I warmed the car up for a few minutes because of the stalling problem. The contact stated that while driving approximately 65 mph the transmission suddenly failure and the vehicle would not accelerate. They claim to commit to this in writing within the extended warranty verbiage, but in my attempt for assistance I have been flatly denied. It's cool no pun intended that it is reversible. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who confirmed the transmission failure. Then crank the car back up to drive out the way of the cars behind me.
Upon searching the internet I read numerous posts of multiple owners with similar problems with Nissan's 2007-2010 model year cvt transmissions. They should help pay for part of my expenses as they commit to within the extended warranty. Rolled car backwards down hill into closest parking lot. Nissan refuses to repair since the car is only 7000 miles outside the warranty. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where the contact was informed that the transmission failed.
I spoke to three different Nissan assist representatives. Wheel bolt was loose and work seems to have fixed the problem. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the cvt transmission was faulty and needed to be replaced. The car was out 2k miles out of warranty. I also believe that these failures represent a significant safety hazard and the research I done indicates this particular problem is widespread. I have since sent certified letter to Nissan north America notifying them of this.
There were no codes in the computer. Nissan refuses to cover all repair work under the extended guarantee and ensure safe driving from the debris left in the coolant line but did replace the transmission and radiator. Finally symptoms were closer together and threw codes. The contact declined to pay the fee for diagnostic testing; therefore, the vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. I didn't notice anything wrong when driving the car. Failure of the coolant system can cause overheating of the engine and may pose a unsafe driving hazard, however by their Nissan definition changing the radiator and transmission and leaving debris in the coolant lines is within reason and safety guidelines and do not have to flush or replace any other component that the oil mixture has touched even if it did damage those components as a result of the oil mixture.
Luckily, nobody was close behind her and she was able to drift it to the side of the highway. I took it to the dealer ship and was told the speed sensor inside the transmission was bad. When the vehicle stalled, all the warning indicators illuminated. The contact made three attempts to accelerate, but was unsuccessful. While driving approximately 20 mph, the vehicle hesitated when attempting to accelerate.
Finally, I was informed by the last representative that there was no one else to which I could petition my case. Today it only has 8000 miles on it and it is stalling and shutting off when I drive it. I brought my car into the Nissan dealer and they confirmed that my transmission was failing, causing the lack of acceleration. There is no guarantee that the coolant pump, thermostat or other coolant devices won't fail and cause other operational hazards, if they do indeed fail as a result of their negligence to perform a full repair; and ensuring that the lines and coolant systems are free from debris and will not fail under use. Just switch the 2 wires, reversing the polarity to change the airflow direction.
The failure mileage was 40,000. While driving 75 mph, the check engine warning indicator illuminated and the vehicle decelerated. I have spoken to several mechanics and Nissan has had a terrible failure rate with these to parts, also the front coil had to be replaced because of a recall. Advised to replace fluid and monitor. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the transmission failed and needed to be replaced. My vehicle has been at a local Nissan dealer for 2 weeks awaiting Nissan authorization to perform the warranty repair.
I was fortunate to have a prewired relay in the vehicle since this fan didn't include one. And now the transmission has failed in the vehicle and Nissan wants to charge 4600. Do not simply wait around for your car or truck to have problems with overall performance loss and risk unanticipated failure. I had to turn the ignition to the off position. I ask for your assistance on this matter for I am confident that there are an excessively high amount of Nissan cvt transmission failures within the 2007-2010 model year, well beyond the industry norm. The car when driving 60 mph will just decreases in speed until it stops the engine is running. The contact was unsure if the vehicle was previously repaired per the recall.
