2008 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 140,000 miles


I have a 2008 Nissan Frontier and the gas vent control valve has failed where the back wash flap at the top of the gas tank has fallen into the gas tank neck preventing me from being able to put gas into the gas tank. I called Nissan headquarters and they transferred me to a local dealer. The service manager there said I would be charged $150 just for them to look at the vehicle. I think this is outrages because I read on your government site that this is a common problem on more Nissan models too. This should be a recall item. Respectfully, michael H.

Nissan acknowledged that the fuel gauge sending unit in model years 2004-08 was faulty, causing the unit to send faulty information on fuel levels and causing the check engine light to come on. They offered an extended warranty to repair the problem, but when I contacted them, they said my VIN# wasn't covered - even though it is the year model affected with the problem. No such restriction on VIN# S is presented on their websites. It is only after I tried to get the problem repaired that they denied covering it, even though it is a known defect. I appealed all the way to corporate and got nowhere. I believe they are simply trying to Dodge paying for a repair that is their own manufacturing fault.
