Nissan Timing System Class Action

MERCHANT LAW GROUP LLP is launching a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Nissan Canada Inc. on behalf of all individuals in Canada who purchased and/or leased the following vehicles:

  • Nissan Maxima model years 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
  • Nissan Quest model years 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009
  • Nissan Altima model years 2004, 2005, 2006 (with the VQ35 engine)
  • Nissan Pathfinder model years 2005, 2006, 2007
  • Nissan Xterra model years 2005, 2006, 2007
  • Nissan Frontier model years 2005, 2006, 2007 (with the VQ40 engine)

The class action is based on a defect in the Timing Chain Tensioning System.

The Timing Chain Tensioning System is an important component of the Nissan Vehicles’ engines. When the Timing Chain Tensioning System fails, it can cause a variety of problems, including the inability to accelerate and maintain speed, as well as, catastrophic engine failure. When any of these occur while the vehicles are in motion, occupants of the vehicles are exposed to rear end collisions and other accidents.

The class actions will seek financial compensation or benefits for affected Canadians who own or lease one of the defective vehicles in question.
