Re: Nissan & the Dealer come good re faulty Exhaust Manifold/Cat.converter


Hi Dan,

If you want to take it further, the first thing you need to check is the VIN Number against the affected xtrails by the recall. Not all of them were affected by the O2 Sensor Boss Breakage recall. If your VIN is within that range, call Nissan Australia Head-Office in Melbourne and request the recall history for this car as the second owner.

If Nissan Australia confirms that a recall notice was sent to the first owner but he never bothered to do it, your chances of getting something out of Nissan are next to zero!

We always advise buyers of second hand xtrails to look at the recall history of the car before committing to the purchase and that is why it is very important to keep all recall notices handy should you even decide to sell the car.

I know it is a bit late to say this, but there were other options to fix your problem had you mentioned this earlier here on the forum, one of which would have been to get a second hand manifold including the cat converter from the wreckers for about $280 max.

In any case I hope your problem has been solved and you can start enjoying the exy.

Re:


Seven years have passed after the O2 sensor boss recall has been done on my car (according to Nissan records).. and now there is a leaking crack between this very boss and the manifold, i.e., the very issue. (see also my post here [sign in to see URL]#post2060104

The dealer's initial response is that it's my problem. However I reckon all the arguments put forward in the post earlier still hold, this still be design flaw on a part that should last the lifetime of the car and which has only been touched by the Nissan plant and the dealer when doing the recall inspection...

Anyone for a view on this, or a post 2006 - experience with Nissan handling this claim? Worth the fight?

cheers, Felix

Not worth the headache mate, just go to any muffler shop and pay $50 bucks or so to have it welded.

Re:


Hi all,

Ive just bought a 04 TI Exy and seems I have this problem too.
I guess it`s too late to get Nissan to fix for free ? I tried all the links to recall pages etc, and none work.

Cheers.

Yes Ross, it's too late for Nissan to fix the recall now, as it does expire after a certain period of time. It doesn't hurt to ask your local dealer anyway.

Try ]THIS recall thread.
