Car Stall problem #8
While driving, my 2002 Nissan Altima 2. 5 s has stalled and left me in the middle of traffic lanes. This has happened 3 different times (including once being stalled on railroad tracks). My local dealership refuses to CO-operate with me, telling me one time that it was the "cam sensor," another I was told "the vehicle was flooded," and the last time I got no assistance (including no loaner vehicle!). The dealership claims that these problems are caused by my actions (as though I am unable to operate a vehicle correctly). I am considering taking legal action, as this vehicle is unsafe for me and others around me. I was never notified of the latest recall until researching online few weeks ago (3 months after the recall was issued), I now have an appointment to have this situation remedied next week. I hope to get the excessive use of oil situation solved as well. I am appalled at the lack of customer service that Nissan and the affiliated Nissan dealerships afford their clients that shell out upwards of $25,000 for one of their death traps!. This problem occurred on Sunday, May. 11, 2003.
Car Stall problem #9
I purchased a 2002 Nissan Altima in November of 2001. Twice within a short period of time, I was stranded when my vehicle would not start after turning it off. Both times the service department where I bought the vehicle told me that some minor adjustments fixed the problem. The third time my vehicle failed was this week, and it put my baby daughter and I in a life-threatening situation. As we traveled down I-10 at the rate of 70 mph my car stalled. I lost all power including power steering and brakes and ability to accelerate. This was a very dangerous situation. Come to find out, Nissan knows of a faulty sensor that exists in some of their later model vehicles, and is waiting until December to launch a recall campaign. I find this to be highly unacceptable because in the meantime drivers of these vehicles are at great risk. The failure date was 11/14/03.

Car Stall problem #11
Well, I filed a complaint on March 12, 2003 regarding my engine on my 2002 Nissan Altima. Well, I've noted since 2002-2004, my car has had major problems with the engine. Well, here it is 2004, I'm having the same problem with the car stalling and the air bag had a default. It was towed about three weeks ago and once again, I was told there was a recall on the censor for the computer and the starter went out as well. I've had it and I'm about to seek a lawyer. Also, everytime my car doesn't start, it's always because of a recall. Each time I ask why wasn't I notified that there was recalls, the dealer service dept. Manager claims Nissan doesn't send out letters. Well, I'm not sure what to believe. Now I'm riding around in a 4 door Nissan sentra that is loaned to me by the dealer. I want to know, does Nissan send out recall letters or is it up to the individual dealers? I'm just fed up with Nissan and I'm going to give their main office a call about this. Please help me to understand this. Thanks. It was February 26, 2004 when this car stall issue happened.

Car Stall problem #16
The vehicle was a 2002 Nissan Altima. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Nissan Altima is 1N4AL11D82_. Nissan's recall deals severely with the motor. Heat sensors were not installed on the motor allowing the motor to reach extreme temperatures, thus burning off the oxygen sensor into the pre-catalyst converter causing my motor to lose 3 qts. Plus of oil per day. Nissan knew of the problem and have tried to correct the problem. Although I have 117,000 miles have kept up with oil changes, Nissan wants me to pay 50% of the cost to fix my vehicle. I have called and complained to Nissan's 800 number and over 20 plus calls went unanswered. I then dropped my vehicle off and left in order to get someone to return my call. Nissan threatened me with the towing of my vehicle off their premises and have done so. I am now out of a vehicle and Nissan wont budge off of their 50% split for a motor. This was Nissan's fault in the production of the vehicle not mine. The failure date was Mon., Nov. 15, 2004.

The VIN of this vehicle was 1N4AL11D32_. 2002 Nissan Altima 2. 5s difficult to start, will frequently stall once started as soon as its put into gear. (Nissan dealership said it was due to "bad fuel"-charged $500 to drain tank and refill. . Problem still exists. . ) backed out of driveway, vehicle stalled, steering becomes extremely hard, unable to maneuver car, hit tree and cracked spoiler/dent bumper. Not safe to take on highway, as you cannot "merge" into traffic at highway speeds. . If you try to accelerate, it will buck and stall. The "service engine soon" light has been on for 8 months, even after dealership says they "fixed the problems" . Light keeps coming back on. Vehicle started blowing warm air through a/c this summer. Took to dealership. They said "too much freon" and charged $300. Problem still existed the next day. Took back to dealership. . Charged another $100 to do "diagnostics". . No problems ever fixed. Light still on. Nissan not addressing it. Basically ignoring the light, even though car has been in there for over $1000 worth of "repairs" in 1 month. This car stall issue occurred 08/20/06.
Car Stall problem #19
The 2002 Nissan Altima stalls repeatedly while driving on the road. The failure includes the loss of power steering and the ability to control the car safely. The problem is caused by the power valve screws coming loose and getting into the engine. The screws must be replaced with lock tight ones and the catalytic converter and oxygen sensor have been damaged and must be replaced. Nissan has a voluntary service campaign to fix the problem for 2004 and 2005 models. The technical service bulletin is ntb05058. The 2002 and 2003 models have the same engine and should be fixed by Nissan as well. The failure date was 09/16/2006.
Car Stall problem #20
The vehicle having this issue was a 2002 Nissan Altima. The car either hesitated or stalled (engine stopped running) on about 3 different trips while my wife was driving between 30 mph and 50 mph. The car started right back up each time. This vehicle had been though a recall on 11/17/2003 (r3021/r3022) to replace the cam position sensor. I was not the owner of the car when the recall was done. The dealer said this vehicle was repaired under that recall. The problem has appeared again or a similar problem is happening a second time. I brought the car into the dealer on 9/29/06 and they replaced the cam sensor to stop the stalling. Since the problem and the solution appeared to be the same as in the 11/17/2003 recall, the dealer said the problem was fixed once and therefore the second repair was not covered under the recall. I'm concerned weather this could be a recurring problem and if the original repair was adequate to remedy the stalling problem. It was August 10, 2006 when this car stall issue occurred.
Car Stall problem #21
The vehicle was a 2002 Nissan Altima. The VIN of this Altima is 1N4AL11D92_. In August of 2007, I had a problem with my crankshaft. I took it to the dealer for repair. I then researched and discovered that there was a recall for this same problem. I contacted Nissan via their website to inquiry if my problem was covered under that recall because I do never received any notification that there was a problem. I was trying to determine if I should have been charged for the repair job. Nissan USA never responded to me. Now I see on the internet that there is a recall for a problem with the crankshaft. The description is what has happened to I. E, loss of power and stalling during low speeds. The diagnosis code is p0335, crank sensor failure. If this is the same problem, I felt that I should be reimbursed what I paid for this repair job. This issue happened on Fri., Aug. 24, 2007.
