Nissan Altima owners have reported 227 problems related to car stall (under the engine and engine cooling category).
Like many others my 2003 Nissan Altima has stalled in traffic while driving. It reads no codes. There could have been a serious accident! this is a major concern I could have been on the interstate or in having traffic. I called Nissan and they state there was a recall for a problem to this affect and it was already fixed on this vehicle in 2007. They will not fix it again. Unbelieveable! also like many other my floor board has rusted. I had a patch repair to pass inspection. This car is a saftey hazord. After reading numerous reports that others have experienced similar situations of cutting off in traffic! I have not read any fatalities yet thank goodness! recall this car befor someone is killed!.

When slowing down for traffic light, car stalled. Would start but would not move. Transmission stalled and it rolled backward although I was in drive and pushing on gas. Transmission finally engaged once up to 4000 rpm and car began to move, slowly. Various cars almost rear-ended me at different times when light was green, I had foot off brake, and was trying to move forward. This happened various times before the transmission actually went out at 62,500 miles. Had it hooked up to computer at Nissan dealer and showed no defect.

While driving my 2006 Altima on 6/8/15 for a few minutes after starting it when it had been parked for more than 12 hours, the car stalled. It restarted and I continued to drive. The following day, this occurred again exactly the same. Then the next day, the car stalled again after the car had been sitting only a few hours and "threw a code" , I. E. The "service engine soon" light came on. Today, 6/13/15, it occurred again when driving a few minutes after the car had been sitting for more than 8 hours. This time the car almost wouldn't restart. I looked up this issue and found a recall on the crankshaft position sensor. I took the car to courtesy Nissan who told me that my car did not fall under the recall. After the mechanic diagnosed the problem via the code, it was the crankshaft position sensor.

Traveling east on I-20 in arlingtjon texas our car began losing power and coasted to a stop. We were powerless to move and could not get off the freeway. We were hit from behind and as reported our car went airborne. The truck that hit us also hit another vehicle and flipped onto its top. In all 4 people went to hospital including my self and my wife. In researching the reason the car stopped, I found a number of other cases over several years of people online that lost power in this type vehicle. The problem seems to be a sensor for the crankshaft/camshaft that fails causing stalling. I contacted Nissans representative(case number18593816) at 615-725-7539. Told them the car had been sealed and secured awaiting their inspection to determine the problem. They refused to inspect the vehicle saying their were no recalls on it. I feel this is a dangerous situation that could have killed us and others.

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.
Vehicle is driven several miles so the engine is warm. Three times the car has stalled when stopping at a light or slowing at an intersection to make a left turn. When moving from the waiting position the car will stall and as an oncoming car is coming poses a left threatning situation as it will not move forward immediately. Car has been taken to Nissan dealership 2 times and both times nothing shows on the computer. Also, the car was driven the last time and the stall is not replicated. Because the problem is not replicated nisaan refuses to admit there is a problem with the car although a life is in jepordy due to the danger of making a left had turn in front of traffice when there is ample time to make the turn. I have spoken to the national office and they refuse to do anything since the computer says the car is not broken.

I went out to my car and all the sudden it would crank but not start. This began happening on a regular occasion. As I did research, I read it is most likely the crankshaft positioning sensor. It states if your car was recalled and the ecm was adjusted already, the company does not cover the issue. However, from what im reading, this is an ongoing issue with peoples vehicles. This is obviously an issue with the sensors that Nissan's original adjustment did not fix. I also read where the car will begin to stall in traffic possibly causing an accident.

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.
