An Altima without area safety bags acquired a few actors for side-effect protection. Came back to drive the car and put the car into reverse. California lemon law needs to change because apparently very little is being done with recalling defective automotive parts. I reported it to my dealership but they were unable to duplicate it and therefore did not fix the problem. I was told that I needed a new clutch. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic who diagnosed that the gear shift needed to be replaced. This can be very hazardous in heavy traffic.
The dealer only had to check the oil consumption rate. This afternoon, I was driving my son home from daycare, and the clutch did this very thing, but for the first time, I could not get the car out of gear and I was in bumper to bumper traffic. It became more and more troublesome. The Nissan file number is 6393944. Thus, operating this vehicle could cause accidental injury or even death. This is obviously a defective part since it has had problems from 6,000 miles on and is reported by many other Nissan owners as well on internet forums.
Stranded on the side of the road. It had lost more than 50 percent of its pressure. I have been on many forums where this seems to be a major problem with alot of 6 spd transmissions for the Altima. In traffic or on a hill, this has caused the vehicle to roll backwards. The vehicle was not repaired. He described my problem when I said it shifted funny. On two occasions, while the vehicle was idling, the engine shut off.
It was just around the corner from target. Some time last year, when I was at the grocery store, my clutch was all the way down and it wouldn't come back up. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. Manually move clutch back up with foot. Nissan manufactured and then covered up a defective timing chain tensioning December 19, 2014 Whether it's hesitation between gears, rough shifting, sudden stops or diminished acceleration, there's absolutely nothing good about these garbage transmissions.
On three occasions, when driving between 1-20 mph, the engine would shut off. This causes unsafe situations at intersections and on the highways during traffic. It almost is impossible to shift. Approximately 2 years later issue began. How safe is that for not only myself but other motor vehicle operators on the road. Last time, it took over 5 hours for the clutch to start working again. On twelve occasions, when the floor clutch was pressed, it became stuck.
Replacing the transmission would be too costly. Good thing I was wearing sandals. This morning, when I was leaving for work, it stayed down and would not come up. This month, at 38,000 miles, the clutch has fallen to the floor and has remained stuck there, rendering the vehicle completely undriveable. Until the condition was happening enough for the dealer to detect the problem, they would not do anything. I am lucky not to have had a crash.
When I finally yanked it out of gear, I couldn't put it back into gear because the clutch was stuck to the floor. Driving along highway and unable to get the car in gear during a downshift. This generation of Nissan vehicles is not without problems. On one occasion, when the vehicle was placed in reverse, it rolled forward to the sidewalk. After taking the car to Nissan I was told I needed a new clutch.
I have brought the car to the dealership several times and they say they have replaced the cylinder, but the problem persists. When I stopped to enter into traffic and proceeded, the stick popped out of gear and I couldn't get the car into gear and an oncoming car almost hit me. The dealer replaced the master cylinder in the past to repair but the same situation has arisen. When first taken into Nissan windward Nissan, honolulu hi was told that there was nothing wrong. If the transmission fluid level on your Altima is low, you need to add fluid through the dipstick tube. This has been happening since October 2007. After reading all of the complaints, I feel that they are dead on track with this being a safety issue.
This afternoon, I was driving my son home from daycare, and the clutch did this very thing, but for the first time, I could not get the car out of gear and I was in bumper to bumper traffic. I finally got it to go into reverse and luckily no one was behind me. I expressed several time of how it has put me in dangerous situations while driving and and got the sorry bout your luck tune. Since that November date and having reported this problem to the Nissan dealership on January 5, 2009, I have experienced on the highway and city streets with passengers, the manual transmission would not upshift, would not downshift, nor release from the position it was in. I don't have money to purchase a new one at this time, but wish someone can tell me what is going on. On two occasions, when the vehicle was placed in reverse, it rolled forward towards the sidewalk.
