problem #2

Nov 212017

Altima SV 2.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,146 miles


I was rolling to my business department, while I'm on the highway I start to recognize the engine turn off by itself and the car was about to stop on the traffic. THIS IS SO DANGEROUS, because it was happening in the highway !!! I was about 100 km/h.

I was so terrified for my life, but got the car on the side of the highway, and waited for a tow truck to

pick up this crap. THE CAR IS ONLY 63 000 KM and already gives me this kind a problem.

I will not recommend this car to anybody and hope they fix my problems or buy it back from me.

This doesn't make sense at all !

At least once a week the car has difficulty starting. the engine turns over but car won't start.

after trying a second time I press down on the gas pedal and after a few turn overs it will start.

problem started when it started getting cold in December. when using my remote starter.

began noticing this when using the remote starter,

when I use the remote starter, when I get to my car a few minutes later I noticed the car never started.
