2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid QuestionsRefine by vehicle
what is the most common problems with these cars
My son's car has cut off on him twice while driving on the highway, once while taking me to work, and once while trying to pick me up from work. We have taken it to Nissan 22 and paid nearly two thousand dollars. Yet the problem still exist. They continue to say nothings wrong. Will they wait till he's seriously injured. I need help. He's my only child and a new father.
They told me it will cost $1000.00 and it will take a month to get the part! Does this sound right? Why so long?
I have been driving 55 miles/hour and the engine cut out and even by depressing the gas pedal there was no power, the cause according to nissan was BOTH of the catalytic converter need to be replace this was at 42k miles. Now at 92k miles, the engine power was lost at a stop light and nissan stated it was the converter inverter needed replacing. When I picked up the car after the repair within 15 miles the power cut out and the engine light and many others lit up. I brought the car back to the nissan dealer and they contacted the nissan engineers-no word yet on the cause. Any thoughts??
If the weather is warm the car overheats after 30-50 miles at highways speed. Has been checked over by Nissan Hybrid certified shop twice. Found nothing wrong. Reported that it is not throwing any codes.
