Consider going to the selling dealer and talking with the Owner of the dealership if possible. Calmly and in a non-threatening manner ask for his assistance. Let him know you are happy with the dealership but obviously you have issues with the car. Ask him what he thinks a solution is. Hear what he has to offer if anything. He may offer to get you into another car on the lot... of course an upgrade and more $ for you to pay. Yes, more $ but you will walk from the problematic car and throw your $ at a perhaps better / non-problematic car.. Again, calm and non-threatening with the dealer. Remember, you reap what you sow. Save the push / threats til a time when other approaches are exhausted.
Another approach... spend the $ and fix the car. Get that selling dealership to give you a good price on a warranty that will cover future repairs for x number of years. Could be the dealer will get you that warranty and then you go get the latest repairs under that warranty coverage. You never know what the dealer will come up with.
Right off the bat, I would say do not take your out-of-warranty MO to a Nissan dealer. Instead, find a reputable local shop you can trust. The local shop will be less expensive.
Let's look at what the Nissan dealership claimed... 1) your motor mount is "going"? Going where? It is either good or bad. I would ignore it for now. 2) One of the cats might be going? Who is he kidding? You could end up spending several hundred dollars just to find out it is fine. 3) Leaking rear shock costs $262? I hope that is for the pair... installed. 4) Camshaft sensor? Okay, that is probably legit. I recommend having a local shop replace the camshaft sensor and then see how the MO runs. If no other error codes appear then I would forget about the cats, and have a local shop replace check out the shocks. Rear shocks for the MO cost $25 each.
Normal stuff for a car with 80k? $4000 of quoted work all sequentially within 50 days? This isn't normal for any vehicle I've ever owned.
