This is reference to two situation concerning Nissan recalls. In 2014 I took my car to sansone Nissan dealer on rt 1, NJ to take care of the airbag recall issue NHTSA ref#15V287000. My airbag light was not on when I took it to the dealer, after I came home a week later the airbag light came on. I don't think the dealer took care of the recall issue, if they did my airbag light would not be on. I would like Nissan to give authorization to the dealer to correct this problem. My second issue was on Jan 2016, I was driving to work, all of a sudden the car shut off on me, the brake lock up and all I could do was stair to the side of the road..I was lucky that there wasn't any oncoming traffic. I had to call the tow truck to have my car towed but before the tow truck came I tried starting the car again and it started. I was a few minutes from home, so I drove back home and I had my local mechanic picked it up and did a diagnosis on it. He said it was the crank position sensor, I purchased it and he installed it. The car started working a little better but my service engine soon warning light is still on. I did a little investigation and found out that there was a recall for engine and engine cooling recall #03V455000. I read it and found that the consequence on the recall is the exact same thing that happen to me. Again sansone dealer on rt. 1 in NJ is claiming that they took care of this issue but I was never told that this was a recall by Nissan. I wanted Nissan to correct this problem based on the fix under NHTSA ref# 03V455000. I've been taking car of all the maintenance on my car since I purchased it from Nissan but I feel that Nissan is responsible for these two issue, since it was defect in design on their end.
