Nissan Versa Lemon Law

The Nissan Versa seemed like a great choice for many drivers because of it’s affordable price and the company’s claim of dependability. This has proven to not be the case, however, as issues with airbags, electrical system troubles, engine failures, and transmission problems have all arisen. With issues as significant as those, our team is ready and able to help you with the ins and outs of some much needed Nissan Versa Lemon Law. 

Nissan Versa Airbags Issues

Airbags in a car serve one primary purpose- to deploy during an accident in order to protect both the driver and the passengers. Unfortunately, it seems as though the Nissan Versa’s airbags can’t seem to perform their crucial and potentially life-saving job. There are many different recounts from Nissan Versa owners whose airbags did not deploy when they were in an accident. This is a lemon feature that will not be tolerated or accepted. 

Nissan Versa Electrical System Issues

Adding to the troubles of the Nissan Versa is a long list of possible electrical concerns that the cars have shown. Some are troublesome and annoying, and others are outright dangerous. There are numerous complaints and examples of problems with the electrical system for Nissan Versa owners. 

Nissan Versa Engine Problems

Engine problems are entirely unacceptable no matter the situation. The engine is the primary component of any car and many Nissan Versa’s have shown significant engine problems. 

“I was stopped at a stop sign (about to get on the highway) and my car just shut off. No signs that it was going to do this, no sputtering or acting like it was going to die. Just shut off. I have read on forums that other Nissan Versa owners have had the same issue. Some while driving down the road. I live 64 miles from my job. It’s a very dangerous situation for me if my car does that while I’m driving.”

Nissan Versa Transmission Problems

As if there weren’t already enough reasons why you may need assistance with Nissan Versa lemon law, these cars have also been found to have transmission problems. Transmission problems can cause major accidents and can be extremely dangerous if not properly addressed.

Nissan Sentra Lemon Law

Buying a new car is a big decision and oftentimes includes a list of pros and cons. No one expected, however, that the cons for the Nissan Sentra would include electrical system problems, service brake issues, AEB system failures, and engine troubles. If you are experiencing problems with your Nissan Sentra, then Nissan Sentra lemon law may be a solution for you. 

Nissan Sentra Service Break & AEB Issues

Good quality breaks are a must-have for any car, yet the Nissan Sentra service breaks and automatic emergency braking system (AEB) continue to have issues time and time again. Many of the automatic braking systems and sensors have been found to have serious issues, which could be extremely dangerous in many driving scenarios. This isn’t just a car annoyance, this is a significant issue that contributes to the need for Nissan Sentra lemon law. 

Nissan Sentra Service Engine Troubles

A working engine should pretty much be a given for any new car, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for the Nissan Sentra. There are numerous accounts of engine failures and random shutdowns that have caused serious problems and accidents on the road.

Nissan Altima Lemon Law

Nissan Altima lemon law seems to be more popular than the car itself. With a vast array of issues like defective brake systems, faulty forward collision avoidance systems, and steering issues, these cars seem to be creating a lot more problems than they are solutions.

Nissan Altima Brake Issues

Brake issues are essentially one of the worst car malfunctions that a driver can experience. Nissan Altima owners, unfortunately, know this fact all too well. 

“I drive a black 2018 Nissan Altima SR Special Edition…As I was driving down the street, my automatic braking system was activated and my car slowed down and tried to stop on its own…there was no car in front of me when this occurred. It is now happening consistently and I’m afraid to drive it, especially with my two-year-old son in the car. This could be very dangerous and potentially fatal if it happens at the wrong time.”

Nissan Altima Problems with the Forward Collision Avoidance System

What is the point of modern, advanced car technology if it doesn’t work. That seems to be the case time and time again with the Nissan Altima’s forward collision avoidance system. Many Nissan Altima drivers have claimed that “safety” features like this do not work for them, and haven’t worked for them since the day they purchased the car. 

Nissan Altima Steering Issues

Typically we view steering in a car as a given, but when a steering wheel all of a sudden has issues, it can be extremely frightening and dangerous for you, your passengers, and anyone on the road around you. If your Nissan Altima is experiencing anything similar to this, you may have a lemon and may be entitled to Nissan Altima lemon law retributions.

What does “Reasonable Attempts at Repair” mean for your Nissan?

In Nissan lemon law, the Nissan manufacturer has the opportunity to make a reasonable number of repairs before your Nissan is claimed a lemon. While lemon laws differ from state to state, in California a reasonable number of attempts have been made if:

  • You’ve tried to fix a warranty problem four or more times with no luck.
  • You’ve tried two or more times to fix a problem that could cause death or bodily harm.
  • The problem has put your car out of service for more than 30 days.

Nissan Recalls

Not every faulty car that’s driven off the dealer’s lot is a lemon. Sometimes, errors are made during a car’s manufacturing, and it affects tens, hundreds, or even thousands of those models — sometimes over several model years. When that happens, and a considerable number of cars don’t perform correctly under required safety standards, the Nissan manufacturer will often issue a recall.

When a recall is issued, the Nissan manufacturer will specify what the problem is, which cars were affected, and what action consumers need to take in order to get their cars repaired. Typically, recalls are issued by model and model year, usually by each car’s specific Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Sometimes, the defects won’t cause any serious issues and won’t be a cause for concern for consumers. But occasionally, defects could pose serious threats to driver and passenger safety. Manufacturers will let drivers know if they need to bring their cars in immediately, or if they can bring them in at their earliest convenience. The one positive about having your car included in a recall is that the manufacturer will fix any issues free of charge.

Even though Nissan is the sixth largest automaker in the world, even they aren’t immune to manufacturing defects that lead to recalls. Over the years, several Nissan cars, trucks and SUVs have been recalled for everything from brake issues to missing labels to being included in the Takata airbag issues that have affected multiple Nissan manufacturers.

We’re listing out five recent Nissan recalls from the past couple of years. Check below to see if your Nissan is included. Even if you don’t see your model, it’s a good idea to occasionally check the Nissan website, along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) website — sometimes, they’re the ones to issue recalls, rather than a manufacturer.

  1. Nissan recalled over 150,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because of an issue with the ignition switch that could cause the car to shut off while in motion.
  2. Over 215,000 Nissans, including the Murano, Maxima and Pathfinder from 2015 to 2018 were recalled due to possible leaks from the anti-lock brake pump that could result in a fire.
  3. Around 105,000 Nissans were recalled as part of the Takata airbag debacle.
  4. The automaker recalled 483 Titans and Titan XDs from 2016 to 2018 for missing an important about the truck’s load carrying capacity.
  5. The 2017 Juke was recalled for an issue with the brake master cylinder that could leak fluid into the brake booster.
