Nice. It's a "voluntary recall" which at least makes me feel better about not going in right away.

Ford still sends me recall notices for 2 different vehicles we no longer own (and haven't owned for at least 4 years).

Does their "recall notices" come with some advertisement? "0.0% APR...."

I'm glad this was reposted.

I missed the recall by 500 units.

I agree with you there. There is no way i'm taking my car in to Nissan for this job. They couldn't even do the "fuel door won't release" TSB without bending my door all out of whack.[/QUOTE]

I'm with you here - Until I detect a leak while filling my tank or until I get the malfunction light on, I'll be be passing on this one...

I'm worried guys. I have never been able to fill up my tank with more than 13-13.5 gallons max. I usually get about 300-325 miles a tank. I took my car to the dealership to see if I coud get my headlights changed because they have fogging inside and the service guy told me about the recall. I don't think I could trust the guys at the dealership to do that job. Do you think I should take the car in? The mileage and filling thing isn't a big deal, but it could be an underlying issue.

And that brings up a suggestion... I have been wondering since I posted this, why don't you moderators & admin folks create a sticky or a section on this forum specifically for Nissan recalls? It would certainly seem in the best interest of your readers and their safety!

no this is likely an unrelated issue as there is a TSB out for this issue. however if you start smelling gasoline in your cabin or see some leaking onto the ground then I'd take it in right away.

I wonder if alignment is necessary after the job.
They have to take out the whole rear wheel assembly to do it.
I would guess it needs alignment!?
It is not mentioned in the work instruction.

No but it will probably take your dealer 6 months to get the parts. In fact the name of my service manager is Joe Backorder Wilson.

+1.......very well said btw.
i've said it before and i'll say it again:" if it ain't broke...don't fix it."
"remember the old saying...."the operation was a success...but the patient died".

i acutally had the recall just done. Acutally it was done incidently when they were fixing my clutch failure. It them a total of 5 days to get the parts and fix both my clutch and the Recall (fuel pump). i didnt even know they did the recall until i picked up my car... guess i lucked out on this one.

really not a matter of "if it ain't broke don't fix it" because this could be serious. anyone remember the ford recall on their tires and how many people got killed in rollovers before they finally decided to do something. gotta give nissan a little credit here regarding safety...and looks like a lot of work to fix it so that can't be cheap. don't get me wrong...this really sucks for all owners effected by this and i totally understand the concerns about having the dealer practically tearing half your car apart.
