Wonderful...I gotta make yet another trip to the service department. God forbid car companies stop cutting corners at every possible step. I mean c'mon...do it right the first time.

Someone made a post about this a couple months back. If I remember correctly their post said recalls would not start until early '06. I have not received an official letter from Nissan either.

At least they are doing something about it. I'll have my 22,500 mile check up within a couple months, so hopefully I get the letter before that. What's cool is they keep making my '03 more like an '06 and I don't pay a dime:-) All I need is the head and tail lights to complete the work!

What about an '05 with an '04 build date. Would the recall apply to it.

"recalling 2006 IS 250 because the accelerator pedal sticks on a plastic pad in the carpet."


You'd be driving down the freeway in the traffic and then gun it to cut into the next lane thinking you'll let go off the gas to adapt to the speed of the traffic, but then you get a surprise when you let go off the gas and the car keeps charging at full throttle . I think you would be a bit upset

When you are dealing with any mass produced product that contains thousands of moving and non-moving parts, that are made by numerous manufacturer around the world, problems will occur. The scale and seriousness is the only question. I remember the stories of the MKIV golf's and jetta's that had air bags that would randomly deploy for no reason. Some occured after hitting a pothole, while others happened while driving down the highway for no reason... There were numerous reports of this but VW wouldn't accept that there was a problem, and in the cases where the sudden deployment caused a wreck, VW would refuse to fix the car... On the same cars they had problems with the seat heaters burning people and starting fires as well.

anytime you want you can go to the service writer and have them run the vin. any open recalls will show up and you can get them taken care of.

Default fuel hose recall question

A question for you Z car experts. Will the fuel tank need to be removed to replace the fuel filler hose. I located the rubber hose section today while looking under the wheel well area, but could not tell if it could be replaced without removing the tank. Checking in the service manual shows many steps to remove the tank and some of them include items I would rather my dealer would not do. I was hoping someone could shead some light.

Fuel hose recall? Do you have a TSB number for this? First I've heard of it.
