Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: I HAVE TAKEN MY 2003 NISSAN ALTIMA TO THE DEALER FOR THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION RECALL (NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER : 06V242000). NOW THE SES LIGHT IS ILLUMINATED INDICATING THAT THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. SEEMS TO ME THAT IF THIS defective engine, sludge, claim IS COMMON, AND IT OBVIOUSLY IS BASED ON MY RESEARCH, AND IF IT COULD CAUSE CRASHES AND, THEREFORE INJURY OR EVEN DEATH, THAT NISSAN WOULD BE OBLIGED TO RECTIFY THE PROBLEM--OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE NOT. WHAT IS BEING DONE TO RECTIFY THE SITUATION? WHY HASN'T SOMETHING BEEN DONE ALREADY (OBVIOUSLY THE REPROGRAMMING ASSOCIATED WITH THE RECALL HAS NOT RESOLVED THE PROBLEM). BY THE WAY, IF THERE WERE ALREADY INJURIES OR DEATHS THEN SOMEONE FAILED TO ACT IN A TIMELY MANNER. *TR

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: MY 2003 NISSAN ALTIMA 2.5 QUIT ON ME WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AND WOULD NOT CRANK. THE NEXT MORNING I TRIED TO CRANK THE CAR AND IT WOULD CRANK , I DID NOT WANT TO TAKE THE CHANCE OF BREAKING DOWN ON THE HIGHWAY SO I HAD THE VEHICLE TOWED TO SPARKS NISSAN IN MONROE, LA. THE TECHNICIAN DID THE RECALL ON THE VEHICLE AND THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT WAS ON AND THE MACHINE PUT OUT A CODE THAT THE CAR NEED A CRANK SENSOR , SO I HAD HIM TO PUT IT ON AND I GO TO THE GET CAR AND IT WOULD NOT CRANK AGAIN AND THE SENSOR HAD BEEN PUT ON . THE CAR IS DOING THE SAME THING IT DID WHEN IT CUT OFF ON ME. NOW THEY WANT ME TO PUT A COMPUTER IN THE CAR AFTER THEY DAMAGED MY COMPUTER. I AM VERY UPSET AND THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG AND ARE GIVING ME A HARD TIME. I AM SEEKING AN ATTORNEY , BECAUSE I SEE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM AND SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE ABOUT IT. *TR

Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Details: CRANK SHAFT SENSOR-2003 NISSAN ALTIMA 2.5 S. I BOUGHT MY CAR NEW FROM A DEARLERSHIP AND HAVE OWNED IT FOR 3.5 YEARS. IT CURRENTLY HAS 58,000 MILES ON IT. MY CAR STARTED STALLING OUT APPROXIMATELY 3 WEEKS AGO. IT CUTS OFF ON ME THE FIRST TIME AT A STOPLIGHT. ABOUT A WEEK LATER IT CUT OUT ON ME TWICE AFTER MAKING A RIGHT HAND TURN. IT THREATENED TO CUT OFF ON ME WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY AT 60 MPH. ON 8/18/07 IT CUT OFF ON ME IN A PARKING LOT AND THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT CAME ON. ON 8/20/07 WE DROVE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE THEY INFORMED US OF TWO PENDING RECALLS. THE HEADLAMP PIECE WAS ORDERED AND WILL BE INSTALLED LATER AND THE ECM WAS CORRECTED. THE DEALERSHIP WOULD NOT REPLACE THE ELECTRONIC CRANK SENSOR BECAUSE MY CAR'S VIN NUMBER WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. I REFUSE TO PAY FOR THIS BECAUSE THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN THAT SHOULD BE HANDLED BY THE DEALERSHIP. ALTHOUGH THE ECM RECALL WAS TAKEN CARE OF, I AM NOT CONFIDENT THAT THIS STALLING PROBLEM WILL NOT OCCUR AGAIN. THE DEALERSHIP DID NOT OFFER A RENTAL CAR OR SHUTTLE SERVICE. DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO BE KILLED BEFORE NISSAN WILL STEP UP TO THE PLATE, ANALYZE AND FIX THIS PROBLEM ONCE AND FOR ALL! FRUSTRATED. *TR
