Why won't my car accelerate?

Asked by Mar 19, 2015 at 03:06 PM about the 2012 Nissan Sentra 2.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 Nissan sentra and once I go 70mph
the speedometer goes down to 60mph and does
not go any faster no matter how hard I press the
gas pedal. I had someone look at it but they only
told me I might have a transmission fluid leak.

Wondering if you got an answer for this, I seem to have the same trouble on longer drives.

Same and similar problems with my 2012. Did you get any answers?
