I have had the car back to the dealer on 4 different times, they claim to have fixed the airbag, but after the fix my light continues to be on intermittently even when an adult is in the passenger seat. I was told by the dealership that Nissan said the airbag would deploy even though the light wasn't working. I feel that Nissan is not honoring their warranty, I bought a new car and the light isn't working and I can't be sure the airbag is working either. I have also had problems with the electronic key, I was given a new battery in my fob but I still continue to get a no key detected at different times even when the car was running the dash will all of a sudden say no key detected. My last problem is with the car rolling back on a hill, I purchased an automatic, when stopped on a hill I have to gun the accelerator to stop the car from rolling back on the car behind me. The dealership informed me to treat the car like a manual and put my foot on the brake and the accelerator. The dealership told me there is nothing they can do that Nissan will not repair anymore transmissions. This is totally unacceptable for a new car, if there is a problem with the transmission they should fix it. Again I have had my SUV into the dealership multiple times for this problem.

It is a pity that Nissan includes a "navigation" system that will work only with maps of the country where they sell their vehicles. I use to drive into usa since I live close to the border; but I can't use the state of the art navigation system that Nissan install in their cars, because they don't do it for it. I spent a lot of time trying with their third party for navigation systems here (former navteq) to make possible to upload maps for North America without success. Definetely Nissan on this regards sucks!

The driver side view mirror creates a real blind spot for the driver. It is smack in the middle of your face and blocks your view to the left for making left turns. Also, at an intersection ( four way), you are unable to see a car stopped on your left awaiting to cross over or to make a left in front of you. I have had several near miss incidents and this is a real problem. The mirrors need to be redesigned and placed at a lower level thus giving you a clear view through the left or driver side window.
