2014 NISSAN ALTIMA Power Train problems & defects.

NISSAN ALTIMA Power Train problems : 17.

While Attempting To Make A Turn At A Stop Light, Vehicle Began To Shake And Slow Down. It Felt As If It Was Going To Lose power. I Had To Push The Accelerator Harder Than Expected As There Was Another Vehicle Bearing Down On Me In Oncoming Traffic. This Is A New Vehicle. I Brought It To The Dealer And It Appears To Be A Torque Converter Issue. The Shaking Is Not An Issue In Itself, However It Could Lead To Accidents If Someone Is Making A Turn And Needs To Get Out Of Oncoming Traffic As The Transmission Does Not Seem To Respond As Expected. *js

No Unusual Sounds Or Check Engine Noticed With The Following: 1) While Sitting In Cramped Traffic, I Let Off The Brake Pedal To Inch Forward A Few Feet While Riding The Brake. Rms Dropped To 500 For Every Instance And Car Began To Shutter. *tr 2) Coming To Stop Lights/signs. After Traveling A Distance Of About 1/8-1/4 Mile @30-40 Mph, The Deceleration Caused The Rpm To Drop To 500 And The Vehicle Began To Shutter As I Reached The Stopping Point. I Noticed This Every Now And Then. I Cannot Replicate, However I Was Able To Record The Rpm Drop On Two Occasions Within 5 Min Of Each Other. 3) Shuttering That Occurs At Low Speeds Is Felt At Higher Speeds (50+).feel The Shuttering As If Transmission Was Trying To Get To Next Gear, But It Holds Steady And Vibrates. Not Able To Replicate. Very Uncomfortable Ride. 4) At Random Periods Of Just Waiting In The Car With It Running, Will Feel Surge As Rpms Drop For An Instance. Took Vehicle In Based On Complaints.

I Was At An Intersection Preparing To Make A Left Turn. When There Was An Opening In Oncoming Traffic I Pushed The Gas Pedal To Proceed Forward And As I Entered The Intersection The Vehicle Suddenly Dropped The Rpm’s And Acted As If In “limp Mode”. I Pressed The Accelerator To The Floor To Try To Get Out Of The Intersection But The Vehicle Did Not Respond And Only “crawled” Through The Intersection. Because I Could Not Get Out Of The Intersection Due To This Issue Oncoming Traffic Had To Slam On Brakes And Almost Hit Me. Once I Exited The Intersection I Looked For A Place To Pull Over And Stopped About A 500 Yards From The Intersection. I Then Noticed The Vdc Light Was On. I Pressed The Vdc Button And It Lite Up Another Indicator On The Dash Showing Off. I Pressed It Again And The Light Went Out However The Other Vdc Light On The Dash Stayed Illuminated. I Then Turned The Engine Off And Waited A Couple Minutes And When I Started The Vehicle The Other Vdc Light Was Off And The Vehicle Then Drove Normal. I Have Since Noticed A Sound Like The Transmission Spinning Wheni Press The Accelerator. I Was Scared To Drive The Vehicle So I Went Home. I Immediately Took The Vehicle To The nissan Dealer And Had The Service Department Diagnose The Problem But Was Told There Were No “fault Codes” And They Did Not Know Why My New Car When Into “limp Mode” And The Vdc Light Came On. This Car Is New And Now I Am Scared To Drive It! The Service Department At The Dealership Where I Purchased The Vehicle Said If It Happens Again Bring It Back. I Have Found Numerous Problems On Other Internet Car Forums Regarding Other nissan altima‘s With This Same Issue. There Is Even Another One On This Site! This Is A Major Safety Defect And Needs To Be Corrected Asap. I Could Have Been Severely Injured By Oncoming Traffic Because The Vehicle Would Not Respond To The Accelerator No Matter What I Did. *tr

Example 1. While Driving In My Town Home Community And Slightly Turning Right While Going Up A Slightly Inclined Road The Vehicle Begins To Shake Violently And It Seems The Transmission Is Locking Up. Goes Away Either By Removing All Pressure On Accelerator Or If Excessive Accelerator Pressure Is Applied. The Type Of Accelerator Pressure Needed To Stop The Excessive Shaking Would Bring The Vehicle To A Speed That Is Unsafe Relative To Observed Speeds Limits In Community. Example 2. These Exhibited Symptoms Have Also Occurred With An Increasing Frequency While Driving On City Roads In Light To Moderate Traffic: When You Are Coasting Up To Slower Moving Traffic In Front Of You And Then Need To Accelerate As That Traffic Increases Speed, The Car Will Shake Violently. This Occurs Mostly At Speeds Under 30 -35 Mph But Has Been Felt At Speeds As High As 55 Mph. It Feels As Though The Entire Drive Train Of The Vehicle Is Going To Fall Out Of The Car. Vehicle Currently Has 1200 Miles On Odometer And Symptoms Have Been Increasingly Noticeable And Frequent Since 605 Miles On Odometer. Separate Issue: Navigation / Audio System Has Frozen Screen Upon Start Up And Becomes Un Responsive. No Ability To Change Previous Volume Level Of Radio Which May Have Been Left At High Volume Level During Previous Drive. Input Is Not Accepted On Head Unit Or Steering Wheel Controls. Navigation Will Not Initiate. Car Must Be Restarted For System To Reboot And This May Remedy The Problem For One Drive Cycle Or More. Has Occurred 5 Or More Times In First Month Of Ownership. Should A Catastrophic Failure In The Drive Train Occur, I Feel That I Am At Risk Of Serious Personal Injury. Additionally I Am Concerned That Resale Value Of Vehicle Will Be Diminished Due To Damage Caused By Inherent Design Flaw In power Train And In-car Electronics. *tr

I Stopped The Car And Believed I Put It In Park. I Got Out Of The Car–it Did Not Move. I Went To The Rear Passenger Door And Got My Two Year Old Out Of Her Car Seat. I Placed Her Beside The Car And Shut The Rear Door. I Walked Around Behind The Car To The Driver’s Door. I Turned The Car Off Like I Always Do. The Car Shut Off–and Suddenly Without Warning–began Rapidly Moving Down My Driveway. My Baby Was At The Rear Of The Car And She Usually Follows Me. I Ran And Had To Jump In The Moving Car. The Front Left Driver Wheel Nearly Ran Me Over. I Tried To Gain Control Of This Vehicle By Desperately Tried To Stop It. I Was Rolling The Speed Of A Skateboard Released From The Top Of The Driveway. The Steering Wheel Had Locked. I Had To Push Hard On The Brake. I Stopped It And There Were Skidmarks On The Asphalt. I Stopped The Car Before It Slammed Into My Neighbor’s Car. Had I Not Stopped It And Risked Personal Injury There Would Have Been A Crash. I Was Scared To Death To Move And Look. I Thought My Baby Was Dead. I Thought The Car Had Crushed Her. My Neighbor Told Me My Daughter Had Been Missed By Inches. When I Looked At The Gearshift, It Was In D. I Have No Idea How It Shut Off In Drive. It Almost Killed My Daughter, Damaged Personal Property, And I Am Injured. I Called nissan Consumer Affairs: They Stated That This Happens “in All Automatic Cars.” Which That Is False. I Called Back To Tell Them I Had Friends And Family With Varying 2014 Push Button Cars Try And Turn Their Cars Off In D. None Of Them Would Turn Off Unless In Park. What Is Someone Was Driving And Accidentally Hit The Button On The Freeway? Loss Of Steering, Brakes, Control??? This Is A Fatal Engineering Problem. I Know Gm Had A Huge Recall For Similar. nissan Consumer Affairs Told Me ” There Would Be No Recall” And That I Should “be More Careful.” *tr

Shortly After Purchasing My 2014 nissan altima My Wife Had Pulled Into Our Driveway And “pushed” The Stop Engine Button While The Shift Lever Was In Drive And The Engine Shut Off. The Car Immediately Started To Roll Backwards Out Into The Street Into Oncoming Traffic. We Were Lucky It Didn’t Cause A Serious Accident! This Cars Gear Shift “does Not” Have To Be In Park In Order To “push” The Button That Stops The Engine It Can Be In Drive And The Engine Will Shut Off And The Car Will Start Rolling If It Is On A Hill!. This Is Very Dangerous Because With-out The Engine Running You Lose All Your power Steering And Brakes! If This Happened On A Hill Or Steep Mountain Grade The Car Could Roll Over A Cliff Or Out Into Oncoming Traffic! I Called nissan About This Malfunction Many Times And Each Time I Was Told “the Car Is Operating As Designed” Please Have Them Correct This Problem Asap Before It Causes An Accident And Someone Is Killed!

Car Will Shudder At Low Speeds (15-35 Mph) Took Car In To Dealer, They Updated The Software But, The Transmission “failed’ The Diag Test. A New Transmission Was Put In The Car. The Car Still Will Shutter Unexpectedly Mostly At Low Speeds (however A Couple Of Times Have Be Documented By Me At Hi-way Speeds) In General, When The Motor Rpms Are Around 1000 Rpms And You Give It A Slight Amount Of Acceleration, It Will Get In To The Torque Stall Situation. So, Coming To Stop Lights And Then Needing To Go Before Coming To A Complete Stop, Or Turning On Subdivision Where Slow Speeds Are Required Or Turning Into A Parking Lot Or Parking Space. Have Documented Many Many Dates Where This Has Happened. It Was Back To The Dealer But, The Have Not Had The Issue Happen To Them. I Have Not Let My Teenaged Drivers Drive The Cars As I Do Not Feel It Is Safe For Them To Do So. This Situation Is Not Safe.

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…

After Slowing Down Or Stopping, Ie At An Intersection Waiting To Turn Or At A Stop Sign Or Light Waiting To Go, When You Attempt To Accelerate From The Stop Or Slow Down There Is A Hesitation Before The Car Will Accelerate Properly. On Numerous Occasions, Because Of This Hesitation, I Was In Danger Of Not Getting Through The Intersection Or Of Not Completing A Turn In Time To Avoid Being Hit By On Coming Traffic. I Brought My Car Into Dealer Today (1600 Miles On Odometer), Explained Problem. They Checked It Out And Confirmed That This Happens As I Explained; Tech Did Not Know Why Until He Found Service Bulletin Video. They Checked Service Bulletin (service Video) That Described Exactly What I Was Experiencing But nissan Indicates That This Is Not A “problem” And That Is “normal” For This 2014 Model “cvt Shifting”; Says It Is A “normal Characteristic” Of This 2014 Model Cvt And Not A “problem”.
