Failure Date: 12/11/2014

While driving my 2005 Nissan Altima, it appears to have shifting issues that are known to Nissan. Nissan needs to step up to the plate and stand by their product. Hard shift from 1st to 2nd at initial start up. Also have shifting issues from 3rd to 4th. The shifting from 3/4 is when vehicle is at operating temps. There is a very hard shift and delay in shift. I have called several dealers, and all claim not to have any recalls or bulletins, or deny hearing of any shifting issues. Very poor customer service. Going into 4th from 3rd, vehicle seems to have a delay and stalls, unit revs, and finally kicks into gear.

My wife just phoned to tell me the cvt transmission failed-again- leaving her stranded in a parking lot in a bad part of houston (sw). This has happened many times and has been taken to Nissan dealer in angleton, texas for this problem. In December of 2014 they installed a transmission cooler,thinking it's an overheating problem. My wife stated shes glad it didn't happenen on the freeway as it might had caused a collision with possible death,etc. Nissan has not resolved these cvt issues and you-NHTSA- have not forced them to so so either. When the cvt fails you lose power as it goes into a default mode. This happens without warning and causes loss of acceleration and ability to move out of hazardous situations. The only remedy is to park the car and wait for it to cool,thus resetting the default mode. At this point Nissan has advised to bring the car in for a code scan. This is dangerous enough that I plan to take the car in with the intention of getting rid of it!!! I will trade it in for a Toyota camry but unfortunately some other person will be stuck with the same dangerous cvt issues and could also be killed or injured because of this transmission failure and because you have not forced Nissan to fix the problem. I have complained to you of this same issue with negative results.

I own a 2009 Nissan Altima coupe with approximately 60k miles. When driving on the interstate at speeds in excess of 60mph, the car decelerates with no warning. During the first incident, I was on the left-hand side of a semi truck caught in their blindspot while they were trying to switch lanes. I attemtped to pass this truck only to have my car slow down completely, even with gas pedal to the floor. Vehicles behind me had to change lanes suddenly to avoid rear ending me, and I almost became the victim of a serious accident with this semi truck. Fearing a similar incident on the trip back, I stayed safely in the right hand lane going just below the posted speed (70mph). As I approached an incline on the interstate, not only would my car not speed up, it would not even maintain speed. It quickly went from 66mph to 55mph. Once again, I was almost involved in a serious collision with the unsuspecting vehicles behind me. After getting a diagnosis done at my local Nissan dealership, I was informed that my transmission was overheating. Nissan has admitted to knowing these issues, by automatically extending the warranty on these cvt transmissions to 10yr/120k. However, the way around actually paying to fix these death traps is to inform the consumer that the "fix" is not a new transmission, rather an external cooler that needs to be installed. These are commonly found in larger SUV's and trucks to help compensate for the additional stress on the transmission, due to larger size/weight. I drive a 2-door Altima. I am not towing boats or pavers. If my tiny car needs an external cooler to help its faulty transmission function safely and properly, that should have been installed at manufacturing. The out of pocket cost for this cooler is $1000+. Nissan needs to be held accountable for the faulty product they manufactured. This could result in serious injury or death.

Since I leased my car in may2014 I forgot to turn the engine off 4 times . Twice it ran all night in my garage but fortunately the gas fumes did not enter my house while I was sleeping. I believe its because I'm not use to the keyless ignition system. At first I thought I mistakenly started the engine with the remote start capability while the key was in my pocket. I reported the problem to the car dealer and at my request they disengaged the remote start feature on the vehicle, recently the car was left running all night for the second time so I apparently forgot to turn it off, I am elderly and hard of hearing and can hardly hear the engine running, I wear a hearing aid. It runs very quietly. Once I loaned my daughter the car and she encountered the same problem of not turning off the engine, I learn from internet post that countless reports have been made and several deaths by carbon monoxide entering homes have occurred due to this problem, I understand the keyless ignition system has been around for many years and is installed in many different vehicles, I was not aware of it until I got my car. I feel a safety recall should be issued to correct the problem before more people get killed, the public should be made aware of it without further delay since countless reports have already been made. Please acknowledge receipt of my report. Thank you.
