Consumer Complaints and Reviews
I gave my car for the service which supposed to be under warranty. Initial phone from customer service asking for $300 and later on final bill more than $500!!! For flushing the fuel path!!! The labor rate was $135.0 per hour and calculated for 3 hours. Most of the service person I encounter as novice apprentice!!! And the topping was the annoying service manager (Mike) seems that he was hand picked from. I believe the Nissan business in North Vancouver is very dull and slow and the service manager wants to make money but it's a rip off.
So, I had a broken coil spring on my 2009 Versa. I contacted my dealer and told him that my car only had 75k miles, and I thought it was crazy that a coil spring should break with so few miles. I am close to 70 years old, and I drive responsibly, avoiding pot holes etc. I was told by the dealer that this was not covered and it would cost me $450.00 to replace the springs. Being on a fixed income, I thought that was outrageous. I then called Nissan and filed a report, and a factory rep did check into it and again I was denied compensation of any kind. After much searching I finally found the coil springs on sale for $57.42 each, from another Nissan dealer. I also purchased the rubber seats for the top and bottom of each spring for $21.20. So, with parts, sales tax, and shipping my total cost was $147.32.
I asked one of my family members if he could install the on my car and he said it would be easy, being that only one bolt needed to be removed before installing the rubber seats and springs. I left the car with him and within one hour he called me and said it was done. WHAT, that quick? He said that it was an easy job, and it only took him about 15 minutes to install both springs. I tried to pay him $50 and he said he didn't want to take advantage of me and handed $30 back to me. So I saved $282.68 that I would have had to pay to Nissan for the same work! I also should mention that my step son said he would like to do about 20 of these coil spring jobs a week. They were that easy! I understand that companies need to make a profit, but come on, this is over the top! This experience has turned me from a extremely satisfied customer to a skeptic about future work to be performed by the dealership.
I bought a Nissan about 5 months ago. They were ready and willing to help me in a car. They went out and brought the Nissan to show me. About 3 or 4 months ago the car had places on the hood and trunk of the car. I took the car to the Nissan place in Greer S.C. They looked at it said rocks from the road did this. Well don't you think I would have felt and seen when the rocks would have hit my car? As big as the places are, they would not help me! But if I was going to buy a car they would have been all over me! I took it to a man that paints cars. They said take it to Nissan where I bought it that it was in the paint! They tried to say it was rocks that did it. The man that looked at it picked at it and made it worst.
I told him I wish he would stop doing that he was making it worst! That's when he said he couldn't help me! That paint guy could have charged me to paint the car, but he was honest to tell me that! Somebody told me I could make that man pay for the damage he done to my car picking at it the way he did! I love the way the car rides now but I'm afraid it might fall apart any time. Wish I had never bought the car from Nissan. I'm very very unhappy with those people and the car the way it looks! I can't afford to trade the car or I would, but not with them! My husband died in Dec and it's hard on me to change cars right now. They got all my money!
While driving down the highway, a tire started to deflate. I called the dealership and let them know it was deflating for unknown reasons and they said even though I hadn't purchased the tire warranty that they would patch it and I would have no issues. So I brought it in and with one look they said they wouldn't patch it and I had to buy a replacement because it showed wear on the sidewall. Which it didn't have wear, the dirt was just not as noticeable after being almost flat for an eighth of a mile until I could pull off the highway to put the donut on. It cost me $290, as the rest of the vehicle is under warranty I didn't want to risk any interference of that by having 3rd party work done on it. But even under manufacturer's standards it is covered since the tread wear is 1/32" off of brand new and there was only 8000 miles on the car.
Their consumer affairs dept. called me back and basically said since I didn't pay extra for a warranty on the tires of the brand new vehicle that there was nothing they would do. But yet the tire they put on to replace automatically had a warranty. Am I the only one baffled by this logic? I will never buy another Nissan ever. They are rude and condescending and awful at listening and helping the people paying for their salary.
Nissan Rouge with severe problem and poor customer service. I have bought Nissan Rouge #VIN NO: **. I went for the first servicing on 04/20/16. They have done servicing and report states the car doesn't have any issues. I was facing problem with the car while driving around 70-75 miles/hour suddenly brake light was coming on the dashboard. I thought this is a safety issue and reported to Local Nissan Dealer Airport Nissan Cleveland on 5/16/16. They said they couldn't replicate the problem. And after that I have faced the same problem again and reached to the Airport Nissan on 07/06/16. This time with evidence.
They have done the servicing and returned my car on 07/09/16, unfortunately one day only I have faced the same issue with that car. I am afraid Nissan has not taken this case seriously enough. Is this normal to happen with every Nissan car? Why this problem is keep on coming after 3 times of servicing. I am totally disappointed with Nissan Customer Service. Now whenever I am trying to press the brake the car is vibrating.

In August of 2014 I purchased a year end Model Altima, my trade was a 2011 Nissan rogue for which I still owed 13000 on. I was given more than I owed on the trade. The sale from this point upon hindsight was extremely sketchy. There was no negotiation on the price of the new car. They simply presented you with 3 payment plans and dollar amounts for repayment so as the price of the vehicle was never mentioned. (There was zero negotiation.) We were just simply taken advantage of because of the excitement we had of owning the new vehicle...
Forward to today, we are looking to turn the 2 vehicles we own into 1 vehicle but upon looking up the value of the Altima we would be 7000 under water with its current value. Almost impossible. I can see a thousand or 2 but 7 is just wrong and this dealership is just extremely bad and sketchy. If I were you, I would look elsewhere or consider yourself married til your final payment with what you buy from them. They will prey on you and take advantage of you through their sales tactics. It's sad. They should look to make good on bad deals that people like me call them out on!!!
I have a 2010 Nissan Versa sedan. I have had the service engine light on almost the entire time I've had the car, or at least since the warranty ran out. The diagnostic code indicates a fuel system leak, which has already been recalled on other models but not mine. I am also experiencing fuel pressure regulator problems, which was also a technical service bulletin for other Nissan Versa's just not my VIN number. I'm furious that known problems aren't being evaluated properly for all years and/or models. I've had my car in the shop several times because it won't start, FPR issues.
I'm spending my money on rental cars and inspections of my vehicle while I'm still paying off my Nissan Versa and Nissan isn't doing anything about a problem that is known because they are limiting which VIN numbers to provide service to. However, the dealer who has provided service for other recalls on my vehicle keeps calling me trying to get me to buy another Nissan. I feel they are aware of the problem and instead of offering service they want me to buy another Nissan. I'm disgusted with the lack of service for known problems. I feel these issues need to be expanded to other year makes outside of the bulletin as it is tight now.
2009 Murano purchased new at 109k check engine light came on (code 011). Dealer says that the seal/gasket for the timing chain needs to be replaced. Parts $25, labor $2400. Nissan Consumer Affairs covers 80% dealer covered 10% and I was responsible for the rest. Still not happy that my engine has to come out and there are no guarantees after the vehicle will be in the shop 2 full days, SCARY! Nissan seemed helpful.
On August 5th I wrote a review concerning my tires on the 2014 Nissan Altima with only 11000 miles on the tires. The follow-up review is that I notified Nissan company about this problem and in turn they reimbursed me the amount of the new tires that I bought. I informed them that they needed to drop the continental Tires from their new cars because of the safety issues concerning them. Because of this decision from Nissan to reimburse me for my new tires I was continue to be a loyal Nissan customer although will never buy another car with a Continental tire on it.
A couple of years after purchasing my 2008 Nissan Rogue I began hearing a whining sound coming from the transmission while driving on long road trips. Eventually while on a road trip I was suddenly unable to accelerate. The pedal was down to the floor but rather than pick up speed, the vehicle would decelerate and was unable to even reach the speed limit on the highway.
After bringing it to Nissan they said they would replace the transmission. A couple of years later I now have the same exact problem again. So it seems Nissan decided to replace the transmission with yet another faulty one or perhaps didn't even actually replace it the first time and did a temporary fix of some kind just so that the warranty would expire before it happened again.
When I brought it back to Nissan again telling them the same problem has occurred they said they couldn't find anything wrong and refused to fix it. Nissan is fully aware of the problem as they now provide a fix for the faulty transmission but if course at the owner's expense. That is ridiculous as Nissan should be held accountable for this faulty transmission and should eat the cost of replacing it or installing the fix since they were incapable of making a quality transmission in the first place. I am outraged that they have gotten away with this and can't believe a company should be able to take advantage of customers in this way. Shame on Nissan and I hope that everyone who wants a quality car from a company that cares about its customers stays far away from Nissan as you will be sorely disappointed!
This is Surya. Experienced Nissan Versa for the first time and it was an horrible situation to drive on the interstate which is very uncomfortable. The pick up is not good and the transmission is BAD that you can feel like jumping when gears changes even though it's a automatic transmission. If you are driving in a hot sunny day forget about air conditioning, because it doesn't work even if you switch to high mode. Finally I had a real bad experience in Nissan Versa because of "Hertz" (Car Rental).
I purchased a brand new Nissan rogue. It gets ten miles to the gallon. Horrible mileage. I called Nissan and they made me drive all over the place to dealers to get it checked. The mileage is still terrible. Nissan is telling me the advertised mileage of 23-30 mpg is an estimate only so if I'm getting ten mpg, they are not responsible and they will not help me in any way. I feel lied to, this is my last Nissan. I contacted the attorney general, so far no response.
I had a horrible experience in every aspect of my purchase. I had a truck moved from my dealership's lot a few miles away. I asked to wait to view the truck in person BEFORE signing any documents. I was assured that the documents I was signing were related to the loan and extended warranty and I would be able to see the vehicle before signing. I was offered $2000 off by another dealer but it was too late, unknown to me I already signed. I had to purchase bed extender and was supposed to receive 15% off for my VIP package, negative, paid full price.
I took my truck in for service and spent over 2 hours watching soap operas for an OIL CHANGE!!! Last straw was my driver's door. The door is not aligned properly. When opening the door falls and causes and overlap with the rear door. It closes with some force. I took to the dealership for repair under warranty. I was leaving town for a few days and had to take a cab to the airport to get a rental. I was called and told my truck was ready.
I returned and took another cab ride to pick up my truck. SAME PROBLEM. The dealer did offer me a loaner which was nice BUT upon returning to get my truck a second time... SAME PROBLEM!!! I will likely never buy another Nissan EVER!!! The only reason I purchased this one is that there were limited options. I was driving a 2014 RAM 1500 Crew cab which I loved but I live in the city/suburbs and needed something smaller for daily driving. The only options were Tacoma, Frontier or Colorado. The Frontier won based on size and price. I'm now wishing I had paid extra for a better product and service. I've had nothing but problems from the purchase to service.
I recently discovered that my 2015 Nissan Altima payment is somehow behind on payments starting in March of 2016. The reason this is a problem is I was never notified that I was behind and have been paying my monthly payments on time only to find out that it has not been on time in 5 months. This is also surprising due to the facts that I tried to make a double payment at one time only to receive a recorded phone call from a Nissan rep stating that they see that I was trying to stay ahead and pay on time but you cannot pay a month in advance. That a payment must be made every thirty (30) days at which time I should have been notified that I was a month behind which was definitely not the case. I also never received a phone call nor a letter in the mail stating any indication that I was behind on payments.
We are now in August of 2016 and I am now have 5 months of late payments on my record that will no doubt kill my credit score. I recently set up a direct deposit at Pyramid Federal Credit Union to have the payments pulled straight from my account. So I have been back and forth with customer service which is more like "we don't care about you at all" service as the rep admitted that you don't have to be smart to do customer service which is funny because that is exactly what he is and definitely was not talented nor good at his job.
Anyway after writing several letters and tons of phone calls where they hang up on you I have got nowhere. They have not even asked one time if they could look into the matter and get back, let me see what I can do, nothing. I simply want to know why I was never notified, a letter sent, an email or a phone call and now that I am aware that I am getting burned every month I have pleaded with them for some kind of reconciliation. I have offered to make multiple payments in a row along with the direct deposit payment along with the payment history that shows every payment on time. But in the end I guess it really does not matter to them as I am nobody of importance and apparently they don't make mistakes despite the hundreds of bad reviews. My next step is the BBB and on and on as this is unbelievable and can imagine I am not the first this has happen to and definitely not the last. Keep up the good work Nissan!!!
Had key made a remote to open doors. Cost approx $250, including $60 labor. With appointment, took over 2 hours. After going home, realized remote would not open driver's door. Went back to resolve and was told there was an issue with the lock of the driver's door and would cost in excess of $500 to repair. Should have been advised this before leaving with the remote. I was advised they would refund the remote, but not the labor fee. UNHAPPY with the customer service with no satisfaction. I had to go back and spend more of my time to try to rectify a problem that should have been addressed when I left with the remote. Stefan ** told me they are currently going through lots of changes, new computers, new phones, etc. Not my problem. Take care of my situation and refund labor or meet me halfway. "Sorry" was his response. True, they are SORRY.
DON'T BUY NISSAN SENTRA - I say sentra because that's what I own. Purchased a 2013 sentra and the car haven been back to the dealer more than I have been to the doctor during the same period. Too many problems. As of Aug 16th 2016 less than 34,000K miles: Oil leak steering rack, CVT slips and poor acceleration, Brake noise, Shock replaced below 20k miles, Air bag light - countless, Dead battery - replaced 3 times in 3 years - I tired of telling dealer it's not the battery. Stupid! Smelly AC - Like dead animal, Rear bumper color changed... parked in garage all the time... sun isn't a factor. Work from home. DON'T BUY.
On the issue of dead battery... well I went to two funerals out of the country in July and Sept 2014. Gone for 3-4 days each time. Arrive well guess what? Car didn't start.. In October of the same year went on a cruise Friday got back Monday... won't start. August 12th 2016 went to get an oil change. Got out of the car at the dealer, give the key to the guy at the desk. Ten minutes later he walks inside... "Sir do you have a set of keys on you?" "NO...I just give it to you" I repiled. Rep. replied.. "The car won't start."
Okay... they jumped it... which it started. Did battery test etc... said all is good. Saturday morning it started... just wanted to check. Wife and I decided to go for dinner selected a place... one hour drive away from home. "Not just for the food okay" - for the drive and spend time together. Well after we got dressed around 6pm ready to go... car won't start. Ok I got a jump and off we go. After 11pm we decide to head home, got to the parking lot car won't start. Finally close to midnight someone give us a jump.. it started and we left for home. Got home without any issues.
Next morning 9am sunday... well not even a jump could help it... it was DEAD but I must say it was trying to turn over but it couldn't get there. Lights started flashing, beeping etc... like Christmas. Finally after trying well there wasn't any juice left. I GIVE UP... THERE GOES MY SUNDAY. Called Nissan Monday morning. Customer service said they won't get it towed. I had to pay out of my pocket... that did it. I let loose on the rep. but after apologized to her not her fault... but I was pissed. I told her let a manger called me. They said 24hrs. So 2 days wait... now I used my AAA and towed the vehicle. Battery changed again. Car is running for now. Today I missed the mgr call. I returned the call and left a message....
Went to a local Nissan to buy a car. The salesman went out of his way to help me. I told them upfront that I had a bankruptcy on my credit report. Was told no problem. They wanted to put me in a 2016 Sentra. We finally agreed on the price, and I had a co-signer with a very high credit score that was going to sign for me. On the phone was told there would be no problem that payments would be where I wanted them. Left work early again for the second time thinking I was going to walk away with a car. When salesman came out I could tell something was wrong. He told me that they could not get Nissan Financial to move one bit. If that is way the financial dept is going to be they need to remove bankruptcy ok from the Nissan ad. Walked away devastated with the financial dept of Nissan, so now I'm taking my business somewhere else. They lost a sale on this one.
Hello I'm owner of dealership for past 12 years. I been we sell all models of cars but I will never ever ever ever buy another Nissan with cvt transmission. They are nothing but junk junk junk. Past 5 years I have purchased over 20 Nissan Altima or Rogue or Sentra with cvt transmission. Same day I sell, second day I have to tow the car back to lot. Please don't give Nissan Corporation money even if your car goes bad. Don't make no more payment on piece of ** Nissan junk.
I purchased the Versa from a Toyota dealer; May 5, 2015. After having it for a little over six months the battery went dead. I had to purchase a new battery. On August 7, was heading home from Las Vegas. It was bumper to bumper traffic then there was a brake. I tried to accelerate there was a resistant. It picked up speed and just cut off. I had no brakes. It was if the interlock system shut off everything. At that time traffic slowed down. I turned on my hazard lights and barely get over to shoulder without an accident. It was coasting with no brakes then there was this downhill slope. The speed picked up. I was praying that no other car got in front of me. A car did get in front of me but it quickly got back over. I thought I was going to have to drive the car into the dessert in order to stop it if the shoulder ran out.
I came upon an exit and got off. It was an overpass with a steep hill, that stopped it. Then at that time I was able to pull up the emergency brake. I was stopped in the middle of two lane traffic; one lane coming and one going. I was still in danger of being hit by another vehicle. I was terrified as well as my family. Stuck in the desert in an unsafe spot. Others stopped after an hour and moved the car to a safer spot.
I called the tow truck, to be towed 194 miles home. It took the tow truck over two and a half hours. I was afraid it was getting dark. We had no water. My mother is 81 years old. I saw three other Nissan Versas stranded besides my. Once the tow truck got there and hooked my car up, got in, and had a conversation with him. He said last week he picked up three Versas. They said the same thing I said. Their car just shut off. Took my car to Nissan car dealer in Alhambra, California on Main St. to find out it shut down because of the CVT. There was a recall on August 2015.
On 2013 thru 2015 Versas, I also had another recall on some part that went under the brake. I didn't get a letter informing me of the recall. When asked why not, they told me I was not in their system as owning a Nissan. I said I am a registered owner with the DMV. Don't the two share database? I don't believe it. There has to be a law. So just wait until I have a close encounter or die to find out about the recall. Nissan has no remorse. They told me my transmission need service.
After all that I've been through, you would think they would take care of that? Nissan has this slogan, "Ride in a Nissan with confidence." My first car at seventeen was a Datsun 510 brand new off the lot. Come to think of it, I had it long enough to just pay for it. No wonder they don't make them anymore. Nissan need to be put out of business. They are putting out bad cars that are going to cost many people their lives. They have poor customer service. After all that Nissan called me to upgrade a purchase on a new car, I said, "Are you serious?" I don't even like Nissan anymore. I will accelerate this complaint to social media. I'm going to sue. I will try everything. Even a class action, because I know this is happening to thousands. We can't just sit still and allow any and everything to happen to us. If we don't stand for something, we will fall for anything. I will never buy another Nissan.
I purchased a 2008 Nissan Rogue in March 2009 with only 9700 miles on it. Within 45 days of purchase, the vehicle needed a CVT replacement. Over the years I continued to experience various issues with the vehicle and found myself visiting the dealership every three months or less. The CVT failed again in April 2014. I was covered by the extended warranty (120,000 mile/10 year) with only 118K on the vehicle. Unfortunately, two years and 15K miles later, the CVT installed in 2014 has also failed and the vehicle needs a third replacement. Nissan said the CVT is covered by a one year/12K mile warranty. Despite knowing the part is defective, Nissan is not stepping up to assist with this most recent failure, not even offering a discount on the service or part to help offset the cost of their faulty part.
On top of the poor quality of these CVTs, Nissan's customer service is a huge failure. Their consumer affairs representatives do not communicate and then completely blow you off once they have decided to deny your request for assistance or coverage on the faulty part (clearly they do not understand part of their jobs as customer service representatives is providing results and sometimes bad news to customer, not just ignoring them). Nissan closed my case without ever speaking to me regarding the final results of the investigation. I have approached the local dealership directly in an effort to receive a quote for this repair and have been waiting two days for a service rep to call me back with the estimate despite follow calls to inquire on the situation. Nissan has failed on both quality and service.
Nissan cannot find what is causing my 2016 Nissan w/600 miles to stall. Pulling into traffic it will sometime stall to the point of just barley rolling. In heavy traffic it sometimes is dangerous for me and my family. Other than that, it is a dream to drive.
I bought a 2016 Nissan Maxima on May 10, 2016. Three weeks later I hit a deer with the car. Three months later I am still waiting to have the car fixed. Apparently the problem has been a wire harness that affected the airbags and seatbelts. Nissan is taking their sweet time getting the wire harnesses to Valley Nissan to start with. Now my insurance adjuster told me that Valley Nissan had gotten the wire harnesses for the car two weeks ago and they have not bothered to put them in yet. I am still waiting on Valley Nissan to fix it. I am still three months later waiting for this car to be fixed and daily I get the normal response that I'll be getting the car the next day but never do. I will never ever buy a Nissan product from Valley Nissan nor will I ever buy a Nissan product.
I own a Nissan Juke MY 2013, mileage of 67,000 km, ever since I purchased the car and I am complaining that it is not giving the full power even when I press on the pedal. I have missed the service for 10.000 km back in 2015 and when I visited them in December 2016 I asked them to do the major service and repair whatever is in the car. Everything went smooth, no issues in the car and I took it back. On July 19th 2016 I took the car there for a quick service and complained about the same issue. (Car doesn't give full power.) They got back to me with the fact that the CVT assembly have an internal defect and that my warranty will not cover it because of the missed service.
I work for one of the biggest automotive companies as a Warranty specialist in the middle east office which means I know my rights and the customer's right. This of course raised many questions: When I bought the car from Al Rostamani I was informed that the car comes with 5 years warranty / 100 km. Apparently the car comes with 3 years only and the other two years are insurance warranty. (Dubai insurance.) I did NOT receive or signed any legal; document which shows me the terms and conditions of this insurance warranty, only the terms and conditions in the service booklet which obviously doesn't say: Your warranty will be void if you missed a service.
I asked the service advisor in Dubai: Did it fail due to low amount of transmission oil? NO. Did you find any metal particles in the transmission oil or the oil was burned? NO. And since they cannot disassemble the transmission, then how did they know that it was misused!!! The middle east office offered 75% coverage on the repair. And I do appreciate it but: legally speaking, is it fair to charge the customer for a product defect, the missed service have no direct impact on the damage, if it did then it would fail in December when I got the car there for a full check. I am completely disappointed in how they are marketing for these "5 years warranty" just to increase their sales. I am definitely raising this to the consumer protection, as soon as I receive an official letter from the dealer in Dubai and Nissan middle east providing me with the T&C of my warranty and a valid reason on why the repair is not covered.
Financed a 2013 Altima SV. From the get-go I had signs that CVT transmission is bogus. Getting onto the highway it would rev up to 5k RPM and not shift up every now and then. AC went out around 70k mls, would only work when I'm driving. Then around 100k mls the transmission started having issues. Vehicle would just die when I come to a red light or stop sign every now and then. Then it got worse - if I slow down and do a "california stop" the rpms would drop below 1k and engine felt like it was going to die. Then finally vehicle just died when I came to a stop sign. I turn it on, runs fine, I put it in gear and it dies. Just jerks forward and dies. Brought it to Nissan dealer. They said needs transmission - not telling me what actually failed in the transmission. Mechanics do not know anything about transmissions.
They rang up a $4500 bill for a new transmission. I could not afford this bill and they ended up getting me into ANOTHER CVT Altima. When I clearly told them I do not want a Nissan CVT but they said that is the only thing they can do. Without any other means of transportation I had to take this deal in order for me to keep my job. After getting a unwanted second CVT Altima - I started asking around. One of the mechanics told me you are suppose to change the transmission fluid every 6 months. Another mechanic told me it's a sealed transmission and you shouldn't have to do anything to it. Another told me check it every now and then. Manual says to check it at 60k. None of the mechanics or service advisers gave me same story.
Vehicle put me in danger by shutting down with 18 wheelers behind me honking at the green light. Vehicle is dangerous to drive as it is unstable in windy weather. The hood itself looks like it's going to fly away by all the shaking it's doing when you are driving on the highway. Now Nissan holds NO VALUE! Nissan corporation floods the market with cheaply made vehicles that break down and MAKE you get into another Nissan. The Nissan I got into 2015 was priced at $25,000+ retail. 4 months later with 13k mls - it's worth $13000 at best. Now this is a $12,000 value drop in 4 months? Really Nissan? I ended up taking a repo on this POS. And guess what? When you tell Nissan you are doing a voluntary surrender - they put you on an hour wait or just hang up. They were so quick to take my money, but when I want to give them their POS back they drag it out. Come on Nissan. This is no way to treat your customers.
No wonder your power train warranty is only up to 60k mls. Because you know your vehicles will not stand the test of time. Nissan is here for a quick buck. They put you in a vehicle that breaks down or loses value so quickly that you are always upside down. So you are either stuck financing another Nissan with a "discount" or taking a repo, or if you are lucky paying it off and dumping it as quick as you can. I was a loyal customer to Nissan for over 3 years. Never missed or was late on a single payment. Mandatory service at Nissan dealer and your vehicle breaks down at 100k? Your stickers should say "Don't plan to drive this forever". Clean up your act Nissan. Teach your mechanics how to service your transmission properly or replace them when they break down like you expect. Nissan, you lost another loyal customer and I will never buy a Nissan product again. You should be ashamed!
I dropped off my car Monday, 8/1 Nissan Service Dept. for replacements & repairs that I waited for one month due to my front end collision car accident. I spoke Carrie Service Advisor, Tuesday, 8/2 and she was so nice saying everything is going to be done as we went over the repair list and I told her that I would like to speak to Mark the Tech when I come to pick up my car on Thursday, 8/4. She agreed. I went to the front service desk and asked to speak to Mark. Carrie comes instead with an attitude like "what is it". She says "he’s helping someone". I told her "I would wait for him" (My insurance company Hartford paid them to do the repairs and the extension repairs).
I had to ask for alignment after they said everything was repaired. So only then did they notice the R/F camber and FRT Cross Camber was damage. Mark told me that he took it out for a ride and he thought it was ok instead of performing an alignment. Back to Carrie, she walked me out to my car and I asked her about the replacement on the driver seat belt which has too much slack and not enough tension. She said they replaced it but it turns out to have the very same problem as when I took it in to be exchanged. Carrie and I both sat in the driver seat and it wouldn’t lock. So Carrie gets a Tech and he sits in the seat and it doesn't work for him either. It wouldn't lock with even a rapid pull, and the new repair order said “new belt works fine” (I don’t think it was replaced – same problem).
So the Tech says to me that the original manufacturer belt should never have locked, only the passenger side does for Child Seats (I couldn’t believe he said that to me. No one puts young toddler in passenger seat). Then the Tech says to me, “Believe me if you ever get in another accident the belt will work”. This statement to me is NOT ACCEPTABLE nor does it make me feel any BETTER. Why is it that the passenger seat locks and that was replaced the same time as the driver's seatbelt. So end result is that my seatbelt is no different than when I dropped the car off on Monday, 8/1 to be replaced as promised. I believe Nissan is putting my life in danger. I do not feel protected. The tech said to me that I need to get over the fear from my car accident.
I explained to Carrie and the Tech that I don’t feel secure or safe without the seat locking. So Carrie says to me to call 1-800- Nissan. And Carrie and the Tech walked away from my car. As I began to drive off the parking lot with amazement, the Tech ran out with a flyer explaining Seat Belt Function Stationary Check. It reads: Grasp the shoulder webbing and pull forward quickly. The retractor should LOCK and prevent the belt from extending further. And this action new happened.
I went home and I called another car dealership and they said it should lock at least when I bend forward. Can you please HELP me - is this a faulty seatbelt and I would just like to talk to the tech Mark who did the work on my car accident. I have some questions & concerns about my alignment. I was to get a 4 wheel full alignment and they did a Thrust Angle Alignment, is that partial or full alignment. I would like a print out of the alignment before and after to see the results. I need to know if my car frame is ok. I asked for copies of the paperwork that I signed and the person at the service desk wouldn't do it me. They gave me the GUEST COPY. I would like copies for my Insurance Records.
I am very disappointed to come on here and do this. I bought a 2012 Nissan Versa in 2014. I loved that car. At the time the dealership seemed nice. It was all handshakes and "how can we help you." Fast forward till today and they are the single worst entity I have ever had to deal with. Background: I unfortunately was in a car accident (no one was hurt) but my car was totaled. I wasn't an idiot, I had all the insurance I needed including GAP. I put in all my paperwork, work with the loan company and my insurance and the GAP company. Everything was going fine. Then, the woman from the GAP company emailed me saying that Nissan was insisting that I received the Security Plus extended service contract for free (which it clearly states on my Finance contact I was charged $935 for). I think to myself, not a big deal, I have my copy of the finance contract. I had already sent it to her, so I didn't see a problem. But there was a huge problem.
The Gap company gets a cancellation quote for these services. But since Nissan was insisting I got it for free she couldn't get a quote. So, she calls Nissan, Nissan tells her I have to call. I call them. They say I have to speak to the dealership (which I am not at all in close proximity to at this point), but they are more than happy to contact the dealership and have them reach out to me. They said it would take probably a day before I heard back. Well, I never heard back from Edison Nissan. I called the woman back, but she stopped answering her phone weeks ago. She also will not return any of my messages. Her name is Janeesha, run the other way if you have to talk to her.
This is a unique thing I have run into with this. I called the dealership myself trying to speak to someone in Finance a few times. Well, what they always do is transfer me to someone with a full mailbox. I can't leave message (not that I think they would call me back if they did get my message), the phone doesn't even ring. I call back and when the sales person answers (there is not published number for Finance because why would anyone need that), I ask for a direct line. They can't give it to me.
So, I have upped the game on them, so now it's their turn to up the game (I guess, that is what it feels like, like they are playing games with me and my finances). They say, "well, I can transfer you to reception and they should have numbers they can give you." "Great" I say, "Put me through." I thank the guy on the other end of phone, he transfers me to a voicemail, that says for me to leave a message, then promptly hangs up the phone so I can't leave a message.
It's a shame. Their cars are awesome in my opinion. But I would never ever buy another car from Nissan because I would have to deal with a horrible dealership or a terrible phone support team. These people are only interested in you when you are ready to give them money. I get that, I do. I'm not trying to vilify them, I know they're profit driven like any company. But I find the fact that I can't get 5 minutes of a single person's time when I actually need them to do something for me! I knew what I wanted to buy when I went in, I made the sale very easy on them. I test drove, I was satisfied, I bought. Now I need something from them and they don't give a damn. Never again, Nissan, never again. I love how at the bottom of my Finance Contract it reads: Customer/Lending in Truth Contract. Except for when it's provided as proof and no one cares what it says.
I purchased a vehicle because I thought it was a sound economical choice and a practical car comparable in functionality to a Toyota or Honda. I was absolutely wrong. Not only do things begin to break and fall apart pre-maturely, but basic maintenance is almost impossible due to the poor construction and parts used on the vehicle. No one, including dealerships carry the parts for this 2012 Nissan Versa. There's no such thing as being able to buy a new battery from AAA because they won't have it, I can't get the transmission fluid changed because Jiffy Lube can't get to it, I can't get my brakes changed at Firestone because they don't have the random, cheap parts the Versa requires. I didn't buy a car in this price point to be forced to take it to a Nissan dealership for maintenance and have them take a full day or longer to fiddle around with no better information or resources than the next auto mechanics shop.
Of course Nissan Corporate heard from me and took no interest in my problems with their product. I just wished they cared more. I put my toddler in that car knowing it's not the safest but forced to continue using it until I'm presented with an opportunity to be rid of it. I feel like I got duped by Nissan's misleading marketing and branding campaign that they are reliable vehicles. It would be nice if Nissan had more integrity. Will never purchase another Nissan or refer them to someone shopping for a car.
Nissan of Duarte - I brought in my car to get my USB port checked and strange noises coming from under the car. When I went to pick up my car, I found a long crack in the windshield. I left the car for a week to get the windshield replaced. When I picked up my car the following week, I was really disappointed. There was a scratch on the windshield by the driver's side. The glass is not OEM glass, much cheaper glass. When I play the radio, the sounds don't resonate as well as before. The seals around the windshield don't look like as good as it should be.
The glass looked very dirty/dusty like it was an old windshield lying around. They did some things they believed would make the strange sounds go away, like tightened the emergency brakes and tightened the steering wheel. I absolutely don't like the changes and plus, the strange sound didn't go away. Worst yet, I found out that my seat is broken. It was not broken when I left my car for the windshield replacement. Overall, my experience has been horrible with Nissan and Nissan cars.
Nissan Rogue CVT transmission was diagnosed but not covered under warranty. Nissan knows there is an issue but refuses to resolve issues. Don't buy Nissan.
I am a very unhappy customer after purchasing a New 2016 Nissan Rogue. I have a claim into Nissan Consumer Affair. My brand new vehicle is sitting at the car dealer where I purchased my car, with a loud front end knocking noise. After being a Nissan consumer with a Nissan Altima never had a problem, always paid my car payment on time, and this is how I get treated as a customer. VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER.
