2015 Nissan Frontier Owner Comments

problem #2

Child seat latch restraint system design is faulty for crew cab models. The anti tilt attachment point is low behind the seatback on the Nissan Frontier crew cab. To attach the strap you must tilt the seatback forward. You cannot adequately tighten the strap on most car seats, since attempting to do so causes the seatback to return to the upright position and you cannot completely tighten the strap before having to remove your hand. If the excess strap is long enough, the child seat becomes permanently mounted, because, then, you cannot tilt the seatback forward to access the strap tension-release mechanism.

Nissan has failed to do an inline laser radar inspection, or proper inspections on some assembly of its trucks. I purchased a defective Frontier king cab S automatic and Nissan has not yet agreed to take it back. The truck bed or cab is off by 9mm or more. Bolts and welds were not properly aligned during assembly and nor were checked for quality and consistency after assembly and then sold to consumers with faults as there are several of these trucks out there with this defect. I found 2 at another dealer which were free from this defect. That is the vehicle I wanted. While driving down the freeway at 60mpg or less, there is a shake or imbalance in the steering, and needs constant adjustment. It seems to veer off to the right when the steering wheel is in a straight position.this could be caused by the whole truck being out of alignment or even just the truck bed. After reporting it to Nissan, they told me to take it to the service shop and have it documented. It was reported to me that in their database this crooked bed has come up and they attempted to but were unable to repair it.I was told disassembling the body of a vehicle is not only dangerous but is damaging, so they told me this is how Nissan makes them, nothing they can do. But since then I found some without flaws, so what he said is not true. My truck's driver side has a large gap between the back of the cab and the truck bed 9mm off. The cab door on my truck leaked water into the seat belt chamber, soaking and staining the seat belt, and also has a defective driver's seat which has a one inch gap between the chair back and seat cushion. This is not normal on other exact models I looked at and photographed. This is not the way the engineers designed this model of trucks. I was told that the driver seat defect also is simply how Nissan designed it another lie. Rust is also an issue.
