Maxima 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 77,700 miles
Have a 2001 Nissan Maxima and the pin on the front lower control arm broke and had to be replaced at around 75,000 miles. There is a recall for this part, but my car was not eligible for some reason. This part, if defective, represents a serious safety concern and I am very suspicious as to the reasons why the recall did not apply to my vehicle's VIN. The loss of controll was extremely noticable and I am concerned about the other side breaking and causing a serious accident.
