Summary of Complaint

I WAS SITTING IN MY CAR IN MY DRIVEWAY WHEN SUDDENLY MY SUNROOF EXPLODED. THE SUNROOF GLASS WAS CLOSED BUT THE ROOF WAS OPEN. MOST OF THE GLASS ENDED UP OUTSIDE THE CAR. IT WAS LIKE IT EXPLODED FROM THE INSIDE OUT. THE GLASS ON THE EDGES WAS BENT UPWARDS. IT WAS LIGHTLY RAINING AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS APPROXIMATELY 60 DEGREES. THANKFULLY I WASN'T DRIVING BECAUSE THIS COULD HAVE CAUSED A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. I HAVE CONTACTED NISSAN CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND THEY CLAIM THEY HAVE NOT HEARD OF THIS HAPPENING BEFORE. THE INTERNET SAYS OTHERWISE.....

Summary of Complaint

I was about to get on a highway, so before I got on the highway I heard a loud blast overhead, like a loud boom sound. It was very scary that I most lost control. All that I felt was glass all over me and in the car. The panoramic roof just shattered by itself. It felt like a pressure blew the top off. A very scary experience that I don’t know what would have happened if I was on high speed on the highway, I might have lost control. I managed to close the sunroof cover and slowly made it to the next exit.

Summary of Complaint

My cruise control stopped working. I took it to my Nissan dealer where I purchased the car. They advised me I needed a new transmission. However I had just put a new transmission in 3 years prior. I have never had this issue with any other vehicle. I spoke with Nissan consumer affairs who admitted there was an issue with their CVT. But they refused to do anything about it. They stated there is no recall and it’s my responsibility to fix it. The fix is not cheap as the CVT requires a brand new transmission that must be programmed specifically to your vehicle. They were not taking responsibility for the issue that they know is a problem. It is very frustrating to own a vehicle with a company who refuses to fix something they know is wrong. They are not the only ones who mentioned there is an issue. The dealer themselves have seen this numerous times and advised Nissan won’t do anything to make it right with any consumers. This poses a safety hazard in my eyes. Had this gone out at 60 mph it would not shift and could have been a significant safety risk. I am now out over $5,000 to fix the transmission. This is an unacceptable practice and they should be held responsible for continuing the this do nothing and not be forced to make a change in their production and design.

THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG LIGHT COMES ON EACH TIME MY MOTHER IS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. IT STAYS LIGHTS FOR PERIODS OF TIME. AT TIMES THE LIGHT GOES OFF, THEN BACK ON. I HAVE BROUGHT IT TO AN AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR SHOP AND HAVE NOTIFIED FIDELITY WARRANTY SERVICES SINCE WE PURCHASED THE ROYAL PROTECTION PLAN WHICH IS STILL IN EFFECT UNTIL NOVEMBER 2021. I AM AFRAID THAT IF MY MOTHER IS IN THE FRONT SEAT AND THE LIGHT SENSOR IS NOT FIXED AND WE ARE IN A FRONT IMPACT ACCIDENT SHE WILL BE INJURED.

WE HAVE REPLACED WITH TOP OF THE LINE BULBS & IT HASN'T HELPED AT ALL. THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE & NISSAN NEEDS TO ADDRESS THIS BEFORE PEOPLE ARE INJURED BECAUSE THEY CAN'T SEE WELL ENOUGH TO DRIVE. ANOTHER ISSUE WITH MY CAR IS AIRBAGS NOT DEPLOYING AS THEY SHOULD. MY CAR COLLIDED WITH A 18-WHEELER ON THE INTERSTATE. THE 18-WHEELER CAME OVER INTO MY LANE LATCHING ONTO THE PASSENGER SIDE OF MY CAR. ONCE I BROKE LOOSE FROM THE TRUCK, I VEERED INTO THE MEDIAN HITTING 2 ROAD SIGNS HEAD ON & MY AIR BAGS NEVER DEPLOYED. THIS HAS TO BE A DEFECT THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED AS WELL.

I HAD FULLY MADE MY STOP AT THE RED LIGHT, AND I NOTICED WHEN ACCELERATING TO MAKE A LEFT TURN THE STEERING HAD BECOME STIFF LIKE I WAS DRIVING WITHOUT POWER STEERING. I FOUND A PLACE TO PULL OVER TO CHECK MY POWER STEERING LEVELS, AND THE FLUID WAS AT THE CORRECT LEVEL. I TURNED THE CAR BACK ON, AND EVERYTHING STARTS FINE, BUT THE VEHICLE CONTINUES TO HAVE STEERING ISSUES. I'M QUESTIONING IF THE PUMP FAILED AND THE FLUIDS NOT MOVING THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM. MY 2014 NISSAN MAXIMA IS ONLY AT 33K MILES, AND I FIND IT VERY CONCERNING IF A STEERING COMPONENT FAILED THIS QUICKLY IN ITS LIFETIME.

NISSAN CVT TRANSMISSION ON 12/05/2018, ABOUT 10:00AM- TOOK MY VEHICLE IN FOR OIL CHANGE AND VIBRATING AND SHAKING OF CAR. PAID ABOUT $350.00 FOR OIL CHANGE AND TRANSMISSION FLUSH AND CHANGE (WHICH THE SERVICE DEPT. SAID I NEEDED FOR TRANSMISSION). THAT SAME DAY ABOUT 5:00PM WHILE ON THE FREEWAY MY CAR STOPPED ACCELERATING, STARTING SHAKING AND I WAS ABLE TO PULL OVER GRADUALLY TO THE SIDE OF THE FREEWAY. I GOT IT TOWED BACK TO THE SAME NISSAN SERVICE CENTER FOR THEM TO EVALUATE. ON THE NEXT DAY THE SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE SAYS THE CAR NEEDS A NEW TRANSMISSION AND THE WARRANTY HAS EXPIRED. NISSAN HAS COME BACK TO SAY THAT THEY WILL PAY FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION MINUS 20%, WHICH WILL BE $800.00 BUT THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO PAY BACK THE 308.00 THEY CHARGED FOR THE TRANSMISSION WORK DONE THE FOLLOWING DAY. I HAVE JUST BEGAN TO REALIZE HOW WIDESPREAD A PROBLEM THIS NISSAN CVT TRANSMISSION IS. I WAS SO VERY FORTUNATE THAT I WAS ABLE TO GET TO THE SIDE OF THE FREEWAY SAFELY.

RAN DIAGNOSTIC, P1778 CODE FOR TRANSMISSION STEP MOTOR REPLACEMENT. REPLACED THIS PART AND TRANSMISSION STILL GIVING ISSUES. MY CAR HAS STALLED ON ME SEVERAL TIMES ON THE HIGHWAY WITH MY FAMILY IN THE CAR, VERY HAZARDOUS. THE TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT INTO GEAR PROPERLY, WONT PICK UP ON SPEED UNTIL LATE , CAUSING RPMS TO RISE DRAMATICALLY. I'VE READ ONLINE IN COUNTLESS POSTS THAT THE CVT TRANSMISSION IN NISSANS ARE TERRIBLE. THIS IS A NISSAN ISSUE AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. VERY UNSAFE FOR NISSAN DRIVERS WITH CVT TRANSMISSION. I CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION AND I FEEL THAT NISSAN SHOULD HONOR A TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT FOR ALL WHO HAVE COME VICTIM TO THEIR FAULTY CVT TRANSMISSIONS. THESE FAULTY ISSUES POSE A THREAT TO THE DRIVERS, PASSENGERS, AND ALL WHO USE THE ROADS FOR DRIVING, PEDESTRIAN WALKING AND DRIVING ON HIGHWAYS. *TR

MY 2014 NISSAN MAXIMA WITH MY FAMILY AND MYSELF INSIDE WERE IN A NEAR DEATH SITUATION WHEN THE CAR DID NOT HAVE POWER TO CROSS TRAIN TRACKS THAT WENT ACROSS THE ROAD. WE HEARD THE TRAIN COMING AND THE ONLY REASON WE ESCAPED DEATH WAS BECAUSE OF A MAN IN A PICKUP TRUCK IN BACK OF US OBSERVED THE SITUATION AND QUICKLY PUSHED THE CAR OVER THE TRACKS AND OUT OF THE WAY JUST BEFORE THE TRAIN QUICKLY PASSED THROUGH. I LATER FOUND OUT FROM THE DEALERSHIP THAT THE NISSAN CVT TRANSMISSION FAILED AND THAT WAS WHY THE CAR DIDN'T HAVE THE POWER TO CROSS THE TRAIN TRACKS. THEY ALSO SAID THAT THE CVT TRANSMISSION REPAIR WOULD COST ME $5000.00 AND THAT THE REPAIR WASN'T COVERED UNDER ANY CVT TRANSMISSION WARRANTY.
