April 9,2009 Thanks For Talking With Me About My Issue. Re: Maine’s Express And Implied Warranty Laws: As We Discussed Please Find Enclosed Maine Law That Basically Extended Any Express Warranty From A Car Dealer Based On The Enclosed Criteria. Since The nissan xterra Has A 6 Year Power Train Warranty I Have The Right To Assert That The Defective Part, Which Is A Safety Hazard For Me And Family, Should Have Lasted Well Beyond 4 1/2 Years Or 46,000 Miles On The Car. I Am Requesting That You Authorized Berlin City nissan To Repair This Part (number: 497109z400) Which Can Only Be Purchased Through The Dealer. This Part Simply Was Defective And Faulty And Was Not In Any Way Abused Pursuant To Maine Law. The Part Clearly Did Not Meet The Maine Warranty Law Of Fit For Ordinary Purposes In Fact The Dealer Told My Wife And Me They Very Rarely If Ever See This Part Come In For Repair. In Summary, I Request That nissan Doe The Right Thing And Authorized A Full Payment Of The Above Mention Part Along With The $96.50 Cents Which I Have Already Paid Berlin City To Diagnose Of The Problem With Part Number: 497109z400. Thanks For Your Assistance Taking Care Of This Matter To Avoid A Formal Compliant To Maine Attorney General’s Office.

First -my Steering Was Getting Hard – I Asked A Tech At nissan What Possibly Could Be The Problem. They Suggested Change The Steering Fluid First. I Did And Then I Learned There Was A Recall – I Would Like A Reimbursement Of $96.25 For The Steering Power Fluid Flush That I Did Not Need. I Was Never Notified And Found Out By Calling nissan Because The Problem Was Still Happening. I Took The Suv Into nissan Service To Do The Recall Repair – It Was Done However, I Still Had A Hard Steering Problem. They Looked At It Again And They Now Said I Needed A Gear Box Which I Recorded Earilier With You In A Previous Complaint . If I Do In Fact Need A Gear Box I Feel That It Got Defective Due To The Recall – This Is Over A $2,000 Repair. A Very Short Time After My Car Left The Service Department (after They Said I May Need A Gear Box) I Almost Had A Very Bad Car Accident – My Front Tires And Steering Wheel Began To Shake And The Wheel Felt Like It Was Coming Off – I Towed The Suv To nissan Service And I Am Now Told That The Tie Rod Assembly Needs To Be Replaced At A Cost Of Over $700.00. Why Did They Not See The Problem The Week Before? I Want To Be Reimbursed For $96.25 Steering Power Flush, Towing Charge Of $120.00 And The Tie Rod Assembly Replacement Approx. $800.00 And I Want This Investigated. Do I Really Need A Gear Box? I Could Have Gotten Into A Very Bad Accident If That Wheel To Fly Off. Please Look Into This Problem. Thank You – nissan xterra 2004 Your Department And nissan Needs To Look Into This Problem – I Could Have Died. Does It Have Anything To Do With The 4 Wheel Drive? *tr

Vehicle Has Tight Steering. Barely Able To Turn Wheel While Not Moving. Independent Garage Checked Steering, Found Corrosion In Steering Linkage And Notified Me Of Recall. When Contacted nissan Dealer Claims That Recall Does Not Cover This Vehicle. Called nissan Customer Service Number Who Also Denied The Recall. Vehicle Is Within The Recall Dates And Was Manufactured At Smyrna, Tn Plant. Representative Could Not Say Why This Vehicle Was Not Included. Wanted Me To Take To Dealer And Pay To Have Repaired. Either nissan Is Not Honoring The Commitment To The Recall Or The Recall Needs To Be Expanded To Include All Of The Effected Vehicles. *tr
