There Is An Intermittent Passenger Airbag Detection Issue With 2013 nissan altima 2.5 Sv. There Were In Multiple Times When A Full Grown Person(weight > 150lbs) Sitting On The Passenger Side, While Car Was Being Driven, ‘passenger Side Air Bag Off’ Indicator Would Turn On, Indicating That Car Is Not Detecting Anyone In The Front Passenger Side And In Result Airbags Were Turned Off. This Warning Indication Stayed On Throughout Our Drive And Sometimes Turned Off After 10-15 Minutes Of Drive And In Other Occasions It Didn’t Turn Off At All Until Car Was Turned Off. If This Was Just A Feature Issue Then Much Lower Priority Should Been Assigned But It Is A Major Safety Issue/concern And I Request An Investigation. A Blatant Disregard From The Manufacturer Of This Issue May Result In Death, Injury And Property Damage. I Request The Help Of Nhtsa For Quick And Thorough Investigation On This Matter. Thank You! *tr

I Was Driving A Brand-new, nissan altima Rental Car On A Business Trip. After I Returned To My Hotel One Afternoon, I Forgot To Turn The Engine Off. This Vehicle Has A Key Fob And A “start/stop” Button Only. There Is No Metal Key. After I Exited The Vehicle, I Noticed That The Horn Did Not Honk When I Locked The Vehicle With The Key Fob. The Trunk Release Did Not Automatically Open When I Used The Key Fob. I Manually Pressed A Button Under The Trunk Lid To Retrieve My Bag. The Next Morning, I Noticed Steam And Water Coming Out Of The Exhaust Tailpipes. (it Was App. 34 Degrees That Morning.) I Discovered That The Engine Was Still Running, And The Car Used App. 3/8s Of A Tank Of Gasoline Overnight. My Concern Is That A Car Like This Could Be Driven Into A Garage With The Engine Left On, And Then The Occupants Of The Residence Could Get Carbon Monoxide Poisoning From The Exhaust Fumes. This Vehicle Needs Some Time Of Warning Bell, Chime, Etc. To Remind The Driver That The Engine Is Still Running If They Open The Driver’s Side Door And/or Exit The Vehicle. Thank-you. *tr

Well My Blind Spot Monitoring System And Lane Detection System Both Do Not Work Correctly. My Bsm Will Light Up When There Is Not A Car There As Well As Not Light Up When There Is A Car There. This Happens Very Often But Not Everytime. When It Rains It Happens Almost Everytime. I Took It In To The Dealer And They Told Me If You Read The Owners Manual It Says That This May Not Work Properly. Really? I Bought Knowing The Salesman Told Me This Feature Works Not That It Does Not Work! They Didn’t Even Try To Diagnose It. Very Sad. And Same With The Lds Where It Will Beep And Blink And I Am Not Even Out Of My Lan. Again This Happens When It Is Dry, Wet, Sunny, Cloudy, Snowing. There Is Something Wrong And nissan Does Not Want To Fix It Even Though The Customers Have Spent Alot Of Money On These Features! *tr

Well I Noticed That My Passenger Airbag Off Light Was On With A Passenger Sitting In The Vehicle, It Has Done This Many Times, And I Even Have A Video Of Me Sitting In It And I Weight 180lbs With The Light On While The Car Is Being Driven. I Have Taken It In To The Dealership 3 Different Times For This Problem. Each Time They Have Told Me That They Have Reset The Seat. It Is Still Doing It, The Video Came After The Third Time And Just 3 Days Ago. I Called nissan About This And My Other Big Problems And They Have Told Me That I Should Take It To Another Dealer. There Is A Recall On This Through nissan And Yet I Have Brought It In 3 Separate Times And They Still Keep Telling Me Its Ok. No Sir. nissan Seems To Just Not Care I Have Asked Them Many Times For A nissan Rep To Come Out And Look At My Car And They Just Keep Telling Me To Take It To A Different Dealer. The Problem Is All The nissan Dealers Around Me Are Owned And Managed By The Same Company. And nissan Will Not Help Me With A Loaner Car If I Drive It 200 Miles Away To The Next Dealer. So I Am Just Screwed. Very Upset With How nissan Runs Their Business. This Is My First And Last nissan Ever! *tr

After A Few Weeks Of Owning This New Car, The Brake Light Came On And Stayed Onwhile I Was Driving. I Started Hearing Squealing And Thunking Coming From My Brakes. These Are New And On A New Car, The Car Just Now Has 6000 Miles On It And It Still Should Not Makes These Sounds. I Took It In They Did Something To Clear The Brake Light And Said The Noises Are Normal. This Should Not Be Making All Of These Different Noises. nissan Needs To Find The Problems Of Their Cars And Fix Them! I Feel Like There Is Something Still Wrong But The Dealership Does Not Want To Look Any Further. *tr

I Love The Fact That My Car Has The Heated Steering Wheel And For Paying So Much For This Vehicle To Have This Wonderful Feature You Would Expect It To Work. Well It Did For The First Month, But I Used It Alot, Usually On Highway Trips When It Would Cut Off I Would Turn It Back On, Then About A Month After That I Noticed It Was Only Getting Warm At The Top Of The Steering Wheel And Not The Rest. Then A Little Later It Doesn’t Even Get Warm Anymore. I Have Taken It To Service At Least 2 Different Times, And They Just Tell Me That It Is Normal. But In The Armada, And Maxima They Loaned Me While My Car Was In The Shop Those Seemed To Work Fine. Their Answer To That Is That In The altima It Reads The Temperature Inside The Car To Determine How Hot It Gets. This Is Not The Problem Because In March Of 2013 Here In Northern Va We Had A Big Snowfall. I Went To My Car At 3:40 Am The Day Of The Snowfall, And Started It. It Was About 28 Degrees Outside, And The Inside Of The Car Felt The Same. I Turn On The Heated Steering It I Never Felt It The Entire 30 Miles I Drove. To Me It Feels Like The Electricity Is Not Getting To Any Or All Of The Heating Element. nissan Says To Take It To Another Dealership, But All The Dealers Around Me Are Owned And Managed By The Same. *tr

The Best I Can Do To Explain The Problem I Am Having With My 2013 altima Is To Compare It To The Jerking You Will Experience In A Stick Shift Vehicle If You Do Not Clutch And Shift Properly Almost Causing The Vehicle To Stop. Once I Was Entering Onto The Highway, The Car Acted As If The Parking Brake Was Applied While Driving. I Took My Car To The Dealer From Which I Purchased It (st.clair Auto Mall), The Mechanic Drove It And Almost Immediately He Experienced The Problem. We Drove Back To The Dealership (service Dept.). He Looked Up Some Information In The Computer, Said Diagnostics Tests Were Ran But The Test(s) Turned Up Nothing. And Also There Were No Lights On The Dash Indicating A Problem. So, For That Reason Nothing Could Be Done. *tr

Safety Concern, Proper Operation Of Air Bags (srs Light On). This Is A Major Safety Concern. One Month After Purchasing A Brand New nissan altima 2013, A Major Light Indicator Came On. This Light Brought Up Concerns. Are The Air Bags Working Properly? Will The Air Bags Deploy Correctly Upon Impact? Are The Air Bags Working At All? Will The Air Bags Deploy While Driving? Will The Air Bags Implode And Affect The Steering Process? Is This An Indication That There Is An Electronic Or electrical Circuit Malfunction?

Re: Keyless Ignition Systems. This Was A Rental Car So I Don’t Know Vin Or Mileage, Or Exact Year. I Rented A Car Last Week In San Diego, My First Experience With Keyless Ignitions. I Only Had The Car For One Day And Was Not Used To This System. Late At Night I Parked Car, Pushed The Ignition To “off” Started To Get Out Of The Car, When Car Started Driving Forward Because I Had Forgotten To Put It In Park. I Was Knocked Down In The Middle Of The Street, It Was Pitch Black Outside, I Had No Idea What Was Happening, Until I Saw The Car Driving Away. I Managed To Chase The Car And Jump Back Inside Before It Hit Anything. However, My Knee Was Torn Up Really Bad, And I Am Still Dealing With The Injury More Than A Week Later. Not Having Any Warning/safety Measure To Let People Know That The Car Is Not In Park, Coupled With A Whisper Quiet Engine, Is A Totally Dangerous Combination, And Clearly Deadly From Many On Line Accounts I Have Read. Don’t Know How This Ridiculous Idea Ever Made It To Factory, Much Less Approved Without Any Warning System In Place. I Hate These Cars And Think They Should Be Recalled. At Least In A Regular Car The Keys Will Not Come Out Of The Ignition Of The Car Is Not In The ‘park’ Position. I Am Lucky The Car Did Not Run Over Me, Or Someone Innocent Bystander. But I Would Imagine There Have Been Many Accidents Like Mine That Ended Much Worse. Like I Said, These Cars Are Dangerous And Should Be Recalled, And This System Should Be Illegal. *tr

I Purchased A 2013 nissan From Bill Seidle’s nissan In Miami Florida. When I Purchased The Car They Told Me The Mileage Was Around 30 Mpg With An Average Of Around 26 Mpg. Months After I Bought The Car I Mentioned To The Dealer That The Car’s Computer Was Saying Around 20 Mpg And They Told Me That I Needed It To Track The Mpg Myself Because The Computer From The Car Is Not Accurate. I Tracked The Miles And The Results Were 20 Mpg. I Took That Car In To The Dealer, I Was Told That They Checked The Car And There Was Nothing Wrong With The Car And That Is The Mileage That I Was Going To Get. I Also Have A Problem With The Electronic Key That On Multiple Times “no Key Detected” Message Comes Up And It Takes Me A While For The Car To Start. Eventually It Turned Out The Battery Was Not Good And It Was Changed. About A Month Later The Same Problem Continued And I Took The Car To The Dealer And They Told Me They Could Not Duplicate The Problem So They Could Not Do Anything About It. This Problems Continues To Occur And Sometimes When The Cars Turns On The Message Stays On For A While. This Problem Does Not Occur All The Time There Is No Consistency. I Now Take Pictures When The Problem Occurs And Are Taking The Car Back To The Dealer. I’m Concern About The Safety Of The Car. *tr

The Problem Is With The A/c Compressor Staying On Even Though I Turn The Defrost Off. Same If I Turn Auto On Then Off. The A/c Light Stays Off, But The A/c Compressor Stays On. The Only Way To Turn The A/c Off Is To Press The A/c Button Twice (once To Turn The Light On, Next To Force The A/c To Go Off). If The Defrost Is Off, Auto Is Off And The A/c Light Is Off, The A/c Compressor Must Turn Off. It Should Not Be A Guessing Game For The Driver To Wonder If The A/c Is Off. I Have Complained About It Before And Been To The Dealer 3 Or More Times About It. There Are Multiple Postings (complaints) About It On The Internet (see One Link Below).

The Dealer Checks Other Same Model Cars And The Problem Is Consistent Amongst All Cars, So He Says “there Is No Problem”. The Dealer Mechanic Agrees With Me That This Is Not How It Should Work, But Since All Other Similar Cars Do The Same Thing, There Is Nothing They Can Do About It. *tr

I Have Had Major Issues With This Vehicle Since The Third Day After Purchase. The Brakes Have Malfunctioned. The Brake Light Would Intermittently Come On And I Had It In Several Times, But The Dealership Could Never “duplicate” Anything. Then The Car Started To Misfire And Emit A Thick Black Smoke From Exhaust. I Contacted The Dealership And At First They Said It Was Normal Because The Car Has A Cvt Transmission. Then They Said Bring It In For Assessment. A Service Technician Test Drove With Me And Experienced This First Hand. I Was Told They Could Not Service It That Day, But To Bring It Back In. When I Took It Back A Week Later, They “could Not Duplicate” The Problem. There Has Been Much Back And Forth. I Asked Them To Buy The Car Back Because The Problems Were Life Threatening. The Car Actually Shut Off On Me, Twice, In Traffic. When I Last Contacted The Dealership, On July 24th, 2014, About The Major Issues I’ve Been Experiencing; The Earliest They Said They Could See Me Would Be On August 11th, 2014. On Yesterday, It Finally Shut Off For Good, In The Middle Of The Interstate. As I Was On A Trip, I Had To Have The Vehicle Towed 125 Miles To My Hometown Dealership At The Cost Of $230.00, Out Of Pocket. The Only Reason I Got It Home That Cheaply Was Because I Have Four Roadside Assistance Coverage Packages And Luckily One Of Them Covered Towing Up To 100 Miles. The Car Is Now Sitting On The Dealership’s Parking Lot.
