Latches/locks/linkage problem #1
The car involved was a 2012 Nissan Rogue. The vehicle is a 2012 Nissan rouge. The contact stated that he exited the vehicle with the key still inside the ignition and the door independently locked after he closed the doors. The contact stated that he used his spare key to enter the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where they stated that there was no failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was 1,000. The VIN was unavailable. This problem occurred on Thursday, July 25, 2013.
Latches/locks/linkage problem #2
The vehicle involved is a 2009 Nissan Rogue. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is JN8AS58V89_. The driver's, passenger's and rear driver's door locks do not lock/unlock properly. It began with the driver's side door failing to operate properly once every 3-4 weeks. I had the door handle recall work completed in March 2011 so I thought the remote's battery was weak and replaced it in December 2011. Then the malfunction started to occur more frequently. After a few months, the driver's door lock would not unlock for entry to the car or lock once I was inside. To gain entry to the car, I would have to open the driver's rear door and reach forward to unlock the driver's side door. I had the driver's side door lock replaced in March 2012. Now the passenger door is inoperative as well as the rear driver's side door. I must get in the car and reach to lock/unlock the doors from the inside. If ever quick entry or exit from the car is needed, someone is going to be harmed. A child in a car seat, a person with limited mobility or the ability to make a quick decision is trapped unless I am able to quickly reach to lock/unlock the doors. I have filed a complaint with Nissan who tells me the car is out of warranty and that they will give me a $500 dealer assistance towards a $1700 bill for a defective system. I found on the internet other 2009 Rogue owners with the same complaint. The murano and the juke have also been recalled for this problem. The failure date was Friday, Mar. 11, 2011.
Latches/locks/linkage problem #3
Electronic door locks on my 2008 Nissan Rogue have failed on multiple occasions rendering the electronic locking mechanism inoperable. Nissan has refused to service my vehicle without exorbitant repair fees. This is a safety concern due to the following: 1. Having a secure environment is paramount in certain neighborhoods. When locking the doors it's imperative nobody can gain access at will by walking up to the car. If anyone can simply open the door to gain access, carjacking, injury, or even murder is easier. If the doors locked properly this provides a more secure environment. 2. Nissan knowing there is a security problem with their locking mechanism and not recalling them for safety concern is negligent. It's an open door to a lawsuit if someone were to be murdered due to a door that didn't lock, although the driver pushed the lock button and heard the locking noise. Remember, in this case there's no obvious indication the door isn't locked unless someone walks up and opens it from the outside. The drive "thinks" the door is locked, when in reality it's an "open door" for carjacking or robbery. This failure is an intermittent of operation. Sometimes the doors lock ok, other times they don't. In addition, sometimes the doors unlock ok, other times they don't. 3. In emergencies it's important to be able to unlock doors quickly. Since 99% of the time we all use the button to lock and unlock doors, using the manual locking lever is unfamiliar. In emergencies every second counts. The locking/unlocking solenoid malfunctioning is clearly a high risk in emergency scenarios. Some people who cannot afford the $1600 to have all the solenoids replaced (as quoted by dealer). This issue has been noted by over 300 consumers, owners of the Nissan Rogue, murano, maxima, and others. It was Jun. 1, 2010 when this latches/locks/linkage issue occurred.. Read more...
Latches/locks/linkage problem #4
Cold day in nyc. The 2008 Nissan Rogue driver's side door fails to open. At first I used the keyless entry system. Then I tried to use the key and it will still not open. I had to go around the passenger side to get into the driver's seat. This is a safety issue especially at nights and dimlit areas. I had this problem before on the passenger side and took it to the dealer. They charged me $250 to fix problem even though this new model is supposed to be under warranty. Nissan needs to address this issue. I will never purchase a Nissan again. This latches/locks/linkage problem happened on Dec. 13, 2010.
