On 12/26/2015 at 4am my 2012 Nissan Rogue caught on fire in my carport. My daughter and I could have died had it not been for my 2 golden retrievers alerting us. I later found out that I wasn't notified of a open recall on 1/26/2015 including my VIN for the electrical system, in which it could short and cause a vehicle fire. The vehicle was deemed totaled by my insurance company and over $10,000 worth of damage sustained to my home. Nissan began their investigation on 1/20/2016 and on 2/12/2016 they contacted me via fedex that the have no financial responsibility for this incident. I am totally baffled by this because vehicle fire is consequence of the electrical problem on my VIN. And yes I have insurance on both my home and vehicle, but there is $500 deductible on my home. And there is a balance after my insurance paid off what the vehicle is worth at the time of the fire. And I had to put money down money to buy a new vehicle. So I'm left with all of the financial responsibilty and Nissan has none. I am livid!!!

1. Nissan refuses to take any responsibility for using dunlop 7000A/S 225/55/18 tires on this vehicle which are dangerous in any condition besides dry road conditions these tires are inherently defective also filed complaint with Goodyear tire which refuses to acknowledge any issues with this tire. 2. the traffic feature of the navigation system does not work. After 20 hours on the phone with siriusxm they advised me this is a Nissan issue. Nissan also refuses to take any action. 3. the radio turns on and off or the source of the media changes when you blow the horn also Nissan has no solution or fix for this problem.

I received a recall notice from Nissan : NHTSA recall 15V-032 the recall letter said on certain vehicles snow/water and salt carried onto the driver side floor area can seep into the carper near the harness connector area and eventually cause and electric short to occur. This short may lead to connector damage, possibly causing a fire. On Thursday March 26 I took my vehicle to Nissan of garden city where they inspected my kick panel wire harness for damage. My vehicle was affected by this recall and fixed.

While traveling down the road entering the freeway the vehicles power steering stopped working rendering the vehicle no control. After nearly getting hit we were able to slow the vehicle down on the freeway and push it off of the road. The vehicle was not driveable and was towed to a dealership where it was learned that the power steering needed replaced for $1500 dollars out of the warranty.
