Both front power window regulators failed at the exact same time on the exact same day. The car is a 2002 Nissan Sentra with only 55000 miles. I am the third person in my family to have this happen with their 2002 Nissan. I contacted Nissan and nothing was done to fix the problem, I was told that they couldnt help my situation because there was no recall on the part.

Nissan Sentra 2002 with less then 28000 ml has leaking engine head gasket and radiator and broken steering rack and pinion and steering power assist. Car was purchased new and never had an accident. Car is dangerous to drive - steering does not work. Nissan sold me a lemon car and refuses to repair it.
