Make and Model Nissan Altima Transmission malfunction, defect, lemon law.
 Manufacturer: Nissan North America, Inc.

Vehicle Identification No. (VIN): 1N4AL3AP8EC…

SUMMARY:

I PURCHASED A USED 2014 NISSAN ALTIMA THE END OF APRIL 2015 FROM ENTERPRISE CAR SALES. I WAS TOLD THEY DID SUCH A THOROUGH INSPECTION OF ALL OF THEIR VEHICLES THAT THE CAR WAS IN GREAT CONDITION. IN OCTOBER 2015, WITH APPROXIMATELY, 61,000 MILES ON THE NISSAN, IT STARTED RANDOMLY HESITATING. I WOULD PUSH THE GAS PEDAL BUT THE CAR WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. I TOOK IT TO THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP AND THEY COULD NOT FIND A PROBLEM. A FEW DAYS LATER, I WAS PULLING OUT FROM AN INTERSECTION AND I PRESSED THE GAS PEDAL AND THE CAR WOULD NOT MOVE!! I BARELY MADE IT HOME. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD IT NEEDED A NEW TRANSMISSION, $3400 AND THAT THE POWER TRAIN WARRANTY HAD JUST EXPIRED AT 60,000 MILES. I CALLED NISSAN NORTH AMERICA CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND FILED A CLAIM TO SEE IF THEY WOULD COVER A NEW TRANSMISSION. AFTER ABOUT 5 OR 6 DAYS, I RECEIVED A CALL BACK AND WAS TOLD NO, THEY WOULD NOT COVER OR HELP PAY FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION. I ASKED IF THEY WERE AWARE OF ALL OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THESE CVT TRANSMISSIONS, THE REP SAID THEY HAD PROBLEMS ON PREVIOUS YEAR AND MODEL VEHICLES BUT NOT ON THE 2014(S). OBVIOUSLY, THERE ARE STILL PROBLEMS!!! A 2014 VEHICLE SHOULD NOT NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION!!!
