 Description of the problemI purchased a used 2013 nissan altima s 2. 5l in may 2016 and in jan 2017 the transmission died. I contacted nissan and my dealership for assistance, and no one could assist me with anything (paying for repairs, a different car, etc). My car barely accelerated across a busy intersection and i could have gotten killed. I had to continue paying my car note while getting rental cars/riding uber and lyft/ getting rides, calling out from work some days, while i waited for any response from nissan, only to finally receive a non-chalant, "nissan cannot offer you any assistance at this time". I contacted numerous mechanics for transmission prices and all of them told me that other people with the same car/year had called with transmission issues as well. I can see online that many people have the same issue with this specific year of altima and nissan is doing nothing about it and not being held accountable. Now, almost a year later after i got the transmission replaced, my engine is stalling, i am having the intermittent acceleration issue once again, and i would hate to fork out $4000 on yet another transmission -or be without a car- or have to get a different car (with a compounded loan or a lower value car). I am extremely frustrated by the situation and lucky to be alive after having this car. I should not have to suffer this with a car that is not even 3 years old. It is unsafe for these vehicles to be on the road if they can stop working at any time while driving during a commute and nissan won't address the issue or acknowledge that they have designed a faulty transmission in their 2013 altimas.
