When placed on park the car still rolls forward or back and almost caused an accident. The car pulls when driving in a slow speed of 5-20 mpr and sometimes the floor on the driver side vibrate. Also, the electrical buttons located on the steering wheel are unable to be used when on parked or driving. The volume or phone or selection switch does not work again. . .

Brakes have been squeeking for a year. Took it in for service and they claimed brake dust and that they are ceramic brakes. Utterly annoying and it is only a year old. Squeek happens anytime brake is pressed.
My engine is making a raddling noise every time I accelerate then goes into an even worse noise like there's some sort of crack in the casing or a loose bolt inside the engine compartment. The breaks squeak every time I go into a stop motion. I've made a appointment before with carmax before and they've spent 5 hours in which none of the initial issues that I drove to austin for. And since that appointment no one has answered my calls to set up another and the two major issues are just getting worse.
I purchased my car on March 21 2017 & I already had to change my breaks 3 times front three times & back breaks twice in less than a year.

Owner of a 2003 Nissan Altima - on 2/18/17 while taking my vehicle to a car wash in linden, NJ, I had my vehicle on neutral and when the car wash was completed, I put the vehicle on drive and proceeded slowly towards the car wash employees as they instructed me to stay on my left side, as the other vehicle was on the right side and I had my foot on the brakes. As the two employees placed their towels on my front vehicle to dry out the vehicle, my vehicle immediately started to jolt twice while I had my foot on the brakes and immediately my vehicle accelerated at a high speed. Smoke started to come out of the front hood and the airbag came out. I had to control the steering wheel not to hurt any one as there were several parked vehicles and people vacuuming their vehicles or cleaning out their vehicles. Not sure how many parked vehicles were hit and my vehicle hit a parked SUV. Ambulance arrived and the police. I was in shocked, surprised and cried and told the police about my vehicle taking off so quickly without any warning while my foot was still on the brakes. All I kept saying is OH my god what happened. How could this happen? were there any recalls? I kept saying I had my foot on the brakes and the vehicle would not stop just kept accelerated. There were no warning indicator lights. I had injuries including my right ankle, knee, head, neck, shoulders and back. Police report was taken and not available at the moment as it takes a couple of days.

The contact owns a 2010 Nissan Altima. The contact stated that the entire dashboard was sticky and had cracks. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not diagnosed or repaired. In addition, the brake warning indicator illuminated inadvertently. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 28,000.
Came out to get in the car which was parked, used the fob to unlock the door got into the car and nothing. The brake was hard to press, the steering was locked, could not go into any gear, the car could not be jumped with cables. I had 2 indicator lights on. I needed to have the car towed to a Nissan dealer. The diagnosis is the steering actuator. I am being charged roughly $1100. I don't yet have my documentation as the car is with the dealership. This sounds like it has been an issue recently with several 2009 Nissan Altimas. Nissan may want to rethink making this a recall. I was lucky to be in a public place in the daytime.

Over the years ived had multiple problems with the branke and engine of my 2010 Altima. The panel lights up but the engine does not crank. Pushing the ignition button only locks the brake. No warning signals either the car just dies on you ived paid over 700 everytime it needs repair, im very frustrated with my car and will never buy another Nissan vehicle.
I took my car for servicing at Nissan service center and they told me that car brakes needs to be changed. My car's mileage is only 34 k.
I have been in a few accidents and my airbags don't work.
The brakes on the 2013 Nissan Altima squeak, when backing up. I had this looked at three times and the brakes are fine so there must be a manufacturing defect.
