Nissan Models with the Most Recalls

Nissan is one of the most popular automakers in the world. The brand is sometimes known for reliability, but no manufacturer is immune to defects. Here are some models that we have seen in Nissan lemon law buyback cases.

Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder is one of the best mid-size crossovers on the market – but it holds 10% of Nissan’s recalls. We have seen this model has experienced several reported issues since it was introduced to the market, including:

Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra is known worldwide for its dependability and fuel economy. Regardless of its reliability, the model has not been without issues – with the 2013 (8 recalls) and 2014 (7 recalls) being the most prevalent. In our experience the reported issues have included:

Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima has been a top midsize sedan model for more than 30 years. In those three decades, the Altima has had more than 90 recalls. We have seen that problems with the model include:

Nissan Versa

The Nissan Versa is one of the few remaining subcompact vehicles on the market, but it has been reported to have a few issues since its inception in 2006. The reported problems drivers have experienced include:

Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima is one of the automaker’s longest-running models – and makes up more than 5.5% of the brand’s recalls. We have seen that the most prevalent reported concerns include:

Nissan Lemon Law FAQs

Your Nissan may be a lemon if:

What compensation am I eligible for?

If your vehicle meets the qualifications of Nissan lemon law, the buyback should include:

Be sure to keep all receipts and documentation.

Can I take my Nissan to my trusted mechanic for repairs?

No. The vehicle must be taken to a manufacturer-certified repair facility while under warranty. Taking your vehicle to a 3rd party mechanic may void your claim.

What if my Nissan warranty is expired?

As long as you reported the defect to the manufacturer or dealer within the terms of the warranty, your vehicle may qualify for a Nissan lemon law buyback. If the warranty was expired when you reported the defect, and you cannot prove the defect occurred during the terms of the warranty, your claim will be very difficult to prove.

What is the time limit to file Nissan lemon law claims?

In the state of California, there is a four-year statute of limitations to file a lemon law claim. It is very important to seek legal advice as soon as you suspect a problem with your vehicle.

Does Nissan lemon law apply to used cars?

Yes. If your used vehicle was sold at a dealership with an express written warranty, or the remainder of the manufacturer warranty, and you reported the defect within the specified terms, you may have a valid Nissan repurchase lemon law claim.

What if I bought my Nissan “as is”?

The “as is” agreement essentially means there is no warranty in place and the buyer takes on all responsibility for any defects. Nissan lemon law in California does not protect consumers from “as is” sales. These terms are common with private sellers. Dealerships are required to specify if a vehicle is being sold “as is.” All of that being said, there are very specific legal requirements to selling a vehicle “as is.” Sometimes “as-is” doesn’t mean “as-is.”

How much does a Nissan lemon law lawyer cost?

Lemon law lawyers should work on a contingent fee agreement. This means the attorney only gets paid if (s)he can obtain a recovery for you – consumers shouldn’t pay a penny upfront. In addition, AFTER the lemon law lawyer wins the case, the lemon law requires the manufacturer/defendant to pay all of your legal fees. Moreover, most lemon attorneys will not take your case unless they think they can win. In other words, anyone can afford to hire a skilled lemon law lawyer.

Do You Need an Attorney in Your Nissan Repurchase Lemon Law Case?

Automakers will go to great lengths to avoid compensating consumers for selling faulty vehicles. A lemon law attorney will make sure you don’t fall prey to any tricks and earn the highest settlement – as quickly as possible.
