problem #1

Jan 302003

Xterra 4WD

  • miles
While driving 55mph, my rear axle broke causing the wheel to fly off, loss of control, and obvious damage to the car. I later found out that there was a ABS recall for this identical problem, but I was never informed of the recall. After 4 weeks, I have been told the Nissan will cover the repair of the vehicle, but that is all. I would like to know if there is anything else I can or should pursue for negligence on behalf of the corporation and the dealer. I was extremely fortunate that myself and my 2 year old were not seriously injured or killed in this accident, and feel someone should be held acountable.
