Nissan Altima New Transmission Failure
I bought a brand new 2013 Nissan Altima in April 2014 and in January 2015 and less than 35,000 miles, the car suddenly stopped moving while I was driving it in the city. It has been at a Nissan dealership for weeks. On week 4, they called and told me they have to replace the whole transmission, but without a new warranty on the part. I am absolutely terrified to drive my car. I have been reading dozens of horror stories on Consumer Affairs about the same make/model having the same issue. Even worse, the issues are happening again after the remanufactured transmission is installed. I owe $20,000 on my car and will take a serious financial hit if I try to sell or trade it in, but am seriously concerned about my safety. Other drivers have reported the transmission failing while driving up a mountain or in the middle of the highway while driving 55+ mph. I have read about class actions for other Nissan models due to the CVT transmission, but nothing has started for the issues with the Altimas. People's lives are at risk and no one is doing anything about it. From what I've read online, there is also good indication that Nissan knew about the issue, but rushed production of the design intentionally.
