Engine hesitates or stalls on acceleration. When pulling out from a stop engine hesitates to near stall no matter how hard or far you press gas pedal. Extremely dangerous. Intermittent issue, no failure codes when tested. If engine doesn't stall, vehicle is at a stand still even with gas pedal to floor or pumping gas pedal. Is happening all the time, extremely dangerous. Nearly hit by oncoming traffic several times. Dealership has had many reports of same issue, but no solution. I am afraid to drive vehicle.

The airbag light stays flashing and does not turn off on the truck. I drove the truck with my friend and we were both in our seat belts, for an entire 1 hour ride the light kept flashing. The airbag light starts flashing as soon as i start the truck now and does not shut off unless i park the car and turn the car off. This is a serious safety issue, if the airbag does not deploy due to the faulty sensor even when seat belts are worn i am sure that is a hospital case and a lawsuit waiting to happen. Please make nissan rectify this problem.

The air bag warning light has been flashing on my instrument panel since spring of 2019. Brought to a couple different places and they can't clear the code. Says no air bag detected. I haven't fixed it yet... Cuz i ain't got the money. The vehicle was in motion on highway when light came on. There is no varying of light... Stays on continually.

I try and fill up fuel and the pump constantly shuts off. I have to pump the fuel super slow in order for it to fill up. I have tried different gas stations, same issue. I took it into the dealer and they did some repairs under the enhancement warranty they implemented, but the issue still exists. They want to charge me $1900 to replace the fuel tank and other fuel components even though the exact same issue is happening as described in the warranty enhancement for the issue. Code p0448. The issue is beyond just the evap canister if the issue still exists after they replaced it, so it seems as though they are only trying to repair part of the issues even though it is beyond the basic fix, if it is still occurring. If you try and fill up normally, the nozzle shuts off or the fuel spills out because it is detecting it is full even though it's not.

I'VE NEVER FEARED FOR MY OWN LIFE AND THE OTHERS I HAVE TO ROAD SHARE WITH UNTIL OWNING THIS 2017 Nissan Frontier. I'VE HAD IT INTO THE DEALERSHIP A TOTAL OF 7 TIMES BECAUSE THE DRIVERS SEAT SLIDES BACK AND FORTH WHILE GOING DOWN THE ROAD. THE NISSAN DEALERSHIP HAS REPLACED AND TIGHTENED UP THE TRACK THE SEAT SITS ON AND WITHIN A FEW HUNDRED MILES IT BECOMES LOOSE. I'VE CONTACTED NISSAN AND THEY REFUSE TO TALK TO ME. NOT ONLY DOES THE DRIVERS SEAT SLIDE BACK AND FORTH WHILE GOING DOWN THE ROAD BUT SO HAS THE PASSENGER SIDE. I TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP I BOUGHT IT FROM 2YEARS AGO AND THEY REFUSED TO HELP ME OTHER THAN OFFERING ME TO TRADE IT IN AND PUT SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE IN JEOPARDY.

THIS TRUCK IS A 2018 Nissan Frontier THAT HAS ~10K MILES AND IS DRIVEN DAILY. IN THE EVENINGS IT IS KEPT OUTSIDE. RECENTLY, A HORRIBLE ODOR BEGAN COMING FROM THE VENTILATION SYSTEM. I IMMEDIATELY STARTED DISMANTLING THE PASSENGER DASH, REMOVED THE CABIN AIR FILTERS, AND DISCOVERED A DEAD MOTHER RAT AND 4 OFFSPRING IN THE COMPARTMENT ABOVE THE FILTERS. IF I HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND THE PROBLEM, THE TRUCK WOULD HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY UNUSABLE. HOW WERE THEY ABLE TO GAIN ENTRY? I AM GUESSING THROUGH SOME FRESH AIR INTAKE THAT IS OBVIOUSLY OPEN TO THE EXTERIOR. NISSAN NEEDS TO ADD A VERY SIMPLE WIRE MESH COVER TO THE OFFENDING ENTRANCE. TO ALLOW ACCESS TO A FULLY GROWN RAT, IT IS ASSUREDLY 2-3" IN DIAMETER! THANKFULLY, I WAS ABLE TO CATCH THE PROBLEM. HOWEVER, IT IS SUMMER, HIGH TEMPERATURES, AND HAD THE TRUCK BEEN LEFT UNATTENDED FOR SEVERAL DAYS, THE RESULTING ODOR MAY HAVE NEVER BEEN REMEDIATED. MY CONCERN IS, IF I CAN'T FIND AND COVER THE OPENING, THIS COULD HAPPEN AGAIN.

My vehicle was burglarized. The thieves got in through the rear sliding glass. The latch does not lock and is faulty. If the latch was fully functional, nobody would have gone in and stolen everything i owned.
