problem #4

Altima 4-cyl

  • 92,000 miles


I was driving on hwy 610 in houston, Texas when the vehicle engine shut off and caught fire. I had gone to the dealership several times initially for a start up key issue, then tires, hub cap, and then the engine shut off on the hwy January 25th 2014, the warranty company noted that there were underlying issues with the vehicle when it was first sold, made a proposal to the dealership, and dealership eventually placed an engine I was told later by a younger gentleman named [xxx] that is was a sued engine. I had taken it home, and next day had issues again. Took it in to get spark plugs changed, but the end result was fire on the hwy way May 12, 2014. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Check engine light was on. The problem was diagnosed as a faulty seal between the fuel filler pipe and the gas cap. This requires sanding of the filler pipe. The same problem was fixed less than two years ago and the car has only 41,000 miles on it. When questioned about the repeat repair, the dealer indicated that 2 years was a "good" amount of time for this repair which usually has to be repeated in a year or year and a half. Since I have never had a car with this problem before, it sounds like defective parts and/or design to me.
