The seat still moves in all directions but it does rock now and if at the lowest level and I move it from front to back it makes a loud snap. From what I have read, the seat rail issue is actually a small plastic gear issue. I can possibly make a replacement in metal (benefit of where I work) or find a replacement and fix it it myself.
I have to say, that if my 2 year old car needs a major repair bill of $1000+ for a seat rail, I may have bought my first and last Nissan. I have owned GM before this and my 8 year old Grand Prix ran up about $1500 in 8 years for repairs. My 10 year old Camaro never had any issues until the engine died. These were not $40k cars either.
I love the MO but the high price of repair and attitude of the dealer makes me seriously reconsider a future Nissan. At least with GM I had 3 or 4 dealers to choose from.
I will have to wait until spring to take it apart and see what is really going on.

John! .... The dealer wants $1100 + tax to replace the whole track! All for the sake of a poorly designed, overworked small plastic gear - which would take 15 minutes to replace!
If all else fails, you shuld be able to get a seat track at: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...05&catalogid=2
for about $433. Good luck and let me know how this all works out for you.
