RPM REMAINED AT 1000 AND THE SPEED WAS LOWER,BUT REQUIRING BRAKING TO SLOW COMPLETLY. I INSPECTED THE ACCELATOR PEDAL AREA, WITH MY WIFE TO VERIFY THAT NOTHING WAS BLOCKING THE ACCELATOR. MY WIFE AND I TOOK THE VEHICLE ON ANOTHER TEST DRIVE AND WAS ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE EVENT, CRUSING AT 35 MPH WITH NO FOOT ON THE ACCELERATOR, RPM AT 1000. THE OUTSIDE TEMP. WAS APPROX. 102/104F. WEATHER CLEAR AND DRY. THE VEHICLE WAS USED OVER THE WEEKEND FOR A ROUND TRIP OF APPROX. 700 MILES. THE VEHICLE IS SERVICED ON A REGULAR BASIS, MILEAGE UPON PARKING WAS 18,135. I THINK THIS IS POTENTIALLY A SERIOUS SAFE ISSUE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

VEHICLE BECAME HARD TO PUT INTO GEAR, ESPECIALLY WHEN COLD. TOOK CAR TO THE DEALER, AND THEY SAID SOMETHING MUST HAVE SPILLED DOWN BY THE SHIFTER LINKAGE. I AM THE ONLY DRIVER, AND I DO NOT THINK THAT WAS THE CASE, BUT COULD NOT BE ABSOLUTELY SURE. I AM ONLY SUBMITTING THIS, BECAUSE I SAW SEVERAL OTHER POSTS WHERE PEOPLE COULD NOT SHIFT THEIR VEHICLES OUT OF PARK, NISSAN WOULD NOT HELP OUT WITH THE EXPENSE OF REPAIR SINCE THEY WERE OUT OF WARRANTY. ANYONE READING THIS SHOULD THINK LONG AND HARD BEFORE PURCHASING A NISSAN. THEY ARE NOT THE HIGH QUALITY VEHICLES THEY WERE AT ONE TIME.

Summary of Complaint

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN SEPT., 2014, AND MAY 2015. MY AIR CONDITIONER STOPPED WORKING. WARRANTY EXPIRED IN JANUARY, 2015. PROBLEM IS A FAULTY A/C CLUTCH. UNFORTUNATELY, CLUTCH AND COMPRESSOR ARE ONE UNIT. NISSAN OF NORTH AMERICA SAID NISSAN DEALER HAD TO DIAGNOSE PROBLEM FOR THEM TO MAKE A DECISION, SINCE I WAS OUT OF WARRANTY. I DID SO, AND NISSAN NORTH AMERICA SAID THEY COULD NOT HELP, SINCE VEHICLE WAS OUT OF WARRANTY. NISSAN IS NOT THE NISSAN OF YEARS AGO. POOR QUALITY, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. DO NOT GET STUCK LIKE ME. DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE BUYING.
