Well, so much for laughing at Toyota owners (of which I am one). This morning I awoke to KTVU announching that my 2008 Infiniti QX-56 was recalled for 2 separate issues.
One, and the least important to me safety-wise is the fuel gauge inaccuracy issue. This causes your fuel gauge to read incorrectly. So incorrectly, in fact, that Nissan is telling us to make sure we have more than 1/2 tank of gas all the time until we get it fixed. The other, more important one to me, is that Nissan reports that three instances have been reported where brake pedal pins have partially disengaged, resulting in a loss of normal braking ability. This one bothers me a lot since I do a lot of driving in congested areas — making it more likely to bite me in the long run. So, off to Beschoff Infiniti this afternoon to get me loaner car and let them have my SUV. At least I am not affected by Nissan’s worrying driveshaft yoke issues of recent weeks.
