Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles
While driving a child came in front of vehicle and the owner tried to use the horn and it didn't work. The owner noticed about two months ago the horn stopped working. Dealer charged 89 dollars for diagnosis, and reported that there was a problem with the wiring harness. Dealer reports that since the vehicle is past warranty, then there would be no financial responsibility on the part of Nissan. Owner noticed others have had the same problem with vehicle. The horn has not worked since the first failure, and there are no warning lights on in the vehicle. There was also a problem with the gas pedal sticking and the dealer reported that was a normal maintenance issue. Nissan reports that there is nothing they can do to help.

I have had multiple ongoing problems with this vehicle.. I have had to bring it in four times for an inoperative horn. I would discover that horn was not working, I'd bring it in and it would function, then a couple of months would pass and again it would be inoperative. They finally replaced the harness, and it has been working for 2 straight months. This might not seem like a big deal, but it is a safety issue. I have brought it in twice for a broken ignition wire. The first time they were unable to locate the problem. The car was released to me and two days later I had it towed in because it was dead. I have had break issues, my breaks were apparently warped and not functioning properly.the latest thing to go was the fuel pump. I was driving on the highway, in the middle lane, during rush hour when the car just stopped. I had no where to go and was stuck in the middle. A frightening experience. I am now told that they don't know when my car will be fixed, nor are they willing to provide me with alternate transportation. Am I just supposed to acceptt that all of this goes wrong with my 2001 car" I bought a new car so I would have safe and reliable transportation. This has yet to happen. These problems have plagued me since the beginning and its only getting worse. I am at kelly Nissan with a major issue an average of once every 3 months. I do not believe this car is safe to operate. What are my rights as a consumer"
