2012 Nissan Versa 1.6SV goes into "limp mode" right after starting

This is my last ditch attempt to fix my car. I have spent almost CAD 3000 at Metro Nissan (official Nissan dealership) Montreal and the problem isn't fixed.
My 2012 Nissan Versa 1.6SV goes into "limp mode" right after I start it up. In an attempt to solve this problem Metro Nissan at first changed the throttle body
and air filter. When the problem came back after 1 week they changed the IPDM. The IPDM change did not even last a day and the problem came back.
All the replaced parts are OEM.

Does anyone know what the problem is? Can anyone suggest some place in Montreal that can solve this? Otherwise, I might have to scrap the car.

Have someone download the error code. If going into limp you will have one of some type, potentially hundreds of things could be wrong there.

You are basically saying 'my car is broke, please fix it'. Impossible as you have presented the question.
Have someone at the Nissan dealership put their code reader into the OBD II port to see what error codes are coming up. Hopefully that will point the Service dept. to the right direction for solving the problem. It sounds to me like they just threw parts at the problem without trying to diagnose the problem first. If this particular Nissan dealership doesn't solve the problem, see if there's another Nissan dealership nearby that you could go to to see what they say. If no satisfaction there then find out who the regional Nissan rep. is and try that.
