Class Action Lawsuit information: Nissan Transmission Failures – Altima, Maxima, and Quest Vehicles

RE: 2004-2006 MAXIMA; 2005-2006 ALTIMA; 2004-2007 QUEST

A 2005 Nissan Altima owner just wrote into my website reporting transmission problems for the past two years.  While I listed some class action lawsuit information on this in a previous article, now I found the link to the lawyers website who are handling this case.  Here is their info:

The class action lawsuit against Nissan is currently open and in the discovery stage of litigation, according to Chimicles & Tikellis’ website. Also according to their website:

The complaint alleges that Nissan Maxima (MY 2004-06), Altima (MY 2005-06), and Quest (MY 2004-07) vehicles with the 3.5 liter V6 engine and Aisin RE5F22A 5-speed automatic transmission may contain a design defect causing them to be predisposed to transmission slippage, premature clutch wear, overheating, and other problems that ultimately result in serious and expensive damage to the vehicles’ transmission.

So if you own one of these vehicles and are experiencing transmission problems, you should contact the lawyers above immediately.



In addition, there are three San Francisco Bay residents who are suing Nissan for a hidden defect that caused breakdowns for their 2002 Pathfinder, 2003 Altima and 2003 Pathfinder.  According to the article, “Jennie Anderson, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said they want to expand their suit to a class action on behalf of all Californians who bought 2001 through 2005 models of Nissan Altimas, Pathfinders or Sentras.  Read more here: http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Consumers-suit-against-Nissan-gets-reinstated-3700012.php#ixzz2KoaU9iWz
