Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller and Shah, LLP filed this case with co-counsel in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, Nashville Division.  The action sets forth claims on behalf of consumers in the United States and its territories, including Puerto Rico, who purchased or leased a Class Vehicle (the “Class”).  The Class asserts breaches of warranty and alleges that Nissan North America, Inc. violated state consumer protection statutes by failing to disclose that the Class Vehicles have a defective CVT, which can lead to poor transmission performance or failure.
