    DON’T BUY NISSAN.

    I owned a brand new Nissan Sylphy since August 2008. Until 09/04/2010, my car mileages run up to 90,000 km.(Car age: 1 year 7 month).

    The quality problems I having so far as below: -
    1) Dashboard has bubble spot - changed on January 2010 - problem solved – reason given was Japan and Malaysia weather difference.
    2) Complaint on suspension noise - when turning and on uneven road (since 2nd service
    mileage 6710 km until 89,994 km). NOW 90,000 km only solve the problem with
    changing the caliper set !!!!!! All the while Nissan Malaysia only gives the solution
    of "Tighten Undercarriage" for this problem.
    3) Gear Oil Leaking - replace gearbox oil seal 2 time but problem still not solve. Now Nissan only agreed to replace a new gear box.
    4) Air Con Gas Leaking - replace cooling coil (recently) - problem solved at this moment, later don’t know yet.
    5) Everytime after service brake system, steering will have vibrate when apply brake (at
    100 km/hr) - SOLUTION FROM NISSAN MALAYSIA: TO SKIM BRAKE
    DISC!!!!!! until now my brake disc have been skimmed for 2 times and actually in between the period I have stop them for skimming because I worry on the brake disc thickness. Now I also stopping them since they said they want to skim for the 3rd times.

    Current condition of my Car.
    Since 6/4/2010 I collect my car until now,
    1). 2 unit of my engine mounting broken due to dismantling of engine and have been replaced recently.
    2). Knocking sound on steering when turning.
    all the above problem still not solve yet and I was so worry every time when I driving the car because I don’t know what others parts will spoil and when the brake system will gone off.
    Conclusion
    Don’t buy Nissan vehicles, you will regret for your whole life.
    Because Nissan Malaysia will not entertain your complaint, they will tell you the parts are under wear & tear category.
    Even though fuel consumption is low, but maintenance is very very high.
    REMIND : DON’T LET NISSAN No Skill Division (NSD) people check your car because they will twist & turn the facts.

    2). Knocking sound on steering when turning.

    this 1 very famous problem...even happen on livina & latio...its the steering shaft universal joint problemo...got clearance aka freeplay....even after replace a new 1...the knocking sound will come back after 3 months or more worst after 1 day....

    btw,the excuse that given by NSD was
    -manufacturer defect
    -the road here not smooth like japan 1(got many pot holes,uneven,bla bla bla)...
    -etc....

    all cars are mechanical item....thats why warranty given.

    i believe cars got problem are common, the mentality, attitude & the ability or expertise of those SC ppl to solve it are the main problem.....we don mind got problem coz nobody manufacture cars with problems. as long as solve it and we have peace of mind driving it.

    I agreed what you mention, car got problem are common but the main issue is that when problem
    occur, no solution is given and all the expertise are try to twist & turn the fact instead of solving it.
    I also understand that Nissan is an profit orientated corporation, but not up to level that just tell us that the parts are wear & tear.
    Example 1 : brake problem occur is everytime after they services the brake, before service no problem when apply brake.
    Example 2 : gear oil leaking, they have dismantle & install my engine 3 time, at the end only find out is not oil sear problem. during the process, 3 body mounting had broken due to their installation fault.
    Now, my engine noise getting lounder and lounder & have knocking soung when apply brake.
    Do you think I still need to have peace of mind driving it ?

    the most common solution in Malaysia for the brake vibrate when apply the brake is "to skim to disc"... wat the fcuk they thinking about...???
    no matter u r proton, p2, nissan, toyota or honda, all the service center's mech/foreman r all give u the same answer... why..?? cos skim r cheaper than change it & if change to many times, will spoil their reputation... another way in their mind is, this is not my car....:stupid:


    1 more thing, even u buy a set of Ap Racing 6pots calipers with disc set in 1 of the famous shop in Sunway, after the installation, the brake vibrate, they won't claim the new set of disc or get into the core of the problem... they will just skim it, 1 time, 2 times, 3 times... until the disc koyak.. then a word of "Goods sold are not exchangeable or returnable"....u kao tim sendiri la.... we not guaranty 1... hahahaha...

    brake system for most of malaysian, "dun bother, dun care... if vibrate, just skim it or treat it as ABS oredy engage".....:proud:

    is it a case of unlucky unit? cos i remember 1 guy who bought the City(the cvvt gearbox model) who complained the car had problems from day 2 of purchase till the day he sold it off a year later. 2 person's who bought the silphy at my workplace had nothing but compliments for their new car...but then maybe they just cant loose face if new car having problems la hehhehe

    i agree with Danz. need to make big hu ha and complain all over the place then only they will do something. warranty always puts the user at disadvantage since they choose how to fix the problem. complain higher up and things will normally get done. my boss sent his kembara to perodua SC to get his rear suspension nut changed and he had to wait 2 weeks to get it. had to go back everyday since they ask him to go n check then they made him wait at the counter while the clerks there main miang with the mechs...he got mad n called up perodua complaints department and demanded to talk to the area manager or anybody higher up...they got the thing done that very same day...FOC. then sent him a mail saying how sorry they were n all that. btw....my boss is a scottish guy so u can imagine how he was screwing them upside down hahahah

    would like to say hai to all the zerotohundred members since i'm one of the new join in babies in the forum today. :proud: .Knowing that lots of Sylphy car owner facing the caliper problems like me as well, here to share some effective solution where i had done. I went to a shop in Seri Kembangan, Selangor where near by my house 3 months ago to change my four tyres,after that i just share experience with the shop's boss regarding the caliper stuff that had been putting me in a very headache situation since i got my car on August 2008. Had sent to Nissan so many time for this problems in fact they had changed 2 sets for me, but still cant solve my problem......The tyres shop boss told me to give him a chance to fix the problem, i agreed, i leave my car to him for 1 day and he really help me to solve the problem with only RM 200 charges!!!so thank you!!!and i've been using the after modified caliper untill now still in very satisfied condition.
    Just to share this with all the Sylphy owner if u interested in fixing the problem, may send me PM then i can introduce u to that shop.
    P/S: 1).They not fixing your problem by putting lot of grease at the caliper pins like what Tan Cheong did before.
    2). Have to leave ur car 1 day for them to fix the problem.

    sorry to tell that i really have no ideal how they did it in details, he only told me that took out the calipers pin to do some modification at the rubber (i not even knoe that the caliper pins have rubber on it) :hmmmm: to me, as long as they really can settle the problems and the "krok krok" sound gone dissapear, it is very very good for me already.:biggrin:
