2003 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

My battery/brake lights went on my 2003 Nissan murano and the engine died while I was on the highway. I lost my brakes and steering and almost caused a big accident on the highway with speeding cars behind me going 55-65 mph. I was able to start the car again but it died at the entrance of a one lane road leading to the fdr drive in New York city. Worse is that there a big construction under the 59th St. Bridge and I was stuck right in the middle of this construction and caused a major, major traffic from york avenue till fdr. I had to be pushed out of fdr (awds cannot be towed) and had to pay the tow truck. After that I had to call a flatbed to bring my car to the dealer. This should have been recalled long time ago so people do not go thru what I went thru. Do you have to wait till people die on the highway? the alternator and battery was replaced by dealer since it was under warranty. I was charged for the new battery! and of course, I had to pay for the towing.
