Disappointment to an Ex Nissan buyer


Found an old screwdriver rolling around between the panels of the driver's door. Initially dealer told me it was something behind the back seat. On prompting further inspection the screwdriver was found.

Fuel consumption very high. 7km/L.

Evaporated water from the A/C leaking into the vehicle footwell. Dealer told me it is due to leaves blocking the outlet pipe. Charged me R700.00 ($100.00) How do leaves get in there? Will I be paying R700.00 Pm to clear leaves?

Window winder on the driver's side broke.

General Comments:

Nissan should take more care when building their cars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
