I just had a discussion with a service advisor regarding the Fuel Level Recall (mine is affected btw). He said that he has had at least 6 vehicles come back after having the new fuel sending unit installed. He said one vehicle has been back 3 times because each of the 3 units was faulty. He suggested that I not replace it until I have an issue because it would be covered even if I was out of warranty at that point. This will also give Nissan time to work the bugs out. Sounds like a good idea to me even though Nissan has had 5 years to work the bugs out. Nissan needs to find a new supplier for these sending units.

This guy also has seen the radiator failure issue. He is the first service person I can find that will admit to it. He was not familiar with the bypass.

They have changed the part numbers, since back in I believe it was December of 2009. The new ones look just like the orginals, but the contacts and sweeps of the new ones look more "beefy" and the are shielded by a piece of plastic now, where as before they were in the open. Havent had an issue with mine for almost 4 months now since I replaced it.

im waiting on them to include more years. its the same part number for 05-09 so how is it that only a limited number(decided via VIN) are effected by the recall? i guess there hoping the guys like me(late in the build year 05) have already replaced it so Nissan can save some money.

My fuel level sending unit has been out for over 12 months. Left me stranded twice!! Good thing I have AAA. I just use the mileage odometer to keep track. I can get at most 312 miles per tank with my normal driving. I found that out the hard way, twice..

Nissan says just bring it in and well see if we will replace it or not. Got over 83K miles on 2006 Nismo and I'm long past warranty and just keep letting this issue go. But, it makes me disgusted at NISSAN that they just won't suck it up and guarantee to replace the thing for free.

they just cost me more money,time and hassle by not having my truck to make the money. One big circle of BS!

The stealership said that if it turns out Nissan would pay for it, good. But if Nissan decided not to pay for (apparently based on my recorded maintenance with the Dealership's only, your own personal upkeep in maintenance doesn't apply to their standard) then it would cost me around $600 bucks to have them replace it. For a part that last year (i have the page cached, saved and stored) that only use to cost $59. Now $100+ Shipping. And from what I read some of the replacement ones work and some don't. So like the last post WTF NISSAN.

I've voice my concerns to them and USA Nissan customer service even contacted me about this issue but all they say is bring it in and will see.

Well that's fine if you Stealership is in town, but if you are like me and live 100+miles out in the sticks that costs a lot of time to travel back and forth and not have no simple promise they fix for free.

just venting my 2 cents worth. best of luck to all.
