Heating and Air Conditioning Lines Rust and Leak
I purchased my 2004 Nissan Armada used and also purchased the top of the line extended warranty for it. The warranty cost over $2,000 and I hardly used it over the 3 years I had it. Well, as it happens the warranty ran out and problems occurred. The one I want to tell you about is the rear heat and air conditioning lines. I started having problems with my heat and was told my coolant lines were leaking. It was to cost close to $1,000 to have them replaced, because the "Body had to be lifted off the frame" to replace them???????????? Great Engineering EH?
The part was $200 and the rest was labor. WELL, I decided to just have the rear heater lines bypassed to save me the money...GOOD THING! This summer I had air conditioning problems...same issue... All the heater and Air Conditioning Lines are in the same group and that is the $200 part. The body has to be lifted off the frame to replace them. So now I have no choice if I want air conditioning. I contacted Nissan, complained about the engineering and asked if they would provide any assistance. I explained the warranty ran out 17,000 miles ago.
They called me back and said they would not provide any help. Guess what vehicle I don't purchase again?
