Nissan Altima Investigation

Since 2013, Nissan Altima owners have been complaining to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about automatic transmission problems occurring in their 2013-2014 vehicles. The defective transmission supplied in the affected vehicles is known as a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This transmission is defective in design. As a result, the most notable problems that occur include:

  • Stuttering between gears
  • Hesitation
  • Sputtering
  • Vibration
  • Unusual noises
  • Premature transmission failure

Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP has opened an investigation into whether certain Altima vehicles have been equipped with defective automatic transmissions that can cause these problems as well as make the vehicle shudder or jerk.

We are investigating potential harm to all consumer residents in Tennessee who own, owned, lease, or leased a 2013 or 2014 Nissan Altima. Even if your current vehicle has not experienced any of the issues listed above, the underlying defect may still exist in 2013-2014 Nissan Altimas.

If you are an owner of a 2013 or 2014 Nissan Altima, please fill out the contact form below or contact our Nashville, Tennessee office at 615-434-7007.
