Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

How many miles do you have on the car and do have a check engine light on when the car is running?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
36000 miles ,the engine light is off when I'm running.

So if the transmission is staying engaged and not shifting out, this could be a power train issue which would be covered under warranty since you have a 5 year or 60k mile warranty on the engine & transmission. So you may want to have the dealer check this for you cause if there is no warning lights, that normally is a indication of a mechanical issue with the transmission

I have also see where customers think the vehicle is not shifting cause it's making a roaring type noise when that is actually due to a bad wheel bearing. So you may want to have that checked as well.

It is just first time .

so this only happened 1 time?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I'm not sure whether this symptom is normal. When it stucks, the sound seems a little bit noisy.

If it happened only one time, they may not be able to do anything. But you may want to just swing by the dealer and have them road test with you for the noise to see if it is anything to be concerned about.
