Dear Guru:

Let me vent first. Finding a trustworthy car garage is a lifetime mission. Surprisingly I have found many frustrated Nissan/Infinity users that agree that dealers and garages are ruining Nissan & Infinity’s reputation by hiring young and inexperienced people. When a car may need repair, they fix the wrong part so you have to keep on coming to fix what was wrong in the first place...but for every inspection guess who pays for it! In addition, I cannot get ride of my car because the Blue book value is less than what I owe.L
Anyhow.... I am just venting.
The real question is the following: I bought a 1999 Infinity G20, automatic. Last year (Feb.2004) it started with a weir pulsation that I could feel on brakes pedal, staring wheel, gas pedal, and chassis. In fact, at low speeds, the car feels like a jeep. When I slow down (not pushing brakes) or reverse and I turn the steering wheel all the way, it really feels like going up and down (one side of the car going up while the other side goes down). The dealer changed rear rotors, turned front ones, change pads, aligned, balanced and rotated tires…they did everything to those poor brakes. After I got my car back, this annoying pulsation was still there. I left the car there for one more week and they finally got ride of the pulsation but replacing the “THROTTLE POSITION SWITCH”. A year later, the pulsation is back. I took it to another dealer, which fix the brakes, rotate and aligned the tires and the pulsation is still there. I never told them about the throttle switch theory, and this new dealer’s conclusion was that tires need to be changed. I really do not know what to do. Tires are very expensive and if I change them and the vibration persists, it may be the throttle switch again, which it should last more than a year. Finding out what is causing this pulsation will be very expensive. Please, with all your knowledge, would you guess the cause? . Have you heard of this before? I have check for recalls and similar cases on the net, but I have found nothing that resembles my case. I tell you what…I got this Infinity because I though that it was a reliable, robust car. I should have kept my Geo Metro, which so far has been more reliable than this so-called luxury car. Well actually, the Infinity dealers cleans your car for free :)

Thank you.

Johanna
