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.

The vehicle stalls while driving which could cause an accident. It has happened many times and we have been lucky other drivers are paying attention. The vehicle does start back up. We have found a recall but when we've checked the VIN # it comes up with no recalls. There is a sensor issue recall that describes exactly what the car is doing. It has stalled on off ramps, city streets and suburban roads. I have found the following online: on certain passenger vehicles equipped with a 2. 5l enginethe crankshaft position sensor can overheat causing a brief interrupion in the signal output. If the interupption of the signal is so brief that the ecm electronic control module dose not have time to diagnose the condition, the vehicle may shut off creating the risk of an accident. The dealer will reprogram the ecm free of charge. The Nissan recall # is r0606 Nissan is no help the vehicle only has 97,0000 miles and was bought used from a lot in nh who was also no help.

Car jutter & stalled when came to a stop. Took car to local Nissan dealership and they placed car on diagnostic which came back clear and could not duplicate problem for 2 days. Received car back and car did the same thing, took it to a different Nissan dealership that said they have heard of same complaints but they have had my car for 5 days and claim to not be able to duplicate the problem. Car warranty is almost up and Nissan seems to be of no help. Passenger airbag light also stays on from time to time. I have read and printed out several identical complaints and there seems to be no resolve.
