problem #1

Oct 132010


  • 2,850 miles
After driving approx. 50 miles at highway speeds 65-70 mph and exiting to a full stop, engine would rev up as usual but only move 1 mph. Transmission not fully engaged. This puts one in harms way with no ability to move out of the way. Occurred in all gears. Only way to get back to normal was to shut off engine and restart. This occurred three times in a row on same day (10/13/2010). Does not happen in normal Suburban driving or since that day because car not taken on highway since (or before 10/13/2010). Dealer (leith Nissan apex nc) was unable to reproduce or repair because tech only drove car for 4 miles on 50 mile per hour Suburban road with several stoplights.
