Re: Fuel Filler Tube Rust Recall


Hi Guys,

Just received a call from the dealer which I was expecting but didn't want to get.

My Monday 5/6 appointment has been cancelled due to lack of parts and everyone else who had his exy booked at Rockdale Nissan would soon receive the same call.

Nissan Australia advised the dealer that no more fuel filler tubes are available at the central warehouse and they have been ordered from Japan.

They asked me to call again in 2 weeks time.

When I asked who's responsible for any damage or loss that may happen in the meantime, the answer was "Nissan Australia" and they told me I'm covered as my booking (and cancellation) is recorded on the system (dealer system that is)

It makes me wonder what sort of poor planning this is on behalf of Nissan Australia when they knew about this recall since March '06 and also had an idea about the number of affected xtrails, yet failed to stock-up on parts during this period before announcing it formally to the public!

Re: when you asked who'd be responsible for any damages from the cancelled booking...

Wouldn't Nissan still be responsible even if you hadn't booked it in and a problem occurred?

Even if it went as far as court/claims tribunal, you could argue that Nissan had cancelled alot of other bookings due to lack of stock...

Not that I think many people would likely get any problems anyway...

I guess so, but the case would be stronger if you have the booking and/or cancellation on record!

In all honesty the dealer did mention that had Nissan felt that it was such a serious problem, they would have advised owners NOT to drive the car until the recall inspection is carried-out.

But most importantly, did you get the recall sticker?



Yes, I got a sticker this time, but not for the first two recalls by the same dealer.
However, I must admit that this does not worry me all that much, so long as I know the work was done!

Yes of course, however it'll be very important to the next person buying your car (if you plan to sell it at some stage that is)

Re: Fuel Filler Tube Rust Recall


Well looks like this shortage of stock is effecting every dealer in the country, emoticon

I had my exy booked in this morning, and dropped it off, only to be told that: "Sorry didn't we call you? We are all out of stock and the next order for these parts won't be in for at least a month."

As my dealer explained this recall initially was for an inspection only. Part way through the recall process Nissan changed their mind and decided to replace the affected part instead. Hence the reason why there is a shortage of parts now.

For those of you that have their exy booked in for this recall, I advise you call your dealer the day prior to confirm they have the necessary parts.

Re: Fuel Filler Tube Rust Recall


My booking was cancelled by the dealership today as well.
I didn't get another date, I have to call them back in about 2 weeks to check their availability!?? emoticon
It may initially have been just a check up and then they decided to change the whole thing but you'd expect from a Global company to order parts first before doing mass recall. This is what I said to one of managers at Nissan and he said "well Australia is relatively medium sized market so........." and he left it at that, probabely didn't know what else to say.
40,000 Units on the road in Oz and this is how they are going about rectifying this problem.

Re: Fuel Filler Tube Rust Recall


 With all this talk about the 'recall' I checked my exy and the VIN falls within the recall range. Due to receiving no letter yet from Nissan, I contacted my local dealer to enquire. I was told that the recall cannot be done without the letter indicating that it is a requirement. I tried explaining that my VIN is within this listed range, but the response was not to worry and it is not a real issue anyway, just a preventative measure.

 Not sure about you guys, but the risk of fuel vapours leaking into the cabin or worse still, the car EXPLODING is a REAL concern. Sorry Nissan.
 
 Anyone out there skillful enough to scan their recall notice and add my details to it (LOL).

 I can see another fax being sent to Melbourne soon.

 Has anyone else found that they have not received a notice, although their cars VIN is within the recall specs.

Brett,

It is possible that Nissan have decided to halt sending letters for the time being after realising they're short on parts. They have caused enough chaos already when the sent all these letters in one go and forgot to check their stock.

So, if you believe that your exy is within the affected range, wait until the end of June (expected availability of the part in question) OR call Head Office and ask about the letter. They might not have your details showing correctly on their system and that is another good reason to call them direct and ensure you will get the letter.
