Failure Date: 10/21/2017

When starting from a dead stop, pressing down on the accelerator peddle no forward car acceleration, no increase in rpm. After a short period of time ( 2-3) seconds fast increase in rpm and fast forward acceleration. This is very unsafe when trying to merge from a dead stop and expecting forward motion and there is none. This has been a Nissan problem since 2008 and no fix or test when taken to dealer. This is a sporadic problem only noticed from a dead stop, city streets going straight or making turn on start, gas tank quantity no issue in this problem.

At very low speed (as in searching for a parking space) the car will accelerate, without warning, and then fall back to an idle. My current 2015 Altima is at the body shop now because of an accident (due to this unannounced accelerlation) where my wife ran through a wall at riteaid drugs while attempting to park. The vehicle was in the parking space and almost completely stopped when it accelerated. My wife was not badly injured, but could have been, not ot mention any pedestrians that might have walked in front of the her car. I have police report, pics, etc. , but unable to load them. I complained to tenneson Nissan about this and several other issues at the 5000 mile service visit, to no avail.

My Nissan Altima 2014 engine caught on fire while driving on va 286 interstate 66 w exit toward front royal for merging onto I-66 w virginia. Luckily I got out safely. I saw smoke come up from under the hood so shut the engine off, so I pulled over to the side. Then a flame came up and I ran out of the car. Within a matter of seconds the whole car was engulfed in flames and is destroyed 75% and I hardly saved my life but lost laptop, mobiles, baby car seat, stroller and other personal stuff. We lost our car which costed us $22,000. 00 even engine was under 5 year warranty which caused a reason of fire but Nissan is not ready to take responsibility of its product even their product will take your life. We still owe to bank for Nissan Altima 2014. Help us to cover a total loss from Nissan. This stuff should not be happening!! I do not have gap insurance either. Nissan should give us new car as a replacement!!!!.

Failure Date: 09/11/2017

I was stopped at a red light and the car just turned itself off. I turn it back on and as soon as I put it in drive it turns itself off again. I finally get it going and get to my destination without anymore problems. The next day I go to start it and as soon as I put it in drive the car turns itself off, I continue to try to get it going but never did. I get it towed to the Nissan dealership and they said the entire transmission needs to be replaced. I get the transmission replaced. Now 3 months after I get a brand new transmission it's doing the same thing again. I start the car go to put it in drive and it turns off.

At around 11:50 pm Monday August 21, 2017 my son parked his Nissan Altima on residential street in front of a friends house while he ran in for a bit before heading home, about 10 minutes later 2 loud "pops" rattled the home. They stepped out front to find that his 2008 Nissan Altima was fully engulfed in flames 20-30 feet high. At 00:11 the fire department arrived and worked to extinguished the car, finally finding it safe to leave at 01:17. They car is obviously a total loss. I am requesting an investigation into the cause of this random "explosion" of the vehicle while parked. Thankfully, no one was injured and no other structures were damaged (possible damage to the city road), this very well could have resulted in a devastating outcome.

After driving vehicle for 1 hour or more, vehicle goes into fail-safe mode, meaning the rpms will not go over 2500. So, if one is on the highway going 70 mph, then arrives at a hill, then the vehicle speed could decrease to 40 mph. According to mechanic, this is a known issue and Nissan has a service kit for this exact issue. I am not sure why it is not a recall. . .
