Summary of Complaint

UNAVAILABLE FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION. THIS ALERT HAPPENS AT RANDOM TIMES WHEN DRIVING, IT PUTS THE SENSOR IN AN UNAVAILABLE MODE WHICH IN TURNS DOES NOT ALLOW THE SAFETY FUNCTION TO WORK PROPERLY. I HAVE DONE SEARCHES ONLINE AND THIS IS HAPPENING NOT ONLY TO MAXIMAS BUT TO OTHER NISSAN MAKE/MODELS. THIS IS NOT A ONE TIME AND DONE OCCURRENCE IT HAPPENS OFTEN. WHEN WE PURCHASED THE CAR SAFETY WAS ONE OF OUR BIGGEST CONCERNS LEADING US TO BELIEVE NISSAN PROVIDED SAFE CARS, APPARENTLY, THAT IS NOT THE CASE. IN MY OPINION, THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL FIX, THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE!

Summary of Complaint

I BOUGHT THIS CAR FOR MAY WIFE AND LONG TRIPS. IT WAS RATED SATISFACTORY BY CONSUMERS REPORT. I RECEIVED A RECALL FROM NISSAN THAT THE CAR COULD LEAK BRAKE FLUID AND CATCH FIRE. THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIX IT UNTIL SUMMER OF 2020. IN THE MEAN TIME IF THE ABS LIGHT COMES ON I SHOULD PULL IT TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND CALL NISSAN'S TOWING SERVICE THIS MAKES THE CAR UNSUITABLE FOR LONG TRIPS ESPECIALLY IF MY WIFE IS DRIVING. CALLING THE DEALER AND NISSAN AMERICA GOT NO RESPONSE BUT THAT IS THE WAY THINGS ARE. A WOMAN PULLING A CAR TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AT NIGHT IS NOT SAFE.NOT HAVING PARTS TO REPLACE A SAFETY DEFECT IS UNCONSCIONABLE

Summary of Complaint

WHEN IS IN MOTION ON ANY TYPE OF STREET AND ALSO AT A STOP, WHEN GETTING CLOSE TO A VEHICLE OR IF SOMEONE CUTS IN FRONT OF ME, OR IF THERE IS A STREET SIGN DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE CAR, THIS MESSAGE APPEARS VERY BRIEFLY "UNAVAILABLE FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION" WHICH ALSO SHOWS THE ICON OF TWO FRONT END OF CARS COLLIDING. THIS HAPPENED IMMEDIATELY AFTER PUCHASING MY 2018 MAXIMA. THE DEALERSHIP HAS NOT SAID A WORD ABOUT BEING AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM WHEN IT IS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH CERTAIN NISSAN VEHICLES. THE COST TO BRING IT INTO THE DEALERSHIP AND FOR ANY REPAIRS AT THIS POINT WOULD BE OUT OF MY POCKET SINCE THE CAR IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY. THIS FAULTY RADAR COMPROMISES THE EMERGENCY BRAKING SYSTEM IN THE CAR.

Summary of Complaint

I RENTED A NISSAN MAXIMA 2018 FOR A ROAD TRIP. UNFORTUNATELY, I DIDN'T HAVE THE RENTER CAR INSURANCE COVERAGE I DECIDED TO GO WITH MY INSURANCE. HOWEVER, I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE EXPRESS WAY AND I HEARD WHAT SOUNDED LIKE A GUNSHOT THE SUNROOF EXPLODED WITH NO KNOWN EXPLANATION. I WAS DEVASTATED. THERE WERE GLASS FLYING ALL OVER ME AND MY FRIEND WHO WAS WITH ME AT THE TIME. I FEEL LIKE THE CAR WAS A DEFECTIVE CAR AND UNSAFE CAR! THEY ARE NOW MAKING ME RELIABLE IN ALL THE DAMAGE COST TO A VEHICLE THAT I HAD NO CONTROL OVER. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE WERE LAWSUITS FROM NISSAN KNOWN SUNROOF EXPLOSION. I'M NOT SURE IF THERES A RECALL ON THAT PARTICULAR CAR. I NEED SUGGESTIONS AND GUIDANCE. I WISH I NEVER RENTED THAT CAR....

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING IN THE RIGHT LANE ON A FOUR LANE INTERSTATE HIGHWAY WITH GOOD DRIVING CONDITIONS AND A 70 MPH SPEED LIMIT. THE CAR WAS AN ENTERPRISE RENTAL. ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL USES THE ACCELERATOR AND BRAKES TO MAINTAIN A SAFE DISTANCE TO THE CAR AHEAD. IT IS DONE BY SENSING THE DISTANCE TO THE CAR AHEAD AT ABOUT 5 CAR LENGTHS THEN ADJUSTING THE ACCELERATOR AND BRAKES AS NEEDED TO MAINTAIN THIS SPACING AND AVOID A REAR END COLLISION. THE FAULT IS SEEN IN CHANGING LANES. THE CRUISE WAS SET AT 70 MPH AND MY CAR APPROACHED A CAR AHEAD GOING 65 MPH. MY CAR'S ADAPTIVE CRUISE DECELERATED TO 65 MPH. I STEERED INTO THE NEXT LANE, AND THE SPACE WAS NOT THE REQUISITE 5 CAR LENGTHS, THE CAR SENSED A CAR CLOSER THAN 5 LENGTHS REDUCING MY SPEED TO LESS THAN 65 MPH. MY CAR WAS NOW SLOWING DOWN BELOW 65 MPH IN A LANE WITH CARS GOING 70 MPH. I PRESSED ON THE ACCELERATOR, ACCELERATING TO 70 MPH, AVOIDING A REAR END COLLISION. ENTERPRISE DID NOT INFORM ME OF THE ADAPTIVE CRUISE FEATURES AND OPERATION. THERE WAS NO WARNING STICKER IN THE CAR STATING: "TURN OFF CRUISE CONTROL WHEN CHANGING LANES."

Summary of Complaint

DRIVING A RENTED NISSAN MAXIMA I ENCOUNTERED AN ISSUE I AM CONCERNED WITH. WHILE CHANGING A RADIO STATION I ACCIDENTALLY HIT SOMETHING THAT BROUGHT UP A MENU. TRYING TO GET BACK TO THE ORIGINAL SCREEN I FOUND MYSELF ON THE ONGOING LANE. WE SHOULD NOT BE LOOKING AT A SCREEN WHEN DRIVING. IT SHOULD NOT EXIST. I AM VERY CONCERNED WITH THESE UNNECESSARY DEVICES IN CARS THAT CAR COMPANIES PUSH TO MAKE A SALE. I FIND IT A VERY DANGEROUS DISTRACTION.
