A great car from a disappointing corporation
The air flow meter failed at ~60000km / 4 years old causing a severe loss of power. The local Nissan dealership had experienced the same problem on 3 other vehicles of this model. He considered it a fairly common problem although Nissan corporate disagreed. The local dealer said he could replace it for A$1150 other dealerships quoted A$1395. My local turbo diesel mechanic could source and replace the part (Bosch) for A$520.
The car has been great otherwise - very comfortable and generally reliable.
I'm very disappointed with Nissan for not accepting this as a design fault and fixing it without an argument.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
