A lawsuit alleges that a defective transmission in certain Nissan models causes problems including hesitation, lag, and delay when trying to accelerate from a stop, jerking from the vehicles abruptly downshifting, and clunking noises when shifting.

Specifically, the complaint contends the affected vehicles are 2021-2021 Nissan Titan and Frontier vehicles equipped with a 9-speed “GE9R01A” transmission. The plaintiffs say Nissan touted this transmission as allowing for “smoother, improved acceleration” and “smoother operation,” but the affected vehicles instead experience accelerating, jerking, lurching forward, and the emission of clunking noises. They claim Nissan knew of the alleged defect, but has been unable to adequately repair it.

The three named Plaintiffs allege the defect affected their 2021 Nissan Titans. Their claims ranged from their vehicles down-shifting extremely hard when coming to a stop, jerking, and lurching forward before coming to a full stop; accelerating sluggishly from a stop; and making a loud clunking noise.

The lawsuit raises claims including breach of warranty, fraudulent concealment, unjust enrichment, and violations of state laws.  The plaintiffs have requested remedies such as damages and replacement or repair of the class.

The case is Jah Boone v. Nissan North America, Inc., case number 3:22-cv-00191, in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee.
