2013 Nissan Sentra S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased a 2013 Nissan Sentra from Lewis Nissan. It currently has 127,532 miles on it and this is the 3rd transmission so far. She paid for the last 2. The transmission is going out again.....the dealership and Nissan has told her there is nothing wrong with it because it is not giving them a code. PLEASE DO NO BUY ANYTHING WITH THEIR CVT TRASNMISSION IT IT!!! It is a death trap we can not trade off or sell. You will be driving it down the interstate at 70 MPH and it just stops pulling, luckily she has not caused an accident yet or worse. Our only option is to keep handing the dealership $4000 each time they replace the transmission. The dealership is not the least bit helpful, not even a loaner car. Dangerous products, tons of complaints on the CVT, contacted Nissan got told their is nothing they can do to fix their faulty product.

Review

CVT is crap, 5yrs and 80k miles Nissan reason for not helping on transmission repair is “due to age of vehicle” can’t help. Hey Nissan it’s 5yrs 60k mil warranty how is that due to age. But offered B plan from dealer, buy new Sentra. Hell NO to Nissan, not in my driveway. I’ll rather buy more reliable Honda or Toyota. Screw me once and we are done. That’s customer appreciation, bought two brand new Nissan. On my way to HONDA dealership

I owned the car almost 4 years and this is my 2nd time changing the transmission, the dealer's help was 0 because it was exactly the 3 years warranty. I would never buy a nissan sentra anymore

Review

Transmission got broken when my wife traveling to CA, the dealer on Tracy CA, and only one on the area spend weeks to get it fix. After several months we sent the car tot Tulsa OK to be used by my son at college; the car presented some noise getting worse with time. When taking the car to the leader it was determine by the dealer that it was a result of an error performed during the transmission replacement. The technician left a bolt loose or too tight stripping the bolt and causing a possible safety issue. The dealer kept the car for 10 days on a "waiting for parts status" after these ten days and calling and pushing the dealer for the repair od the vehicle. We were notified that the dealer at CA denied our claim and there is nothing they can do. I contacted Nissan directly and tried to get them to honor the extended warranty and their response was. Nothing that they can do, that the dealers are "independent" of Nissan and I should deal directly with the dealer at Tracy CA. Nissan is not being accountable for the bad performance or training of their technician or services provided by their dealers. Sure they will push you to utilize their services as for warranty requirements, but they are not willing to cover for their mistakes. Now I was required to sign to take my vehicle back and release them for any responsibility because now it is a safety issue. If you are expecting that you will have a NATIONAL service form Nissan you are wrong and you are left alone to be the victim of a poor service and quality of their products. Save the time and lets switch TOYOTA, at least they are honoring every service and job performed on my Toyota Tundra; what a difference on service and quality ! Never NISSAN !
