Summary of Complaint

Nissan has a large issue with the quarter panel moldings. They are a design flaw and come off very easily in car washes or even brushing snow off your car. They will become loose or completely off. If they become loose and you are on the highway like I was and it went flying off the car at highway speed. That clearly is a safety concern that Nissan has been avoiding. However, they are now re-drilling a hole and attaching a new version of the molding. At the owners cost!!! It wasn't an issue but now you are changing the way you attach the new ones? Very odd and they state it's not a safety concern. I beg to differ if you are the car on the highway behind someone's that is loose and comes flying at you. I have read numerous blogs of owners complaining of the same issue. I think we need to get this addressed or see about a class action lawsuit because the way Nissan is reacting to this isn't right.

Summary of Complaint

FOR A FEW MONTHS, WHENEVER I DRIVE ON THE FREEWAY, TYPICALLY FOR MORE THAN 30 MIN, THE SENSOR WITH THE TWO CARS COLLIDING TURNS ON WITH A BEEP SOUND. IT TURNS OFF AFTER I TURN OFF THE CAR BUT WILL TURN ON AFTER DRIVING FOR MORE ON THE FREEWAY. I'VE BEEN DRIVING WITH TURNS OR HILLS AND COULD BE A PART OF IT BUT I'M NOT SURE. AFTER 3 YEARS OF HAVING THE CAR, IT STARTED DOING THAT. THE ABS WAS ALREADY CHANGED AS PART OF A RECALL AND I DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER RECALLS ON MY VEHICLE. I SEE THAT ANOTHER PERSON HAS REPORTED THIS ISSUE AT THE FOLLOWING LINK. I TALKED TO MY DEALER AND THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND A SCANNER DOESN'T PICK UP A CODE SINCE THE CAR HAS TO BE OFF AND THE LIGHT TURNS OFF WHENEVER I TURN OFF THE CAR. I DON'T KNOW WHERE EXACTLY THE ISSUE COULD BE, SENSOR, IF SO WHICH SENSOR, OR A PART. HTTP://WWW.ARFC.ORG/COMPLAINTS/2017/NISSAN/MAXIMA/11202864.ASPX

Summary of Complaint

MY DAUGHTER PARKED MY CAR OUTSIDE AT APPROX. 10:30 P.M. AT 2:05 A.M, IT IGNITED AND EXPLODED. MY STATE FARM INVESTIGATOR SAID IT IGNITED DUE TO ABS ACTUATOR LEAKING BRAKE FLUID ONTO THE CIRCUIT BOARD. I CALLED NISSAN BECAUSE THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THIS BUT THEY CLAIM MY CAR WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. I HAD RECENTLY PURCHASED THE VEHICLE AND ONLY HAD IT LIKE 20 DAYS. CAR WAS TOTALED! *DT CONSUMER STATED FORMER LICENSED CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTOR, AND A CERTIFIED FIRE INVESTIGATOR SPECIALIZING IN FIRE ORIGIN AND CAUSE INVESTIGATION, AND CONSULTATION. HE ALREADY INSPECTED MY CAR AND TOLD ME MY CAR IGNITED AND EXPLODED BECAUSE THE ABS ACTUATOR PUMP LEAKED BRAKE FLUID ONTO THE INTERNAL CIRCUIT BOARD WHICH STARTED THE FIRE. *JB

Summary of Complaint

FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION: FRONT DISTANCE/RADAR SENSOR DEACTIVATES LEAVING THE VEHICLE WITHOUT THE COLLISION SAFETY FEATURES (FORWARD COLLISION WARNING, AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING AND INTELLIGENT CRUISE CONTROL). THE SYSTEM WILL DEACTIVATE EITHER WHILE DRIVING OR WHEN STOPPED AT A LIGHT. THE CAUSE SEEMS TO BE WHEN A VEHICLE IN THE LANE IN FRONT OF MY CAR MOVES INTO OR OUT OF THE LANE, I CHANGE LANES WITH A VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME, OR SOMETIMES WHEN THE VEHICLE IN FRONT HAS MOVED OUT OF RANGE. THE SYSTEM FAULTS ARE MORE PREVALENT DURING RAINING WEATHER, BUT HAS BEEN GETTING WORSE EVEN ON CLEAR SUNNY DAYS. THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP HAS REPLACED THE DISTANCE/RADAR SENSOR AND OTHER ABS MODULES BUT HAS NOT REMEDIED THE SYSTEM FAULTS. THE DEALERSHIP CONTACTED THE NISSAN MOTOR CORPORATION ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT WHICH DOES NOT HAVE A CURRENT FIX FOR THE PROBLEM AND INSTRUCTED THE DEALERSHIP TO 'TELL THE CUSTOMER THAT NISSAN WOULD CONTACT ME ONCE THE PROBLEM WAS FIXED'. AFTER 10 MONTHS, I AM STILL WAITING FOR NISSAN TO CALL, AND TO DELIVER A VERIFIED FIX TO THE COLLISION SAFETY FEATURES ON THE 2017 NISSAN MAXIMA. BY THE WAY, DURING MY MULTIPLE VISITS TO THE DEALERSHIP, I HAVE DRIVEN MULTIPLE LOANER VEHICLES (VARIOUS MODELS) WHICH EXHIBIT THE SAME OR SIMILAR SAFETY ISSUES WITH THE COLLISION SAFETY FEATURES ON NISSAN VEHICLES FROM 2016 THROUGH 2018.
