I just purchased a brand new off the lot 2012 Nissan Sentra immediatly called the dealership upon leaving told them the alignment was off they said to bring it in and they would realign the car, in the meantime when I apply the brakes the car wants to keep going and throughs itself into another gear where it would lung forward, which means I am having to press on the brakes harder in order not to be thrown into traffic. I took the car in and at first they could not duplicat the problem then all of a sudden it is the transmission that needs to be repalced why is it a brand new car needs a new transmission"?" now they are telling me that they will extend the warranty for me really! wow why should the warranty be extended when I have a brand new car I keep asking for a new Sentra just switch it out make life easy on us all.

The car while trying to make a soft stop suddenly comes to an abrupt stop. While releasing the brake the car suddenly stops hard and causes the car to lurches forward. The system of the car seems to want to stop the car hard on systems own decision.
