I’m sure you’ve seen this in some of our coverage of the new 2013 nissan pathfinder. We’ve seen the bad, the broken, the broken down. The problem is that there are some things that are out of control. Let’s take a look at just what is happening, and what we can do to keep ourselves from doing a number of things.
The first problem is the ignition, or rather the computer chip that controls it. Nissan claims the new pathfinder is capable of taking out the ignition in 1.5 seconds, but this is not a sure thing. The first person to come close to the speed of the ignition would be the last person to stop. The second problem is the airbags, or rather the gas pedals that are used to make sure your car is still on the road.
In order to prevent the airbags from exploding, the pathfinder uses a fuel pressure sensor that measures how much gas is in the tank. If the sensor senses too much gas, it turns off the gas pedal. If the sensor doesn’t sense enough, it gives you a warning, usually by sounding an alarm. Both the mechanic who measures the gas level and the driver who sets the car on the road are aware of these problems.
The problem is that it seems to be a problem with either a new, redesigned fuel-pressure sensor or a new, redesigned electronic fuel-pressure control unit. The problem seems to be that there is no single manufacturer of either part. As a result, it seems that the problem is spread around.
I went to the dealership to get a replacement in August, and they said they can repair it at no charge, but it will take 5 months. I called Nissan and I was told that this is an issue that most customers must deal with and that it is not an issue that will be fixed by Nissan. It’s a bit like, “You’re not supposed to do that, but you are supposed to drive safely and obey the road rules.
I’m glad you did not get a problem like this. In fact, Nissan’s customer service is far better than any other dealership Ive ever dealt with. I could go on about the problems that Nissan is causing, but you get the idea. It’s also the exact reason why I am never going to go to another dealership again.
I think Nissan should concentrate on the car it makes, not the car its customers make. Its an easy comparison to make, but it makes little sense. Sure, if a customer is driving a Nissan, they are in control of their vehicle, but if the customer is the one in control of their car, it seems to me that the customer would have more control over it.
I can’t think of any other car companies that make vehicles you are in control of more than other companies that make vehicles you are not in control of. The problem is that customers of a company are typically not in control of the company they work for. The customer is the one that decides what happens to their money, and the customer’s decisions usually make no sense.
Sure, that sounds like a valid point. But when you go back and listen to the cars that other companies make, it seems like the problem is usually not so much that the car is not in the customer’s control as it is that the customer is not the one controlling the company. Nissan is a good example of that. It’s the customers who have the cars that are in their control. But in this case, it’s the customers who have the cars that are not in their control.
In 2013 Nissan’s pathfinder was a subcompact car with a manual transmission and a small engine. That’s not a car you’d want to drive every day to work and then buy again. If you owned a Nissan that was only a little more than 10 years old, you would have been happy to get rid of that car long ago. But there are some customers who just won’t listen to their owner (or their manager) and put their money where their mouth is.
