While driving home from work the car shuttered and cut off after having stopped for a light. This happened when I press the exhilarator to continue on. I put the car in park applied my foot to the break and restarted the car. Every time I would drive to put the car in gear it would cut off. It kept doing this over and over. Local police came and with the help of a good samaritan pushed my car off the road to a safe place. I had to have my car towed to the dealer where they were unable to duplicate the problem and said that the diagnostic computer test did not show any codes for the problem. They ended up updating the transmission module and said they hoped this would fix the problem. The problem continues to occur and I have had to avoid stopping at lights due to the car wanting to cut off. This seems to be a problem that other Nissan car owners are also facing. This is a very dangerous situation to be in due to the fact that you never know when you will be stranded in the middle of a street whether it be interstate stop and go traffic or normal city street traffic. Once the car stalls it's no way to start it and put it in gear to drive without it stalling again and again. Nissan owners need a recall.

My Nissan 2008 Altima started stalling while I pulled into traffic. It was happening for several months and was random. I took my car into Nissan, after realizing there was a cvt transmission recall for this car. They examined the car and determined that there was no problem with the car, because the car did not report any diagnostic code. They told me to come back, when the car stalled and they could get the necessary code, since the car was experiencing the problem the code would be in the system. I had reported this problem to Nissan corporate and got case number. On may 7, 2018, Nissan found the code and the problem was a bad cvt transmission. Nissan determined to pay half the cost of replacing my transmission. On may 18,2018, I picked up my car and experienced the same problem driving away from the dealership. I called back and the manager said the problem was caused by high fluids and to drive the car over the weekend and it should be fine. Well, I stalled while driving into traffic two more times over the weekend. I called Nissan corporate to say that the problem is not fixed. They have refused to do anything. I do not feel safe in this car and am terrified to drive it. I'm driving an unsafe car and Nissan is not helping . . . At least for now.

Car was stalling 2 days ago shut it off and drove away just fine not even 4 hours later my fiance was driving the car home he came up around a hill /bend on a city street the car locked up on him along with the oiil brake and battery light the breaks wouldn't do anything car wouldn't stop he ended up going head on into a tree in the neighbors yard. Car is completely totalled. There was a malfunction in the car somewhere and I believe the security of the car or the ecm is what locked it up on him there was no steering in the car as well. No recalls pop up with my VIN # but I am suspected to believe there was something wrong internally. It was at 240,700 miles. He was expectidly only going 30 miles an hour but with the pictures im attaching it seems like the computer toom over the speed control.

As I was driving my 2013 Nissan Altima with 35k miles on it, I came to a stoplight at a busy intersection and my car cut off completely without any indication that something was wrong. I was not able to put my foot on the brakes, I could not move my steering wheel, it just cut off. I was able to cut my car back on, however whenever I shifted my gear into drive it cut off again. I had my car towed to the Nissan dealership, and they stated they could not find the issue but reprogrammed my cvt since there was a recall issued for my car. They determined that after driving it for 25 minutes that day and 25 minutes the next that the cvt reprogramming could have been the solution to the problem but to return it to the dealer if it happened again. 3 days later my car began shaking and stalling very roughly while in motion and again cut off in the middle of the road while in drive. This time my young son was in the car with me, and him and I could have both been harmed or caused an accident and harmed someone else. This is unacceptable that Nissan has not recalled these vehicles or the car has been returned to customers without a solution to the problem.

Was leaving store and when pulled out onto road, I was involved in a crash! left the scene and then was taken by private vehicle to local emergency room and from there, airlifted with brain injury! was almost across the road and vehicle stalled and wouldn't accelerate and stalled and caused a horrible accident. The vehicle that hit me got me in passenger rear as he was traveling up highway and threw me and went air borne and knocked a telephone pole in half and done damage to front as well. Air bags didn't deflate at all. I am making attempt to make Nissan aware and opportunity to make right. I have researched what could cause this and recalls are effective while I'm going to state unknown to cause, as there are several reasons on forum as to what could cause this. Takata recall for air bags but unknown on other.

Engine should've shut off or give warning sign that oil from the oil filler came out andsplattered all over engine causing a engine fire which could've injured or killed someone this happened because someone must've left the oil filler cap off or didn't tighten cap,all mechanics told me the car should've shut off or warning light should've came on. Also the location of oil filler is in a bad spot it's on the middle of the engine with lots of plastic covers over engine,most engines the oil filler is on side of engine so oil doesn't spill on top of engine . The engine is a 2. 5 liter engine . The engine runs very hot and with all the plastic parts and any oil spilling it can easily catch fire . I think Nissan should install a oil filler cap sensor to avoid potential engine fires. Car is being repaired now from insurance claim but Nissan refused to reimburse any fincancial offer or a replacement car,since I brought the car brand new 6 months ago . I think someone should investigate this,a simple fix like a oil cap sensor could prevent fires and save lives.
