The vehicle is loosing power when making a sharp right turn. It's like the engine is cutting off from it power source and you feel the engine is stall ready to cut off. Then, regain power few seconds later. This doesn't happen on the highway at when driving at very high speed. It happened on local road between 30 to 50 mph

When accelerating the vehicle gets stuck at apx 30rpm. It will stop complete acceleration for apx a minute and then will pick up speed. This continues to happen and has almost put me in two accidents getting hit at intersection and entering on to a ramp, and stalling in traffic on a busy street. I have reported to West Texas Nissan and corporate. The vehicle was returned once to me without correcting it and it did it again with a mechanic test driving with me. It is currently in dealership again for the last 40 plus days with them saying they cant detect what it is. I would mention a new engine had to be replaced on this truck with in a month of new purchase. This issue is a safety concern yet Nissan continues to say they cant pick up a code for it. I have videos of it happening and a Nissan mechanic that drove it with me.

Fuel tank gauge keeps bobbing back and forth, the digital range estimate is giving false readings leading to me running out of gas twice, and I get low fuel warnings even with the tank half full.at times the avg mpg would indicate between 15 and 23 mpg and the drop to 9.5 within 30 mins.

When trying to accelerate we put the pedal to the floor and truck will not move at all for sometimes up to 5 mins and that's with us trying to get the truck to go. We have almost been hit several times and we have small children that rides in the truck. We smell fumes in the cab in which I have asthma and again small children which is dangerous to smell. Shifts hard and not always the same, either takes longer to shift or shifts quick. Very jerky when in traffic. The day we got home with the truck we heard a grinding noise when pressing on the brakes.it happens random like the no acceleration. On freeway when accelerating and slowing down back to accelerating there's a horrible lag.our gauge doesn't match with what mikes we have left in the tank.when I go to the dealership they tell me there's no way and that I must be imaging it.this is our only vehicle and I dread putting my kids in the truck.our lives and safety are at risk.scared dealership will act like they checked the problems but really didn't.consitantly having to refill def which a friend said it shouldn't drop that fast. Our fuel mileage has gottten worse since we had it. Dealership wouldn't cover our windshield that cracked out of no where even though we paid for that particular extra option. Dealership lied about it all including our warranty which they talked us down to this truck. Also when turning into a spot or on a street the truck makes a weird noise and the wheel only turned up to 3/4 of the way. Also when starting sometimes it takes the truck longer to start up.

The vehicle that I drive is a 2016 Nissan tiitan 4X4 xd (the diesel version). My vehicle only has 4000 miles on it. The vehicle was in motion and at some point while driving it, a small pebble entered through the grill of the truck and came into contact with the air conditioner condenser. The result of this contact poked a hole in the condenser and caused the freon to leak out, which results in damage to the environment. The mechanic who worked on my vehicle has stated that Nissan has been having a lot of problems with this type of incident and it is a result of faulty workmanship on the part of Nissan in the grill that they chose. The grill has gaps that are too large and allows for small pieces of debris to pass through them which causes damage to the internal parts of the vehicle. Nissan has failed to recognize this as a problem and they will not warranty the vehicle or the parts that have been affected because "it's not their fault." The mechanic for Nissan suggested that I place a mesh screen behind my grill to prevent this from happening in the future. There should be a recall on this vehicle to remedy this problem and so that consumers are not required to pay $1,100 to fix their air conditioner because of faulty workmanship on the part of the manufacturer

I'm getting exhaust diesel fumes in the cab. It occurs when driving slow and when idling. Not only my truck but the truck I test drove at a different dealership. The purchase was 12/24/2016. I brought the Titan back to them and all I'm getting is lack of accountability. The statement to me in writing was that when the regen sytem activates fumes are getting into the cab. When I called penke auto groub in Michigan and Nissan national both representatives said they will contant me before noon the next day. Not one of them responded back to me. According to the service manager at Nissan in West warwick ri. Is that Nissan will be putting a bulletins out in the next 6 weeks and another out in April. I was told not to use the fresh air and use recirculation botton. This is clearly is irresponsible by Nissan of my legitimate compliant and a health, especially a safety issue to the motoring public. I drive tractor trailer for a living. If an dot officer inspects my vehicle and finds a exhaust leaking into the cab I'm immediately put out of service.
