I am in PA. Sorry, I forgot I posted basically the same exact question a while ago. Reason I am on here is I just cut away another stock exhaust clamp and used a stainless hose clamp to replace it. I NEVER HEAR OF ANYONE ELSE COMPLAINING ABOUT RATTLING AND RUSTING EXHAUST SYSTEMS (Ford, Honda, Chevy...

Exhaust heat shields

Is Nissan just "bad" at building good exhaust systems or do the heat shields, welds, and clamps on them rust off and rattle like the rest of the car manufactures? This is my third Nissan. I feel like I am always cutting off clamps or using stainless hose clamps to tighten rattling components of the ...

Ok, its no longer a sensor issue. Sensors all transmitting. When the mechanic reset all of the sensors, they showed 35psi and transmitting and the vehicle's computer accepted the program and the TPMS light turned off. The mechanic said the way the system works is the computer rakes a reading every 1...

Capt. 10k or more should be fine. I think its atrocious that the factories recommend 3k-5k changes for oil. That was 30 years ago when it was recommended with the crappy gas, crappy oil that broke down easily, and how open the engine was for dirt. New engines, new oils can go and go plus its less po...

You are in Cali too. I figured the salt brine and salt they put down for snow causes the rapid rusting but I guess its any kind of moisture eats the welds and bands. I am doing what I did with my other vehicles and thats either use stainless steel hose clamps or complete removal of the heat shield. ...

Should have bought the 4wd. Yo uwould have pulled right through it.

I have no idea why people buy SUV's without 4wd.

If you bought it for the size and gas milage get a minivan then.

Heat Shields?????

Is it just my luck or do the welds/straps on Nissan's heat shields suck?? We've had 3 Nissans, all different vehicles and generations and everyone had horrible heatshields. After 70k they begin to rust off, rattle, the straps fall apart, etc... My wife's Odyssey has 90k and I checked her's and they ...

Yep...

Don't use the "auto" climate control. I think that control blows.
