|Complaint Category||Number of Complaints|
|Forward Collision Avoidance: Automatic Emergency Braking|
|Unknown Or Other|
|Forward Collision Avoidance: Adaptive Cruise Control|
|Vehicle Speed Control|
|Forward Collision Avoidance: Warnings|
|Traction Control System|
According to complaints made to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), components causing issues in the 2022 Nissan Frontier are varied. Indeed, many complaints cite multiple components in their complaints. Forward collision avoidance ranks highest in terms of numbers. But almost all the complaints in this category include other issues, including the electrical system.
The most serious complaint under Forward Collision Avoidance is also listed under Air Bags and Service Brakes. It states that while the owner, from Puerto Rico, was traveling at between 52 and 54 mph on a highway, the brakes didn’t respond when pressed. Also, “the automatic emergency braking did not activate or stop the vehicle.” The airbags didn’t deploy either. The truck crashed into a vehicle in front, but “Thanks GOD, NOBODY WAS HURT PHYSICALLY.”
The powertrain is next on the list, followed by electrical system issues. We deal with both of these below. But it’s worth quoting one of the NHTSA complaints about transmission here:
“Transmission failed catastrophically after 1300 miles of use. Vehicle was towed to Nissan who confirmed multiple solenoids had failed within (the) transmission. Vehicle is completely inoperable. Manufacturer has been unhelpful getting (my) vehicle repaired. Manufacturer has (a) history of supplying vehicles with inferior transmissions
Today’s vehicles are built with an insane amount of technology that makes life easier, when the systems work the way they should.
One NHTSA complaint says, “I bought my 2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-X on 09/12/2021. Since day 1 it had something loose under the hood and was making cracking sounds. Had to bring it in and they tightened something and then had to do a full re-alignment. And before I even hit 1k miles my aerial / backup camera stop working and I’m now waiting on a whole new camera control assembly unit that is on back order and they claim could take months.”
The complaint goes on to state: “Also my AEB sensor is not working and after doing research I see a lot of people have had issues with that too and the vehicles making unexpected AEB lock engagement in the middle of driving on the highway. In addition I’ve also had a 4th issue, the steering seems very off balance and vehicle sways too easily. I feel like this truck has had too many issues for being brand new and not only has been very inconvenient but I also feel it is a safety hazard at this point.”
Nissan knows that the issues are larger than expected. Just look at Service Bulletin #NTB21-100. This communication states that the wireless charging function will only work if the doors are shut. If this were a “normal” occurrence as stated by the automaker, there wouldn’t need to be a Service Bulletin about it. Everyone would know that’s how wireless charging works. Yet, it’s not normal and the automaker can’t keep making excuses for the glitches in the included technology.
We aren’t living in an era where people have to stand a certain way to get the TV antenna placed just right in order to watch their favorite show, no matter how much Nissan tries to portray that it’s normal.
The powertrain is responsible for taking the transmitted power and moving it to the wheels so the truck can function. Yet, the 2022 Nissan Frontier is struggling to make this basic operation happen smoothly.
Here’s one Edmunds review worth noting. “There seems to be vast pressure on all companies to increase their automatic transmissions to 8 or 9 speeds and to alter the computer shift mapping to move the car into as high a gear as possible. They clearly went too far and have developed issues. The car will go to the highest gear, whether it drives well at that gear or not. You will also find that it will not properly downshift to first gear when you come to a stop sign (or down shift when driving slowly). I have found myself driving with manual mode too often to compensate.”
Another major transmission issue causes rollaway when vehicles are in Park. On June 24, 2022, the NHTSA published a recall notice from Nissan North America. NHTSA Campaign Number 22V457000 warns that the transmission parking pawl might not engage when the Frontier is shifted into Park.
The pawl is what engages with a ratchet to prevent motion in a particular direction. When it doesn’t engage, it can cause a vehicle “rollaway.” This, as the recall points out, will increase the risk of a crash.
Most of the powertrain complaints relate to the 2022 Frontier rolling in Park. Two report crashes. At least one states that the parts needed for the recall aren’t available.
An owner from California states that when notified about the recall, the parts weren’t available. Then, “while parking the vehicle, the gear shifter was shifted to park (P). However, the vehicle rolled backward.” Luckily, the pickup truck didn’t crash and the driver was able to apply the parking brake to park the vehicle.
This was on July 20, and the dealer confirmed that parts were not yet available. The VIN tool confirmed this.
An owner from Florida states that while the vehicle was parked, she exited the vehicle to place some items in the truck bed. However, the vehicle started to roll away at about 2 mph. Her husband jumped back into the vehicle and used the parking brake to stop it.
The dealer diagnosed that the failure was related to the same NHTSA Campaign Number: 22V457000 (Power Train). The vehicle was not repaired, possibly because it was in early July before the remedy plan was announced.
On July 1, 2022, the owner of a 2022 Nissan Frontier accelerated, went over the curb, and crashed into a parked vehicle while the driver was in Park. The parked vehicle crashed into another unattended parked vehicle in front of him.
The driver said it “felt as if he was being pushed.” He “was pressing on the brakes, but the vehicle continued to move forward. There was an unknown yellow light that illuminated.” To make it worse, the airbags didn’t deploy either.
“The police arrived on the scene and filed a report. There were no injuries. There were no medical treatments on the scene.” However, the entire front of the vehicle was damaged. The passenger side of the vehicle in front of them was damaged.
This second crash-related complaint is from a Kentucky owner. It describes how his vehicle crashed while parked outside his garage door. Ironically, the VIN tool advised no recalls for the vehicle.
“On June 29, 2022, my 2022 Nissan Frontier was parked (in the) drive in front of (the) garage door. I arrived home for lunch and parked my cab farm tractor in (the) yard under (a) shade tree to keep cool while I was inside my home.”
When he returned, he discovered the Frontier was sitting against the front tire of his tractor. “The truck had moved 25 yards for no reason.” After establishing there was minor damage, he discovered that the truck was still in Park.
He tested the truck “and all functions were normal as they were 6 weeks ago when I purchased (it) new.” At the time, the key wasn’t in the truck and no-one else had access to it. Although his wife, who had driven the Frontier last, hadn’t used the parking brake, the vehicle was in Park.
Just like the powertrain, the fuel system is equally as important. Yet, this system has faced some issues as well, even with a recall. NHTSA Campaign Number 21V917000 states that the tow hitch wasn’t installed correctly on some trucks, leaving the structural integrity of the fuel tank at risk. In these trucks, the leaf spring could contact the tank in an accident, which could cause a fire and serious injury. Of course, by now, many owners are hoping that the truck would burn to a pile of rubble in the middle of a freeway somewhere just so they can stop driving it.
The structure is another sore spot for many Frontier owners. It just doesn’t seem to be built to any level of quality that would have been expected.
Here’s a final Edmunds review. “The interior feels very cheap with acres of hard plastic. They can give you a worthless indicator light that tells you the airbag is inactive, but they could not give you a TPMS that gives individual tire pressures.”
Another recall, NHTSA Campaign Number 21V958000 states that the seat belt bracket mounting bolts might not have been tightened correctly on the left rear seat. Because of this, the bracket could break during a collision. If this occurs, the restraint might not hold, leading to an increased chance of injury to that occupant.
This is not an “adventure” any person would ever “choose,” yet it’s being forced on Nissan Frontier owners as if it is normal to have bolts tightened incorrectly. The truth is, Nissan’s quality control is failing and leaving a lot of people at risk on today’s roads.
Think you have a lemon? Sit back and let the experts work on your lemon at no cost to you. The law makes Nissan pay legal fees. You may be able to get your lemon out of your life. Every year, auto manufacturers buy back, replace or pay cash settlements to thousands of ‘lemon’ owners like you.

The truck is giving false data for gas mileage the truck is reading a lot higher gas mileage than I'm actually receiving my truck on average gets 15 miles a gallon but the truck itself states is getting 19 to 20mpg. The truck started receiving poor gas mileage after they did the tcm update to the truck in october 2022. I have an app that tracks my gas mileage and it shows the truck getting a lot less mpg than what the computer on the truck indicates. On average there's about a 4 to 5 mile per gallon deviation from reality versus with the truck indicates. The truck used to get 18 to 20 miles per gallon when I 1st purchased it in may but after the tcm update in october it no longer even gets close to 17 miles a gallon which indicates on the sticker. Full disclosure I drive 95% in the city only. Transmission shifting issues. When I drive the transmission lags has weird shifting characteristics when the transmission is cold I was able to reproduce this on a brand new nissan frontier that had the tcm update. The truck has a slipping issue of not wanting to go under its own power when driving from a stop sign or stop light the truck acts like it doesn't want to move when you give it fuel. Talking with the service adviser at nissan dealership I am not the 1st person to complain about this issue. All the problems that I am discussing happened after the tcm update. I've tried calling nissan directly and I get nowhere but the run around no one wants to take responsibility for the update issue and I've even had a long conversation with their specialist who took my vehicle out and proving to them that I was getting poor gas mileage and weird shifting characteristics and still they have yet to resolve my issue or offer a solution to my issue.

Driving up a mountain road to a ski resort, my abs, traction control, forward collision warning, and rear collision warning lights all turned on at the same time. My abs and traction control systems turned off, as evidenced by increased sliding around and no abs present when attempting to stop. I took the vehicle in for an oil change, recall repair, and asked the service managers to look at the safety systems. They informed me that they needed to "order parts" to rectify the issue and they did not have an estimated delivery date for the parts. A week later, I called the service department and was told they needed to order a "rear axle" and that it was backordered with no estimated delivery date. I have filed a complaint with nissan consumer affairs.

While driving I heard a couple beeps and the display said "system failure". Then all the warning lights (abs, forward collision, andrear collision) were on. This will be the third time it has happened. The dealer looked into it and determined it might be the condition when driving like rain or fogg or now, but at the time it happened, it was a clear day. No fix or solution was done to the truck.

I purchased a new trailer wire end connector for my utility trailer 7 wire flat that plugs into rear of pickup. I purchased hopkins endurance 7rv metal connector#48510. This connector is metal and has two piece pistol grip handle. I followed all instructions. The last step was to apply the two piece handle on frame over wires inside. This is problem when you put them togather and apply supplied screw you are to put screw thru inside 7 wires that you can not see. When I turned on I got instant smoke/fire blown fuse. The screw went between ground&hot wire. Delay in short could have caused accident or unattended fire. Product reviews show other owners having same problem as I experienced.

This vehicle has less than 5000 miles. While trying to make a turn the power steering went out. Luckily I was moving at a low rate of speed but fear that someone else may experience this at a high rate of speed and end up with more tragic results. If they do not have the part to fix this vehicle as I am being told then why are they still building them. I am paying insurance on a vehicle that I cannot use. Either fix the vehicle or refund me my money because as it stands now this vehicle is totally worthless.

8/21/2022 while driving on ih 30 eastbound during a heavy rain storm the adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning system, anti-lock brakes and traction control light came on. The loss of the anti-lock brakes and traction control systems make driving this nissan truck hazardous as braking distance is now increased during in-climate weather and traction control loss on a truck which is already light in the rear unsafe as any accumulation of water on the roadway will decrease traction increasing likelihood of a spin out of this truck more likely to occur. Adaptive cruise control and lane departure systems may be optical and heavy rains may render them inoperable. This shouldn't effect the anti-lock brakes and traction control systems for this truck. When I google the symptoms others have posted that this is a common occurence for the 2022 nissan frontier sv model.

I am unsure which components, but have had more than 1 issue with this vehicle. First, was the scariest. Iwas backing out of driveway onto the roadway, and the back up alarm went of and brakes locked up as the onward traffic was coming towards me. I was barely able to move in time. There was no cars or pedestrians near the back of truck to even set it off. Still scared to back it up for fear of not being lucky enough the next time it happens. Computer system issue?? While driving, seatbelt alarm goes off 60% of time while I am wearing mine and only one in vehicle. I tried getting video of this issue since it does not happen consistently. The other issue, while driving, all the lights on dash came on and it flashed 2 different messages about the system failure. This truck is 3 months old and I am scared to drive it!! Just want to see if there have been any other people with similar experience in their nissan.

I tried to call the nissan consumer affairs number in the nhtsa notice and I was disconnected multiple times ; they do not answer ; I then called the dealership service center at nissan port chester in ny and they said they "are restricted by the manufacturer" and cannot address the safety issue since we and nissan are on notice of a safety defect and a risk of accident and injury this is not a responsible posture . I intend to make this public so I would ask that nhsta take appropriate action to cause nissan to take corrective action without delay . Any delay creates risk of injury please advise what you intend to do thank you

On september 16, 2022 my 2022 nissan frontier equiped with 997. 00 dollar optional rear automatic braking parking assist failed to work. I was backing out of somerset, ky shopping center position when a adult woman pushing shopping cart passed by behind, I observed her in mirror and stopped before impact. My truck issued no beep or auto braking as vehicle was supposed to do. In the past 6000 miles driven I have observed the failure of aeb/beeping when backing close to tree or other car, and other times it will beep and auto brake when your backing up to a concrete parking curb that is just 5 inch tall designed to put your tire against. I paid extra for this backing assist due wife and I are near 70 yrs old and suffer from stiff necks. I will take in for service and mention this failure. I would warn others this option is waste of money as I don't trust it, I look around and check mirrors as I back.

Vehicle has repeatedly automatically applied the brakes when using cruise control at highway speeds. It happens when going under an underpass that is casting a strong shadow. First time it happened I reported it to nissan usa. They told me to take it to the dealership. I did and they found nothing wrong. Next time it happened they said they'd have a regional consumer affairs person call me. They did, but in so many words they told me "tough."

So nissan is using hankook tires that hankook says is good for 70,000 miles. But on the new frontier mine in 10 months and 11,000 miles have wore to 4/32nd to 5/32nds in spots and nissan and hankook says they won't warranty tires sold on new vehicles. So I'm supposed to just spend another
,000 on new tires for my new truck.

My new vehicle purchased from a nissan dealer has presented me with the same error twice, the first time they solved it for me but then it continued to fail, however I am writing here because I received a report that vehicles of this model have problems, it seems to me an abuse that is excused in that there are no vehicles to charge a "market adjustment" technically this is an extortion if you want a vehicle there is no more payment, and now I receive a letter from nissan where my vehicle may present faults and I present it from the beginning and they do not they saw nothing on the computer, so I pay almost ,000 for a vehicle where they later tell me that it could cause an accident? I get nervous and I don't want to use it but I have to pay the installments or does it damage my credit? What does the departments in charge do in this case? Do we put my life, my family and other people at risk to support these corporations? Is there no insurance or bonds to support these damages? Supposedly the only fault they found was a brake sensor that was stuck but after changing it it failed again and also when I'm stopped the vehicle doesn't completely gain stability I always use the emergency brake apart from the fact that I made the claim at a nissan dealership and they told me that I should go to where I bought it (absurd and stupid answer), I sent an email to nissan and they never responded (that is, they are participants and bad service after the sale, a complete scam, what they offer from guarantee at the national level) and they do not leave a record of the claims because everything is on their page.

I purchased my 2022 nissan frontier on june 30, 2022. The driver's seat belt, as well as the passenger seat belts, have the fabric loop. In researching this issue, all the articles I have read indicate that the driver's seat belt should not have the loop. Is this something that is a safety issue?

While descending my steep (20% grade) driveway with the transmission in the manual mode and selected to 1st gear when the engine speed reached approx. 2500 rpm (15 mph) the transmission shifted out of gear, the check engine light illuminated, and "automatic transmission fault" appeared on the center display. Following this moving the selector lever to different gear selections did nothing except when placed in park. To get the transmission to respond requires turning the vehicle off and back on. Dealer has looked at the vehicle and did not find anything at this time. This has happened on multiple occasions, and could result in loss of control of the vehicle resulting in a crash.

On june 29, 2022 my 2022 nissan frontier was parked drive in front of garage door. I arrived home for lunch and parked my cab farm tractor in yard under shade tree to keep cool while I was inside my home. When I came back to leave my tractor had frontier truck sitting against front tire of my tractor, the truck had moved 25 yards for no reason. The truck had made slight contact with tractor bumper with tail light lense laying in yard, the trailer ball had also struck tractor tire and prevented hard impact. I went in garage and obtained key fob and found truck still in park. I tested truck and all functions were normal as they were 6 weeks ago when I purchased new. Key was not in truck and no one else had access in the 15 minutes I was inside. The parking brake was not used by wife when she parked, but it was in park. Mileage was 2550 . I someone had been standing between the two vehicles they could have been rolled over. I'm out over 500 bucks for tail light, I checked vin number, was advised no recalls. Wife is learning to use parking brake.

Occasionally the doors will not lock or u lock properly. On multiple occasions, when using they key fob to unlock the doors, you can hear them unlock, but the driver's side door will not. The other doors will be unlocked. I will sometimes have to lock/unlock multiple times or use they key to manually unlock. There have also been at least 2 occasions where the doors will be locked, but I was able to open a door, setting off the car alarm.

1. Drivers power seat back changes position, seemingly by itself overnight. Dealer says it's a known "engineering issue." service personnel said a fix is coming but not sure when. Some people think that those affected are accidentally hitting the power seat switches but I have doubts about that. It's an ongoing problem, on and off, since purchasing vehicle 11-9-21. 2. Cruise control is not smooth at all. The truck may lose two mph then the engine may shift down a bunch of gears and the engine needlessly races too much in getting back to speed. It's the worse cruise control I've ever experienced in my life. I reported this to the dealer and they noted it. Nothing was done to correct the problem which has been ongoing since purchasing vehicle 11-9-21.

On 2 recent occasions the truck's warning lights flashed on the dash and the vehicle applied the brakes for no apparent reason. The first occurance the dealer in fairfield, ohio, guessed there may have been debris blocking the camera eye. On the second occurance the dealer in springdale, ohio, could find no recalls or reason for the malfunction. Our concern is this malfunction will happen when the vehicle is going 70 mph on an interstate.

Vehicle is a new 2022 nissan prox4. Purchase date 12/13/21. No issues until february 6 (3100miles). Car was serviced 2/4/22 for initial oil change and all systems were âgreen lightâ on routine diagnostic test at time of oil change per dealer. Now various (abs, engine light, various warning lights) appear while driving and when engine restarted they disappear, only to reappear again intermittently. I suspect an electronic problem or computer malfunction. This is a safety issue due to driver distraction. I have been told by others (facebook group) that they have had similar electronic issues with this 2022 nissan pro 4 x vehicle that have not been resolved.

I bought my 2022 nissan frontier pro-x on 09/12/2021. Since day 1 it had something loose under the hood and was making cracking sounds. Had to bring it in and they tightened something and then had to do a full re-alignment. And before I even hit 1k miles my aerial / backup camera stop working and I'm now waiting on a whole new camera control assembly unit that is on back order and they claim could take months. Also my aeb sensor is not working and after doing research I see a lot of people have had issues with that too and the vehicles making unexpected aeb lock engagement in the middle of driving on the highway. In addition I've also had a 4th issue, the steering seems very off balance and vehicle sways too easily. I feel like this truck has had too many issues for being brand new and not only has been very inconvenient but I also feel it is a safety hazard at this point.

The speed control sensor is located in the rear driveshaft passenger side. During a left turn at less than 30-miles and less than 600-miles in the odometer, the speed sensor failed to cause the abs system, tire pressure, and other sensors to fail as well. The dealer technician determined the rear driveshaft was either damaged at the assembly line or had a defective speed sensor from the factory. There were no other warnings, messages, or symptoms prior to this failure.

I have a 2022 frontier and it seems that the rocker arms have come loose and it makes a fluttering sound. Has anyone else had this problem?
Bought a 2023 frontier SV 2 months ago. My first brand new vehicle purchase ever! I was in love with it! First road trip up to 75+mph the front/rear (it switches back and forth) vibrates like crazy! Dealer said alignment was perfect and tires were balanced! Now the transmisson is shifting all over the place doesn’t know what gear it wants!? Especially in stop and go traffic it always does one hard downshift at a fluid stop then it will down shift again when you think your stopped and you have to apply more pressure to the break. But not on a quick stop. Dealership cannot replicate the vibrating but it almost feels unsafe to drive at times. They tell me the transmisson is just really busy.
I recently bought a 2023 Nissan Frontier. Since then I have had the truck in the shop twice. First time was for Horn honking when tilting the wheel up or down, I was told it was just a really sensitive horn and also for the driver side seat wanting to recline very slowly so I have to reset it every morning and sometimes in the afternnoon or early evenings before driving the vehicle. Diagnosis; nothing wrong with seat but I can come back if it continues to bother me. And the second trip to the shop was for leaky rear shock, Diagnosis; sometimes they overfill them for shipping purposes and to prevent rusting…..WHAT! Also when stomping on the gas, vehicles revs up really high but seems to have a problem accelerating. I was told that is not, not normal, just how the tranny responds. I have spent alot money on the truck and upgrades and so far the factory warranty is a Joke. The dealership says they can’t fix anything until there is a legitimate problem. Kind of seems to me like there is one!
Got my 22 in October of 2021 when they first came out. SV LWB. Everything was smooth sailing till after the 2nd oil change. Ever since, I’ve had 4 occurrences where I would get multiple system malfunctions/lights, AT check light, and check engine. Light illuminates. I lose acceleration power as well when this happens and they’ve blamed it on one thing after another claiming to have fixed the problem. Just recently, it completely shut off after using the remote start before I could even disable the anti theft feature (brake + start/stop) and all the same warnings came on, truck was in accessory and I had to completely turn it off and restart it with the start stop button. I also took pictures every time. They blamed it on having not had my trans fluid changed at 30k miles, which was kind of funny. Because after paying $500 for them to flush and change it, I got not even a full mile away before the warnings came on again and I lost acceleration again. I took it back to Midway Nissan in Phoenix for the 4th time right after and they had it for 2 nights to get help from their “tech line” on the issue. They checked several things and so far I haven’t had the issue again in the last few days but I feel like there’s it’ll happen at any moment and it kills me because I love this truck but shouldn’t have to live with expecting it to screw up at any moment. I have all receipts for the “repairs”.
Where do I begin? Less than a week after purchase I had a cylinder misfire. They replaced a coil pack and plug. Next issues was an abs malfunction. Nissan had a TSB to replace part of the wiring harness. Now ICC lights up the dash once it detects a vehicle in front of me. Finally last issue is hesitant starting. Sounds like a fuel pump or injector issue. $45,000 truck and have had nothing but problems. I love the new look and design but come on Nissan! F****ng really!
2022 Nissan Frontier with only 5800 Miles- dies every day for past 10 days. Had to have Nissan roadside assistance 6 times and a friend come get me 3 times in past 10 days and it is back at shop again for 4th time. They say it is the “brake lamp switch” which isn’t allowing the truck to start. Although they replaced it, it still isn’t working. Now they say they have to “micro adjust it” but they have had it now again for 2+ days. I’ve been stuck now a number of times including on NYE by myself in the dark. I will never again get another Nissan.
Intelligent Cruise Control shuts down when it detects a vehicle in front of me and display lights up like a Christmas tree.
ABS light came on and they replaced part of wiring harness.
Check Engine Light for cylinder misfire. Replaced plug and coil pack.

I bought a 22 ! First week all the abs lights came on ! 75 mph on the highway truck came to a skid on the interstate breaks stoped me I got on the side of the road called the service dept was told turn truck off it will reset !! This has happened 3 different times ! This truck is dangerous! The transmission is slipping won’t go over 40mph took it back to service had to have a harness replaced ! Dropped the tail gate down to haul a new sofa that was a joke truck won’t let me back up with tail gate down ! Nissan needs to buy back all these trucks !
I have several electrical issues:
1. Driver door locks about 50% of the time for no apparent reason when I exit the vehicle
2. The radio resets for no particular reason when I shut the vehicle off. Defaults to AM 1400
3. The collision avoidance system lights up when I drive and doesn’t reset until the vehicle is turned off and back on.
4. While in cruise control starting up a hill, the vehicle drops 2 or 3 gears, over reving the engine, scaring the crap out of me.
Just took delivery of 2023 Pro-4x four days ago. Took it out for a drive, got the new vehicle “wows”, outdoor temp 62F. This was my 1st & only drive without issues. I note the temp for suspect reasons, as will further explain. I work 6p-6a as a nurse. I come out the first time I drove it to work, start of day 2. Outside temp 19F. Start driving and the map lights come on, as well as the front/rear collision light. Pull into gas station, continues. Drove 20 miles home with map lights blaring driving on I-80 @ 75 mph. Don’t know enough about the vehicle yet, actuating the control switch on the map lights does nothing. Didn’t hit a pedestrian as the owner manual suggests, as speed suggests, heading down the interstate. Fast forward. I head to work 17:00, 65F, and viola, ZERO issues @ ambient temperature. Duplicate the aforementioned by 2 more shifts, and this morning, instead of having the map lights come on while on I-80, they come on after stopping for 10 minutes, flickering. I suspect a sensor issue. Or god forbid, a LEMON in infancy with much more FUN to come. Jesus! I’ve purchased too many vehicles to count, my first Nissan and if this is the foretelling of my life upcoming, it’s my last Nissan. I have 30 days to invoke the Lemon Law. I’d say I’m well on my way. Love the styling, but I’d rather drive my 70’ vette I can wrench on all day without too much to figure out what she wants!!! This truck is bipolar, schizophrenic, ADHD and psychotic all at once!
Since buying my 2022 Nissan frontier I got a recall notice because it slips out of park but never caught an appointment to get this fixed I’ve had to take the truck back to the dealer because the ABS failure warning comes on on the dashboard they said they fixed it the ABS failure warning is still coming on on the dashboard the backup warning goes off when there’s nothing behind the truck the screen of the backup camera and entertainment system blanks out and sometimes won’t come on till 2 or 3 minutes after the truck is going to start it also the truck has a very rough idle at times at this point it only has 6,000 miles on it and it is in excellent shape
This truck is a safety hazard. I have bought this truck less than four months ago. It has shut down three times to while driving has put me in an unbearable place on the highway and it will not stay in park. The whole system shut down with no acceleration to the car, will leave you in danger. Also have heard crackling sound like something was frying at the bottom of the truck. Also, the fan on the truck comes on loud like an airplane get ready to take off and then it kills the battery. This truck has a major electric issues I only beg for help somebody’s gonna get hurt in this truck if your truck has been in the shop like mine more than 30 days or more than three attempts on fixing it by Nissan you now have a lemon we all might just have a class action lawsuit now
I bought my 2022 Frontier in October of 2021. I am having the common issue of my ABS/Front Collision giving me a system fault when I am in heavy traffic. I have had it in the shop 3 times, of course they cant do anything until they see it as it resets when you shut the truck off. The last time it happened, I got there 5 minutes before the technicians left, I was told there was no one there that could look at it. Pretty frustrating, seems to be a common problem with this piece of junk. I’d leave the keys in it but no one would be dumb enough to steal it.
2022 Pro4x Luxury is hands down the worst new vehicle I have owned. Put 6000km on it while dealing with terrible shift mapping, cruise control that was less than intelligent, crap fuel economy, terrible handling. Never should have traded an f150 for this, anyway drove the Nissan to Ford last week and dumped it for a new 4dr Bronco. Couldn’t be happier.
Okay at first I was in love with my Frontier. Very quickly I realized that my seat wouldn’t stay in the position I put it. It reclines all the way back weather I’m driving or not. Also this problem has become a fantastic feature I didn’t know came with the truck. Driving down the highway every single safety feature shut down abs shut down traction control shut down, and autonomies breaking failed too. I might as well have been driving a brick down the highway. This has happened twice now. Seems safe right. Dealer needs to replicate vrs just going off of what the cpu says. We all know how that’s gonna go. I no longer feel safe in this truck.
I am driving a 2022 Frontier Crew Cab. Short bed. Ordered in October of 2021. Received it in April of 2022. I have had 3 times now, that is the safety system shuts down when traveling 60 + mph with the cruise control on and set, as I go through a dip or hit a rough stretch of road. Nothing that would cause me to lose control. It shuts down all safety sensors telling me to take the truck to a service center at once. I can stop, shut down the engine and restart. It will clear all issues, and everything is normal. After the third event, I set up an appointment to have it looked at. The local Nissan distributor scanned the truck and said it was a brake sensor gone bad. They fixed it. Two days later it did it again. Has anyone else seen this?
I have also had problems with the entertainment system not keeping track of MP3s from a flash drive. I can be in the middle of a book. Stop the truck. Once I start the engine again it gets to the end of the current track and then reverts back to the first song in the index, not the next in the folder as expected. This is with the repeat of the folder selected. It seems not to correctly log the current location of the file and order when playing.
The first issue is a concern. The second is a real nuisance. I drive 3000 to 5000 miles a month. I REALLY would like the mp3 player to work correctly.
I also have a problem with the door gasket being too short and constantly pulling out of place. The local shop said this is common. They say they can’t fix it…..A perfect response for a Nissan factory shop.
I know this is three issues but because all three issues do not seem to be logged in the error codes Nissan says it’s not an issue as they cannot recreate it with a simple drive. That is for the exception of the door gasket. They simply say it’s a non-issue? I need to know if I am alone with these issues or is this issues Nissan in not admitting to.
Purchased my 2022 in January and in February I had to take it in for a ECM reset, front windshield Cowell needed replacement. Undercarriage of truck has many rusted parts, found a loose bolt under my backseat and the plastic cover is broken. Top it off while driving a ⚠️ popped up saying warning system failure see owner s manual. Reading all this different issues I am seriously considering trading this truck in.
I did my research before buying this 2022 frontier. It sounded perfect…but after 8 months I want to sell it. Sways all over the road, screwed up electrical system, etc. Now for the third time I need to get it towed to a dealer and get more work done so I can drive it. I am very pissed off as this is the very first new vehicle I have ever bought.
Excessive brake dust! Nissan used the cheapest pads and cameras they could find! The truck sways all over on the highway!
Really sad for a 45k truck. Should have kept my F150!
The intelligent cruise control is not in the least bit intelligent.
If it drops 1 or 2 mph on a slight hill or wind it drops several gears and revs very high to recover that slight drop in speed. Cruise on Crack!
Bought a 22 Nissan frontier. ABS light started flickering for seconds then stayed on then went off then stayed on for a day. Passenger window is slow to open and close. After 2k miles tried to leave work… shift was stuck in park. Had to towe, truck is in the shop for a week to fix . Truck also makes a rumble or studder when coming to a stop or slowing down. Asked service manager if I possibly bought a lemon. He said absolutely not, just like other new cars things come up sometimes.
They put the hood on crooked it is so comical…i have never seen such poor quality. 2022 Frontier Pro X
