On June 30 my Nissan Frontier broke down. I had it towed to the webster Nissan office. I spoke with brian at Nissan on July 1st and he told me that my truck would either be fixed on July 7/3 or 7/8. the part that caused the issue is safety recall from 2003 that is an issue with fuel sensor in the gas tank. I contacted 1-800-nissan1 on 7/3 in search of a loaner car until they could get my truck fixed. Ginger at 1-800-nissan1 opened a ticket and told me some one would contact after the holiday weekend. I spoke catherine the region representative for Nissan on 7/7 and she said that Nissan will not provide a loaner car because my is off warranty. I explained to her the reason my truck broke down was because safety recall part that Nissan was responsible for. She said again Nissan will not provide me car. After I spoke with catherine : on 7/7 brian informed me the parts they needed are on back order and it could take ninety days to get the part. I contacted 1-800-nissan1 again and told them about the back order on the parts. They had catherine contact me 7/8 and she message at home that they will try to get the part soon. I called catherine back on 7/8 and ask to call me back. Catherine called me 7/9/08 and told me Nissan still would not provide me a loaner car even though it's Nissan's fault. She said if obtain a lawyer she make it harder for the dealership to get the part to fix my truck.

My 2002 Nissan pickup truck has some serious gas pedal issues..... the gas pedal is to close to the brake and frequently when you step on the brake you inadverntly are stepping on the gas pedal at the sametime. This has happened on several occasions.
