I purchased this car after reading as many reviews as I could. I called Nissan Canada, and they informed me that the previous owner addressed all the recalls (sensors, long bolts, etc.)
I was happy with the peppy engine, the handsome looks and spacious interior. I had the precat preventatively replaced with a Magnaflow. The mechanic showed me that the material inside was beginning to crack, so I got the problem before it caused any damage.
Afterwards, I address an exhaust leak in the front flex pipe. But the technician informed me that it was from an accident when the car was rear ended (exhaust system was pushed inwards)
At 148,000 km, I changed the battery after it wouldn't start on a really cold morning.
Today, at 151,000 km (94,000 miles) I sent the car in for brakes at all 4 corners including the outer tie rods.
All the work I've done is regular maintenance. The car is 8 years old, and I do a lot of driving downtown and in traffic, so I figured brakes and front end would take a beating.
I'm satisfied with the car, it does what I want it to do, and starts every morning when I need it to. It's spacious, and relatively good on fuel (considering city driving). I haven't had to put up with the dealer, I have my own mechanic who treats me well.
