I have had multiple ongoing problems with this vehicle.. I have had to bring it in four times for an inoperative horn. I would discover that horn was not working, I'd bring it in and it would function, then a couple of months would pass and again it would be inoperative. They finally replaced the harness, and it has been working for 2 straight months. This might not seem like a big deal, but it is a safety issue. I have brought it in twice for a broken ignition wire. The first time they were unable to locate the problem. The car was released to me and two days later I had it towed in because it was dead. I have had break issues, my breaks were apparently warped and not functioning properly.the latest thing to go was the fuel pump. I was driving on the highway, in the middle lane, during rush hour when the car just stopped. I had no where to go and was stuck in the middle. A frightening experience. I am now told that they don't know when my car will be fixed, nor are they willing to provide me with alternate transportation. Am I just supposed to acceptt that all of this goes wrong with my 2001 car" I bought a new car so I would have safe and reliable transportation. This has yet to happen. These problems have plagued me since the beginning and its only getting worse. I am at kelly Nissan with a major issue an average of once every 3 months. I do not believe this car is safe to operate.
