He hooked it up to the machine and told me it was transmission issues. Transmission was shifting rough, engine idled rough when stopped at light, and it felt like the accelerator was pulsing when I tried to accelerate from stop or very slow speed. I fill they didn't correct the shifting problem maybe repaired. Transmission judged to be good by dealership and there are no pending software updates. We perform regular service for tuneups, oil changes, brakes, etc. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility where the mechanic stated that the transmission needed to be replaced.
Also be sure to check the clutch fluid to make sure it's not low. Motorist pulled into available parking spot, nose first, and slowed down. When I exit the freeway and come to a stop, I can push the gas pedal down to the floor and experience very little speed. I didn't do the radiator swap and perhaps I should have. But then I noticed upon driving off the tps sensor light was lit.
I took it home and fixed it myself. This car is not safe to drive or park for that matter. He was not in on Friday. Un-hook the positive battery cable, step on the brake to drain any residual power left, hook back up and let it do it's reset. Should have researched the cvt issues on Nissan. The manufacturer need to take action and recall to fix this matter. And go back to Honda.
Unfortunately it was the transmission and gonna cost 4000 to replace it. The automatic transmission failed while driving. Problem seemed solved til 3 weeks later and exact same issue happened again. However, in the last few days it's been extremely cold here Between 0F and -26F and I have a feeling that even with a 20 minute drive, the fluid wasn't getting warmed up to the correct temp. If my car already had 59K miles, they could have put a band-aid on it, and hoped it would be good for 1K miles. But when its there, it is definitely there. The cost od repairs and a rental is being coveres by the dealership where I purchased the car.
This is what I hate about big companies taking advantage of people. At first this only happened once every few days and I thought I was crazy. This happened twice in a two week period so I took the car in to get checked and was told the transmission needs to be replaced. This situation happens is a constant problem for the past month. A week later, I have the car back; seems to run better. Purchased this car for my son as a college car. .
Why on earth did I pay you 22K????? I spoke with another representative. Nissan said their filed tech could find nothing wrong with the car. On cold mornings I can back out of parking space fine, but when I put it in drive, nothing happens. Maybe they exist, but I have never heard of the problem with Toyota vehicles. The replaced transmission last only 30K mies?? Still owe 2 and a half years payment on the car. The car still looks very good but on a hot day the transmission fails to stay in fourth gear on the freeway, and in Texas, a hot day is common.
Once you are back in the shop three or more times for any repeated repair, or if your vehicle is out of service an extended period of time, you may want to look into your rights. I have no clue where to go from here--I want to drive it but I also don't want a faulty solenoid, improperly identified, to go bad making my whole tranny go bad. So we got a brand new transmission from the factory that totally failed again 2 years later with 60k miles of driving as the car had 144K and so we were out of the warranty period and the work was only covered for 1yr. When I explained the problem to the Service Advisor, he knew right away what the problems was. I had my wife drive my car to make sure that I was correct in what I heard.
How are they able to get away with this problem and not have a recall for this problem. This is not fair to us and i seek to find a solution of this matter. Took it in and found out the transmission had a major malfunction and needed replacement. There should be a recall and we need to have a class action since they are not caring about us as the buyers of what we thought were great cars. While driving 5 mph, the vehicle began to hesitate and jerk violently as the contact attempted to accelerate.
This 2004 Nissan Maxima came in with the complaint that the transmission would not shift properly. And did whatever they asked us to fix or replace regularly! If it shifts hard though, solenoids and valve body gasket. I have read other woes about the same thing on this website. A loud squicky sound comes from the engine. I am punished because I well maintained my car and never abused it. I have no issues with driving short or moderate distances, only long highway trips. I was a mile from Nissan Dealer where I bought my car and drove it there.
I live about 10 hours away and will have to make a 20 hour round trip this weekend less than a week later to retrieve my car. The dealer found that again, the pedal assembly was at fault, and the entire assembly was replaced. Bought it a few weeks ago and it drove fine when I test drove it. At 121000 while on a trip out of state Jt totally went kaput. The bulletin requires to check the fluid anyway.
