problem #4

  • 23,500 miles
I was in the parking lot stationary, attempting to leave the store, and my vehicle would not start due to the brake sensor malfunctioning. I drive a 2018 Nissan Sentra and it is push start. At the time it was mid day and the weather was about 102░. my eight month and a half pregnant girlfriend had to wait in the parking lot for approximately 20 minutes in the heat until the vehicle started to work again. After one google search I was able to find out that this issue is quite frequent and needs to be addressed. This is happened on four separate occasions prior to this and all of them happened between 21,500 and 23,500 miles. This isunacceptable for a one-year-old vehicle and could┐ve led to something way more dangerous in the event we had our newborn child with us.

Car has 14,000 miles on it and is under warranty. The front radar camera is constantly acting like the car is in a wreck and it lights up the dash with various crash emblems.. I took it to the local Nissan dealership and they put in a new radar camera and it continues to do the same exact thing 2 days after being in the dealership for 7 full days...Nissan cant fix this radar crash sensor.... this happens after you crank the car and you go roughly a hundred yards.

Front radar system turns off and then resets for no apparent reason. Dash message is 'front radar unavailable due to obstruction'. it is tied into the automatic emergency braking system and intelligent cruise control. Happens when vehicle is in motion on varied roadways. There is no obstruction. Consumer stated he is cancelling request.
