TL THE CONTACT OWNS A 2015 Infiniti QX80. THE CONTACT STATED THAT WHILE ACCELERATING FROM A STOP SIGN, THERE WAS AN ABNORMAL SOUND COMING FROM THE VEHICLE. THE CONTACT VEERED TO THE SHOULDER OF THE ROADWAY TO INSPECT THE VEHICLE BUT FOUND NO ISSUES. THE CONTACT DROVE THE VEHICLE TO AN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC TO BE DIAGNOSED.

Vehicle has 73,000 miles. When driving and accelerating, the vehicle begins to shake, jerk and vibrate violently. This happens at both local and highway speeds. The frequency in which this occurs has increased significantly over the past week. The vehicle was taken to the nissan dealership. The dealership states that this is a "premature transmission failure" and is recommending a full replacement of the transmission at the customers expense. Nissan/infiniti is well aware of this issue, but is apparently taking no ownership in helping customers with resolving this premature transmission failure. The bulletin that the manufacture has issued needs to be escalated to a recall. An investigation into this matter is overdue as numerous customers have experienced this transmission failure.
ON MAY 4, 2019, I TOOL DELIVERY OF A NEW INFINITY, QX50 AND AFTER 2.5 MONTHS OF OWNERSHIP (JULY 26, 2019 TO PRESENT), I'M HAVING ONGOING / UNRESOLVED PROBLEMS / FAILURES WITH; AUDIO, LANE DEPARTURE, COLLISION WARNING W/ SUDDEN STOPPING, HEATED / COOL SEATS, INFOTAINMENT, AUDIO, TAILGATE, REMOTE DOOR LOCKS, BOTH SCREENS GOING BLANK, PHONE / BLUETOOTH CONNECTION, AWD, AUTOMATIC SHIFTING PROBLEMS AND EXTREMELY SOFT BRAKES THAT PUT ME THRU 2 CONTROLLED INTERSECTIONS. THE DCU HAS BEEN REPLACED 4 TIMES AND I STILL HAVE THE SAME ONGOING / UNRESOLVED PROBLEMS. I TOLD THE SERVICE MANAGER (RUDY), TO START REPLACING ALL THE SENSORS, CMS AND CAMERA AND HE REFUSED TO DO THAT. MY QX50 HAS BEEN IN FOR SERVICE FIVE TIMES (INCLUDING TODAY, 04-21-2021), FOR A TOTAL OF 6+ WEEKS. THE MECHANIC AT INFINITY, CAN'T REPLICATE ANY OF MY ONGOING PROBLEMS / UNRESOLVED PROBLEMS AND I HAVE 25 VIDEOS, SHOWING WHAT THE QX50 IS DONG AND INFINITY CAN'T FIX IT. I PAY A LOT OF MONEY FOR THE QX50 AND FOR ALL THE DRIVER SAFETY FEATURES, OTHER AMENITIES AND IT STILL CONTINUES TO FAIL MISERABLY AND DOES NOT PERFORM AS INTENDED. BECAUSE OF THESE UNRESOLVED PROBLEMS AND ONGOING ISSUES, MY WIFE REFUSES TO DRIVE IN THE QX50 WITH ME. I HAVE ASKED INFINITY TO BUY BACK THE QX50 AND THEY FLAT OUT REFUSED. I HAD TO OBTAIN A LAWYER.
