Transmission has been slipping. Happens frequently when stopped at a red light, stop sign...when time to go car does not move. Complained to Nissan dealer in 2014 and they suggested changing the fluid...could not find any problems. Fluid was changed and I am still having problems. Will be taking it to another dealer this week. I understand Nissan has had major issues with coolant leaking into transmission as I had a 2005 Nissan Frontier and this is what happened to me. Nissan would not compensate me as my mileage was 100+K. when I treaded in my 2005 for a 2010 I was assured that Nissan had fixed the defect. Here we go again...I should have known better!

The contact owns a 2010 Nissan Frontier. While pulling out from a parking spot in reverse, the contact's foot became stuck near the accelerator pedal and the brake pedal causing the vehicle to surge at a high rate of speed to 80 mph. The contact had extreme difficulty getting his foot released from the accelerator pedal and the vehicle crashed into a vehicle in reverse and into shopping carts which then crashed into a third vehicle. The driver and the front passenger sustained whip lash, back pains and minor bruising. A police report was filed. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was not available.
