S10 appropriate handling- copy of a letter to Nissan re acceleration problems with his 2009 Nissan Altima 2. 5 sl
the consumer stated when she merged onto a major highway, she applied the accelerator pedal, and soon discovered the vehicle was decreasing in speed, instead of increasing. The consumer stopped to a repair shop, but they were unable to find any problems. After approximately an hour and a half of driving at a constant speed of 60 mph, the acceleration problem returned. Going up hills, was extremely difficult and the top speed of going up a hill was 45 mph. The vehicle was towed to a dealer and the next day the consumer was informed they were unable to diagnose and fix the acceleration problem. The consumer continued to experience the same problems. The consumer took the vehicle to her local dealer, and they were unable to diagnose a problem as well.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima, I bought the car in 10/2008 a few months afterwards I started noticing the clutch would go all the way to the floor. I had a friend drive it after that incident and he said he didn't notice anything so I let it go. It would notice it happening again, usually when I'm driving around town in stop and go traffic. I took it to the mechanic who told me they couldn't find anything wrong with it. This has happened to me soo many times now. I will be driving and their would be no pressure in the clutch, it would go all the way to the floor and all the time I'd have to use my feet to pop it back up. One incident happened when I was parked. I turned my car on and put my foot on clutch, no pressure. Usually I could put it in gear, drive it around for 10 mins (popping the clutch back up) the whole time and the pressure would start to come back after a couple drives around the block. This time, I couldn't even put the car in gear. I was stuck for almost 30 mins, trying to pump the clutch, turning the car on and off, doing everything possible. Finally I was able to put it in gear and drove it around the block and then straight to the mechanic. Who told me nothing. Basically he bled system, and so forth and so forth. Just yesterday, this happened again while driving in busy street in my city. It is very, very dangerous and as I began to research online, I noticed that others are having the same problems. I don't know how much money I've put into trying to "fix" this problem but their should be a recall for this vehicle. To ensure that no lives are lost or in danger, someone from Nissan needs to look into this matter.

While driving on the highway and when pushing on the gas pedal vehicle would not accelerate, and it does this when trying to precede on from a stop light. It might go 2-3 mph.

While parking, the vehicle accelerated forward. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a parked car. No injuries reported.
My 2001 Nissan Altima, with approx 89000 miles, has started experiencing engine failure at cruising speeds (50-70 mph) on the freeway. It is intermittent with no apparent warning. First, all guages, including gas, temperature, rpm and odometer, fall to zero. The car jerks as if downshifted, and slows drastically, and the gas pedal does not accelerate the car. It has happened 7-8 times in the past few weeks. The radio display light also blanks out, not sure if this is related or a separate problem.
