Damn that really sucks ass. All those models with a recall. I guess that might be why i saw a couple 350's at the nissan dealer in the service garage (i don't mean the oil change etc cause that is a separate building) earlier. I was thinking, "a new car like that in the shop? something might be wrong". Perhaps this is why.

Yeah it sucks but it's not that big of a deal really.. you just take your car to the dealer and they fix it for free.

As I'm sure many of you know, there were quite a large number of 2002-03 Celicas that were recalled due to a Fuel Tank Check Valve Safety Recall. In the worst case scenario, your car could explode by just simply filling the gas tank. Nobody's perfect happywink

Don't be glad you have a Toyota. Toyota likes to issue TSB's instead of recalls.

The lift bolts SHOULD be a recall, but it's not.

At least Nissan doesn't leave this up to the owners's expense to fix.

The car can't explode, it simply overfills the gas tank because the valve falls into the tank, and when you fill up at a gas station the automatic shiut off doesn't work and it spurts out of the tank. happywink

Yes, I know that. And spilled gasoline could be ignited by an open flame, a spark from numerous possible sources (static electricity, a cell phone, etc)..which could cause an explosion if the fire reached your gas tank. I was quoting from the recall notice toyota sent me. I realize it is not LIKELY, but is possible. Like I said "WORST CASE SCENARIO". So, yes, the car COULD explode. Don't patronize me just for the sake of argument. I know what I am saying.

Go to your local dealer and they can inspect it (and replace, if necessary) for free. Mine's a '03 also, and I won't know if mine needs replacing until Wednesday when I take it in.
