problem #28

May 102015


  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Quest. The contact stated that the fuel gauge provided an incorrect reading. The fuel gauge level read half a tank when the fuel tank was empty. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing; however, the contact did not have the name of the part that was needed. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 78,000. Updated 8/10/15

Quest 6-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
The first incident, occurring in the summer of 2014, caused my 2007 Nissan Quest to stall/shut off and nothing worked - it lost all steering, power, acceleration, braking, etc. It just died, going approximately 15mph while veering right to turn into a shopping center. This same incident occurred about a month later, while traveling approximately 25mph (posted speed limit) going uphill at night. Van just died and I was stranded on the road - lucky enough to get far enough near a private driveway not to get hit by a car, an to call for help. The fuel gauge was showing sufficient gas left in the tank, but it had run out of gas. We had put the vehicle in the shop for repair and luckily the mechanic was honest and smart and concluded that it needed fuel and the gauge was defective. Luckily on both occasions, none of our three children (one special needs) were in the van. This defect left us without a second (family transportation) vehicle for several days and to incur unnecessary auto shop costs. Secondly, we recently had suspension work done, totaling over $1300. There was apparently a recall for this, of which I was never made aware. The bolt defect was also never brought to my attention, but the rattling noise has existed since purchased used in 2011. These defects have caused potential endangerment to my family, incurred us costly shop/repair costs, and left us without a vehicle for days - highly dangerous and inconvenient, when all were known defects that should have been known to us and for which we should not have paid.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 130,190 miles
Driving approximately 45 mph, and engine stalled and cut out. Lost power steering and power brakes. Needed to make evasive moves to avoid accident and get off road. Car ran out of gas. Dashboard fuel gauge said 1/4 tank of gas. Onboard trip display said zero (0) distance till empty, but I do not use this. I had to get assistance and 1 put less than 1 gallon gas in car. Fuel gauge did not move and still says there is 1/4 tank gas, while trip computer registered above 0 dte. This is extremely dangerous to lose control of vehicle unexpectedly. I have been driving for over 27 years and have never run out of gas and have always relied on the gauge, not the trip computer. Please investigate and let me know what I should do. This is a very dangerous situation. I had 2 kids in the car, and I am grateful my wife was not driving, as she would have been unable to steer or apply brakes in such a situation when loss of power occurs under this situation. The trip computer can be wrong, but the fuel gauge on the dash board should always be correct. Basic principle.

There is no accident yet and wish not to happen anything like that. The car's fuel level gauge is malfunction since this month, December 2014 and I got a code for P0462. I found that it is very common troublesome in Nissan vehicles and many of their models are in recall but not 2007 Nissan Quest yet. I also learned that this vehicle is under investigate for this matter. Please process it soon.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 108,000 miles
I have run out of gas twice in the last 8 months. Fuel gauge reads 3/8 tank left and the computer said I had 72 miles left until empty. No low fuel light indicator. Took it into a Nissan dealer for them to read the service engine light, they said needed a new fuel sensor which in turn you needed a new fuel pump which runs into lots of money. Bought the fuel pump and was going to have it changed. The reading from the new fuel pump was the same reading as the old fuel pump " no change." I feel that Nissan doesn't understand the problems with their vehicles. They make you spend money that is unnecessary.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 124,814 miles
While traveling on a I - 94 West freeway the van lost power and stopped. The gas gauge showed the tank was quarter full, however there was no gas in the tank. The incident happened on a busy freeway, and there were children in the car. This is the 3rd time this has happened on the same vehicle. I had to call aaa to bring some gas. Based on what I've read online - this is not an isolated occurrence. Nissan has recalled cars with similar problems but not the Quest model. This is a very dangerous issue and could have resulted in deaths of my family.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 79,000 miles


First time, I was driving on busy traffic and looked at the gas gauge and it displayed another 40-50 miles to gas/fuel empty, but my Quest died as it ran out of gas; I had no warning or light came on. Second time, I was on the freeway driving at 60 mph and looked at the gas gauge and it displayed another 50-60 miles to gas/fuel empty; I felt my Quest was going to stop, so I was lucky to get out of freeway and my Quest died right after (out of gas). For both occasion, I had children on the van and extremely concerned that this issue just happen all of the sudden. For safety concerns, I took my Quest to auto mechanic and they confirmed that the fuel/gauge was not working and got it repaired.

Hi we were on way from niagara to harrisburg in our Nissan Quest 2007. There was no maintenance issue in my vehicle. I had a fuel filled at corning and on the way towards harrisburg on us-15 near to lawerenceville, my vehicle was on 65mph and suddenly the engine stopped and I pulled over to the shoulder. Luckily it got completely pulled over to the shoulder. The mechanic near toiga told me that the timing chain has snapped and has caused the engine damage and it is a known problem with the Nissan vehicle. Need your help to register the complaint.

Fuel ran out and locked steering and stalled vehicle in middle of 4 lane highway while fuel gauge showed half full tank. Nissan dealer found no fault in fuel gauge in May 28 2013, but 3 further similar incidents took place until we stopped depending on fuel gauge and refill every 100 miles.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 88,460 miles
Our 2007 Nissan Quest fuel gauge will show empty and the service engine soon light comes even though the tank is full. The entire fuel pump assembly was replaced at a cost of $814.62. Within a week the same problem occurred and ses light came back on. The fuel pump assembly was replaced again under a parts warranty from the work the previous week. After the second fuel pump assembly work was completed the ses light came on before I left the dealership's lot. Concern is safety related to running out of gas while on the road since the gauge mechanism isn't working.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 118,000 miles
Car stalled out on the highway, with the gas gauge showing slightly less than 1/4 tank remaining in the tank. Was able to coast to a stop within walking distance to gas station. Tank took a full 20 gallons (max capacity), after which the car ran fine. This occurred less than two weeks after having my fuel pump and injectors replaced. Nissan claims there is no connection between these incidents. Now I'm wondering if my original incident actual was a fuel pump, of if I simply ran out of fuel.

My wife was driving the car with kids in back, at traffic signal she stopped at left lane turn left. When left green signal was given, she released brakes and couldn't move as intended. She described to me that engine was running and as if all brakes were engaged. She made slowly left turn dragging car and stopped at right side of the road and called me asking that she is unable to move the car and engine is still running. She also informed that car is at safe area of road and could able to get out and walk to kids activity school. Upon arrival at the location, couldn't start and called for aaa help. Aaa tested battery and it was okay; fuel gauge was showing slightly below tank mark. Asked aaa to tow the car to my home as it was getting late in evening. While looking for details on internet for possible causes I noticed possibilities of wrong fuel indication. So added a gallon fuel and car started and worked normally. I am planned to switch the car with my wife to test this car next few week for safe operation.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 84,000 miles
Minutes after filling my Nissan Quest's fuel tank, I drove onto the freeway I then observed my gas gauge drop to empty and the " low fuel " light come on as well as the check engine light. When I reached my destination and turned the vehicle off and back on again to show my brother the problem everything was normal again. A few days later I was driving home on the freeway and ran out of gas having to call the state police.there was no indication that I was low on fuel. I visited a mechanic and he told me the complexity of the fuel system and the different sensors and advised me to report this problem. On May 20th I again filled up the tank and the fuel indicator light came on as well as the check engine.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 68,000 miles
The vehicle's fuel gauge in the instrument cluster has become faulty and unreliable. On numerous occasions since July of 2013 the van has lost power and has come to a stop. On two occasions this has happened at a high rate of speed in fairly congested traffic with small children in the vehicle. The gas gauge in the instrument cluster reads that there is a quarter (1/4) tank of gas when in fact the vehicle has run out of gas which, at a high rate of speed, creates a very dangerous situation. According to online posts of other '07 Nissan Quest van owners, Nissan service centers appear to be unsure as to what is causing the problem let alone how to address the problem. This appears to be consistent with the experience I had at the local Nissan service center that diagnosed our vehicle last July which is the same dealership we purchased the van new in 2007. Upon diagnostics, the service center indicated that it may be the fuel level sending unit in the fuel pump assembly or a faulty fuel gauge in the instrument cluster, both or something in between the two parts. Upon contacting Nissan Consumer Affairs last July to discuss the problem with them and asking them to address the problem as part of their recall for this very same issue on the Quest as well as other models of their vehicles, they declined claiming that the V.I.N. for our particular vehicle had not been recalled. If they have recalled other '07 Quests or other vehicles in their lineup over this issue then Nissan should stand behind any vehicle that is experiencing similar problems. The issue needs to be resolved before someone gets seriously injured or even killed.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 117,000 miles
My fuel gauge read that I had approximately 45 miles left in my tank. I had a short trip to the doctor's office with my child. I planned on stopping for gas after the appointment. I made it about a half a mile and the van stalled. Being that the gauge read that I had gas, I thought there was no way the van ran out of gas. After this incident, my gauge never read the fuel levels correctly again. When the gauge said it was at a quarter tank, it really meant it was on empty. I learned that during the second incident of running out of gas. My gauge now is empty at a half tank. It also randomly puts itself at empty after I know I put a full tank in. So, now I use my mileage to calculate how much gas is truly in the tank.
