Oil consumption very high, engine seized without any warning or dashboard warning light.on highway engine stalled and burned some ruber hoses etc..car inoperabble.Nissan stated it was my problem due to miles on car were high..I paid $7,000 in Canadian money for repair that seems to be a defect..I am angry at Nissan for saying it was my problem...with no warning lights or other warning, I do not feel this is normal...
