I've only had my Frontier a month (900 miles) and, knock wood, haven't had any problems yet.stevex8x said:I recently had my check engine light come on and took my truck in to the dealer for evaluation. I was told that a hose that goes to the intake had cracked and was leaking. I was told that it had to be replaced immediately. I just spoke with the dealer and they are working on it and said it is going to take a little longer because they had to partially dis-assemble the intake manifold to get the new hose installed. I haven't found any recalls for this issue.
My concern is that I have a truck that is 6 months old and now it has to have what sounds like quite an extensive repair job. Do I need to be concerned with the quality of their work or worry that I'm going to have more problems in the future? Anyone else out there have this problem?
Thanks in advance!
Ps. For what it's worth I'm not very good with working on cars...
A 6 month old hose cracking doesn't sound impressive, but, FWIW I would think there are a lot of minor things on any car these days that may result in an extensive repair job. I recently replaced my $38 water pump on my Geo, and would have had to pay a few hours labor on top of that. Plus, I had a leaking crankshaft gasket; a $5 part that the book said was 8 hours labor
I got the extended warranty on mine, so I'm hoping that will pay for itself with any number of "minor" repairs that may crop up.
