If I am not mistaken, the forum already has more than 200 members??? On what basis can we make sure Nissan know that Herrie & kie represent the majority of these members?

I - for one - am in full support of these proposals. I like Wynvat's way of reasoning and will gladly co-sign and support such a collective action.
We own 3 Nissan products, and to date our experiences with Nissan dealerships have been disappointing.
Except in the case where MAGNUS Nissan fully stood in for the costs when a fan belt broke, hit the reservoir tank on the radiator and sheered it clean off [just outside Kuruman - Feb 2008, in 43 degrees, at 11:30 Am] - BUT - we had to fight a bit on that one. The service instruction specified "check & replace if needed all V-belts, Rad hoses - prepare vehicle for long trip to Namaqaland in high summer ..]
Since - we have been following Pieter, the service advisor, & Gert, to the mechanic, to the various dealers as they were moved about - thus we have now ended up with Imperial Nissan Menlyn. - and now, with Agarob standing there for weeks after the engine was destroyed due to an incorrect diagnoses from their "computer"
(they diagnosed the power loss was due to a faulty switch on the gearbox, instead it was the diesel pump that overfuelled, and durung the long trip to Botswana, 200 km north of Ghanzi, the pistons melted (actually, burnt cracks in the cylinder top)
In my claim that the expense is fir Nissan's [or the dealer's] account - I got told that it was a "non-concern" of Nissan SA, due to the milage of the vehicle [225 000Km]
bid jou dit aan --

BUT - last week Wednesday I get a call back from them - informing me that they will "review the case"
I hope to get their "reviewed" results tomorrow. - i wil keep you informed.
O K - wayyyyyyyyyyy off topic - admin is welcome to "edit & cut" on this one.
Wynvat - Oompie hoop jy raak verder aangespoor om voort te gaan met die opstel van so 'n skrywe.

Ek sekondeer Oompie se "hoop" en wil sommer voorstel dat Wynvat met Herrie in verbinding tree om sodoende die groter poging van stapel te stuur.

In view of the fact that Herrie is already involved in an initiative, and the workshop to be held at Mark White Nissan on the 28th, i think that we should wait for Herrie's feedback on what was discussed at the workshop, and take it further from there. It will probably mean that if any further action is taken, it will only happen in the new year. The fact remains: something should be done. Nissan should not be allowed to sell us R half million vehicles, but neglect to provide trained technicians to maintain them. I feel quite strongly about this, and I am prepared to assist in any such venture.
