If you have bought a faulty Nissan Sentra in California you may be covered by lemon law depending on your manufacturing guarantee.
Below are the detailed complaints that have been reported from owners of the 2016-2019 Sentra who may be entitled to compensation
A faulty power train system has led to complaints about juddering noises and loud banging coming from the car speeds. This fault happens when the clutch is activated and does occur more frequently when going over speed bumps. Some drivers have reported that the car will be working perfectly fine then after coming to a stop, say at stop lights, the car will shut off by itself and not start again.
Electrical System Problems
The electrical system faults with the 2016-2019 Nissan car range from vibrating and buzzing noises to full transmission failure. Other Sentra owners have reported that their car gets stuck in a particular gear. Also, some report brake failure while on the highway.
Engine and Engine Cooling
A flawed cooling framework is one of the top faults raised with Nissan Sentras. Reports express that the indoor regulator runs hot which means that overheating occurs even when the motor has not been running long. Drivers have reported that when stationary the automatic start will not work even when pressing on the brake pedal. The vehicle cycles through the electronic warning on the dashboard giving the message to press the auto start button.
In addition to the above complaints, the Sentra has had complaints about vehicle speed control, visibility issues, air bag problems, and fuel system defects logged against it.
