Nissan Lemon Law Litigation
Common Nissan lemon symptoms such as jerking, shuddering and transmission failure have appeared in various class action lawsuits. For example, Nissan has faced a number of class action lawsuits that allege its continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) to be defective. In the past few decades, Nissan faced CVT-related class action suits for 2013–2016 Altima, 2013–2014 Juke and 2013–2017 Sentra vehicles.
Though many of these have reached settlement, we have found that defects such severe juddering, stalling, vibrating, slipping failure to accelerate, sudden stops and transmission failure have appeared in the following vehicles: 2018–2019 Sentra, 2017–2021 Altima, 2016–2021 Maxima, 2015–2021 Murano, 2019–2021 Pathfinder, 2015–2017 Quest, 2019–2021 Rogue, 2018–2019 Versa
More recently, Nissan came under legal fire because its automatic emergency braking (AEB) systems are defective and make vehicles unsafe to drive. These AEB systems use radars and sensors to detect objects, and if a crash seems imminent, the AEB systems automatically trigger the brakes.
According to a class action lawsuit filed in 2019, the AEB systems installed in 2017–2019 Nissan vehicles detected nonexistent objects and triggered the brakes. Recurring problems with the AEB systems have been found in the following Nissan vehicles: 2017–Present Rogue, Pathfinder, Murano, Altima, Maxima, Armada, Leaf, Sentra, 2018–Present Kicks and Versa
A class action Nissan lawsuit alleges that 9-speed automatic transmissions installed in 2020–2021 Nissan Titan and Nissan Frontier trucks experience recurring problems such as hesitation, vehicle jerking, lurching and shifting problems. As a result, these truck drivers are at an increased risk of getting rear ended.
The following vehicles have reported experiencing recurring problems with their 9-speed transmissions: 2020–Present Nissan Titan and Frontier
