VINALND, NEW JERSEY -- I bought a new 2003 Nissan Frontier. 3 years later, paint started to peel down to primer. Went back to dealer. I was over warranty, said it was my problem. Now the back half of truck is down to primer. Also the hood. I deal with team Nissan in Turnersville Nissan and Nissan Direct but my truck is still peeling. Nissan OK to buy from but not to take care of customer. We have two Nissan but never again. I was wondering if other people having problem with trucks with the blue paint. I have seen others but never got to speaks to them. They even blame acid rain for my problem.
I have a 2007 Nissan Frontier with 41,000 miles on it. At 39,000 miles, the fuel gauge started malfunctioning and the check engine light came on. When I fill up with gasoline, the fuel gauge remains at empty with the empty gas tank light on. Occasionally, the gauge kicks up but dies down again. On 9/9/09 I took the car to the Nissan dealership and they diagnosed the problem as fuel gauge sensor needs replacement. They wanted over $500 to fix the problem.
I have seen a lot of complains on the internet about this and so I called Nissan consumer affairs and they promised to look into a "goodwill" repair of the problem. However they called me today to say they will not pay for the part to be replaced. With this problem, I never know how much fuel I have left in the tank and I just keep filling it up every couple of days. I am afraid the gasoline will ran out when on the roadside and put me and my family in danger of an accident or burglary or worse.
I also have a 2003 Nissan Frontier electric blue with peeling paint. It just keeps on peeling. Contacted Nissan. They said they didn't have any other complaints on this. Now I'm finding out this is not true. They said it was out of warranty. I was told by someone at the dealership that most of the electric blue vehicles have this problem.
MCKINNEY, TEXAS -- I own a 2005 Nissan Frontier with melting headlights. I have called the Nissan customer service number who has directed me to the dealer. The dealer Nissan of Mckinney has stated the cause of melting headlights is normal wear due to the age. When going to the dealer and seeing the service director, he claims I place cardboard in front of the lights to cause them to melt. BS. I have been going back and forth and the dealer will not take care of a previous customer for a defective product.
DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM NISSAN OF MCKINNEY. THEY WILL NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT AND FEEL BLAMING THE CUSTOMER FOR THE CAUSE IS A EASY WAY OUT.
READING, PENNSYLVANIA -- I made the mistake of paying $10,000 for a used Nissan Frontier. It has a bad instrument cluster, the gauges and speedometer don't work. Nissan says they cannot fix it because they can no longer get the parts. They told me to search junkyards for parts. I did! I got several yards to run nationwide searches. They all told me the same thing. This part is a problem and they are sold out in the junkyards of the USA. My truck will not pass PA inspection. I am forced to junk a 1998 Nissan 4x4. It looks like it came off the showroom floor. It is spotless and worthless. I may have to send it to the junkyard!!!
VINELAND, NEW JERSEY -- Defective paint on 2003 Frontier. Took it to dealer, told never seen anything like this. Contact Nissan, told out warranty, not their problem. But told take to Team Nissan in Vineland NJ to check. The manager told me one and another to service rep. After 6 months of back and forth, Nissan not responsible. Said out warranty and that I cause the problem. Not a good company to deal with. They lie. I own 2 Nissans. By next year, I will have none.
