It seems to me that Nissan should, when I bring my Mada in for *any* service, check *all* the TSBs, and see if I need anything done. If so, then let me know and get me scheduled for the fix(es).

I know this would be more costly, and some of them are based on whether symptoms are found (i.e., subjective), but they should still check them, and let me know if they find anything.

Otherwise, I have to sift through them, figure out which ones are relevant (2005 model year), and then decide if I want to go fight with the dealership to get the problem(s) fixed.

I dont' mind fighting if I have to, but they should be proactive with this stuff.

Any opinions? I'm thinking of taking it in and saying something like " I know there are X number of TSBs published, please see which of these are relevant and let's get them done". I wonder how they'd react - probably tell me out of hand that none are relevant, and wait to see if I return..

They won't. Like all makers they will fix what you report and/or dangerous items. Others will go until you ask. Often a TSB is written because only a small portion of the vehicles are having a problem. This is why they don't do them all. ;)

I've been having problems with my A/C unit in my 2005 Xterra. I found this place discussing the problems with the Armada. I seem to be having the same problem. I mentioned this to the Nissan dealer to see if it may be the same issues. The service manager stated he has never heard of the Armada A/C TSB. Oh, and by the way they found no issues with my X A/C. Go figure. They are all idiots and whores. It's a shame we all spent big money to purchase a vehicle, and in my case bought an extended warranty, and yet we have to FIGHT for fixes to issues that should have never been there in the first place!

I would print out the ones you want to have done and bring them.

I went to my local dealer, Douglas Nissan in Huntington Beach, CA and they looked up all TSB's and askeed if i experienced any and fixed everything. They also checked all history with Nissan.

When I owned my Xterra, Nissan always did check for TSB's... And they always seemed to take so damn long to fix, but I got a free rental each time... Not to mention I would rather have it fixed. It was cool because they would also automatically print out a list of TSBs and even take me back to show me what the fix was....

Hmm. Maybe I should travel to Huntington Beach..

It is a hard decision; I don't want them labeling me as a trouble maker, and withholding service if I can avoid that, even though I think I'm entitled to what I would call good service.

I was thinking originally that I'd just meander in every few weeks/months and complain about something, and if they push back, eventually show them the TSB.

Brought my Armada in for it's first oil change at Mossy, they asked me how the truck was running, I mentioned the TSB's, and they said no problem and have scheduled an apptmnt for both the AC and Brakes next week.

Again, these guys are on it and want to be sure I am happy with my truck.
