Known Problems

The engine may stall at times due to a failed crankshaft position sensor and/or camshaft position sensor, These sensors can fail intermittently as they warm with the engine. Sensors on certain models have been recalled by Nissan and will be replaced as necessary. Please visit our recall section for this model to see if your vehicle is covered by this recall.

A faulty fuel damper can produce a ticking noise, which can be heard inside the cabin when the engine is idling. Replacement of the failed dampener should correct this problem.

This engine may burn engine oil faster than similar models. Frequent oil checks are important.

There was a service bulletin addressing a problem with front tire wear and tire noise. The tires would "growl" or "roar" at speeds under 30 mph or under moderate braking on smooth roads. The repair first involved resetting the front alignment and then either replacing or rotating (side-to-side) the front tires. This fixed the concern for some, though others still reported a recurring issue.

A navigation unit that is failing can intermittently display a disc error on the screen.
