  • 80,000 miles


This vehicle has approx 80K miles when heat stopped working and transmission started shifting hard. I was informed by my mechanic that coolant had mixed with the transmission fluid and that it was a known problem at Nissan. We replaced the radiator and fluids. A few months later the transmission is inoperable and Nissan has refused to acknowledge the issue. My mechanic at midas of richmond va informed me that he sees this problem all the time and that Nissan is doing nothing. Clearly, Nissan knew this was a problem and has refused to take any action due to the high cost of the repair. This is clearly a safety issue as well as a known defect issue. I cannot believe the manufacturer would be allowed to install a major vehicle component with a known defect and for the customer to have no recourse.
