My mother had an accident that totaled the automobile. The vehicle was only a few months old with less than 2500 miles on the odometer. The accident was a front end collision and the driver's air bag did not deploy. The passenger's side did deploy. Nissan usa is not responding. A report has been filed. The front driver's air bag should have deployed. I am been designated by my mother to address this as she suffered sever injuries due to the faulty ai bag and my farther has dementia and cannot properly replay the circumstances. This was a single car accident resulting in loss of control which resulted in striking a telephone pole rh front just off center. *dt*dt*jb*jb

THERE IS A GRINDING SOUND THAT SEEMS TO COME FROM THE PASSENGER'S FRONT QUARTER OF MY Kicks. I CANNOT REPLICATE IT. I HAS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES AND SEEMS TO DECELERATE THE CAR. IT NORMALLY HAPPENS WHEN I AM PULLING OUT OF MY APARTMENT COMPLEX. I CANNOT RECREATE THE ISSUE. I TOOK THE VEHICLE INTO A DEALER A FEW WEEKS AGO FOR AN OIL CHANGE AND ASKED THEM TO CHECK IT OUT. THEY SAID NOTHING SEEMED WRONG AND OF COURSE THEY COULD NOT RECREATE THE SOUND EITHER. I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS COINCIDENCE OR NOT, BUT MY FUEL EFFICIENCY HAS SEEMED TO DECREASE AS WELL. IT USE TO BE AROUND THE 27.7 AREA AND NOW IT HOVERS IN THE 25.7 RANGE. BOTH OF WHICH ARE BELOW THE ESTIMATES WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR.

Owner purchased the vehicle new. At approximately 100 miles, the vehicle made a gear grinding noise from the front of the vehicle. Vehicle was taken to larry h miller nissan in mesa az, dealership claimed they could not duplicate the problem. Vehicle continued to make grinding noises from what appears to be the transmission. Although the owner of the vehicle and passengers hear the grinding noise almost on a ever-other day basis, same dealership claims they cannot replicate the problem. Owner will not drive the vehicle, which now has only 2,100 miles on it.

Front sensor for the vehical keeps stating that the sensor is obstructed. The exterior of the car has been cleaned and looked at by the dealership. However, they have not fixed the problem and refuse to do so, due to the claim that rain and bugs are the cause of setting off the sensor. The sensor has been going off since i purchased the car in august of 2018.

Fuel: i filled the tank and the reading was much lower, as if i had less gas in the tank. I filled the tank, and driving 1 mile, the reading said i drove 3 miles, so i was losing 3 miles of gas per 1 mile drive. I took it into nissan and they said the tank was reading accurately. After they took a look, i notice i wasn't losing gas as before, i think they did a reset and now looks to be working. This took place on 01/20-23/2020 other: i bought the car in for a grinding noise, came out to be wheel bearing replacement on my brand new car. Very disappointing. Replacement on 01/09/2020

Transmission has been iffy. Randomly slipping rpms. Driving down the highway everything shut off and it stopped in the middle of the road multiple cars narrowly missing me. I could have died because of a broken transmission! Only four months old bought it brand new only 5k miles on it. This is not okay! This could have killed me and people around me! Unacceptable!

Front radar unavailable due to obstruction. The sensor malfunctions (shows on dash) while driving on the freeway in rush hour slow traffic or normal traffic, rain or shine. It may come on while braking or driving over a manhole or pothole in the road. It has come on while slowing down or stationary. Bought my car in june 2019. It started coming on 3 days after purchase and several times since with the last time on november 22nd. Key. Car would not start even when the key was placed near the starter. Brake could not be pressed in order to start ignition. Key not detected sensor would come on. This happened on a few occasions days after purchase. Called dealer and informed them of the problem. I missed work due to car not starting. Issue resolves itself after several hours. Never was fixed at the dealer so it does happen again on any given day or time.

PURCHASED MY 2018 Nissan Kicks NEW IN FEBRUARY OF 2019. HAVE HAD MANY ISSUES STARTING WITHIN 3 MONTHS OF PURCHASE. MY FIRST ISSUE WAS WHILE WAITING AT A LIGHT THE VEHICLE CUT OFF AND TOOK 3 ATTEMPTS TO RESTART. NEXT ISSUE WAS WHILE DRIVING THE KEY LIGHT GLOWED AS IF THE KEY WAS NOT IN THE VEHICLE. THE CAR STUTTERS AND DON'T PICK UP SPEED. CRASH LIGHT AND OTHER LIGHTS COMING ON WITHOUT WARNING OR REASON. HAVE TAKEN VEHICLE IN AFTER EVERY ISSUE AND HAVE LEFT VEHICLE WITH NISSAN ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS AND ISSUES ARE STILL NOT RESOLVED. THIS IS A VEHICLE THAT THEY JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S GOING ON WITH IT. TODAY 11/14/19 IS MY LATEST VISIT FOR THE VEHICLE CUTTING OFF AND NOT STARTING IMMEDIATELY AFTER CUTTING OFF. THE SIDE DOOR BUTTONS HAVE FALLEN INTO THE DOOR PANEL AND STILL NO RESOLUTION. I LEFT THE VEHICLE AND I JUST HOPE THAT THIS TIME ALL MY ISSUES WITH THIS VEHICLE WIL BE RESOLVED. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH NISSAN. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER VEHICLE FROM NISSAN AGAIN.
