Nissan's emissions test data falsified

Nissan joined the increasing list of automakers who have admitted to falsifying emissions and/or fuel economy figures. The company said it had uncovered falsified data from car exhaust emissions tests at most of its plants based in Japan. Since the Volkswagen's scandal broke in September 2015, nearly every major automaker including--Daimler, General Motors, Suzuki and Mitsubishi have all been caught up in falsifying fuel economy figures or cheating on emissions testing.

This is not a case of Nissan software engineers writing emissions test defeat code. Only about 1,000 cars were affected, and almost all of these cars still met regulatory emissions limits

Nissan has had a lot of issues with their CVT transmissions failing early. The cars are fairly reliable otherwise, but the CVT is a black stain.

Another example of foreign car manufacturers lying

Right, like US car makers have never ever lied even once

Well, 1,000 car or one million, shares in Nissan Motor on Monday slumped about 5 percent to their lowest level in more than a year

Remember the days when car companies were being hailed for making big advances in fuel efficiency? Happy times.

Maybe so, but earlier incident led to the recall of 1.2 million vehicles.
