The contact owns a 2004 Nissan Quest. The contact stated that the vehicle's side electrical sliding door opens and closes automatically. The doors on the vehicle will also occasionally fail to open.

The vehicle has been taken to the dealer approximately six times and the dealer changed the sensors and readjusted the doors. The door continues to not work properly. The vehicle is part of recall # 04V186000 (latches/locks/linkages:doors:latch), but the failure persists. The current mileage is 70,000 and failure mileage was 42,000.

- the contact owns a 2004 Nissan Quest with an odometer reading of 38,000 miles. The contact stated that the controls on the instrument panel were unsafe because they were hard to use while driving. When the contact would try to use the defroster it was difficult because of the location on the dashboard and caused a distraction while driving. She had to roll down the windows until she came to a stop to turn on the defroster. Also, the speedometer which was located on the center of the dashboard made it difficult to see. The driver stated that the only thing that was located in the dashboard with all the controls in the center was a storage compartment which was a dangerous design flaw. Nissan has since fixed the problem with the newer models. The contact felt that the recall solution for the middle seat latch was a bad solution because they only used four plastic pegs and a piece of cloth. The current mileage was 38,000. The consumer feels that the older designs she be recalled because it is too difficult to operate safely while driving. Update 4/25/07

Dublin Nissan service department will not repair a recall issue on my vehicle. This Nissan dealer was to comply with a recall notice to remove my front passenger seat and ship it to a facility which would modify the occupant detection system and then return the seat. This was to be a free service. Because the vehicle was installed with after-market leather, to complete the recall service, the after-market leather needs to be replaced with standard leather but dublin Nissan service refuses to comply with the recall. This makes my vehicle unsafe to drive.

I received a recall notice on my 2004 Nissan Quest. The recall was for problems with the operation of the 2nd and 3rd row seats of the miniwan. Porter Nissan the dealer that I brought the car from has made it very difficult to schedule and appointment. The will not schedule the work on the weekends and they expect me to take up to three hours out of my workday to wait until they finish the repairs on my car. The hours that they have are not convenient for a person who works from 9-5 and they have refused to give me a loaner car.

NHTSA campaign number: 05V474 1. sliding 2nd row seat forward. 2. pinch point near chair handle crushed the tip of my 3rd finger 3. Nissan ignored my concerns and told me it was my fault. They were put on notice in December 2003. They also sent their engineer out of Chicago to inspect the problem. They stated no defect existed and no correction was needed. Nissan's file number on my complaint is: 439 2014 it is interesting to note Nissan's planned recall is 1 day after the statute of limitations for my injury and the 1st reported injury you have on file for the same date which occurred in plantation, fl. I recent found out about the recall for reasons other than the injury.
