ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

4/13/2016 - OPELOUSAS, LA
AT 12,500 MILES I WAS DRIVING AND IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE PUT IT IN NEUTRAL. TOWED THE CAR TO THE DEALER AND THEY CHANGED THE TRANSMISSION. AT 34,000 MILES, IT STARTED KNOCKING AND SMOKING WHEN YOU FIRST START IT. BROUGHT TO DEALER AND THE GAS WAS MIXING WITH THE OIL. MY CLAIM WAS DENIED SO I HAD TO REPLACE THE ENGINE. NOW AT 110,000 MILES THE CAR WON'T SHIFT OUT OF FIRST GEAR. I'M A SINGLE MOTHER AND DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE MONEY TO SINK INTO THIS LEMON.

THE CONTACT OWNS A 2006 NISSAN MAXIMA. WHILE ATTEMPTING TO START THE VEHICLE, IT FAILED TO START. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE VEHICLE WOULD EVENTUALLY START AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE VEHICLE WOULD ALSO JOLT FORWARD WHEN SWITCHING GEARS AND STALL. THE TCS ENGINE SLIP INDICATOR ILLUMINATED ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER, BUT WAS NOT DIAGNOSED NOR REPAIRED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS MADE AWARE OF THE FAILURE. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 115,000.

POWER TRAIN

3/17/2016 - CLINTON, TN
ONCE THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN FOR 30 MINUTES OR MORE, AFTER A STOP FOR A RED LIGHT OR STOP SIGN THE TRANSMISSION WILL "JUMP" AS IT SHIFTS TO THE NEXT HIGHER GEAR USUALLY WHEN JUST AT. 20 -30 MILES AN HOUR. MY CAR HAS MILEAGE OF 106,000 AND HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR APPROX. 6 MONTHS OFF & ON. ITS SELDOM THAT I DRIVE IT ANY SIGNIFICANT DISTANCE & THAT'S WHEN IT IS NOTICED.

POWER TRAIN

3/15/2016 - JACKSONVILLE, FL
DRIVING DOWN THE INTERSTATE, MERGING INTO THE EXIT LANE, I PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL TO SLOW DOWN TO THE LIGHT, AS SOON AS I TAP THE GAS PEDAL THE CAR JUMPS OUT OF GEAR AND REVS TO APPROXIMATELY 6,000 RPM. CAR THEN VIOLENTLY KICKS BACK INTO GEAR, MORE THAN LIKELY DAMAGING ALL MOTOR MOUNTS AND TRANSMISSION MOUNTS. IT DOES THE SAME THING WHEN DRIVING AROUND SMALL BENDS AND TAKING TURNS. IT PUT MY CAR INTO LIMP MODE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ROUGHLY THE PAST 6 MONTHS

3/10/2016 - LENA, MS
GOT THE CAR IN 2012 AND WAS DOING FINE FOR A WHILE UNTIL THE END OF 2014. CAR HAD STARTED JERKING WHEN SWITCHING BETWEEN PARK, DRIVE, AND REVERSE AND WOULD ALSO STALL IN BETWEEN. BY FEBRUARY, THE CAR STARTED REVVING AND STALLING DURING STOPS AND WAS BAD WHEN I WAS IN TRAFFIC. I HAD TO TRY AND GET ABOVE 25 MPH BECAUSE BELOW THAT, THE CAR WOULD SERIOUSLY ACT UP. EVENTUALLY STOPPED DRIVING UNTIL THIS YEAR WHEN I TOOK IT TO A SHOP TO GET CHECKED OUT. WHILE DRIVING THERE THE CAR REVVED AND STALL AT EVERY LIGHT AND I ALMOST HIT THE BACK OF A CAR WHEN IT DECIDED TO REV AT A 4 WAY STOP ON A HILL. IT'S EITHER JERKING,STALLING, OR REVVING. I KNOW IT'S A TRANSMISSION ISSUE AND WILL BE A COSTLY FIX. I HONESTLY DON'T HAVE THE MONEY FOR IT. IN BETWEEN ALL THIS, THE PAINT HAS SEVERELY STARTED TO FADE AND I HAVE NOTICED OTHER NISSANS IN MY AREA GOING THROUGH THE SAME ISSUES. ALSO, WHY DOES THE AIRBAG LIGHT COME ON EVEN SOMEONE IS SITTING IN THE PASSENGER SEAT? THE CAR JUST HAS BEEN ONE ISSUE AFTER THE OTHER. WILL NOT BE PURCHASING ANOTHER NISSAN.
