9/13/2016 - MIDDLETOWN, CT
DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY IN 2015 THE CAR ENGINE WOULD JUST STOP RUNNING. MY HUSBAND CALLED THE TOWING COMPANY AND ME AFTER HE PULLED OVER AFTER TEN MINUTES OR SO AND THE CAR STARTED AGAIN, WE CANCELLED THE TOW AND HE RETURNED HOME BUT NEAR THE HOME THE CAR STALLED OUT AGAIN. WE MANAGED TO GET IT STARTED AGAIN AND DROVE IT TO A FIRESTONE REPAIR SHOP WHICH CHARGED US 280.89 DOLLARS FOR A CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. NISSAN RECALLED A CRANK ANGLE SENSOR FOR THE 2.5 L BUT WE HAVE THE 1.8 L ENGINE.
