Just sent Nissan an email about their troublesome precats
I just sent this email to Nissan USA hoping to get some help fixing my precat problem. If your unaware of my problem, please look in my thread history (P0420 & P0430 codes) to find it , it may be of some help to you someday. Honestly I dont expect Nissan to even reply but I couldnt just sit by and say nothing.
Hi my name is Rick Harrill and I have an 05 Altima SE. My car currently has just passed 100,000 miles. I have religously kept my car maintained and in pristine condition.
With that said, for the last two yrs I have had repeated problems with the car, some of which were normal repairs and some were not in my opinion. My current issues are SES codes that require precat repacement. I have done ALOT of research over the last week and it seems that this has been a huge problem for many Altima owners and Nissan. Im am hoping that my car is on the list of cars given an extended warranty due to this reoccuring issue. I also read there were recalls issued for some Altima models as well.
If you(Nissan) would have informed all the buyers prior to their purchase that the car would require expensive emmision parts to be replaced shortly after the warranty ended, how many of those folks would have chosen a Nissan.
I have been a loyal Nissan customer all of my driving life. I had a '83 Datsun 200sx for 6yrs, a '91 Hardbody truck for 15yrs and my Altima for nearly 6yrs now. There are currently 6 Nissans in my immediate family right now. We all love your products and deserve to be treated like the repeat and loyal customers we are. I hope to be hearing from one of your staff members very soon regarding whats been mentioned so far.
I am a husband and father of 2 and honestly I cant afford to spend $1000+ on something I feel should last the life of the car.
Nissan cant deny the problems they have had out of these precat systems, and many cases even resulted in engine replacements. I'm not exactly sure what Nissans plans are for the future but I hope it will include me as a customer.
Thank you for your time and please get back to me as soon as you can, I really need to get this problem fixed and I'm hoping you can help me.
