Original review: March 12, 2019 I bought a 2014 Sentra in 2016, and the transmission is toast. Lo and behold less than 10,000 miles after the warranty expired the transmission went out. The steady acceleration and lack of revs can be seen as a negative depending on how you look at it. Many owners call us with no permanent fix every being done for their Nissan! I took my car to Nissan since 2014 complaining and never found a solution to the problem. It is rediculous and they should be held accountable! While driving approximately 70 mph, the vehicle decelerated to approximately 20 mph and the check engine warning indicator illuminated.
It's a scam of disproportionate levels. It's sad that I came to Google my car and found all these complaints. I had to turn the car off put in park wait for a few and then turn it back on. Had to get towed and was told that my transmission went out. At 65k transmission started shuddering and then vehicle would stall and die in traffic, very dangerous. I believe this car had transmission issues from the first day that we bought the vehicle.
Car ran great and then done. Use the Overdrive off mode when you need improved engine braking. Bluetooth music works great as well as making phone calls. We believe in taking care of you and your vehicle. It Runs Too Hot One of the reasons for all that shaking might be an overheating. The brake pedal must be depressed and the shift lever button pushed in to move the shift lever from P Park , N Neutral or any drive position to R Reverse.
So much so, that I bought a second one at 96k miles for my new driver daughter. Fortunately, the warranty covered the problem. Had a Cube and a Quest. This is a serious issue if the transmission is faulty and the fact that there was no indication that something wrong cause me serious potential danger as I was stuck in the middle of the freeway, unable to move. While driving 35 mph, the vehicle decelerated without warning. Furthermore, I like that when I take the key out of the ignition I can still roll up or down the windows as long as none of the doors have been opened. There was no mention of any problems cvt issues when I took it in for routine maintenance.
I had to have it towed to the dealership where they informed me I needed a new transmission. This is very upsetting, we have owned other Nissan's in the past and they had double the mileage on them and there transmission had very failed. Disconnection and connection of battery cable from negative terminal. The only reason I don't care too much, is because the dealership I bought it from has a free lifetime power-train warranty with all new cars. I got it towed to the local Nissan dealership.
I will be contacting Nissan directly and will more than likely follow up legally. Even after the air was checked in the tires to make sure they were inflated properly, the sensor still came on over and over. I was expecting that we would be keeping this car for 10+ years. It's almost a new car and the transmission failed out of nowhere on 78k miles!! For drivers, it feels very much like the automatic transmissions they are familiar with. This shifts the transmission down into a lower gear, depending on the vehicle speed.
The 86 Sentra was great, Hardbody's no problems, 2005 Frontier transmission and timing chain issues. I am disappointed that Nissan is aware of the common problem and is doing nothing to correct it. When removing or disassembling each component, be careful not to damage or deform it. After using as a daily commuter and regular traveling something didn't seem right, the way it shifted and drove was a little off. Drove well, no issues and all scheduled maintenance done regularly at the dealer. I started doing Lyft January 2018 and the mileage increased to 68,000 by the time my transmission went out while I had two customers in the car on April 16, 2018 - this is right after I had an oil change on April 14, 2018.
Make the oil change light easier to reset. I just hope they don't blame it on my miles 97k they are all hwy and cruise control. Original review: June 17, 2018 I love Nissan Sentra, it's a great buy and I've never had problems with it. Nissan first adopted the Continuously Variable Transmission globally in 1992, and have gone through constant development, enhancement, and improvement ever since. The contact stated that an independent mechanic was contacted and the contact was informed that the transmission fluid needed to be replaced. July 1, 2018 For a while cracked radiators were the number one enemy of Nissan transmissions, but these days it appears the transmissions are their own worst enemy.
