 Description of the problemWe first began noticing what felt like a hard downshift when coasting at speeds under 50 mph. The problem was first diagnosed as a antilock brake programming error, but repairs did not solve the problem and the severity increased. When traveling at a speed of 30 - 45 mph and we'd take our foot off the accelerator, it almost felt like we were being rear-ended. It became clear that this was a problem with the new continuous acceleration transmission (i. E., no shift). Once the maintenance technician felt the problem when it happened, a new transmission was ordered and installed (approx. At 10,000 miles). After the new transmission was installed, we had no problems until around 15,000 miles, when the problem resurfaced. We took it back in for repairs, as the vehicle is not safe to drive with such a hard jerking problem. They tried replacing the transmission controller, but that also did not work. When they told us that they were going to need to install another new transmission we told them we didn't want the car any longer. The dealership worked on our behalf to try to get help from nissan for a new vehicle, but with very little success. Fortunately, our dealership still did the right thing and we have a new vehicle.
