About a hour and 15 mins.
They take you around the plant on a tram ,and you where head phones while they describe whats going on.
They say it takes about 24 hours to complete a vehicle and one rolls off the assmebly line every 28 seconds.

I was down that way when I went on a road trip a few years back. Didn't hit the nissan plant, but got to see the Corvette factory and the museum that was across the street. That was a neat tour. Each car was dyno tested before it left the factory to make sure it met the HP requirements

If they dyno tested it that kind of dispels the myth that you need any kind of break in procedure, don't you think?

did you talk to the guy that keeps forgetting to add the air cabin filters?
LOL I didnt get to speak with anyone.
It was fairly noisy plus we had headphones so we could hear the tour guide ,and Im pretty sure the tour guides didnt work directly for Nissan ,but were subcontracted for them.

THey said about 1000 on site employees were subcontracted.

I wanted to ask what the latest was with the timing chain components lol!
The guides were trained well enough to drive us through there and describe what was going on but they probably would have given me a blank stare if I asked that.

They had the very first 1983 Pickup the plant produced on display along side the first 86 Sentra , 93 Altima ,and a 05 Pathfinder.

Wish I could have taken pics , but no cams allowed.

The sad truth is they know there is/was an issue with those trucks and will fight you to the death trying to avoid repainting them on their dime.

I took that tour back in August...pretty impressive facility, rolls of steel go in one end and come out the other as fully assembled vehicles.

When I went a few years ago we got to talk to the techs in a room. I asked about the pinched Y pipe on the crossover. Never did get a good answer from them. He said it didn't affect anything. I disagreed with him and said that it was going to be my first mod Gibson Cat Back system.
It still was a great tour.

It is a great tour, did it 4 yrs ago and if I remember correctly they had a Q&A session before the tour.

It will def be one of the biggest buildings you'll ever see.
