Altima 6-cyl

  • 32,000 miles


I have taken my car into the dealership 5 times due to the fact that my clutch sticks to the floor and I have to manually pull it up. Each time that I have taken it they have provided no remedy. I expressed several time of how it has put me in dangerous situations while driving and got the sorry bout your luck tune. The last time it happened it resulted in my wife having a wreck in the car. I called the dealership and have filed two complaints with the manufacturer and get the same treatment.

On occasion/randomly the clutch on the 2008 Nissan Altima coupe will sink to the floor which does not enable the driver to shift the vehicle. The dealer replaced the master cylinder in the past to repair but the same situation has arisen. Not having ability to shift can stall the vehicle and reder it inoperable in the middle of the freeway, on an off-ramp, in an intersection, etc. This is unacceptable.
