If you don't then you don't. These problems are scaring me because they remind me of some of the reasons that I stopped buying American cars. Ensuring the safety of all vehicle occupants is a priority. To make matters worse, when the issues with the transmission started around September 2015 while going on a 500 mile trip, we took the car to Nissan of pompano beach upon our return and they told us we needed a new transmission. This car had problems from the date of purchase. As a consumer, I hope everyone going through this goes after them legally.
The battery is new, oil had been changed hat same day as the air filter and the mass airflow sensor were changed. The dealer was still unable to duplicate or correct the stalling problem. Although the American cars I have owned were worse with transmission and engine problems. It is an issue because on one side is the Outlander no mice nest and the other side is a Toyota Tundra again no mice nest. Some people are on their 2nd to 4th transmission replacement.
I like the way it drives and I feel like it handles very well. When the car is decelerating, the car makes squeaking noise and it feels like the brakes are applied to the maximum. It keep happening and I had to send it back again to recheck when it was 50K. The interior is good looking, however, the clothe seems a little cheap and I really don't like how the center console is designed but it grew on me. I have had Nissan for 3 years now and have had no issues with it. The policeman said he just saw them there and came over. Since we have been taking shorter trips with the car the issue had not manifested itself again until now so we took the car to Nissan in miami and again they told us that the car needs a new transmission.
Fuel economy ratings for the Sentra vary depending on the engine and transmission selected. This car only has 51,000 miles on it! Would not recommend to anyone 8th Nissan in the family and I'm worried now because they are all cvt. The vehicle was taken to vallejo Nissan located at 3287 sonoma blvd, vallejo, ca 94590, 707 656-4483 where it was diagnosed that the catalytic converter failed and needed to be replaced. When the vehicle is warmed up after about 20 minutes of driving and the gas pedal is pressed genteelly, it experiences severe rocking back and forth motion during the driving. No major expenses until last year and normal wear and tear for 170k miles. I have lost more than 3 months with this issue and still the car is not working.
Thus it handles and corners better--and the 6 speed stick shift model I purchased is perfect for me--as I am a stick shift old guy who likes stick shift control. The Sentra has a smooth ride, except on very bumpy rodes. At 65k transmission started shuddering and then vehicle would stall and die in traffic, very dangerous. This 2011 Sentra has the same kind of utility in the back--just not so top heavy or quite so big. Furthermore, I like that when I take the key out of the ignition I can still roll up or down the windows as long as none of the doors have been opened. The approximate failure mileage was 21,010.
While driving and making a turn, the vehicle stalled and the check engine warning indicator illuminated. More on that case in a bit. Nissan is aware of the issue with these transmissions but refuse to do anything about it if the car is out of warranty. This model came with cruise control which I would need when I moved 400 miles away for school. I am now looking at this car for the 16 year old that will be driving soon. I said I wanted the transmission fluid changes, and they told me that Nissan doesn't recommend that it be changed in the closed system until 60,000 miles. The contact called the manufacturer regarding a recall and stated there were no recalls.
When I started it up again it drove normally. The dealer changed the entire transmission. At 20,000 the issues began with my transmission. They own this transmission manufacturing company by the way. Most recently I attempted to back out of a parking spot.
The big shots at Nissan are laughing at us all the way to the bank. From the engine compartment you could see smoke coming out. Until when will I have to deal with this problem??? On one occasion, the dealer reset the codes but the failure was not corrected. Slow to take off from a stop and always seemed like it was about to cut off. It still had a pretty decent trade in value since I only had 80k miles on it but it started honking randomly so I had to get a new car. Dealer found major leak in outer and inner boots on passenger front wheel area 75000 km Transfer Case seal - small leak.
