sounds like the transmission is gone. If they bought it from a dealership then you should at least have a 30 day warranty. If it was bought from a private owner, depending on the state, it could be covered by the lemon law. Most states have a lemon law on used automobiles. Good luck. P.S. sounds like the battery could be dead if you have to keep jump starting it.

TRANSMISSION Question: Did Dealership damage it intentionally

this is an electronically controlled transmission, have u had the transmission control computer tested for codes? if not saying the tranmission is defective is a wild guess, since they (the dealer) were the last to work on this they may have disturbed wiring or a sensor, not really sure of course what they got into in the course of this repair, any dealer worth there salt will do a "courtesy" inspection free of charge.

Are you the original buyer? If so I would have contacted nissan because most states have what is referred to as a lemon law. According to, Lemon Law refers to the statement from the government that was created to protect consumers from defects in automobile. An automobile that has manufacturing defect(s) or if it requires repeated repairs after purchase and if the automobile is under warranty period, such a vehicle is termed as a lemon.

A law was placed for the benefit of consumers to prevent them from a lemon vehicle. In a nut shell if any vehicle such as a car is under warranty period and is suffering from various defects that prevent a consumer to use the vehicle effectively then Lemon law act or the Magnuson Moss Act comes into force.

Lemon law can be enforced on any sort of vehicle like a car, truck, van, SUV, motorcycle, boat or computer, etc. If any of these consumer durables is found to be defective then the consumer is entitled for either money back, replacement or a cash settlement. The law can be consulted with a Lemon law attorney as various states have different lemon laws. Some states have a lemon law for only the automobiles but some also include other consumer durables like computers, etc.

A dealer or manufacturer should have made number of attempts to repair the vehicle before being declared as lemon. Usually three or more attempts in row over a short period of time are required for any vehicle to be termed as lemon. Lemon law is also applicable to vehicles which have been resold but are still under warranty and meet the mileage and time criteria. More often it is very difficult to persuade a manufacturer to accept a lemon vehicle. In such cases a lemon suit is often called for.

To ensure whether a vehicle is a lemon or not one should observe certain conditions of the vehicle before pursuing a lemon law suit. A vehicle should exhibit some serious defect or some abnormal condition. Such a condition should be covered by manufacturer's warranty. Number of attempts for repair should also be taken into account before preparing a lemon law suit. A written notice should have also been issued to the manufacturer prior to a lemon law suit.

A vehicle that has been bought back by the manufacturer from the customer is known as a Lemon Buy Back. Such lemon buy backs are often sold in auctions as used cars by the manufacturers.

The Lemon law enforced for protecting consumers from the lemon vehicles is Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. This lemon law states that any advertised guarantee should explicitly state relevant information about a warranty. This law ensures that any warranty for goods above $15 should be clearly expressed on the goods and should be clear and easy to understand. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty act enables a consumer to bring suit to any manufacturer, supplier, warrantor, or service contractor for any defective piece of good or services.

A lemon vehicle explicitly loses market value due to its manufacturing defect. Moreover, manufacturing defects may lead to several life threatening circumstances. It also substantially impedes a person's ability to control or operate a motor vehicle for ordinary use or intended purposes. Any manufacturing defect can also create a substantial risk of fire or explosion. All these risk elements call for enforcement of Lemon law in the states of United States. This law helps consumer from all such threats and hazardous circumstances.

Power steering

Upon research on your steering issue it seems to be on problem GM is aware of but no solutions yet.Since this is covered on your warranty they must by law correct it.See if this is covered by the lemon law. Every state has enacted some type of “lemon law” to protect consumers who end up with defective vehicles. Even though the term “lemon” is primarily used for cars, it also includes all consumer products such as cars, motorcycles, RVs , computers, boats, refrigerators, etc. that frequently fail to meet the set standards of quality and performance.
In general, to qualify for protection under a Lemon Law: You must have a defective product that has not been fixed within a reasonable number of repair attempts as defined by your state.
The product has undergone repairs for the same problem or has been out of service by reason of repair for more than a reasonable number of days during the warranty period.
  • Any problem that substantially impairs the use and market value of the product and the warrantor is unable to make the product free from defects within a reasonable number of attempts.
  • If you qualify under the lemon law for your product, you may be entitled to receive a refund or a replacement product, plus sales taxes, licensing and title fees, registration fees, rental product costs and towing charges in case of automobiles, as well as any finance or interest charges and attorney fees. Generally, the choice of refund or replacement product is that of the consumer and not the manufacturer.
