NISSAN ALTIMA Power Train problems : 4.
I Have A New 2011 nissan altima Sl Which I Parked In My Church Parking Lot And Went Into Church. At The End Of Mass, As I Was Leaving The Church And Walking Toward The Parking Lot, I Used My Automatic Start…the Car Started And Was Warming Up. As I Approached My Running Car, I Walked In Front Of The Car To Get Around To The Driver’s Side. I Opened The Driver’s Side Door And The Car Accelerated And Took Off Moving Forward With Nobody In It. I Was Holding Onto The Door Chasing After My Car Trying To Jump In And Put My Foot On The Brake To Stop The Car. I Was Unsuccessful As The Car Ran Into Another Car In The Parking Lot And Came To An Abrupt Stop. My Car Was Damaged And Still Running. The Parked Car That It Hit Was Damaged. Upon Impact, I Was Thrown Against The Open Door And Then Onto The Pavement On My Back/right Side. Many People Were Exiting Church And Gathered Around…it Is Fortunate That Nobody Was Hit/run Over By This “run-away” Car. Someone In The Crowd Called The Police And The Ambulance…i Was On The Ground Until Both Arrived. I Was Treated For Muscle And Soft Tissue Strain/trauma/ Spasms. I Missed A Day Of Work. My Insurance Company Investigated The Incident But Was Unable To Accurately Pin Blame On The Responsible Party…they Say There Is Nothing Else They Can Do. The Manufacturer, nissan, Had A Company Called Auto Express Install An Automatic Start Mechanism In The New Car Before Delivering The Car To Me. Right Now, nissan Is Blaming Auto Express For A Faulty “autostart Mechanism” Or Faulty Installation. Auto Express Is Blaming nissan For A Faulty “park-neutral Switch.” Bottom Line: Something Was Defective…and Nobody Wants To Accept Blame. The Park-neutral Switch Has Been Cleared By nissan. The Autostart Has Been Removed By Auto Express. Auto Express Paid For My Car Repairs And Rental Car. Both Companies Are Avoiding Me… *tr

On June 26, 2014 Around 8pm, The Car Began To Abruptly Lose Acceleration. I Was Unable To Accelerate Past 25mph. I Fortunately Made It Home That Evening, But Friday, June 27, 2014; The Vehicle Would Not Accelerate At All. The Engine Would Not Rev In Any Gear And I Was Almost Stranded In The Middle Of I95s During Lunchtime Rush Hour. I Unfortunately Had To Have The Car Towed To Chapman nissan, Where I Was Told That They Would Attempt To Look At My Car On Monday, June 30. I Called On Monday, June 30 And Did Not Receive A Response Until 230pm, Where I Was Told That The Transmission On The Car Needed To Be Replaced. I Immediately Filed A Complaint With nissan The Manufacturer As This Was Extremely Unexpected On A 3 Year Old Vehicle. I Received A Voice Message From A Regional Complaint Manager On July 1 Who Stated That She Would Call Back On July 2. I Have Called Every Business Day Since July 2 With No Adequate Response From nissan. In Doing My Research For nissan altima Transmission Issues, I Discovered That This “was” A Common Issue From 2006-2010, Where They Extended The Warranty On The Transmission To 120k Miles. In 2011, They Reduced The Warranty To 60k Miles. However, What nissan Failed To Do Was Alert Owners, That They Had Issued “service Bulletins” To Their Dealerships Documenting The Exact Problem I Had Experienced On June 27. The Service Bulletin Notices Are: 336174, 361957, Ntb10121, Ntb1012057.

I Was Traveling On The 60w In Moreno Valley. The Temperature Was About 90, It Was Pretty Dry And Hot. I Was Cruising Along At 70 Mph With My Brother, Infant Niece And 10 Year Old Son. When All Of The Sudden The Speed Just Dropped To About 35 Mph, Due To There Not Being Any Warning At All (no Error Lights Or Brake Lights), The Car Behind Us Nearly Rear Ended Us. They Had To Swerve So Suddenly It Almost Caused Them To Crash Into The Car Next To Us. I Ended Up Pulling Over For A Few Minutes, Everything Seemed To Be Fine, So We Continued The Drive Home. About 8 Miles Down The Road, The Car’s Speed Dropped Again. This Time I Was Already In The Slow Lane And Was Able To Avoid Any Near Crashes. I Brought The Car To nissan In Corona Ca. After A Couple Days, They Were Able To Diagnose The Problem Being The Cvt. I Feel There Should Be Some Sort Of A Recall On The altima Cvt. nissan Has Been Aware Of The Potential Problem With The Speed Reducing While The Cvt Goes Into Safe Mode Without Any Warning To The Driver Or Others On The Road. nissan Has Known About This Issue For Quite Some Time, But They Do Not Seem To Care About Their Customer’s Safety And Well-being.
