Well then, your recourse is against the dealer who didn't perform the work you paid for and notify you of the failing suspension member. They're the ones to pursue.Actually as luck would have it, Piazza Nissan of Ardmore, on 08/02/2022 did some work on vehicle VIN No.: JN8AZ1MW4DW301652. The work required the car to be put on a lift and the charge was for $1238.50.
On the Invoice 236055, Item B , Health Check, MPI, "Perform Nissan’s 27 point vehicle inspection." Nissan’s Complimentary Multi-Point Inspection (CMPI). There are six categories to the CMPI.
The third category is titled UNDER VEHICLE. The first item is Rear Shocks/Rear Subframe/ Suspension.
No notice either in writing or verbally was given to me advising me of the catastrophic deterioration in that area. The Nissan factory trained mechanics could not see any problems.
I left the agency in total comfort that my vehicle was roadworthy, repaired and inspected by Nissan.
In a legal sense, that's probably irrelevant to your situation. What I think matters (and perhaps might be actionable) is the faulty work of the dealership's service department.Thank you Pilgrim. I naively thought that Nissan would be concerned about the danger to their other customers. They are not.
A correction: Your experience with THE DEALER is that an inspection was made and nothing was noted.My experience with Nissan is that an inspection was made and nothing was noted. This needs to be fixed. Money talks and BS walks.
You're not alone! The term does seem off, but it's pretty descriptive.The car was purchased new and I would like to add that I am extremely grateful for all the comments on the original post . I am told that the failed parts will be available for inspection next week. I was amused by the PA standards discussing “rotted” parts. I did own a 1946 MG TC that had frame parts made of oak. Wood rots, iron rusts , maybe I’m grandfathered in😉
This is a good point. The "inspection" was not the only time this problem could have been spotted. Anyone who had a view of the rear suspension while doing tire work might have seen it.Your mechanic and/or tire installer should've caught it long time ago. Even I myself check the under carriage of my Murano atleast a couple of times a year because I know it's an older car that sees it's fair share of snow/salt and extreme weather.
