Can Nissan Survive Its Recent Troubles?

Nissan was once regarded as one of the automotive world’s great comeback stories. A scrappy Japanese manufacturer that had earned worldwide respect under the leadership of Carlos Ghosn. But now that man is an international fugitive, and Nissan is struggling once again.

Can Nissan Survive Its Recent Troubles?

  • It’s their horrible JATCO CVT transmissions which is the main reason they’re failing. Comically unreliable, catastrophic failure before 70k miles is not uncommon.

  • I know people who have had Nissan cars and minivans. They never last. Also one day back in 2011, I was on my way to a Mets game and there was a traffic jam on the highway. When we got to the head of the jam, the guy had a new Nissan Versa and it just broke down in the middle of the highway, he couldn't even pull off to the emergency lane. That is when I said to myself I would never buy a Nissan, ever.

  • Putting junk CVTs transmissions in the Rouge was a stupid mistake after the first year. The rouge being a big success without improving quality. The Honda and Toyota CVTs are much more reliable.

  • I own a 2015 Nissan Xterra Pro-4X with over 75,000 miles. Only two minor warranty issues since I've had it. Just drove it on a 4,100 mile round trip from Vegas to Indiana. Blasted through a snowstorm on I-70 in the Rockies (semi trucks were required to pull over and install chains on their tires). Bulletproof and a vastly better value than a Toyota 4Runner. I also own a 2017 Nissan 370Z 6MT with over 30,000 miles. Zero issues so far. Made in Japan with one of the best V6 engines you can get. 362 horsepower with no turbos. Neither has a CVT.

  • If I would get a new car I would never ever get a Nissan. My dad had one back in like 2005 and the transmission failed my sister had one in 2010 transmission again. I don't want a nice-looking car if it is just gonna leave me on the streets and won't be reliable.

  • As an owner of a 2017 Nissan Rogue, these cars take more care than average car and you have to baby them which is fine by me, but not usually a thought for the average consumer. The CVTs are sensitive, the QR25DE engines have inconsistencies in valve clearance after 60,000 miles, and the battery seems to have a parasitic drain. Seems to be consistent issues with multiple cars including the 2007 infiniti M35, 2011 Nissan Altima, 2015 Nissan Juke, and so forth. Nissan or Nihan Sangyo has a lot of work to do to turn things around. Their vehicles are alright if you don’t mind cars ending their life at 150,000 miles or less, but they shouldn’t be at their end so soon. They need to do better with quality control, change the consumers perspective of the brand, and a lot of other things.

  • Their vehicles have been reliable up until they moved to the smaller SUV I think 2013. I have a 2008 Pathfinder with 200,000km going strong...not a spec of body rust, proactively bypassed the radiator to avoid the transmission/coolant dilemma. I wouldn't buy a newer one as the reviews have been very poor...its too bad.

    • In the video it is explained how as a strategy to gain 10% of the market the company focused on quantity and value based products at volume. It is that which encouraged questionable choices in quality on components, not any things with Renault. Its silly to think the merger has any influence over that and not the leadership of the strategy, Carlos Ghon

  • Ghosn's plan was not to save Nissan, he never did, he wanted to create the world biggest automaker by merging Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi together. This alliance also owns AwtoWAS (Lada), Dacia, Datsun, Infiniti and a couple more less known brands. All together would sell the same amount of cars or even a little more than Volkswagen. The Nissan managers simply didnt want that to happen so they were looking for something to pin on him that no one else would be interested in earlier on, and that was the tax evasion. He then put blame on Nissan. Additional to that he was the one creating Nissans financial problems. Nissan is responsible for 50% of Renaults turnover. Nissan develops and produces nearly all the cars for Renault for example the Kadjar (which is a Qashqai), the old Clio (Nissan Tiida), the new Clio (Nissan Micra), Renault Trafic (Nissan NV200), Renault Captur (Nissan Juke). This is why Nissan cars are more expensive than other, similar cars. They also promote Renault cars way better and more often than Nissan cars. For example the Nissan Leaf is not shown a single time in television ads, now compare to the Renault Zoe. You can also get a Renault Captur with 4 different engines, a Nissan Juke only features one single, underpowered engine with useless DCT for 117HP. This is the consequence of developing (spending money) for the success of other brands. I understand that people in europe will more likely buy a european car but they dont know they are driving a Nissan! Also people who are angry that Nissan had to leave 25.000 employees, you can thank Ghosn. Ghosn saved Nissan to death to help Renault get bigger and bigger, the result are job cuts. You wanna know how? Have a look at what I wrote above. In the end Ghosn is only a French tyrant who wanted to have even more power. This comment includes some inside information from (higher) Nissan/Infiniti employees to who I do not want to reveal more. Even if this is an american channel, I only mentioned Nissans problems in europe. I, for one, have been a passionated Nissan enthusiast and insider for a long time. I want people (viewers of this video) not to get the impression that Nissan is the "bad guy" in this case just because this channel is doing a report based on superficial information they could only get.

  • Back in the 80's and early 90's Nissan was fighting against Toyota for the No.1 Japanese car maker position, such as Century vs President, Alphard vs Elgrand, Lexus vs Infiniti...then Nissan began to lost its focus developing too many car models that the market couldn't absorb. The painful journey of Nissan still goes on to date.

Bring back the skyline GT-R r32,r33,r34 with a manual transmission and LHD for North America, update the looks if you like and bring back the RB26DETT...Bring back some old Datsun design true sports cars as well...Again redesign but with the RB26 in there lol

  • Ghosn was a cost-cutter and a bullshitter. Nissan/Infiniti vehicles started to show the cost-cutting. Cheap metal with rust issues. The only way Nissan would recall was if the government ordered them to. Then the class action suits started in the US. Rust issues, transmission issues etc...Infiniti is being chopped will become Nissan plus. Ghosn says Nissan will be gone in 2 years, he may be right.
