Mt vehicle since I bought it with only 3 miles has when coming to a stop start to shake vigorously brought it to the attention when I had my ac compressor replaced at only 50,000 miles, mind you I do drive my vehicle alot 125 miles a day and its all highway but I also maintain it regularly// the vehicle going at 65 miles per hour the other day started to hesitate and rpms started to jump higher and lose power on a main highway during the afternoon in san antonio where traffic is bad I had my little girl and that loss of acceleration and jump /clunk almost caused me to get rear ended by a 18 wheeler which honked at me and scared my little girl// after research on this make and model I have found that there has been numerous complaints in the same regard same issue risking life and safety due to a fault that Nissan knows about due to recall they set for 03 - 10 years and models using the cvt transmission now my vehicle is a 2014 and after research see that many consumers are put in the same dangerous situation and have complained only for it to fall on deaf ears.

While driving 65 mph with cruise control on, the cruise control cut out and my car started slowing down. I depressed the gas pedal but the car continued to slow down to about 45 mph, then started slowly gaining speed. After work, I drove home without incident. Next day was foggy so not using cruise control. Vehicle slowed down again from 60 mph down to about 45 mph. Also got no response when depressing gas pedal. This time the traction control light on the dashboard came on. Drove home after work without incident. I had gotten the oil changed the day before the first incident happened. I had no previous problems prior to that. The issue seems to have resolved itself as the car is running fine now. If it occurs again, I'll have it checked out.

The contact owns a 2014 Nissan Sentra. The contact stated that while driving 70 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The vehicle was merged to the side of the road and failed to accelerate until the economy mode was turned off. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The technician was not able to duplicate the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 12,000.
