Nissan - Are they in trouble?
-Cheap interiors in the 02-04 Altima, current Pathfinder, and 03-04 or 05 Infinti G35.
-Nissan/Infinti has four of the worst rated models reliability wise in the current issue of Consume Reports: the Quest Mini-van, Qx 56, Titan, Armada.
-Sloppy exterior styling on the 04 Maxima, and 04 Quest Minivan. Resale vale on the Maxima CR just declined resale value to below average and reliability is just average. When Built in Japan the Maxima was above average in reliability.
-Reliability surveys indicate Nissan's build quality has slipped from being close to Honda and Toyota in the 80's and 90's to anywhere from being in the middlepack(Consumer Reports) to the bottom of the pack(JD powers) in these surveys. Infinti's reliability scores are still at the top of surveys.
-I have heard 350Z owners having problems with tire blowouts.
-Problems with build quality a their New Mississipi plant which produces the Quest, Titan, and Amrmada(I think). Apparently sending enginneers from Japan to the Mississippi plant did not help the build quality/reliability of these cars in the 05 model year from the 04 model year.
-Titan sales are slow.
-Nissan sales werre down 13.3 percent last month in the US so has Nissan's sup-par build quality of late finally caught up to them in the Us? Did Nissan CEO Carl Ghosn too much cost costing at once when he first arrived at Nissan considering Nissan's falling reliability? Are Nissan's build quality problems all on the Mississipi plant considering their falling reliability scores.
