We have owned this car since 2004 and have paid for multiple repairs. As you can see, we do not put a great deal of miles on the car. Apparently there was a recall - that we were NOT notified of - for the fuel pump. A recall that would have fixed the problem for free - without leaving anyone stranded on the side of the road or without a vehicle for a week. It definitely would not have cost us almost $1000 - which we had to pay. We recently purchased a Versa as well. We had thought ourselves to be a Nissan family, but not if this is the way things work. Any other recalls that we probably paid for?
