over the past few months i have had a clunk randomly when shifting from park to reverse or drive etc.. it wouldnt happen all the time, sometimes just a lil click, sometimes it would hesitate, then a loud clunk that i could feel. so i took it in for a U joint when it first started and it looked fine, since then it got worse... culprate, the rear diff was going out, and they are replacing it no questions asked.

also, they replaced my fuel level sensor again last month when it was in for oil change "the old one was fine" but the second one they put in acted all weired. so i had them look at that too. they said my gas tank was sinking in on the top, making it inaccurate. i was like WTF? but it also is being replaced free. and they gave me a rental versa for the weekend. i love my service advisor! :ugogirl:

cough cough, the ebrake works very well in the versa haha!!

I've read a lot about differentials being replaced on the earlier 2nd gen frontiers. Did they ever get them fixed? or do I still have to worry about my m226 taking a crap on me just after my warranty expires?

i've used my extended warranty too many times to be thankful, more worrisome.

how can a thick plastic gas tank sink on top?
my thoughts exactly lol :confused:

i dont know if the m226's break as easy, but mine defenately didnt have an easy life lol.

i asked if they would order me an m226, but they said they could only replace it with the original c200 if it was replaced by warranty.

HA! You have little to worry about. They break WAY before the warrenty runs out, thats how shlty they are!

I dont know if it has been fixed or not.

Not picking on you personally but one day someone on here is going to brag about something they did here and find out that the repair isn't being covered because the truck was being abused and they printed out the post as proof. If you don't think people from Nissan or dealer employees read these forums you're mistaken.
Same goes for Facebook, one day all this online networking will bite you in the a$$ if you're not smart.
Keep all underhanded dealings to yourself.

There is an old saying "three men can keep a secret, the other two are dead".
