Postby 00void » Tue Jan 06, 2009 8:57 am

just an FYI...

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/recallsearch.cfm search for 08V690000. i couldn't create a direct link, sorry.

NISSAN IS RECALLING 242,720 MY 2005-2009 PATHFINDER, FRONTIER AND XTERRA VEHICLES ORIGINALLY SOLD IN OR CURRENTLY REGISTERED IN THE STATES OF CONNECTICUT, DELAWARE, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, IOWA, MAINE, MARYLAND, MASSACHUSETTS, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEW HAMPSHIRE, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, VERMONT, WEST VIRGINIA, WISCONSIN, AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. IN THOSE AREAS OF THE COUNTRY WHICH USE HEAVY CONCENTRATIONS OF ROAD SALT IN THE WINTER, A MIXTURE OF SNOW/WATER AND SALT CAN ENTER INTO THE FRONT CRASH ZONE SENSOR (CZS) HOUSING. IF THIS OCCURS, THE CZS MAY INTERNALLY RUST RESULTING IN A SIGNAL INTERRUPTION. IF THIS HAPPENS, THE RED AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT WILL ILLUMINATE TO ALERT THE VEHICLE OPERATOR.

Consequence:
THIS ISSUE COULD RESULT IN THE NON-DEPLOYMENT OF THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER FRONT AIR BAGS IN A CRASH, INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT CZS WITH A REDESIGNED SENSOR. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS IN THE OTHER STATES WILL RECEIVE EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE FOR THE SENSOR TO 10 YEARS.

They should do it to all cars no matter where you lived. What if you go during a snow season and get it, just becuase you are not from there you are out of luck.

WTF is the definition of "heavy concentrations of road salt?" They use salt, and only salt, here in Salt Lake City (go figure). Yet the Nissan wiz who hashed out the recall obviously didn't get his info right. It is just plain stupid to exclude recall/warranty coverage based on the State in which one lives.

Is where I live when they put down so much salt its more dangerous than the snow! That is unfair though all of them should be covered regardless! If you bought it used you don't know what state it came from usally!

Case in point (for including Utah as one of the Salt States):

Heavy snowfall has cities running short on road salt
Many cities have exhausted their budgets for ice-melting
By Rosemary Winters

The Salt Lake Tribune

Residents of many neighborhood streets in West Valley City will have to wait on the sun to thaw any ice that builds up on their roadways after crews plow.

Slammed by heavy snow storms and below-freezing temperatures, West Valley City is one of several Utah burgs that have blown through their budgets for road salt -- and winter's a long way from over.

West Valley City has spent its allotted $105,000 to buy 5,500 tons of salt and has 2,000 tons left in storage. But more will be needed -- and the price for salt has climbed $2.50 per ton from last winter -- said Phil Markham, the city's operations director. A ton of salt costs between $18 and $30.

Snow plow drivers, Markham said, have been asked to be "more judicious," with the application of salt: All streets are to be plowed, but only main thoroughfares, intersections and roads on slopes or in school zones will get salt.

"We will make sure the roads are safe and drivable," he said. "We're crossing our fingers that we're not going to have a whole 'nother month of storms like we just had."

In Provo, it's routine to let ice melt naturally on residential streets, but still the city has spent its budget of $35,000 for salt, said Public Services Manager Scott Peppler. He expects the city to spend $60,000 by the time winter is over -- the same amount Provo spent during last year's wet winter.

Colder temperatures, Peppler noted, require more salt.

"Trying to melt snow at 20 degrees [Fahrenheit] takes four times as much salt as it does at 30 degrees."

Storms also have eaten up the salt budgets in Sandy, West Jordan, Murray and Cedar City. Salt Lake City has used only one-third of its budget, and Ogden has 40 percent remaining. But both those cities have hefty purses: $250,000 or more.

The Utah Department of Transportation, which oversees the state's highways and freeways, dwarves the cities' spending. Every time the snow flies, the state drops roughly $1 million in labor, fuel, salt and other costs for snow removal.

UDOT has a budget of $26 million for snow removal this winter. About $6.5 million of that will be spent on salt, up from $5 million last winter because of increased prices, said agency spokesman Adan Carrillo.

Even that's a bargain, he said. Other states that don't have homegrown salt mines pay much more.

get this...

my local dealer (North Dakota) said that they can't even look at it for 2.5 weeks and that even then they will just do an inspection and that, "i haven't had to replace any of them yet... we just check 'em."

meanwhile i drive about 180-300 miles per day or about 1200 miles per week for work on nothing more than snow/salt covered roads/highways.

WTF :evil:

I received a letter from Nissan over the weekend basically saying that I was now covered for this. I'm assuming they changed the recall to include all states, but I'm just guessing at this point. Came with a sticker to put on the warranty booklet.

It just took this long for Nissan to release the parts. from what I understand it is law for them to release the info when it is deemed a safety issue. for when they release the parts it is up to the manufacture.
