nissan Has A Known Problem With The Radiator And Transmission. The Date Listed Is Merely The Date We Discovered The Issue. Before Jan 31, 2012 We Knew Nothing About This Problem. It Is A Safety Issue. You Don’t Know If This Has Happened To Your Truck Until It Overheats And You Find Out The Fluids Have Mixed. Replace The Radiator. Flush The Fluids (3 Or More Times, Since The Fluid Is Now Like Purple Soft Serve Ice Cream). Then The Real Troubles Begin.. It Slips Out Of Gear While Driving At 70 Mph And The Only Option Is To Pull Over, Turn The Truck Off, Remove The Key, Then Restart The Truck And Hope It Works. This Is Really Dangerous On The Highway At The Higher Speeds But Also Unsafe On The Side Roads Or In Stop And Go Traffic. I Take My Kids To School 3.6 Miles Each Way. I Have To Stop And Restart The Truck At Least 3 Times During The Round Trip. Speed Doesn’t Matter. You Stop At A Red Light And Have Know Idea If It Is Going To Go When You Push The Gas Or Not. Pulling Out Into Traffic Can Be Very Dangerous Since You Have To Go And You Find Out You Can’t. There Have Been Several “warranty Extentions” Issued By nissan On Our Truck That We Were Not Aware Of Until After Making The Repairs On Our Own Dime. There Is A “warrany Extention” For This Issue Due To A Class Action Lawsuit But It Does Nothing For A Lot Of The Owners Since Many Are Over The “extention Mileage”. I Try To Never Drive The Truck On Busy Roads Without Shoulders Or Turn Lanes, I Fear Red Lights And Traffic But Stop Signs Are The Worst… I Never Know If The Transmission Is Going To Work Or Not. All Because A Known Faulty Radiator Cracked And Leaked Fluid Into The Transmission. But, I’m Over The Extended Mileage So I’m Expected To Pay Over $5k To Fix A Known Issue. *tr

While Just Merging Onto The Brooklyn Queens Expressway In Brooklyn At Aprox 50 Mph With No Previous Warning Signs To Any Vehicle Problem The Transmission Went Out Of Gear Almost Causing A Rear End Collision. Had To Put Hazards On And Coast Across 3 Lanes Since It Was A Left Lane Merge. Vehicle Slowed To Aprox 20 Mph When Transmission Began To Catch Again And Was Able To Exit Bqe To A Safe Location. Brought To Dealership And Was Diagnosed With Anti Freeze Mixing With Transmission Fluid Which Is A Well Known Problem Now With nissan. It Could Of All Been Avoided If Radiator Was Recalled By nissan Prior. *tr

At About 85,000 Miles On The Truck, While Cruising At Around 40 Mph The Gears Dropped And Stuttered. I Brought It To The Dealership And They Documented My Concern And The Incident. They Did A Diagnostic And Only Came Up With A Fuel Gauge Malfunction And Replace It For $475. At 90,000 Miles I Described The Same Concern, Which They Documented, At A Lower Mph And They Flushed/replaced Trans And Radiator Fluid And Replaced The Radiator Itself For $1600. I Am Now Being Told That The Entire Transmission Needs To Be Replaced For Approximately $6000. nissan Has To Do Something About This, It Stands To Reason That The Cause Of The Transmission Malfunction Is Due To Coolant Getting Into A Lubricant. *tr

My Vehicle Has Developed A Vibration While I Am Driving Which Has Been Very Uncomfortable, However, Nothing Major In The Performance Of The Vehicle, However, Now My Vehicle Has Decided To Randomly Turn Off While Driving. This Is Extremely Dangerous And Could Cause An Accident. I Took It To The nissan Dealership And They Said That They Found Trans Fluid Mixing With Coolant Due To Leaking Trans Cooler In Radiator And The Total Cost Would Come Out To $5,000.

Coming Home From Work The Truck Started To Overheat And The Transmission Started To Skip.

The Coolant Is Mixing With The Transmission Fluid. It’s A Known And Widespread Defect Yet nissan Ignores It. We Paid $14,000 For The Truck Less Than A Year Ago, But nissan Has Squeezed Us Out Of Any Rebate Because The Truck Is Over 100,000 Miles. Now We Have To Pay Another $7,000 To Fix It. That’s Wrong.

Experienced Sudden Jerking When Traveling At Highway Speeds. The Problem Was Diagnosed As A Failed Transmission Cooler Which Allowed Coolant To Mix With The Transmission Fluid, Causing Internal Damage To The Radiator And Transmission. Prior To This, There Was Nothing Amiss With The Operation Of The Vehicle. Apparently This Is Common And Even Though Several Complaints Have Been Filed To Nhtsa, nissan Still Claims That There Is No Defect. Based On The Number Of Complaints Regarding The Exact Same Issue, Please Consider Issuing A Recall. I Just Bought My Truck In Dec. 2012 With About 81,000 Miles And 4 Months And 2,000 Miles Later, I Am On The Hook For This Defect. *tr

Just Bought An 05′ nissan frontier And Upon Getting Onto A Highway I Sped Up To 55-60mph To Feel A Vibration Like Going Over Speed Bumps And A Loss Of Power. It Turns Out That The Intercooler From The Radiator Broke Inside The Transmission Causing A Leak Of Antifreeze Inside The Transmission. Which Caused Something In The Transmission To Breakdown. I Am Not Very Proficient In Car Repair So I Am Not Sure The Exact Part This Causes To Malfunction Inside The Transmission. All I Know Is That I Need A Brand New Transmission And Radiator Which Is Going To Cause $6000.00 At Least. I Also Know That This Is A Widespread Thing And A Lot Of People Are Having This Happen To 05-10 nissan frontiers, Xterras And Pathfinders. This Seems Like A Safety Issues; If I’m On A Highway With My Family And Try To Pass Someone And Experience A Loss Of Power To Speed Up To Pass Them I Could Get In A Head On Collision. *tr

May 07, 2013

My Truck Began Displaying Symptoms Of Catastrophic Transmission Failure. For Example, Gear Slippage And Shuddering As If Rolling Over Rumble Strips. I Took It To A Mechanic And They Found The Coolant Had Transformed Into A Thick Pink Substance. It Was Determined That A Seal Had Failed In The Radiator Causing Coolant To Mix With The Transmission Fluid. This Then Baked Inside The Transmission. We Replaced The Radiator And So Far Have Delayed The Inevitable Replacement Of The Transmission. I Called Local nissan Dealerships And They Know About The Problem But Declined To Offer Significant Information. I Contacted nissan And Because Of Language Barriers, Etc., They Would Not Address My Issue. I Contacted The Bbb And A nissan Representative Eventually Called Me, But In The End Disregarded My Issues With Mock Concern. I Contacted The Mn Attorney General And They Said I Might Take Them To Small Claims Court. It Seems That nissan Has Concocted A Warranty That Only Benefits People Who Experience The Problem At A Very Premature Stage. *tr

My 2005 frontier Has Never Given Me Any Problems Until 2 Days Ago. The Transmission Started Messing Up. I Came Upon A 4 Way Stop & When I Went To Cross The Road It Was Like I Had It In Neutral. I Pulled Over & Stopped Then Tried To Start Again & It Did The Same Thing. I’ve Since Heard & Read About All The Problems Involving The Coolant & Transmission. The Quotes I Have Received To Fix This Are Outrageous. nissan Should Recall These Vehicles Because They Know They Have A Problem With Them. Not A Happy Customer Anymore. *tr

I Started Noticing My Automatic nissan frontier Having Problems Shifting Gears Around November Of 2012. I Eventually Took The Truck Into A Dealership To Take A Look At It After Receiving Paperwork In Regards To A Lawsuit nissan Is Encountering Due To Radiator Leaks. When I Took The Truck Into The Dealer They Told Me This Did Not Have Anything To Do With Radiator Leak. They Quoted Me 5,000 In Repairs. I Did Not Have The Money To Fix The Problem So I Continued To Drive It Until July 12th It Finally Gave Out. I Was Getting Off Of The Freeway And As I Was Stopping At The Red Light To Get Off Of The Freeway The Truck Started To Feel Like It Was Going To Give And It Started Shaking, It Jerked Suddenly And Almost Caused The Car Behind Me To Crash Into My Bumper, I Put A Little More Gas Into The Truck And Made It Into The Parking Lot Of The Nearest Place Around. As I Was Going To Park It Finally Gave Out For Good. I Called A Local Towing Company And They Took The Car Back My House, I Called Up A Mechanic To Come To The House And Examine The Truck And He Advised Me Of The Radiator Leak, The One The nissan Dealership Denied Having. I Am Very Upset That They Lied To Me As Well As nissan Only Extending The Warranty To 80,000 Miles When Most People Are Experiencing This Problem After That. I Have Aprox 118,000 Miles, I Will Look For A Lawyer To File A Class Action Lawsuit Against nissan. *tr

Sudden Loss Of Power/stalling. Check Engine Light Came On As Well As Anti-slip Light. Took Vehicle Same Day To nissan Dealership.

Three Days Later, 8/9, Lost Power At Highway Speed. Radiator And Hoses Leaked And Had To Be Towed To Dealership. Again Dealership Suggested Replacing The Radiator As Well As The Transmission. Replaced Radiator And Hoses, Flushed Transmission Twice. I Plan To Dispose The Truck. There Were No Warning Signs Prior To These Two Incidents.

Driving Home From Post Office In August 2010 Truck Would Not Exceed 35 Mph And Started To Shake Intensely. I Got It Towed To The Dealer Who Diagnosed $9500 To Fix, I Was Over Mileage By About 1500 Miles So All Out Of Pocket. I Parked It Immediately Due To Lack Of Funds, Much Due To A $565 Payment For A $30k New Truck For 5plus Years. nissan North America Denied Me Any Assistance, And Was Actually More Rude Than The Have The Least Bit Of Empathy While I Was Told I Did Reach The Top Person Who Was The Final Say. Many Months Passed And I Replaced The Radiator And Other Things, So It Appeared As I Saved The Trans From Harm By Parking It But Now At 98000 Miles The Service Engine Light Is On Coding An At Brake Issue While The Tranny Is Getting Jumpy And Sluggish Again. Quick Search Returns A Big Expense And Cross Contamination Most Likely Did Occur And Can End Up Costing Me Well Over $40000 In The Long Run For A Midsize Truck That I Have Owned And Took Good Care Of Since New And I Cant Even Get Rid Of It Now Except For Losing Even More Money…very Unhappy As An Owner Of 4 nissans In My Time I Really Expected A Quality Product, Now I Worry About When It Could Go, As I Was Recently Laid Off I Don’t Have The Money For Repairs Or Another Car. *tr

Passing Other Vehicle On I-45 Towards Downtown At Approximately 70 Mph The Engine Experienced Intermittent Stalling. I Was In Danger To Crash Others With Problems To Get Our Of The High Speed Lines. At That Moment The Engine Totally Stalled ,. Finally I Was Able To Reach The Extreme Right Line And Pull Out Waiting For A Complete Stop. I Tried To Restart The Engine But No Help. I Did Not Believe It But Wanted Be Sure That No Lack Of Fuel Was The Origin Because I Already Had The Problem With Fuel Sending Unit Problem Which Do Not Work Properly To Accurately Show How Much Fuel Is On The Fuel Tank. I Got Some Extra Fuel. We Returned And Poured The 1 Gallon Can , Then I Tried To Star The Engine. It Cranked But No Starting. I Called My Insurance Requesting Towing Service . I Tried Two More Times And After That The Engine Started Roughly And Hesitating. After 2 Minutes And Stabilized I Decided To Continue. I Called My Insurance Company To Cancel The Towing Service . Decided To Continue On I-45 But On The Extreme Right Hand Side Line. I Arrived Home With No Other Issues And After Parking On My Driveway, Shut Down The Engine, Then I Tried To Restart It But Nothing . Only Cranking Good But No Starting At All. Finally After Some Like 10 Seconds Of Cranking, The Engine Hesitated But Started. I Took It To Autozone , They Scanned It And Gave Me The Codes P043 For The Failed Fuel Sendin Unit ( Fuel Level Sensor ) And The Code P0335 Which Is Problem With The Circuit Or Signal Or Sensor Crankshaft. I Made Search To Find It And Today, Sunday 29, After Several Hours, Finally Removed And Replaced It. After This The Truck Starts Very Good As Usually Before The Stalling Experiences. Cost Was Some Like 23 Dollar But The Risk In What I Was And Exposing Others Has No Price. Is Necessary To Have A Crash Or Fatal Results For You To Consider This A Recall To Protect Others? *tr

This Issues Is With A 2005 nissan frontier Le. Shuddering At Approximately 40-45 Mph (seems To Be While Shifting) And Sometimes Between 80-85 Mph. The Sound And Feel Of This Shuddering Is Very Similar To Driving Over Highway Hazard Speed Bumps. I Initially Thought That Road Work Had Been Done In Certain Areas And Didn’t Realize The Effect Was Emanating From My Truck. Loss Of Horse Power And Miles Per Gallon Are Also A Symptom Of This Issue. Some Jerking Movements In The Lower Ranges Of Shifting. During The Shuddering It Feels As Though The Tranny Is Trying To Catch The Next Gear. If I Accelerate Or Decelerate Passed The Above Ranges The Shuddering Subsides Till The Next Time I Cross Those Ranges. This Description Is Of The Final Symptoms At Their Very Worst For My Individual Experience, Leading Up To This Points Has Been Gradual Signs Of The Same Issues Beginning At The 50k-60k Mileage Ranges. Even Though, To Date, nissan Corporate Has Known Of This Defect Their Dealerships/service Depts Seemed To Be Completely Unaware Of The Issue Till I Was Well Passed The Extended Warranty (class Action Lawsuit Imposed). At That Point They Became Very Informative Of The Problem And Its Symptoms. On Several Occasions (months If Not Yrs Ago) I Had Mentioned These Symptoms And Was Told Fluids Were Checked And Ok’d By Techs And Service Reps, But Reading Into The Issue Now I Have Learned It Is Very Easy To Spot If You Truly Do Know What You Are Looking For Or Actually Check The Fluids As I Suspect They Never Did. *tr

I Was Driving Along On A Major Interstate At 65 Mph When My Engine Was Revving Up To About 3500 Or 4000 Rpm But My Speed Was Dropping. I Pulled Over To The Right Hand Side Of The Road, Stopped And Turned The Vehicle Off. Had I Not Been In The Right Lane Of The Major Interstate When Traffic Was Very Light, I Could Have Had A Major Accident. Everything Seemed Normal Except The Low Coolant Level In The Reservoir Bottle. There Did Not Appear To Be Any Problems With The Engine So Then I Placed The Truck Into Drive And Moved The Vehicle Forward. As The Vehicle Picked Up Speed And At About The 35 To 40 Mph The Truck Engine Would Rev Up But The Transmission Was Slipping And Not Allowing The Truck To Move Any Faster. When I Took The Screw Off The Transmission Dipstick To See That Fluid Level Was Too High For The Proper Level In The Automatic Transmission. Also, I Noticed That The Fluid Had A Greyish Milky Appearance Which Is A Clear Indication Of Contamination With A Water Based Material Such As Engine Coolant.i Find The Fact nissan Clearly Knew That Was A Problem And Failed To Notify Me As The Original Owner Of The Vehicle Annoying. They Would Rather Pay To Have Vehicle Repaired After The Fact Than Take Care Of A Potential Safety Problem Before It Occurs. This Is Extremely Troublesome When A Manufacturer Places Profits And The Bottom Line Ahead Of Customer Safety. Upon Further Research, I Have Learned That I Could Have Replaced The Faulty Radiator With Another Product From Koyorad For About $120 Retail And Prevented This Problem. So For A Couple Hundred Dollars, nissan Is Willing To Jeopardize My Safety And All Other nissan Owners Safety. As The National Safety Agency, I Implore You Act Immediately And Order A Recall On These nissan Vehicles Before People Get Hurt. It Is Your Duty To Protect The People Of The Nation From Safety Issues When Manufacturers Fail To Do So. *tr

I Was At A Stop Light And When It Turned Green My Truck Felt Like It Was Stuck In Neutral And Wouldn’t Get Into Gear. With Hesitation, It Finally Jumped Into Gear But Was Very Sluggish With Hardly Any Power. It Was Quite Dangerous With A Line Of Vehicles Behind Me I Thought I Was Going To Get Rear-ended. Thankfully I Was Only 2 Minutes From My Office Where I Was Able To Pull In The Parking Lot And Unload My Two Children And Call My Wife To Pick Us Up. I Had To Have My Car Sit There Over The Weekend Because I Didn’t Feel Safe Driving It. On The Following Monday I Had It Towed To A Transmission Repair Shop Where They Diagnosed It As A Cracked Radiator Head With Coolant Leaking Into The Transmission Causing This Failure. I Then Had It Towed Again To The nissan Dealership Where They Diagnosed It And Confirmed The First Diagnosis. They Said Unfortunately I Was Over The Mileage And To Call The National nissan Dealership And Petition For Assistance. After Looking Up All The Information I Find It Discerning That nissan Hasn’t Done The Right Thing And Recalled This To Make It Right. *tr

I Purchased A Used 2005 nissan frontier Se Crew Cab With 86,000 Miles For $13,300 November 29th 2013. No Warning Or Indication That This Vehicle Was Part Of A Class Action Lawsuit Over The Radiator Cooled Transmission Problems. There Was No Indication That This Vehicle May Exhibit Symptoms That Seem Unrelated. On August 6th 2014 At 99,978 Miles I Took My Truck Into A Ase Certified Mechanic To Check Out The Transmission Because Of Shuddering While Shifting. They Ran A Diagnostic, Checked The Fluids, And Sensors. At That Time They Assessed It Was A Dirty Sensor And Sent Me On My Way, And Followed Up After A Few Days. The Vehicle Was Still Having The Same Issues And I Brought It Back In. Upon Further Inspection Of The Transmission Oil There Was A Significant Amount Of Radiator Fluid In There And The Problem Was Identifited. The Current Mileage Is Now 100,600 Miles. I Then Made A Claim To nissan Consumer Affairs Department Regarding The Issue. At This Time I Now Found About The Class Action Lawsuit Settlement And The Extended Warranty. Free Up To 70k Or 80k And A Co-pay After. I Was Never Informed Of This Until Now. Tuesday August 19th I Was Informed That nissan Was Not Responsible For Divulging Any Of This Anyformation To Me And That They Would Not Cover Even The Co-pay. It Is August 20th And My Truck Is Currently At The Ase Certified Mechanic Awaiting The Parts To Come In To Replace My Transmission And Radiator For $5,100 Which Is Much Less Than The nissan Quote Of $6,700. I Now Have A Truck Purchased 9 Months Ago With A $5,100 Mechanic Bill. I Have 28 $400 Payments To Make For The Truck In Addition To Replacing The Poorly Manufactured Transmission And Radiator.
