Brought vehicle in for repair due to an issue with the steering. Apparently my vehicle has also been affected by the same rust/corrosion problem as previously recalled under recall 11V244000 and 11V244000 although these are not listed with my VIN. Vehicle is unsafe to drive.

Regarding recall R1107 for deteriorated chassis of engine compartment. On 4/2/14 premium Nissan of new rochelle attempted to remedy issue of vehicle that has not met safety standards by personal and professional inspection. Basically the engine compartment is held up with bondo, which is stated on dealership service order. The meshing and fiberglass patch will not hold up to the slightest of front end obstruction, causing sever damage and just driving it in the current condition is extremely hazardous to me, my wife and two young girls. I have documentation of the service order from premium and other licensed mechanics that have worked with this recall in the past, along with photos. I am requesting a buyback offer similar to other related cases. Thanks.
