Infiniti and Nissan drivers have been complaining about their Nissan clutch pedal feeling “light” and/or falling and staying on the floorboard.
CarComplaints Blog claims the fluid from the Nissan clutch master cylinder pushes to the slave cylinder, “developing hydraulic pressure and ultimately disconnecting the transmission from the engine”. The hydraulic fluid then leaks due to the pressure, taking away fluid from the slave cylinder and damaging the clutch slave cylinder, clutch disc and pressure plate. Lawsuits claim the Nissan clutch pedal can fall and disable the ability to shift gears because the slave cylinder is prone to deteriorating from the constant hydraulic fluid exposure, according to the Blog.
Nissan has known of the concerns with their clutch pedal since 2008, and had issued a customer service program to fix a potential cause of the Nissan clutch pedal in the manufacturing process. This, however, has not solved consumer troubles as the Nissan clutch pedal continues to feel “light” and fall or stick to the floorboard.
Models that could be impacted by the Nissan clutch pedal problem occurring include:
- Nissan 35oZ
- Nissan 37oZ
- Infiniti G35
- Infiniti G37
- Infiniti Q60
