2017 3.5 Altima requiring multiple ECM recoding

Asked by Oct 19, 2019 at 08:09 AM about the 2017 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey all,

Every few months my 2017 3.5 Altima gets
jerking right around 20 mph and it feels like
the transmission is off. 64k miles. The two
times I took it in, Nissan told me the ecu
needing recoding. Doing that does help for a
few months but I end up back in the shop
getting it done frequently. Does this diagnose
make sense? I feell like theyre bull shitting me
and holding out on addressing a transmission
problem bc the cars still under warranty.

Also, the first time this happened I was at a red light in drive. The card reved to 5rpm,’jerked forward and then idled to 0 rpms. When I hit the gas the car wouldn’t go over 10 mph. I was able to pull over turn off the car and car drove at higher rpm then normal but reached normal speed
