Car does not go into gear. Slips out of gear when driving. Will not accelerate after stopping. It revs up and then accelerates quickly almost causing me to hit the car in front of me.

Without warning, the engine in my car intermittently shuts off while driving. This happens when the car is in motion. The car loses power to the steering wheel and breaks. Because the car is in motion when this occurs, I cannot put the car in park and restart it. I have to put it in neutral and turn the key to restart it. The problem seems to occur when driving the car for longer distances, although not on the highway. Use of the air conditioner or heat seem to make the issue worse. I have only had the check engine light flash once prior to this happening. The battery is still on, so the radio is still operational, as are all of the dashboard lights. I often don't know that the engine has shut off until I try to accelerate or break and am unable to do so. It is extremely unsafe. I have almost caused multiple accidents. I have taken the car to the Nissan dealership for a 5 point inspection and to have them drive the vehicle. I was turned away and they advised that they were unable to replicate the issue.

The control panel display looks to be out. It is very hard to read. It only dims or brightens but is not clear enough to read. This happened from one day to the next. The vehicle was not 2 years old yet and this should not have happened. This was not due to an accident it appears to be a manufacturing problem. The problem seems more likely, cause by a faulty electronic component

Front collision sensor goes off at random speeds while traveling forward with no one on the road ahead. The vehicle automatically applies the brake in some instances. The infotainment system also resets itself periodically. Prior service has had the entire body control module replaced, but electrical issues persist. Multiple dealers have not been able to recreate the problem even though issues are still present. Significant safety hazard by vehicle automatically applying brake randomly and Nissan still does nothing to resolve the issue. These instance happen on multiple occasions.

While driving vehicle it cut off and a got a message stating to check the chassis control system error. It was taken to dealer on Friday December 29, initially they said after running numerous test they couldn┐T find anything wrong so they gave me the keys and as soon as I drove off it did again, I immediately went back and they were able to see the message. They kept the vehicle and called me to inform me that they would be putting a new controller in the vehicle. On Tuesday Jan 2 I was told my car was ready, I picked it up drove home with no problem. On Jan 3 I drove to and from work with no problem. At approximately 700 as I was getting ready to go to church I turned the car on then all of sudden the lights started flashing and it wouldn┐T move or turn off, I also got the messsge again. My boyfriend disconnected the battery so that I would be able to turn the car off. Tomorrow Jan 4 I will be getting it towed back to the dealership.

Car feels like someone is pushing gas pedal an letting go during slow 30 mph. Dealer said normal. Heater wold work on heat after motor was heated approx after ten minutes drving time an could hear it kick in afterwards. Dealer replaced parts. Still same tech said normal.

Dealer made adjustments twice. Still same issue. Junkiest cheap car I ever owned an wish hadn't purchased it!

A/C line installed directly above alternator. On extended driving trips with A/C operating at maximum, condensation/moisture attached to line drips from line onto alternator causing battery light on dashboard to flicker momentary. This problem occurs periodically and the dealer/Nissan is not acknowledging the malfunction because the dealership cannot duplicate the issue when technician runs a diagnostic test. I installed insulation bought at lowe's and the problem ceased to occur. I then removed the insulation and the malfunction occurred again (repeatedly). I reinstalled insulation and malfunction ceased. Taking that action and the result is evidence that the problem is a design flaw. I requested that Nissan install prefabricated insulation as seen on the 2006 Honda CRV which has the same A/C line configuration, installed above the alternator. That is to prevent alternator being rendered inoperative from constant moisture infusion.

Nissan's intelligent key system automatically locks the car when a door is shut, even though the key is inside. We have had this happens two times this week. Maybe the latest version of their car software? we just got that updated. My wife unlocks all doors, opens passenger car door, puts purse with smart key in passenger seat, shuts door, opens rear passenger seat door, puts son in car seat, shut door and boom, car locks itself. Two times. Fire department had to come.
