Last night when I stopped to put gas in, unscrewed the cap and it fell apart in my hand. The center white part just fell out. Nice design for a new truck. Now where do I find a new gas cap? Hate to go back to the dealer, the one I bought the Frontier from sucks.
The cap failed on my '06 too when it was just a month old. The black handle just spun around and the bottom section stayed in place. What really sucked was that I was on a family trip and almost out of gas. It was late in the evening on a Saturday and the nearest Dealer was an hour distant .... on Monday morning.
I squeezed the black part of the cap and after a lot of struggle, finally got it to bite on the lower section and removed it all for a fill up. Whew!
A Dealer in NC replaced the cap on Monday and I was on my way in ten minutes.

If any of you would have had the bad experience I have had with Nissan you would NEVER want to go back to the dealer to just try, I said try to get a gas cap replaced under warranty. I have owned Toyotas for 40 years and have put on over 1 million miles on thee Toyota RAV4's and never experienced the bad coustomer relations I have in the past 5 months from Nissan.
I guess I will just duct tape it together and tell people that ask why what a bunch of crap this pickup is.
so you'd rather tape up a cap than spend under $15 for a new cap at any auto parts store or even walmart? you want to make a statement that nissan is crap by taping up a cap that no one will see since you will drive with the gas lid closed? you want to generalize that ALL nissan dealers suck because of a bad experience at one?
