The Pedals Are Positioned Too Close Together. My Husband Complained Of This A Few Weeks Ago When He Drove My Car Because His Shoe Got Caught On The Brake Pedal As He Was Lifting His Foot Off The Gas Pedal. Then, Yesterday, The Same Thing Happened To Me. I Nearly Drove My Car Through The Front Of The Daycare Where I Was Dropping Off My Son. I Am Now Aware Of How Extra-cautious I Have To Be When Driving My Car So This Doesn’t Happen Again. This Has Never Happened To Me With Any Other Car. I’ve Been Driving For 25 Years! *tr

Maybe A Week After Purchasing A 2012 nissan altima On July 25, 2012, I Heard Squeaking Sounds When Braking. I Returned To The Dealership And Was Given A Letter From The Mechanic Stating That It Is Normal For The Brakes To Squeak Occasionally Because The Brakes A Not Made With The Same Materials Used In The Past. On Oct 29, 2012, I Returned To The Dealership Because The Noise Increased When Stopping And I Started To Hear Scrubbing When Stopping. The Mechanic Checked My Car For The 2nd Time And Only Replaced Brake Padding In The Front And Shaved One Rotor. Now On Nov.14, 2012, The Noise Is Continuing And The Scrubbing Sound Is Still There. I Think The Manufacturer Should Pay To Replace My Brakes And Rotors Because The Was Car New When I Left The Dealership And I Should Not Have This Problem. It Sounds Dangerous And Every Time I Drive My Car I Am Afraid It My Not Stop When I Brake To Stop. *tr

Brake Failure Due To 4 Seized Brake Calipers. My Wife Was Unable To Stop Completely At A Busy Intersection Entering Oncoming Traffic Lanes. No Cars Were Present Or She Would Have Been Hit, But Very Scary For My Wife. All Four Rotors Showed Only A Thin Stripe Of Pad Contact Down The Middle Of The Rotor. Took Car To Dealership Was Told This Was Normal And Not Covered Under The Warranty Due To Corrosion Of There Calipers. Car Had Been In There Repair Shop 7 Months Earlier. Rotor Deglazing Was Recommended But Nothing Was Said About The Brakes Calipers Seizing And Brake Failure. Deglazing Of Rotors Would Have Been At My Expense And I Felt This Was The Dealerships Responsibility If There Was A Safety Issue. Being Unaware Of The Severity Of This “common” Problem I Elected To Pass. Never Did Anybody State That This Could Lead To Total Brake Failure And Was Anything But Deglazing Of The Rotors, A Dealer Add On Expense. Spoke To My Local Mechanic And He Thought It Was Unnecessary. I Had To Replace All For Rotors And Pads, They Cleaned Up The Calipers And Said They Should Be Fine. How Will I Know If They Are Fine Or Not? Must I Have Brake Failure Again To Find Out They Were Wrong? I Do Not Trust The Brakes On This Vehicle, They Should Not Seize Up On A 2 1/2 Yr Old Car Thats Kept In A Heated Garage Daily. They Stated It Was Because Of My Location, Upstate New York, And They Could Not Guarantee The Brakes System In Such A Harsh Environment. I Have Never Heard Of Brakes Rusting And Seizing Before On Any Vehicle This New With Such Few Miles. The Manufacturer Uses Inferior Materials To Build Its Parts And Its The Consumers Responsibility To Be Aware Of This? I Had No Idea That There Brake Calipers Seizing Due To Driving In The Winter Was A “common” Safety Issue. How Can This Be My Responsibility To Know That They Have A Problem With There Braking System?
