Up until yesterday, Sunday, May 2, 2010, I've not had really any issues. However, went to run an errand and the car started fine when I first left my house, and when I went to run my quick errand and got back in my car, it took about 5 times before the car would turn over and start.
From that point, I drove it to Jiffy Lube to get my oil changed, and when it came time for them to move my car out of the bay, they couldn't get it to start. Since they were getting ready to close for the evening, I had to leave my car there inside the Jiffy Lube.
Got a rental car this morning and drove back to Jiffy Lube, and they told me the mechanics at the gas station next door did good work. When they went to see if my car would even start, it did catch that time. The mechanics across the street were able to drive it over to their shop.
Just got a call from the lead mechanic, and he said he checked everything over and that the car appeared to be fine. However, he said that he did some research and found that there is a recall for the same year of car as mine (2003), and that it has to do with the crankshaft positioning sensor. I called Nissan just a few minutes ago, and they probably can't get to my car until tomorrow, but in the meantime I'm renting a car. I asked if they reimburse for car rentals, even though my car is outside the warranty period, and he said they don't. I asked him why they don't make exceptions when more than likely my car problem is due to the same thing that everyone else is having problems with, and he said that bottom line, there is no rental reimbursement.
So, will have to drive my car (hopefully it will start) and pick it up from the mechanic, and drive it to Nissan and pay for another day's rental. Plus I'll have to pay for a taxi from Nissan to where my rental is, which is a bummer. They said they could give me a ride if I were within a 5-mile radius, but I'm about 10 miles from the dealership. To me, they should make the extra effort to drive me, since I'm sure that my car problems are due to the problem that's already under warranty.
I think that if this is going to be an on-going problem, we should all think about a class-action lawsuit.
