So my wife has a 2023 Platinum she bought new at the end of December and we are getting the gas smell both inside the car and while sitting in the enclosed garage now with 1,400 miles on the odometer.
Called the dealer she bought it from 2 hours away over in Indianapolis, IN and they know nothing about this, but called back and said they can see where Nissan is working on it. Until they get a recall notice on it, nothing they will do they said.
Then called our nearer Nissan dealer over in Champaign, IL which is an hour and a half away and they have had a couple of vehicles with the problem, but said they can't fix any of them until the recall is issued.
I asked both places if they could order the PCV hose and just put it on. Neither said they would since Nissan won't pay any warranty without the recall notice and there is no guarantee the hose they order is the improved one.
I asked if I could get put on a list for ordering a replacement hose as soon as they are available, but they said we'll just get a notice in the mail.
Should we be making an appointment with Service to have them look at it so that it's on record as having the issue? I hate driving 3 or 4 hours just to have them tell me the same thing as they did on the phone. By the time we get there, it will have ventilated enough that there won't be any gas smell inside the car and they'll just record that no problem was found.
How are some owners getting the hose replaced already and is it truly the updated part?
What happens if you sign up with the Class Action Lawsuit or needs to be done before you do?
Or should I file a complaint with the NHTSA first?
