 Description of the problemI purchased a brand new 2014 nissan altima s on 7/20/14. On 9/17/14 my cel began flashing, car shaking & losing power as i was driving on the freeway (which is under construction with no shoulders to pull over on). Brought car to service department and they tried to first tell me they couldn't find any issue. I forced them to continue testing & it happened again & they were able to pull 2 error codes (misfire & multiple misfire). After a week of driving my car and testing, they could not figure out how to fix it. I opened a case at that time to request a buy back or replacement of this vehicle as it is clear that something was done wrong on the assembly line & safety of vehicle has been compromised. On 9/26/14, the dealership called and told me to pick up my car as they "think they fixed the problem." i picked up the car, drove 5 miles & issues happened again & i noticed it was consuming large amounts of gasoline. Brought it back to dealership & told them that it was not fixed & it is not safe to drive this vehicle. On 9/29/14, nissan corporate sent an engineer to pick up my car to test the issues & after driving it, the engineer said that all 4 coils needed to be changed. Coils were swapped out & i picked up the car 10/2/14 against my will. Full tank when i picked up the car stating i'd receive 540 miles (normal for an altima) & 2 days later, it dropped all of a sudden by 100 miles for no reason. I only received 400 miles to full tank & the majority of my driving is highway miles. It is still consuming gasoline & is idling rougher. I am now 3 weeks in, 2 separate issues & my car still is not working. If my car has issues 52 days in and only 3k miles, i can only imagine what else is going to happen. I commute and drive with small children & it is not safe. It is clear that there is something wrong with my car.
