Notes: For years, Nissan trucks and SUVs have had problems with coolant destroying the transmission. And for years, Nissan has done nothing about it.

The 2007 is no different than the 2006 and 2005. Just avoid it.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Frontier. The contact stated that while driver 45 mph, he applied the brakes and the pedal depressed to the floor. The vehicle crashed into a tree as a result. A police report was not filed, but the contact suffered minor injuries. The vehicle was towed to an independent repair shop, but the contact was not informed why the brakes failed. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and offered no assistance. The failure and current mileages were 66,000.

On 01-13-2011 I was driving my 2007 Nissan Frontier pick up on pa sr 92S. Between nicholson and tunkhannock ABS and slip warning lights came on. I called my Nissan dealer immediately, explained the problem and difficulties I had handling the vehicle on the snow covered road. I was told that earliest appointment I could get was 01-20-2011. On my way back, when I drove on another snowy road I applied 4X4 system but it failed to engage. Now the ABS, slip and 4X4 did not work and I had hard times to make it safely home. I called the dealer again a was again told that I could get it fixed on 01-20-2011. I decided to report this problem and I hope that your investigation of my complain will make driving, especially winter driving of Nissan vehicles safer.

Purchased new 2007 Nissan Frontier-V-6, long wheel-base truck. Expierienced brake problem at 20K miles, replaced by dealer, had low speed whine and brake pedal drop to floor and 35 to 40 mph judder and vibration. Went back to dealer, they checked and noticed the drive shaft was comming apart, they replaced with new one, idicated it was defective from vendor. I have had this truck back into dealer four times since with the same re-occuring problems. They can't find the source or the problem. Zone mgr. For midwest drove the vehicle and indicated that they can't find the problem and they will not replace anything else. I was told to take it to the BBB if I wanted a solution under current lemon laws. He also indicated it will probably fall apart down the road-complete and utter dis-regard for my safety. They are in complete denial that they have a problem with this vehicle. Is it just now that Toyota had a recall for broken/cracked yokes on Tacoma's and Nissan is exempt" don't they all buy parts from dana Corp." Nissan has experienced a large sales surge and are expanding just like GM had in the 70's. they don't have time/talent to take care of their problems just more new vehicles, more engineering problems, push it out the door and let the dealers take care of problems. This somehow has a familiar ring to it like Toyota's problem with acceleration! keep relieing on electronic controls to run the vehicles and take away control fromthe driver. The auto companies need to be investigated further for safety compliance as madison avenue commercials alude to the fact that all of these safety features that are incorporated into vehicles work flawsley when they actually don't! how many more people have to be killed or seriously injured with these so-called safe vehicles, made in usa with cheap china made parts! I'm sure there are more vehicles out on the road with these same re-occuring problems not being replaced or repaired due to mfgr. Defects and problems!!!

When accelerator was pressed down there was an abnormal acceleration of vehicle while in slow traffic. It raced for a second then returned to normal. This has happened four times in the last 3 months. I checked to see if the floor mat had possibly caused this but the floor mat was under the gas peddle in the normal position.

I own a 2007 Nissan Frontier. The brakes were very soft making sudden stops difficult. There has not been an acident to date - only numerous near misses. I took the vehical back to the dealership with the problem, and was informed that brakes were fine and that was how brakes were supposed to be on that model.I was filing the complait to assit in collection of data for a potential recall or forced redesign of the braking system.
