Ditto on the timing chain issue. Bought the Nissan new in 2004, always maintained oil changes and checkups, but have had major issues annually. I started hearing a rattle a few weeks back that got progressively worse. Took it to a local mechanic. He said he would love the chance to replace the timing chain, because it would be a week's worth of work for his mechanics, but he said it would be in my best interest to drive the car til the engine dies, then just replace the whole engine. Said that there was no telling what other problems he might find with valves or whatever once he opened up the engine, so it wouldn't be in my best interest to fix it.
The car is comfortable to sit in. That's it on the good. It has had numerous problems over its six years in existence.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
