POWER TRAIN

8/18/2014 - COLUMBUS, OH
AS THE SPEED REDUCES BELOW 25 MPH, WHEN YOU LEAVE GAS PEDAL, EVEN ON A LEVEL ROAD, THE ENGINE RPM APPEARS TO FALL AT OR BELOW 1000 RPM AND THEN SHOOTS UP TO 1300 RPM. IT THEN STRUGGLES TO FIND THE CORRECT GEAR RATIO AND FLUCTUATES BETWEEN 1000-1500 RPM WITHOUT ANY INTERVENTION. THIS CREATES A JERKY BEHAVIOR AND ACCELERATION WHEN NONE INTENDED ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE INTENDS TO SLOW DOWN THE VEHICLE. THERE IS ALMOST ZERO ENGINE ASSIST FOR DECELERATION. INSTEAD OF DROPPING TO AROUND 1000 OR LOWER AND THEN STAYING STEADY THERE, IT DROPS AND JUMPS UP WHICH CREATES DANGEROUS DRIVING SITUATION ESPECIALLY IN RAIN AND SNOW. RPM APPEARED TO DROP AND THEN SHOOT TO STAY ABOVE 1000 RPM INSTEAD OF GRADUALLY DROPPING AND STAYING STEADY. TOOK TO THE DEALER AND HE REPRODUCED THE ISSUE. HOWEVER, OTHER ALTIMA IN INVENTORY SHOWED SIMILAR BEHAVIOR AND THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED. NISSAN WAS CONTACTED AND WAS TOLD THIS IS A "FEATURE". THIS IS NOT RIGHT - IN FACT THERE HAVE BEEN SIMILAR REPORTS AS FAR BACK AS 2007 ALTIMAS - AND MUST BE CORRECTED. IT APPEARS THAT THEY FIXED AN ISSUE WITH STALLING VEHICLES IN 2013 ALTIMAS AND INTRODUCED NEW PROBLEM WHERE YOU HAVE TO HIT THE BRAKES MANY TIMES TO ACHIEVE STABLE IDLE SPEED OF 750 RPM. THIS IS WEARING MY BRAKES PREMATURELY AND IS A HAZARD IN RAIN AND SNOW WHEN THE VEHICLE ACCELERATES WITHOUT ANY INTERVENTION WHEN IT SHOULD REALLY DECELERATE. I CAN NOT OVERSTATE THE RISK WHEN ONE HAS TO DRIVE 10 MPH OR 20 MPH IN SNOW...
