VIN: 5N1AR18U35C****

Summary of Complaint

TRANSMISSION FAILED AT INTERSECTION LEAVING VEHICLE UNABLE TO MOVE. PROBLEM WAS CAUSED BY RADIATOR FLUID MIXING WITH TRANSMISSION FLUID. I CONTACTED NISSAN ABOUT THE ISSUE AND THEY DENIED ANY CLAIM FOR REPAIRS. NISSAN HAS KNOWN ABOUT THE ISSUE AND SETTLED THE CLAIMS FOR A SMALL NUMBER OF PEOPLE. THEY MADE IT BASICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO RECOVER ANY DAMAGES BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE A DEDUCTIBLE OF $3000 BEFORE THEY PAY ANYTHING. THEY ALSO WILL NOT COVER ANYTHING ABOVE 100,000 MILES. *TR

SUDDEN JERKING IN THE VEHICLE WHEN TRAVELING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS.

NOTHING HAPPENED BEFORE, BUT THE TRANSMISSION STARTED SLIPPING 5TH GEAR AND NO GOING INTO IT, NOW 4 AND THIRD FINALLY JUST STOPPED MOVING... REPAIR COST IS GOING TO BE 6500$ AT THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP AND THEY WILL NOT ADMIT A KNOWN ISSUE.... *TR

VIN: 5N1AR18U35C****

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING TOWARDS RENO, NV AND EVERY TIME THERE IS AN UPHILL ROADWAY THE ENGINE WOULD REV UP AND THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS TO ANOTHER GEAR,I WOULD FEEL A THUMPING SOUND AND ON EVERY 3 TO 6 MILES OF DRIVING THE VEHICLE WOULD FEEL LIKE IT IS RUNNING ON AN UNPAVED ROAD. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THAT IS WHEN THEY INFORMED ME THAT MY TRANSMISSION FLUID AND ENGINE COOLANT ARE MIXING. NOT TO MENTION THAT MY FSR IS NO LONGER FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. IT TURNED OUT THAT THE FSR (FUEL SENSOR RELAY) IS NOT ON THE RECALL LIST UNLESS IT IS A 2006 AND UP. I DON'T MIND THE FSR, BECAUSE I CAN WORK ON THIS BUT THE COOLANT AND TRANNY FLUID MIXTURE SHOULD BE A RECALL SINCE A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE. *JB

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING ON THE WAY TO PICK UP MY KIDS, MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHTED ON. THEN AT A TRAFFIC STOP LIGHT, WHEN THE LIGHTS TURN GREEN FOR GO, I DID RELEASE MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE BUT NO MOVEMENT ON THE CAR. I PRESS ON THE ACCELERATOR BUT HESITANT AND JERKING. AFTER A WHILE IT MOVES GRADUALLY. I STRAIGHT AWAY WENT TO THE DEALER TO HAVE IT CHECK. THEY DID PUT A SMALL INSTRUMENT TO CHECK AND I HEARD HIM ASK ANOTHER GUY WHAT 1754 IS. AFTER A WHILE HE CAME TO ME AND SAID THAT HE HAD THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHTED OFF AND IF IT LIGHTS ON AGAIN, IT MIGHT BE A COSTLY REPAIR. I ASKED HIM WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM. HE SAID MOST PROBABLY THE TRANSMISSION. THEN A WEEK LATER, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ON AGAIN, AND I TRIED A SECOND OPINION, SO I WENT TO A NON DEALER TRANSMISSION SHOP. HE ASKED ME WHAT'S WRONG. I TOLD HIM I HAD A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON AND THERE IS HESITATION ON THE VEHICLE AFTER A STOP. HE ASKED FOR THE YEAR OF THE VEHICLE. THE MOMENT I SAID 2005, HE KNOWS ALREADY THE PROBLEM. HE HAD PREVIOUS CASES OF THE SAME YEAR AND MODEL OF MY CAR. HE STILL DID SOME CHECKING AND HE WAS NOT WRONG. HE TOLD ME ITS A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM. HE SAID COOLANT FROM THE RADIATOR IS LEAKING TO THE TRANSMISSION. THIS IS CAUSING DAMAGED TO THE TRANSMISSION. HE SAID HE HAD TO REBUILT THE TRANSMISSION TO THE TUNE OF 4500. ITS A HUGE AMOUNT FOR REPAIR. ITS THE ONLY VEHICLE WE USE FOR WORK AND FOR KIDS GOING TO SCHOOL. WITH AN UNSAFE VEHICLE LIKE THIS, YOU ARE PUTTING YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY IN GRAVE DANGER. *TR

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING A NORMAL HWY SPEEDS, THE CAR SUDDENLY LOST ALL FORWARD SPEED AND BEGAN TO SLOW. ENGINE CONTINUED TO RUN, ALTHOUGH, THERE WAS NO PROPULSION TO THE REAR WHEELS. HAD PATHFINDER TOWED TO NISSAN DEALER ( BANKSTON LEWISVILLE, TX) WHERE IS WAS DETERMINED THAT THIS WAS A RADIATOR/TRANSMISSION CONTAMINATION FAILURE. OPENED CASE NUMBER WITH NISSAN REQUESTING ASSISTANCE WITH REPAIR. AWAITING A RESPONSE, HOWEVER, WAS TOLD THAT "IT DID NOT LOOK GOOD" AS WE DO NOT HAVE A LOT OF SERVICE HISTORY WITH THE DEALERSHIP. I'VE OWNED 8 NISSANS OVER THE PAST 20 YEARS AND OBVIOUSLY LOYAL TO THE BRAND. THIS IS A DANGEROUS FAILURE, OCCURS WITHOUT WARNING AND COULD POTENTIALLY BE DEADLY. *TR
