2016 Rogue AC seems to work when it wants to. I took it in and 2.5 hours waiting in the service department they said they replaced a switch. A week later it again stopped work. The air just is not very cold and 81 degrees outside we ended up just rolling the windows down. To the repair shop again on Monday (but of course it’s working now). The air conditioning in my 2016 Nissan Rogue wasn’t working and then began working.

I have the same problem. The dealership can’t duplicate the problem while it is at the shop. I’m under warranty but they won’t replace anything unless they see the blowers not working. I can’t take the car on long trips or drive it in conditions when the windows might fog up because it is dangerous when it stops working! Are there any technical bulletins out on this?

Mazda Subframe Corrosion

Mazda6 subframe failures will be investigated by the government after 2009-2010 Mazda owners continue to complain about corrosion problems that affect the subframes.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has received 20 complaints about subframe failures that caused drivers trouble when trying to keep the cars under control.Two of those corroded subframe complaints came from 2009 Mazda6 drivers.

“Purchased this car in 2014 used. I didn’t notice it until I drove it off the lot. Well used vehicles come with no warranty as is. Yay me.”  “This is of great concern and could be very expensive to repair. May have to sell the car which, otherwise, is in very good condition.” The owner of a 2010 Mazda6 said they finally figured out why they couldn’t control the car. “On Wednesday, May 24th the sub-frame of this car broke while my daughter was driving it. We did not know at the time that it was the subframe. All we knew was that there was no control of the car as it was being driven. The owner went on to say the repair facility was surprised the subframe broke on an 8-year-old car that had been well maintained.  excerpted from www.carcomplaints.com

Nissan CVT Class Action Lawsuits

Owners of various makes and models of Nissan, including Versa, Sentra, Altima, Pathfinder, and others, have experienced multiple transmission problems.  Problems with the CVT transmission have been reported by many drivers, and several Nissan CVT class action lawsuits has been filed.  Owners may be entitled to compensation or new vehicles because of the CVT transmission problems.  Here is one report:

“A Nissan Versa CVT (continuously variable transmission) lawsuit alleges the cars fail to accelerate and finally experience complete transmission failure that causes owners and lessees to pay thousands of dollars for CVT replacements and repairs.

The proposed class-action lawsuit includes all current and former owners and lessees of 2012 and 2013 Nissan Versas that are equipped with CVTs that allegedly fail within and shortly after the warranties expire.”

In another class action originating in Alabama, the complaint describes one of the Plaintiff’s experiences with the CVT in her vehicle:

“12. Pritchett purchased a 2013 Sentra in Montgomery, Alabama. Her car is equipped with Defendant’s CVT. She experienced issues with her CVT that are substantially the same as those experienced by U Can Rent: it would jump, start, stop, bind, and lag unexpectedly, dangerously, and inappropriately. It became so bad that it was dangerous to drive. Her CVT ultimately failed, causing her car to be inoperable. As her vehicle is no longer under the manufacturer’s warranty, she would have had to pay approximately $4,500 in repair bills to replace the defective CVT with another CVT. The replacement CVT is no better than the original failed CVT.”

Problems with the CVT transmission have plagued Nissan for years.  The idea behind the transmission is that a CVT uses a steel belt or pulley system to move gears in a continuous, smooth motion, instead of in steps.  However, the reality of the driver experience is far from smooth.

  • Shuddering and shaking, especially at low-speed acceleration
  • Stalling
  • Overheating
  • Slow response time from accelerator
  • Loud whining and rattling

Nissan has responded by saying there is no problem, extending warranties in some cases, offering software updates, and owners continue to experience problems with their CVT transmissions.  Call the Law Office of Howard Gutman at (973) 598-1980 for a free consultation about compensation and your rights.
