Nissan Class Actions and other unsatisfied Nissan Owners

After the Nissan Executives and Nissan Legal fail to return any of my phone calls or emails this week, I wanted to provide some more research showing Nissan overall as a company, showing it’s just not the Sentras that have a problem, so that you can make an educated decision as to “Don’t Buy Nissan” and to “Buy the Competition.”  Nissan clearly is not interested in “winning lifelong customers” looking at all this evidence and by the fact that Corporate will not return your calls or emails when you have a problem with your car.

 

Class Actions Against Nissan:

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST NISSAN RELATING TO RADIATOR AND TRANSMISSION DEFECTS IN CERTAIN VEHICLES
In 2010, Mr. Mendelsohn and Mazie Slater Katz & Freeman, LLC, filed a nationwide class action lawsuit against Nissan relating to reported defects in Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Xterra and Nissan Frontier vehicles. To date, Nissan has denied liability for this problem and continues to fight our case.

NISSAN MAXIMA, ALTIMA & QUEST AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION CLASS ACTION
LAWSUIT COMPLAINT

A class action lawsuit has reportedly been filed against Nissan North America, Inc. and Nissan Motor Company, Ltd. (“Nissan” or “Defendants”) in the United States District Court for the Central District of California (styled Howard Teba v. Nissan North America, Inc. and Nissan Motor Company, Ltd., Class Action Case No. CV 12-00332) alleging, among other things, that Nissan manufactured, distributed and sold 2004 through 2006 Nissan Maxima, 2005 through
2006 Nissan Altima and 2004 through 2007 Nissan Quest vehicles equipped with automatic transmission that allegedly contained a defect that causes breakdown, transmission slips, delayed shifts, acceleration surging and/or mechanical failure, according to the Nissan Maxima, Altima & Quest Automatic Transmission class action lawsuit complaint.

REPORT: NISSAN GT-R CLASS ACTION SUIT OVER TRANSMISSION FAILURES SETTLED

CLASS ACTION: ODOMETERS
A class action lawsuit has been filed against the auto manufacturer for allegedly making defective odometers. The lawsuit claims Nissan intentionally and negligently designed odometers in its 2004 to 2007 Nissan and Infinity models to inflate the represented distance traveled by between 2.5 per cent and 4 per cent.  The inflated mileage means car owners have not received the full benefit of standard or extended warranties. The suit claims owners will also see a reduction in the resale value of their vehicles resulting from the inflated kilometers.

More complaints from Nissan owners

NISSAN SENTRA
“I bought a Nissan Sentra brand new. By the time it got to 50,000 miles, I had to replace the crank sensor, speed sensor, and mass air flow sensor. This car really sucks.” -Carmen of McCalla, AL
“My 2004 Nissan Sentra will not start. When the weather is cool, it takes over thirty minutes for the car to start if at all. One day in the winter, we had to let the car sit a whole week before it would even start to crank. We replaced the camshaft sensor 2 times within a year and a half. We spent over $800.00. Now it’s happening again less than 6 months since the last camshaft sensor replacement.”-Stephanie of Dallas, TX
“2003 Nissan Sentra 1.9 L. fuel pump has gone out twice…very hard at starting…the pressure valve in the fuel pump itself is going bad. I really believe that at 500 dollars for a fuel pump they should last longer than they are.  I would also like to talk to someone about a class action lawsuit against them. They are aware of the problem but seem to be doing nothing about it to fix it.”–Kelley of Pensacola, FL

“Now, I have a $5,000+ repair bill, needs cat converters, mass air and flower sensor (2nd in a year). They said it wasn’t covered because someone “tampered” with it….”-Jennifer of Albany, NY
“I had to have the head gasket fixed and in less than 3,000 miles, complete engine failure….” -Shirley of Stevens, PA

NISSAN REFUSES TO RECALL MURANO DESPITE MAJOR CVT PROBLEMS
The common thread that has caused me not to buy the Murano is the universal serious problem with the CVT transmission and Transfer Plate which costs $4-6000 to replace when it cracks or fails, which usually occurs between 65,000 or miles. Nissan claims it is the consumer’s fault

Changing the world one post at a time

My aim is to give a truthful, accurate account of the four year nightmare of owning my Nissan Sentra and the stress, exhaustion, and anger I experienced dealing with Nissan Corp. and the three dealerships. If anyone I mention here or elsewhere on my blog wishes to email me with any comments on anything I say, or wishes to contradict or challenge anything I say, I will be more than happy to review any comments, to post your comments and then comment on them myself, or remove anything that I find out to be inaccurate.

THIS IS THE THE TRUTH ABOUT NISSAN AND HOW NISSAN CORP. AND THE DEALERSHIPS TREAT THEIR CAR OWNERS AND WHY YOU:

DON’T BUY NISSAN

BUY THE COMPETITION
