 Description of the problemMy 2013 nissan altima is stalling when being shifted into reverse or drive. The first instance that this happened, i was driving and slowing down at an intersection. The rpm's dropped, the car shook a little and it died. I had to put it into park and restart. I was able to make it about 2 miles away when it did it again, this time on a residential street thankfully. I tried about 5 times and was not able to move the vehicle, every time i shifted it into drive, it stalled. I had it towed to a local shop and they were not able to reproduce the issue. They did however tell me that this is a very common issue and gave me a print out from a mechanics forum showing many other vehicles like mine experiencing the same issue. I tried to drive it from the original shop to the nissan dealer, it stalled in the middle of an intersection as i was trying to turn left. I had to restart, put it in neutral, give it gas and throw it into drive to make it through the intersection. Right after that, as i was driving through the neighborhood, i came to a stop and it stalled again, it continued to do this multiple times when putting it into drive. I had to have it towed again, this time to the dealer. The nissan dealer is now telling me that they are unable to reproduce the problem and want me to pay for a software update. They 'think' it's the transmission but it is not giving any error codes, so they don't know for sure.
