Vehicle keeps shutting off while driving, even on major highway. Vent control valve was stuck open had to be replaced; corrosion on a connector to the wiring harness had to be replaced. Alot of similar complaints and there needs to be a recall on this vehicle. My daughter could have been killed on the highway when we left dealership for engine shutting down, it shut down again after driving 10 miles from being serviced for same reason.

I was driving on highway and the front collision sensor kept going off. We pulled the vehicle over at our destination and parked. Cleared front cameras shut engine off, and all warning malfunction indicators kept lighting up. 1st no key detected, then brake warning, then head light malfunction, then brake, seat belt, and check engine warnings all flashed at same time. Then after sometime passed brakes locked up, and power to entire car was gone. No lights no nothing. Towed car to dealership where i purchased it, they had it for 2 days and could not find the problem. They had to jump the battery to get it started, then head light malfunction was seen on screen again. Mechanic kept trying to find other issues, but was unsuccessful and the battery was not failing. When i received the car back and tried to start it no key indicator light came on. Then placed key on start button to get it started. They still have no clue what this was. Said it was a fluke. I believe this could be a major problem due to sensors, malfunctioning, since they had been replaced once already, due to malfunctions. Not safe if this happens while driving down the highway, thankfully the car was parked when it occurred. I have included 2 photos shown to ed martin nissan dealership service department, where i towed the car to for diagnostic. They told me they could not find the issue to repair. *dt consumer stated engine was parked at my destination. When she tried to start the car as usual, pushing both the start button and pressing the brake. Brakes would not compress. Then the warning light started flashing. *jb

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING (AEB) SYSTEM WARNING LIGHT (IF SO EQUIPPED) I PURCHASED MY 2018 Nissan Kicks IN FEB OF 2019, AND HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING ISSUES WITH THE WARNING LIGHT THAT LOOKS LIKE TWO CARS COLLIDING RANDOMLY APPEARING ALONG WITH A MESSAGE "UNAVAILABLE FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION." THESE WARNING LIGHTS CAN COME ON AT ANY GIVEN TIME DURING THE TIME IN WHICH THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN, AND BEGAN SHORTLY AFTER PURCHASE OF THE VEHICLE. WEATHER CONDITIONS, ETC HAVE NO EFFECT ON THIS ISSUE. THE WARNING LIGHT/MESSAGE HAS COME ON WHEN IT'S SUNNY. IT CAN COME ON WHEN CHANGING LANES, AND NOT EVEN HAVING A VEHICLE DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF YOU. I MONITORED THE BEHAVIOR FOR QUITE AWHILE IN ORDER TO CONFIRM THIS WAS AN ACTUAL DEFECT. MY VEHICLE IS GARAGED MOST OF THE TIME, AND THERE HAS BEEN NO DAMAGE TO IT WHATSOEVER. AFTER FURTHER RESEARCH, I CHECKED THE OWNERS MANUAL THEN REALIZED THE WARNING LIGHT THAT I HAVE BEEN SEEING IS ACTUALLY THE AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING (AEB) SYSTEM WARNING LIGHT. THE MESSAGE THAT APPEARS ON THE DASH INDICATES A FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION, OR IMPACT NEAR THE FRONT OF THE CAR AS WELL. THESE MAY BE TWO SEPARATE ISSUES, BUT THEY OCCUR AT THE SAME TIME EVERYTIME. I ALWAYS SEE THE AEB LIGHT, AND THE FRONT RADAR OBSTRUCTION WARNING SIMULTANEOUSLY. I HAVE ALSO HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE BLIND SPOT WARNING LIGHTS RANDOMLY APPEARING, AND MY BACK UP CAM GLITCHING OUT/FREEZING IN THE PROCESS OF BACKING UP.

Front impact warning light comes on and affects the cruise control and tries to stop without anything in front of car. This car only has 4200 miles and has been in shop 5 fives for the same thing and all nissan dealership does is clear code, adjust sensors and/or calibrate sensors but never changes out sensors. There is already several class action lawsuits with nissan on front sensor and this malfunction. This is clearly a hazard driving the car and is a safety issue to drive since this car can try to stop when nothing is in front of car.

BOUGHT 2020 Kicks. IT HAS AN SERIOUS ISSUE REGULATING TEMPERATURE. IT SEEMS THIS CAR HAS A BLEND DOOR ISSUE THAT DOES NOT ALLOW THE CAR TO HAVE THE TEMP SET AT AN ACCEPTABLE LEVEL FOR COMFORT. ITS EITHER TOO COLD OR TOO HOT. 60-62 DEGREES ITS COLD, MOVE TO 63 AND UP AND ITS HOT?? IN ANY OF Y OTHER CARS ANYTHING AT 68 AND BELOW IS COOL TO COLD. THIS IS BORDERING ON HAVING DRIVERS BEING CONSTANTLY DISTRACTED BY HAVING TO MANUALLY ADJUST THE TEMP REPEATEDLY TO MAINTAIN COMFORTABLE LEVELS. THIS CAR IS MARKETED FOR YOUNG ADULTS AS AN ECONOMICAL/SAFE APPROACH TO A NEW VEHICLE . NISSAN SHOULD FIX THIS BEFORE SOMEONE GET INJURED BEING DISTRACTED

Entering highway or traffic car hesitates no power. Seems like the engine isnt providing enough gas for take off, this is with the pedal accelerator completely pressed down. This has happened several times. Scary when your entereing traffic. Had back to dealer once and said all was fine. It happens almost every time i drive it but not all the time mainly when you come to an almost stop and try to go. I looked on line for bullitins and came across classification at19-002d reference ntb19-040d.

The car currently has 5700 miles on the odometer. Ever since i bought it in june of 2020, intermittently the car will idle rough at stop lights. When it happens it is usually after driving on the highway for 20 or 30 minutes. On october 17, 2020 after about an hour on the highway the car idled rough at the first stop light i encountered then died. I restarted it then it promptly died again. After the second restart there were no other problems. Took the car into the dealer on monday 10/19/20. They kept it for 3 days and never could duplicate the problem. They did reprogram the engine control module that was under recall. Hoping maybe this resolves the problem.

While exiting the freeway/slowing to stop at a light, my front collision light came on and no one was ahead of me. While still in motion my vehicles engine shut off and i had to pull the emergency brake to regain control of the vehicle. I put my foot on the break at the light and shifted the car from drive to park. Keeping my foot on the break started the engine with the push button which had trouble turning over and the dash lit up the following lights: master indicator, slip warning and automatic emergency breaking system warning. On the digital display it read something to do with emissions but went away before i could take the photo. When the light turned green i gave gas to the vehicle and it struggled to gain speed over 5 mph for over 1000 feet then went back to normal speeds and the other lights went off and only the check engine light came on and stayed on. The next day as i was pulling out of my driveway to take my vehicle to the dealer, my vehicle shut off again but no display this time, just completely shut off. I? Ve also had issues with the center display and controls since i purchased a vehicle just over a year ago. The radio turns on and off on its own turn the volume up and down on its own which i can sometimes control from the steering wheel but never from the center. Even when using steering wheel controls the radio will do its own thing. So i could be driving with the radio off and it will be on full blast i turn it down with the steering wheel and it will go back to full blast. The very next day after the first incident listed i took my car to the dealership. As i left the radio proved to be not fixed. I immediately went to to fix it & was told a week for the part to come. I contacted corporate after investigation, they would not buy back my car which is just over a year old with 15,500 miles. No receipt given after replacing center consol.

I was driving on the road, and my car was sitting at a red light, the car just stops and will not move. I almost caused a very bad accident as there was cars behind me. I turned it off and turned it back on and then it all of sudden worked again. This is a dangerous situation and i thought i was gonna be in a accident.

MY Nissan Kicks 2019 HAVE A FEW PROBLEMS. FIRST IT TURN ON THE SENSOR OF CHECK ENGINE. ALSO THE TRACTION CONTROL SENSOR IS ON. BUT THE WORST OF ALL IS THAT THE THE FRONT PROXIMITY SENSOR IS GIVING UP FALSE ALARMS AND IS STOPPING THE CAR WHILE DRIVING. THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY BECAUSE THE CAR DOES IT ON UNEXPECTED PLACES. IS THIS HAPPENING ONLY TO MY CAR? I AM GOING TO TAKE MY CAR FOR SERVICE BUT IT MAKE ME FEEL AFRAID THAT IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN.
