Is the Check Engine Light on? Car would slow down on Highway. My car is now not drivable. Then after filling up, issue was gone the rest of the way to work. The vehicle has 65000 miles. At that time I thought it was the fuel problem because I was stopped on a hill and my fuel was low but it wasnt fully empty so I was boffeled as to what it may be. The rap dear tell me that they are covered up to 120,000 miles. Took it to Nissan dealership and they said transmission needed to be replaced with 74,000 miles on it.
What are the symptoms on your vehicle for the P0303 2003 Nissan Altima Sedan code? Too many have this problem and should not have to pay for this. I took care of it like the apple of my eye. I had the same problem twice with my 2003 Altima 2. Contact Nissan to arrange to get the transmission fixed and then look into trade or resale. I am going to have it repaired at the Nissan dealer where I purchased the vehicle.
Not turn on, then wait X amount of minutes for it to cool, and it would start up and drive. I had my wife drive my car to make sure that I was correct in what I heard. I feel like I am robbed! They kept the car and sent me a message saying they were able to duplicate the issue without the mat being in there just in case and they are sending a request to Nissan tech support to see what to do because there are no error codes. I noticed it was making a few odd bumps and wierd shifting. The mechanical flaws with it though are the seal on the hydraulic pully going bad and leaking which leads to reduced pressure giving you irratic gear ratio changes and in turn making the steel belt slip on the pully which in turn leads to burnt fluid and pulley damage. During 10 years it just went 3 -4 times out of state! I read the book which says to push the shift lock release button which will let me move the gear shift temporarily. Nov 04, 2012 The cam sensor is mounted in top of the engine on the right side of the engine where the tranny mounts.
In closing, Dont let these complaints scare you or chase you away from an over all great economy vehicle. It went out with no warning. It was easy to use, sleek, light! Ran out later in the morning, no hesitation at all. I would push the pedal all the way to the floor and nothing would happen for a few seconds. Anyone heard of this before?? Not covered by their latest screw up. Should have researched the cvt issues on Nissan.
Have you replaced any parts? Finally transmission was replaced, but until now January 2011 Nissan did not admit that there is a problem and did not take any preventive action. Every other week it goes hand wash. Of course I get no assistance but of course the people still want the car note. But after I got rid of the car. During the same trip I was at 65 and it was the same scenario, but this time I grabbed my phone and recorded it.
I bought a new car and decided to never buy another Nissan product. Definitely going to sell the car. Hesitating in traffic and dying at stoplights. As I was exiting the vehicle, it popped out of park and into neutral. But that the part was on back order and they didnt kno when the part would be in. Bite the bullet and repair what is needed.
After approximately 10 miles, car began to slow down by itself and I exited. Switch the engine off and wait for 5 seconds. Get a detail shop to make the car look good. What recourse do I have? The last month or so it started acting up, stalling, running very rough, and this week it stalled on me 3 times in heavy traffic. 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. I thought nissans last long time but I was wrong.
Does the lever move all? I am looking into seeing if the recall was supposed to prevent the cvt failure. Keep me posted on any class action. This happened again about 4 months later. I first took it to a couple of a mechanics that did not agree on the problem, and then finally to the Nissan specialist who by only hearing the noise could identify the problem: the catalytic converter was clogged. When I am accelerating, between 20-35 mph my car makes a loud nose and hits between 4000-5000 rpms, but it feels like it is losing power and is very slow to speed up. The case still had claims of breach of express warranty, unjust enrichment, and consumer fraud to work with. It is now at the dealership for the second time with transmission issues.
I have owned two Toyotas that have taken over 200k with no major mechanical problems. I called Nissan again and asked them to pay for the repairs to be made; they were not willing to work with me at all in any way. I called Nissan Canada and the recall is still accepted. Then after continuous pumping the car would start moving but with a jerk when shifting variables in the transmission. We then took it to the mechanic and he changed the crankshaft sensor.
Ended up paying 300 for a whole brand new tire 1 month later. A smooth application of power is almost impossible. And did whatever they asked us to fix or replace regularly! I hope we can finally fix this!! We need to sue nissan its not fair we have to get new transmissions on cars under 100 k miles, we need a good lawyer whos gonna fight for us. We recently traveled to Tennessee for our 25th wedding anniversary. They still have my car as of now and I am waiting to see how they rectify this. I got a loaner and today I learned I needed a transmission. Hello all, I'm new to this game of Asian cars but I finally let go of the American muscle Chevys etc and now I have a 2003 M45.
