The engine is the heart of the vehicle. A car can’t drive without a properly working engine.
Common symptoms of engine failures include:
- Engine Control Module (ECM) warning lights on the dash
- Check engine lights
- No start, excessive cranking
- Lack of acceleration
- Loss of power
- Stalling (most often when attempting to shift gear)
- Oil leaks
The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car.
Common symptoms of transmission failures include:
- Whining and clunking
- Burning smell
- Lack of response, hesitation
- Lunging, or jerking
- Noisy in neutral
- Leaking fluid
- Premature clutch replacements
Engine Cooling System Failure
A car’s engine cooling system is responsible for keeping the engine cool while it works to prevent overheating. The system does so by sending a liquid coolant through hoses and passages in the engine. As the coolant flows through these hoses and passages, it picks up and removes heat from the engine. The water pump has the job of keeping the coolant moving through the system, and the radiator re-cools the liquid so it can again be circulated through the passages in the motor.
Common symptoms of engine cooling system failure include:
- Overheating, especially on city roads or “stop-and-go” traffic
- Metallic smell coming from the engine compartment
- Coolant leaks
- Steam or smoke emanating from the engine compartment
Timing Chain Defect
The timing chain synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft within internal combustion engines. Misalignment of the chain can cause premature wear or engine failure.
Common symptoms of a bad timing belt include:
- Ticking noises from the engine
- Oil leaking from the front of the motor
- Harsh idle
Autonomous Emergency Braking Systems Defect
Many Infinitis are equipped with Autonomous Emergency Braking systems (AEB). The system is a safety feature designed to detect when a vehicle collision is imminent. The system applies the brakes much faster than a human can react, thus decreasing the likelihood and/or severity of a collision.
While these systems are designed to make roads safer, they are only effective if they function properly. The AEB system in many Infinitis have been known to stop vehicles suddenly when no collision was imminent, which can lead to a crash.
Emissions System Malfunctions
The exhaust system is made up of many parts: manifolds, oxygen sensors, catalytic converters, resonators, exhaust pipes, mufflers, and tailpipes. The exhaust system controls noise, directs fumes away from passengers, improves performance and fuel consumption, and is one of the most heavily regulated systems in vehicles today. California and Federal emissions warranties even require extended coverage of many emissions system components, even if a car’s basic warranties have expired.
Common symptoms of exhaust system failures include:
- Loud hissing sounds from the exhaust
- The smell of raw gasoline
- Decrease in power
- Lack of acceleration
- Loss of fuel efficiency
- Detached, hanging, or dragging exhaust pipe

At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Infiniti.
Infiniti is the luxury division of Japanese automaker Nissan. Infiniti officially started selling vehicles in North American in November 1989. As of 2020, there are 25 markets served by Infiniti new car dealers. The brand’s main markets are the U.S. and China. Repairpal, an industry recognized auto repair data tracker, gave Infiniti a Reliability Rating of 3.5 out of 5.0, and ranked it 16th out of 32 for all car brands. This rating is based on an average across 345 unique models. The average annual repair cost for an Infiniti is $638, which is above average.
In 2018, Nissan/Infiniti reported it sold 5,816,191 vehicles globally. It is estimated the automaker brings in $92 billion in annual revenue selling Nissan and Infiniti vehicles–that’s $2,918.81 every second!
I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?
Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Infiniti often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Infiniti’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
