Summary of Complaint

MY 18 OLD SONS CAR JUST HIT 87000 MILES AND THE STEERING LOCK MECHANISM HAS FAILED. NOT ONLY IS THIS A $900 REPAIR BUT IT IS A REOCCURRING PROBLEM WITH NISSAN VEHICLES. MY SON WAS STRANDED IN A PARKING LOT AT 12AM. THIS HAS OCCURRED 3 TIMES WHILE HIS CAR IS OFF. HE IS UNABLE TO START IT. HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED 3 TIMES WITH THE DEALER SAYING IT WAS A BATTERY PROBLEM. HAD THE BATTERY REPLACED. NISSAN ADMITS THERE IS A STEERING LOCK PROBLEM AND THAT THE RECALL PERIOD ENDED IN JAN 3016. MY SON IS 18 AND JUST BOUGHT THE CAR FROM A REPUTABLE MAJOR CAR DEALERSHIP IN TOWN. ANYTIME A DRIVER IS AT RISK IN A PARKING GARAGE OR LOT OR FREEWAY WITH A CAR THAT HAD THIS NOTABLE PROBLEM IT IS A SAFETY CONCERN.

VIN: 1N4AA51E29C****

Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED THE 2009 NISSAN MAXIMA FROM THE DEALER, BRAND NEW, IN NOVEMBER, 2008. SEVERAL MONTHS LATER, I NOTICED THAT AS I SAT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT, THE AIRBAG LIGHT WOULD COME ON INDICATING THAT THE AIRBAG WOULD NOT DEPLOY IN AN ACCIDENT. I AM 5'4" AND 140 POUNDS AND NOT A CHILD OR EVEN A SMALLER ADULT. THROUGHOUT THE PAST 5 YEARS, THE SAME PROBLEM WOULD HAPPEN WHEN SOMEONE SAT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. THE LIGHT WILL COME ON UNEXPECTEDLY WHILE I SAT THERE AND MY HUSBAND DROVE. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER ON 2 OCCASIONS (FIRST TIME IN 2009 AND AGAIN IN 2010) AND EXPLAINED TO THEM WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND THAT I FELT UNSAFE SITTING IN THAT SEAT SHOULD WE HAVE AN ACCIDENT. THEY SAID THAT THEY COULD NOT REPLICATE THE PROBLEM AND UNLESS THE COMPUTER SPITS OUT AN ERROR CODE, THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO (EVEN THOUGH IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY). NOW THE CAR IS OVER 5 YEARS OLD AND HAS 85,000 MILES ON IT. MY POWERTRAIN WARRANTY IS EXPIRED (AS IT ENDED AT 60,000 MILES). IT IS NOW THAT THE PASSENGER AIR BAG LIGHT STAYS ON CONSTANTLY, EVEN WHEN NOBODY IS SITTING IN THE SEAT. ALSO, THE FLASHING AIR BAG LIGHT ON MY DASHBOARD STAYS ON. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AGAIN AND THEY SAID IT'S THE SENSOR IN THE PASSENGER SEAT THAT HAS FAILED. IT GAVE AN ERROR COD B1018. SINCE IT IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY, IT WILL COST ME $1,900 OUT OF POCKET. I CONTACTED NISSAN'S CONSUMER AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT AND ASKED THEM TO COVER IT?THEY DENIED THE CLAIM AND WILL NOT COVER THE REPAIR. I WANT TO ALERT THE NHTSA THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM NOT ONLY ON NEWER NISSANS, BUT ALSO ON THE OLDER NISSANS, INCLUDING THE 2009 MAXIMA. MY HOPE IS THAT THIS YEAR AND MODEL WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR AN EXPANDED RECALL TO THE CURRENT RECALL. THIS IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE AND ONE THAT NISSAN SHOULD AGREE TO TAKE CARE OF FOR ALL CARS THAT SHOW THIS PROBLEM. *TR

VIN: 1N4AA51E29C****

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED 2009 NEW. APPROX 1 YEAR LATER THE DRIVERS SEAT BEGAN TO ROCK. NISSAN REPLACED THE DRIVERS TRACK WHICH THEY SAID WAS DEFECTIVE. A FEW MONTHS LATER IT BEGAN TO ROCK AGAIN AND WAS REPORTED TO NISSAN, THEY STATED THERE WAS NO PROBLEM. THE SEAT CONTINUED TO ROCK AND INCREASINGLY GOT WORSE. JANUARY 2014 THE VEHICLE IS RETURNED TO THE DEALERSHIP BECAUSE IT IS DANGEROUSLY ROCKING BACK AND FOURTH WHEN YOU ACCELERATE OR BRAKE. THE SERVICE MANAGER STATES HE IS WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEM. NISSAN REFUSES TO MAKE REPAIRS BECAUSE ITS OUT OF WARRANTY. FURTHER INVESTIGATION FINDS THAT THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF VEHICLES OUT THERE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. I ATTEMPT TO GO THREW NISSAN TO OWN UP TO THEIR PROBLEM. I GET UP TO THE VP OF CUSTOMER SERVICE AND RECEIVE A PHONE CALL STATING THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO BUT KEEP MY RECEIPT IN CASE THERE IS A RECALL AND I MAY GET MY MONEY BACK IF THERE'S A RECALL. *TR

VIN: 1N4AA51E29C****

Summary of Complaint

THE ENGINE WOULD NOT TURN OVER OR START AND THE STEERING WHEEL IS LOCKED. A SMALL YELLOW KEY APPEARS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE LEFT INSTRUMENT DIAL. THE INTELLIGENT KEY DOES NOT ENGAGE. WEB RESEARCH INDICATES PROBABLE STEERING LOCK FAILURE. THE CAR WAS TOWED TO NEAREST NISSAN DEALER TODAY FEB. 5 WHO CONFIRMED THAT STEERING LOCK HAS FAILED. THE DEALER SERVICE PERSONNEL TELLS ME THE REPLACEMENT PART IS ON BACK ORDER, NONE OF THE OTHER DEALERS IN THE WASHINGTON DC AREA HAVE ONE. TECHNICALLY IT MAY NOT BE A SAFETY PROBLEM REQUIRING A RECALL BUT IF YOU HAD THIS PROBLEM ON THE SHOULDER OF AN INTERSTATE HIGHWAY OR SITTING ON THE TRACKS AT A RAILROAD CROSSING IT COULD BE VERY DANGEROUS. NOW WE WILL NEED SOME EXPERIENCE IN ORDER TO TRUST THE CAR TO OPERATE CORRECTLY IN A SAFE MANNER. I AM GLAD WE HAVE ANOTHER CAR THAT IS WORKING CORRECTLY. *TR

Summary of Complaint

MY 2009 NISSAN MAXIMA WILL NOT START. THE YELLOW KEY LIGHT ON THE LEFT COMES ON BRIEFLY. I HAD IT TOWED TO A REPAIR SHOP AND WAS TOLD IT IS THE STEERING COLUMN LOCK MODULE. PART IS NOT AVAILABLE DUE TO A HIGH FAILURE RATE.. THE DEALER, REPAIR SHOP AND THE TOW TRUCK DRIVER ALL NOTED THIS IS HAPPENING FREQUENTLY. THIS WAS ALSO CONFIRMED BY SOME INTERNET RESEARCH. I THINK A NATIONWIDE RECALL IS IN ORDER. DRIVERS ARE BEING STRANDED WITH NO WARNING. *TR

Summary of Complaint

IN MY TRAVEL TO WORK I ARRIVED AT THE LOCAL GAS STATION TO FUEL UP. AFTERWARDS, I GOT BACK IN AND TRIED TO START MY CAR AND IT WOULD NOT START. THE "KEY INDICATOR" WAS THE ONLY LIGHT THAT WAS SHOWING ON THE DASH AND THE WORK "LOCK" WAS SHOWING ON THE PUSH TO START BUTTON. I END UP HAVING TO CALL A ROLL BACK TO TOW MY CAR TO THE NEAREST NISSAN DEALERSHIP WHICH IS OUT OF STATE AND CAUSED ME $200. ONCE I ARRIVED, THE NISSAN EMPLOYEE TOLD ME THAT IT WAS THE CAR LOCK STEERING THAT WAS PREVENTING THE CAR TO START AND THAT IT WAS GOING TO COST $866 TO REPAIR. I HAD TO OPTION BUT TO PAY BECAUSE I NEED MY CAR TO GO TO WORK. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS PROBLEM AND DISCOVERED THIS HAS HAPPENED TO SEVERAL OTHER PEOPLE THAT OWN NISSAN MAXIMA'S AND OTHER NISSAN MAKES. THIS PART SHOULD BE RECALLED BECAUSE IT'S FREQUENTLY HAPPENED TO OTHERS RESULTING IN ALL BEING STRANDED. I HAD NO INDICATION THAT THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. IT HAPPENED SUDDEN. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I WAS STRANDED IN A PARKING LOT WITH FREEEZING TEMPERATURE. NISSAN HAD TO REPLACE THE STEERING LOCK ASSEMBLY TO THE TUNE OF $800. IT IS A PART THAT HAS BEEN RECALLED ON THE GTR. IT HAS BEEN DOCUMENTED ON THE 370Z. THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING ON THE MAXIMA OR ALTIMA. OWNERS OF THE 2009 ARE TOLD TO REMOVE THE FUSE TO TAKE THIS PART OUT OF THE EQUATION AND NOT GET STRANDED. NISSAN HAS REPLACED THIS PART ON 2010 VEHICLES AND NEWER. THEY SHOULD REIMBURSE ANYONE WHO HAS TO MAKE THIS REPAIR. IT IS A PART THAT IS NOT NECESSARY IN THIS VEHICLE. PROVEN BY NISSAN HAVING THEIR TECHNCIANS REMOVE THE FUSE IN 2009 MAXIMAS, ALTIMAS, 370Z AND GTR. THE FAULTY PART HAS BEEN PROVEN TO EXIST IN THE 2009 GTR, 370Z AND MAXIMAS. NISSANS CHANGING OF THE PART IN 2010 AND NEWER VEHICLES IS A DIRECT ADMSSION OF THEIR GUILT. *TR
