2010 Nissan Cube Owner Comments

Electronic steering column lock (escl) was malfunctioning, as diagnosed by a Nissan dealer. The car was parked at my job and would not start. The brake pedal was pressed but was locked as well as the steering wheel in locked position. A solid orange key icon on the dash had started flashing. The car was towed to Nissan. This is the same issue that the 2009 Cubes were recalled for. It is the same part and same issue with my 2010 Cube. Paying $1000 for an issue that Nissan is already aware of is ridiculous. Nissan should be held accountable for every model affected by this problem, and not just the 2009S.

There is a known issue with the Nissan electronic steering column lock used on cars manufactured in model years 2009-2010. The lock engages and makes cars with push-button ignitions impossible to start. There is a warranty extension for the 2009-2010 Altima and maxima, but no other models are covered, even though other models use the same part and experience the same problem. Nissan should be responsible for the repair of this part because it is caused by abuse or misuse, but simply mechanical/electrical failure. There are many resources online (facebook, youtube, web forums) where people driving models other than Altima and maxima experience the exact same problem, yet Altima and maxima owners get warranty extensions and everyone else gets saddled with a $1000 repair bill. Nissan should be held accountable for every model affected by this problem, not just two models.
