That is ridiculous for a manufacturer defect in design that they have acknowledged that causes the failure. I've owned this car for 11 hours so a performance review is premature but I don't think I'll be disappointed. We have a huge selection of used engines and used transmission for sale, all makes and models. Dealer tells us there is no problem, as it cannot be replicated. The car only has one previous owner.
It is a very comfortable care! I believe this is a design problem that presents a safety issue of leaving a car unable to move for a short period of time. Took 2 weeks to get the new transmission in which if we hadnt fought with them they werent planning on giving us a rental. But the manual doesn't say like that. Without discussing it with me and 2. So apparently Nissan is aware of the defect.
I shifted between drive and reverse multiple times in an attempt to free up the brakes. That's why they changed it for 2004. Buy your used Nissan Sentra transmissions from us and save time and money. By now I started thinking maybe this is more than a coincidence and actually saw a recall online for the same problem. At times, after vechicle is moving the gear selector can not be placed in next gear, causing vechicle to roll down street under no power until the gear lever will engage. So I thought maybe something strange happened and I went on with my life.
Mechanic removed intake manifold and found two power valves and their screws obliterated and scattered throughout the compartment in dozens of loose pieces. The service engine soon light comes on, the vdc control light comes on, and another light that is above the vdc light comes on. He also told me that there are many coming thru that are under the replacement program due to a defect that causes engine coolant into the transmission. For example the most recent time it happened I had stopped at a stop sign and when starting to accelerate the car just shut off like it has so many times. . That's what I based my decision on. There are no recalls for this make and model.
We are back in the Nissan dealership and the same representative advised me that they would have to replace the transmission. After getting a tow to the nearest shop, they determined the transmission was bad. Don't waste your time wasting ours! I was truly interested on the vehicle, but sold it to someone else. Great Dealership I've purchased Nissans in the past and I have no complaints. I went ahead and spent hours getting a loan approved with my credit union and my insurance company.
The second transmission replacement was with a 2003 transmission. I have had major engine and transmission problems, before the car was even a year old I had to take it in for transmission problems 3 times. Immediately after stopping I took my foot off the brake and stepped on the gas. Which they agreed to send. My engine had to be replaced 2 times.
Sometimes the engine rumbles a bit. When I am driving my car on local road, there is noise from gear-knob button shift-knob button. We carry a wide-ranging catalog of used Nissan transmissions for all applications including gas and diesel engines. What do I do now!? Car ran okay for a few weeks, the same symptoms occurred. Have discovered that Nissan has extended the cvt transmission warranty on certain Nissan up to 10 yrs or 120,000 miles, my Sentra is included among others. The 32 mm spindle nut was loose enough to turn by hand, the original cotter-pin painted black while the car was built was original-properly intact.
This Nissan Sentra 2010 Repair Manual — Service Manuals is completely descriptive and graphical detail from the smallest screw to the parties but all components of the system. They replaced my transmission 2 times. Comfortable and roomy and gets great gas mileage! Both times my engine was found with no oil in it even thought it was far from being do for an oil change. The Nissan dealer has reproduced this problem on multiple different Sentra of different model years but of the same basic generation. On August 10,2012 we went back to Oklahoma and the same problem occurred. I put car in park, turned ignition off and tried to start up car with success. Nissan has told me that the car is working as designed and will not fix it.
