1995 Nissan Hardbody Pickup XE 2.0 from North America
All owners of a Nissan Pickup with rust problems, whether it be the frame rusted out like us, rusted out brake lines as you're going down the road like us, rusted out gas tank that starts spewing gas going down the road like us, etc.
We have contacted Nissan about this rust problem as have many other to no avail. Forget class action suits, we have contacted the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Saftey Administration) and the ODI (Office of Defects Investigation). If enough of us file a safety complaint and this organization can find a pattern, they can force Nissan to issue a recall.
Please contact us a firstname.lastname@example.org for further info. We are keeping track of the number of people willing to fight. So far there are 1 1993 complaint, 10 1994 complaints, 19 1995 complaints and 1 1997 complaint. Not many, but once someone calls Nissan and gets nowhere, they don't know what else to do. This is it. If you contact me, I will explain what we are fighting for since I am limited on what we are allowed to say on the message board, and let's fight for our trucks!!!
Don't look underneath - rust everywhere.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Rusting frames problem is not confined to the Nissan pick-up trucks. I have a 1987 Dodge pick-up. And have taken care of it for many years. The last two years the frame, body, brake lines, and anything the salt brine Ohio uses on the roads hit.
Where parts of the truck were shielded, like under the spare tire there was no rust. My friend had a Ford truck. After the winter he parked it for the summer. It had new shocks, brake lines etc. When he went to use for hunting in the fall, the shocks were rusted away and the fuel and brake lines were rusted. This brine hit my 98 Sunfire, but where I smeared the brake lines with grease, there was no rust.
The liquid brine melts ice faster, but eats the cars away.
This may be our problem. Until that time, Ron Myers.
