Sentra 4-cyl

  • 67,272 miles
In November I was driving on the highway for 30 minutes, next thing I know is that I have no power in the engine. The car would not go higher than 20 miles and the revolutions on the motor were as high as 5,000rpm. I lost control of the car because I could not accelerate and I could not stop the car because the brakes were very hard and unresponsive. I could not move the car, it felt like the car had the brake pedal push all the way with emergency brake, I tried to accelerate but it did not move. Had to tow the car to the Nissan dealer service department. After 1 week, the service guys told me the problem was the outpeed speed sensor. After 3 days of using the repaired car, the car did the same thing only this time I almost crashed with another car because I lost control of the car again and the car almost got on fire. From the engine compartment you could see smoke coming out. Had to tow the car again to the Nissan dealer service department with no result because they could not replicate problem. The car did the same to me 2 more times and this time the dealer decided to replace the cvt transmission which I have read they have a lot of problems and because of that Nissan extended the warranty to 10 year 120K miles. After the transmission was replaced I used the car for about 1 month and the car in February did the same again. No engine power, unresponsive brakes, high RPM and smoke coming out from the engine compartment. Until when will I have to deal with this problem"?? when will Nissan correct or recall these transmissions, when a life is lost? I took the car more than 4 times before they decided to replace and fix the problem. I'm going back again to Nissan, how many times will this time will be" I have lost more than 3 months with this issue and still the car is not working. Nissan does not have a safety recall and don't seem to take seriously the problem.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Sentra. The contact was driving 60 mph when the vehicle begin jerking abnormally and would not accelerate over 20 mph. The contact moved the vehicle off the roadway and discovered that there was no transmission fluid in the vehicle. The contact added an adequate amount of transmission fluid yet the failure persisted and the vehicle was hesitant to the contact attempts to accelerate. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer. The dealer advised that transmission fluid had spilled onto the engine and the transmission was not compatible with the vehicle. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 60,000.

When I purchased my 2007 Nissan Sentra I heard a ticking sound under the vehicle took it to the dealer once they said it was normal. It got worse took it again they said nothing was wrong. Now I found out that both of the front axles are leaking grease everywhere only its been awhile now my vehicle is no longer under warranty. What this has caused is the vehicle to shake and the motor mount to crack. Also the brake master cylinder was recalled they replaced it and it is leaking bad one day my brakes failed almost causing an accident had to add brake fluid leaks out every week. Please help me thankyou.

  • Automatic transmission

Ctv automatic transmission not responsive when is cold. Transmission does not shift, RPM on vehicle rise up to 5000 and not response. I have a disable daughter that needs medical attention sometimes and needs immediate procedures. Nissan usa has been just evasive with this new technology.
