My 2014 Nissan Sentra has issues with acceleration. At various times even with the accelerator full pushed down, the car will not accelerate and will eventually slow to under 20 mph even on a flat surface. Nissan has repaired the issue once, but now will not respond to my correspondence in regards to the issue, now the car is out of warranty and is having the same issue, I have less than 45K on the car. In addition, the tails lights are retaining moisture, I have read that this may be causing a short in the electrical system and may be the cause of the problem. I am afraid to drive the car and it is now parked in my driveway. This has happened multiple times and the problem still remains unresolved. Mileage at the first incident is approximate, but it did happen less than a year after purchasing the car new.

Sentra 4-cyl

  • miles
New 2014 Nissan Sentra, purchased at Nissan dealer, hanlee's hilltop Nissan, in richmond California, in 2014, accelerated out of control on January 8, 2015 causing injury to driver and occupant. The vehicle accelerated on its own and struck into a wall with enough force to cause airbags to deploy. Owner had brought car to dealer, previous to January 8, 2015 to complain about unintended acceleration and was advised by dealer technicians, after test drive, that there was no problem with the vehicle's acceleration. Passenger required hospitalization and suffered broken bones to wrist and vertebrae. Driver, so far, appears to have suffered soft tissue injuries.
